My exciting Thrift Store Finds

I just love it when you bloggin sweeties show and tell all about your thrift store finds.  So, I thought I would share a few things that I found the other day.  First I hit the Goodwill store and here's what I found..................

This sweet little canister was $2.00.  It was plain, so I added
the fleur-de-lis motif and the french ribbon......ooh-la-la!

I also found this cute silver candlelabra and I am
wondering if yall think I should leave it tarnished or
or paint it??????
Oh, it was $2.00!

How about these great little cloches!
They were 50 cents each. (my heart started
palipatating when I saw them!!)

Stopped at Michaels and spied these little
round etched mirrors, so I added some more of that
French ribbon and another fleur-de-lis motif.....
and I think they are cute.

Hopped over to Home Goods, my most favorite store
in the whole wide world.  They were having
50% off all Christmas, so I got these
three mercury glass candle votives (I already bought
one set, full price) At 50% off they
were 3.50!

There's more, but I don't want to wear yall out, so I'll
save some more to show you later.
Oh, I'm so happy..........I love, love, love a good

OMG! Every single thing you got is amazing!! I love what you did with the canister. Cha-Ching! You scored big. Can't wait to see the rest. :)

O SISSIE...OOO...If I lived close to you, I would come over and arm wrestle you for that first black and white canister...it is SO to die for.
Everything else is just perfect. I know how excited you get when you find something cute for nearly nothing. I just seldom get that thrill when I buy something brand new and pay full price forit.
xo bj


Oh Sissie!!
I am loving all that you picked up. You did a great job with that little white canister. I think your candelabra would look great in white...or as is. I have one tucked away that I have been meaning to paint for months... what is taking me so long? Can't wait to see the rest of your finds. Blessings and hugs!

Cindy said...

What a lucky dog you are! Great finds, and you added your touch to make perfection :)

Oh, Sissie, you hit the JACKPOT!!!! I so wish I could go shopping with you!! I just love it all!! Is the fleur de lis a stencil?

I think I'd leave the candlelabra as is :) Perfect!!

Oh Sissie sweetie...
I am loving the black and white pot. Oh my gosh Girl that turned out beautiful. You did an awesome job. Totally beautiful. I just love it, love it, love it. Now I have to know where did you find the fleur de lis motiff? It is so pretty. And the same for the mirrors, where did you find the mottifs? So elegant looking.

I love the pink candle votiffs? Were the crowns already on there? Anyway they look like little crowns.

I have got to come and shop with you. Oh my gosh what fun you had. I never score that BIG.

I love it. Hope your day was beautiful. Mine was very hectic, and thank God it is over. Tomorrow will be a new day.

Take care sweetie. We will talk before New Years. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

You have some wonderful finds there, Sissie. I love what you did with the canister...you can never have enough in any room. And the cloches are great!! You will have fun with those. I love the mercury glass votives. Of all the candles I had lit over Christmas, the tea lights in my mercury glass holders were the prettiest. Something about the way the light flickers...love it!!

Have a happy and healthy New Year, my friend!! :-)


Ginger said...

You really found some bargains and they are really great. I am partial to mercury glass. I love the silver candelabra, I think I would paint it white if it was mine, but either way it is beautiful. Have a Happy New Year.

Okay...I have decided that I must visit you and make you take me shopping! You find the cutest stuff!

I vote for leaving it tarnished!

Hi Sissie,
I thought I was a pretty good bargain shopper, but I may have just met my match.lol I LOVE that canister, esp. after you got your hands on it. Let's see you got it for 2 dollars...how 'bout I give you $5???

You lucky lady! Amazing finds! Wishing you a new year filled with happiness!

Mollye said...

Good Morning Sunshine..............Thanks for visiting so early in the morning and wow what a stash of treasures you scored. The candlesticks I think I would paint chippy aqua and put some divine pink candles with lots of bling on them, ya know the stick on rinestones. Yeah real trash chic. Everything else is just gorgeous the way it is and you made the canisters just perfect. Happy New Year, Mollye

Sissie, You have a great eye and a real flair for taking something and making it reflect you. You're also pretty darn lucky with your finds!

I say leave it tarnished.....but what do I know?

Happy New Year!!

I'm dying over your finds! 1st of all...the closest Home Goods for me is 45 min. away. Maybe that's a good thing, because I've never gotten out of there w/o spending a fortune. 2nd, I love how you embellished the canister & mirrors, darling. 3rd..where is your Goodwill? I may be willing to drive it for that kind of stuff. Lastly, have a fantastic New Years! Lisa

Vicki said...

Oooh, la, la!! Sissie you found some wonderful things. I like how you embellished them, too. What a great buy on those cloche! I have been looking for some, hope I can find some as inexpensive as the ones you found. Have a happy, happy new year, sweet friend! Love and blessings! Vicki
