Thrifting Frenzy


Time to share a few of my favorite things from some recent thrifting excursions!!!

Vintage mint green statement necklace.........LOVE.......



Paint by number set that a lovely blog buddy identified as Roses In Bloom.....



J. Crew gingham top.  Original tag attached.  Marked down to $4.98.....



A mirror ($2.50) that I can't wait to spray paint and put in my newly revamped guestroom.....



The cutest little footstool that you ever did see..........



Annnnnd I couldn't resist this Christmas find......



Even though he is a little creepy.  Sort of gnome-like maybe?

I feel like he's watching me.

  7. Ooh, I love every single thing! Except maybe creepy Santa...but I admit I have one of those too, from my Grandmother. We call him "Evil Santa," but he's remarkably similar. ;) That necklace is STUNNING!

  11. You found some incredible things. That green necklace...amazing. The mirror...beautiful. The foot stool...unique. The Santa, yeah, he is just a little creepy. What would be even more creepy, though, is if you kept him out all year round :)

  12. Wow! Such awesome finds. Love that necklace and the JCrew top. ;) Although I have to say that the Santa Gnome is just the teeniest bit on the creepy side. Just a little bit. ;)

  15. I never seem to find anything worthwhile when thrifting but YOU hit the jackpot! Here from YOLO and a new follower. Good luck with the new year! It's really cool that you teach flag routines, I was always mesmerized by those girls when I was marching around in the drum line.

  24. Thanks for the shout out! All your finds are fantastic but I do adore that foot stool. And you may want to take that Santa to school with you - he might help keep the kids in line. What were they thinking when they made him?!
