Thrifty Thursday

Patterson book    $.50
Cloche                 $5.99

That is the most I have ever paid for a cheese dome. However, they are becoming REALLY hard to find. I think the blog world of cloches is getting around my neighborhood!!

I had seen this little LOVE  sign on another craft blog and thought it was too cute. It was so easy too. 
 I bought the frame on clearance at Target, $2. The buttons are from Michaels, $2. I used black felt I already had and glued it directly to the glass. I used hot glue to glue the buttons on. Easy peasy project. I'm so happy to finally find something to do with my tray. I bought it 6 months ago from Joann's looking like this:
I sprayed painted it Heirloom white. I think I paid $6 for the tray. I love my Valentine table runner too. Another great find at Pottery Barn Kids AFTER Valentine's Day a few years ago.

A little Valentine decor

So since I have been unsuccessful in finding my accent table, this will have to do.
 This is a SMALL nook in my china hutch. It sure doesnt hold a lot to display. I bought the sign ($10) and plate ($6) at my little Beehive store. The heart dish came from Goodwill for a $1. Lastly the plate holder came from Michaels, $6 after using my 40% off coupon, of course. It was originally black but I think it looks better painted in Heirloom white.

Thrifty Thursday

Here are my finds for the week:

Nicholas Sparks book $.50
Ceramic pumpkin $2.00
New straw wreath $1.00
New fake snow $.50

I cannot wait to use the fake snow this winter. I looked everywhere for it last year with no success. Apparently it was meant to be since I'm sure I would have paid a lot more then $.50! I hope to cover the wreath with conversation hearts. The pumpkin was a little more then I wanted to pay, but it was too cute to pass up.

My fav

One of my favorite shops is At the Beehive. Its a small local shop filled with antiques and crafts. I hit it up every week and never come home empty handed!!! They have really cute and unique gifts. 
Here are my latest finds:
 The eggs were $.50 each and I think they will look great in my new eBay jar. The sign was $9.95 and I love it. I cannot wait for Spring to arrive.

I just cannot be stopped!!

Recently I was introduced to Willow House. I love their goodies. However, they can be overpriced in my eyes at time. Time to search eBay. I found the same glass jar from Willow House on eBay. It was cheaper and I  had eBay bucks so it was too good to pass up. I think a few Easter eggs and moss would be really cute inside.
