Sissie's "Thriftique" Weekly Finds!

Hi blogerettes!  I'm back to show yall some more of my great "thriftique" finds.  So get comfortable and come on in. 

I made some scones for you.  Hope you like them...

Grab yourself a pretty pink tea cup.....

Now, let's have a cup of tea and talk about thrifting.
Oops, I'm not sure how Aunt Tillie got  in here.....
She's been known to add a touch of
joy juice to hers......for medicinal puposes, of course.

Okay, first up is this sweet little rose pianted bowl found at
Habitat for 50 cents!

This little shelf was so ugly that no one would buy it.  So, me being me, saw potential.  I painted it white and added, yes you guessed it,
another one of those fleur-de-lis rub-ons that I am so obsessed with.

I thought this would go great with my chalkboard. And, for $1.50 I couldn't go wrong!

I have a thing for clocks and this little stainless steel
cutey had to come home with me for $4.00 from
"Bon Marche" Goodwill!
I think it needs a fleur-de-lis rub-on, don't you?

Found this great Paris wall decal at
HomeGoods.....gosh, I love that store!

I hope you enjoyed visiting today and having tea and scones.
Oh, one more thing, I wonder if my Mr. Sissie would mind it I put a fleur-de-lis on his....

Well, maybe not


Tracey said...

Love your sense of humor Sissie! And I too love HomeGoods...you do find the best stuff there though I must say!!!

Everything looks marvelous!!

Kendall at Finesse Your Nest said...

Go ahead and do the boxers. Remember the thing of better to ask forgiveness than permission. :)

Gosh darn that Aunt Tillie! She gave me the slip and now I know where she wound up! She's a sly old broad - don't let that innocent (?) expression fool you!

I love your finds, but today I love your scones even more! Me love scones. Muchly. Please pass the clotted cream.......

Janean said...

you truly show that one gals's trash is another gal's treasure! great job.


I am bumming because all the picture won't load up for me to see... I will have to pop back later and check again. I know that what I will find will be gorgeous of course!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Oh Sissie! You always find the neatest treasures!! I am loving on your scones right now...yum!

Kendall at Finesse Your Nest said...

Hey Sissie! Just wanted to let you know your NEWBIE feature is UP on my blog! Here's the address!

Rhondi said...

Hi Sissie
Thanks for leaving a comment so I could visit you too. Your beautiful header would be perfect for my White Wednesday party today. It's always fun to meet another blogger from NC too!
Hugs, Rhondi

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Sissie you are just tooooo funny....this picture of the woman is too much.
Love all you finds.

Shellbelle said...

Well, I found you via my new bloggy friend Kendall at Finesse Your Nest. When I saw the photo of your living room, I just knew I had to pop in. Who knew you would have tea and scones upon my arrival? Oh yes, I'm going to have a lot of fun visiting you!

Tracie said...

Scones are yummy!! Now I feel an overwhelming urge to visit a coffee shop (or call my grandma for her scone recipe, but I'm sure you can guess which one of those choices will win out!)

I love the Paris decoratiion. Very cute!

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

Okay Sissie, not only do I have talent envy...now I have "thriftique" envy! Do you have treasure radar? Fabulous finds my friend and somehow I don't think Mr. Sissie would be shocked if he found a fleur-de-lis on his knickers....bwahahaha!

Love and hugs,

Vicki said...

Hi, Sissie,
I would love a delicious scone and some tea. I might "doctor" mine up along with Aunt Tillie. You always find the most wonderful "bargains" to share with us!! I hope you are having a lovely week, sweet friend! Vicki

Chrissy said...

Kendall at Finesse Your Nest said...

Hey Sissie! Thank you so much for participating in my Wednesday "NEWBIE" feature! I had so much fun putting together my fave "shabby cottage" pics. But, I have to tell you it was hard to narrow it down. Everything is just so beautiful!

Sherrie said...

Oh yes, you are so shy.....not! I was loving your finds, scrolling down your post and then I got to the boxer shorts. Just think that could be a whole new fashion line. I think you should go for it!

Mollye said...

Oh you do know how to tickle a girls funny bone. I think you should be an honorary Louisiana citizen aka "coonass" with all your fleur-de-lis obsessions! They are all beautiful. And by the way Congrats on being featured on Kendall's blog. You ARE interesting and we all knew it from Hello. XXMollye
