Wednesday Bargains

I believe, my favorite day has to be changed from Saturdays to Wednesdays. (My day to go thrifting at the Salvation Army and second hand shops.) Somedays of course are better than others, however, last week, I hit it big, take a look...



Strolling along in "The Thrifty Shopper" not finding much of anything, then all of a sudden, I stumble on this sign... cost was $3.99, check out the colors of the letters, perfect match to the cherry kitchen. This beauty is hanging above the kitchen sink and window.





Walk a few steps, and here daughter & I find this cutie for daughters country decor (we have the same taste when it comes to decorating our homes) she took it home and placed it on her diningroom wall.












For all of you who visit the Farm Chick Paula at The Fraker Farm, she has been educating us on bee's and hives. So, it was ironic to find this on the very day I read her blog, about the bees and each of their jobs.






Then we spotted this little cow decor for only $.99 it also went home with our daughter and she placed this in her little kitchen.










Browsing around a bit more, getting ready to head out of the store, when suddenly, this catches my eye. Oh, I love lanterns, so this went into the cart, brought her home with me, cleaned her up, placed a small candle inside and placed it on the coffee table in my livingroom. Any Idea what year this sweet lantern was made? There doesn't seem to be any stamps on it, but the globe is a bronze color and very thick, I can almost see someone way back in the day, carrying her to the outhouse.... I got her for $3.99 which to me wasn't that bad.
























I also collect baskets, and hang them along the wooden beam rafters that make up our ceiling. I found at the Salvation Army the little star shaped basket last Wednesday, and you cannot see it in this photo (on the other end of the beam) a long bread basket.

I love my home, and all my surroundings, It's warm and very cozy, it's me and who Iam...

Come on in, have some coffee, tea or hot chocolate, and we'll chat awhile.......

Today, is Wednesday, It's a warm, windy, and very wet day, good day to go treasure hunting.

Blessings,

Mel

I absolutely love that lantern! It is beautiful to me!
Don't you just love getting a bargain? Wednesday is senior day at Salvation Army stores here--that means 25% off most things ( not clothes ). You got some great bargains.
I'm a big fan of Paula's blog. Love her stories!
