Thrifty Tuesdays

Just popped in to show you some of the things I got today. Not a ton of stuff (thankfully!) but some really neat treasures.
A wool sweater to make one of these. And the fun yellow vintage fabric is about 2-3 yards and was only $1! I see some sundresses for the wee one in the near future (tonight?).
I spotted these candlesticks and could tell by the look of the paint that they were some kind of good pottery. I thought maybe they were McCoy but the bottom was marked Cowan. I did some research and this pair sells for between $15-$35 on Ebay. I paid $1!
I was extremely happy to find this painting. I had been eyeballing a small, less well done painting for a few weeks at the same store. It was $10 and I honestly didn't know if I even wanted to pay that for it. This one was larger and didn't have a price. When I asked the lady how much it was she said $6...and it was half price day! $3?! Woohoo! I know paintings are supposed to go at eye level (right?) but I had another idea for this one.
We have very high ceilings in our downstairs and the empty space above this vanity in our entry area looked weird. I think this painting really fills up the space nicely. What do you think?


  1. love the wool sweater and the fabric. I hope your puppet turns out nicely!

    best wishes,

  2. Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started on it. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great finds! The little corner is really coming together and the painting works beautifully.

  4. Thanks so much! I'm really enjoying how this room is turning out :)
