Thrifty Finds

Several of you wanted to see my Pottery Barn Console, I paid $64.99 for it, the original price was on the bottom, $349.00. I think I will be painting it black and distressing some. What do you think? I have black chairs and table that share this space in the breakfast nook.

My weekend was busy with guests and my husbands 30 year H.S. reunion this weekend so am posting some of my recent Goodwill finds. Please hook up with Mr. Linky on Rhoda's new blog at Southern Hospitality to see many more thrifty finds.














Laid my eyes on these the moment I walked in the door, 4 sweet bunny plates $.99 each.



Sweet platter for $.99. love it!



This is a decorative plate was $.50, label on back say's $9.99 HomeGoods


This whole container filled to the brim with Christmas ornaments, $3.99. There were layers of ornaments. Whoo Hoo love this one. I wasn't able to see the contents before I got it home,cause they had it all taped up, but that was part of the fun of it.
Been wanting one of these, $7.99 perfect condition, barely used.


This sweet little painting for $.99, perfect in our beach cottage guest room.
