Functional Friday Linky Party #15

I had the best day! The hubster and I had a chance to shop at a couple of thrift stores!

Although, we didn't get tons or any huge pieces... there is a particular space, use or project for each item. I'm super excited!
We originally went so that I could try to find some frames to makeover for some of my Cross Stitch projects. We found three! Two of them were only $2.99 and the other was $4.99!

More finds were...
* Wall cubes to use in the kiddos rooms. I'm thinking that I can paint them to match.
* A brand new toilet seat cover for $4.99! Our wood seat turned blue after I used cleaning wipes on it. :(
* A small metal "Live" floral sign for $1.99!
* A pair of Old Navy jeans for me... looks to be worn only a couple of times for $6.99.
* A jumbo checker board with jumbo checkers for the kiddos. We paid $8.99. A bit more than I would have liked to pay, but the kiddos loved it!
* Last but not least... a lamp and lampshade for $10!! And.... it's one of those fancy touch lamps!

I was also finally able to get my two Topiary Cross Stitch pictures framed....
I purchased the frames at Dollar General. They were marked down to $2.00 each!

The topiary patterns can be found in the Jeanette Crews Designs booklet titled Floral Fantasy.

  1. I love Thrift stores! It feels so good to get good quality stuff cheap. And finding vintage stuff is so awesome or challenging myself to see things with paint or re-purposed... I could go on and on -LOL!
