Bargain shopping

Every once in a while I get an itch to go thrifting. I think its the hunt that I like and finding something that will work in my home at rock bottom prices. Here are some of my finds.

I'm always on the look out for serving platters. This is actually a platter but for display. I liked the color because I have a lot of red accents. Right now its on a stand but I think I might hang it with a collage of pictures somehow.

These are individual blocks. I like the black color and the odd sizes of the letters.

This welcome sign is attached together with brackets. It came with interchangeable pieces for each month. Heart for February. Next month is a green clover for St. Patricks Day. Right now it's on top of the fridge by my apple topiary.

I have been searching for these. So glad that I found two, even though one is slightly taller than the other one. I can see me filling them with red berries or sea shells. I'm not sure where to put them yet, maybe the sofa table.

A black iron candelabra. Love! Maybe I'll put it on the piano with burgundy or ivory candles.

Cute heart wreath for Valentines Day. I like all the conversation hearts with their cute sayings.

Heather- I found the family letters at a boutique just before Christmas. Sugarplum I think. I go every year and always find something cute. You should come with me next time.

It has been a week since you have updated. I went almost a week as well, but it was because I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with life. So I am just making sure you are okay, and that it isn't more than just not having something to write about.
