Fabulous Friday Finds

Ok whoever sent the good thrift vibes my way last weekend thank you, thank you very much. Two estate sales and  a few garage sales yielded this haul
Yep, it was a good day. 
These two handmade kids cupboards are killing me with their cuteness

The lady having the estate sale was in her 70's and said her dad made them for her when she was a little girl. Aww. How sweet. Kinda amazed me that she hung onto them all these years then sold them at a sale for 10 bucks. Look, the drawers were made out of cigar boxes and were still full of little kitchen utensils
What a good daddy :)
Also hit all the holiday categories. Christmas finds included two santa mugs, tons of Christmas cards and seals this awesome box with a a snowman that once held cherry flavored marshmallow candy, also a box o' knee huggers

That's right, a whole box.

Thanksgiving finds were some turkey paper plates and napkins and nut cups that look like...Not sure, maybe corn stalks?

One lone egg for Easter
One even lonelier napkin for Valentines day
4th of July brought my absolute fav find of the day
Awesome Old Glory picture. 
Even found some New Years paper hats! Old or not? Can't decide. Told you I hit every holiday!

Like that wasn't enough I also found all this
A PINK princess phone, AND a TURQUOISE desk phone. They are sitting on an old Sunkist Lemons crate. Cute blue metal Boycraft tool box, an old metal roly cart, a huge locker basket, an old metal bike basket, two globes, two wooden yo yo's (for my sons collection) a Remple rubber lamb, a box of buttons, and a red tin bread box. . Wanna see what was in that red breadbox? 
These two cool old cans. Check out those graphics!  You think these were coffee cans? If so I would have started drinking coffee just to buy these. The circus fabric makes me smile and those bird clothes pins are sahweeet! So yeah, a good day! Well, since this post is already this long I will throw one more photo at ya. So it was also prom weekend and my twins Hunter and Hailey both went. They are seniors this year and they are my youngest kids so this was my last prom ever! Tear. Aren't they adorable? 

And no, they didn't go together! Ha! This was before the dates arrived. And no, that isn't beer in my sons hand, it's a diet coke (I think? I hope?)  Have a great week!

Thrifty finds

So my  finds have been sorta meh lately. What's up with that?? There are a bunch of estate sales and garage sales this weekend so maybe my luck will change. I'm jonesin for a good haul. Anyway, on to the finds.
I got the cute red canisters at an antique store (10 bucks for the set!) the rest came from Goodwill. The plaid thermos set is like brand new, small ball jar (.99!) and the placemat is oilcloth. I actually bought two of them for a project. Here is what the back looked like
And here is what I'm working on
Some fun bunting. Still gotta sew it together so it should  be done sometime around never. I'm terrible at finishing things but I think I'll give this a try cuz come on, it's adorable!
Also got this old readers digest book cut into a M and a little cream color stool at a garage sale. I took all my Easter decs down so I redid my shelves. I hate styling shelves. I look on Pinterst and think, heck ya, I can do that, then go to do it and crap, I got nothin. Do you guys do that? Anyway I switched it all up and this is what I came up with. Thoughts??
Seems maybe too busy? Add some greenery? Chuck it all and start over? Well for now it can stay cuz I'm way to tired to care. That's it for now. Have a super glorious thrifty week, and send some good thrift vibes my way!!
