Thrifty Thursday #19

Thank goodness I had already done my thrifty shopping for the week….I woke up yesterday with a wicked cold! Aren’t Summer colds the pits? I have so much on my “to-do” list right now and none of it is getting done…..I guess there is never a good time for a momma to get sick, is there? I did find some good stuff though…..
I’ve been on the lookout for an old suitcase and this one was right for the price, at only a few bucks. I have a fun project planned, can’t wait!
I found a pretty cool picture frame with a lot of pretty detail. Trying to decide what I’ll do with it; mirror, chalkboard, or (what it’s intended for) a picture frame.
I was so happy to find this old mason jar. It has a little crack on the back of the jar but for $.60 it was a steal!
I found this small wood shutter, new in plastic. I think it will make an appearance with my Christmas projects. So, what have your found lately?

Linking up to these great link parties!


  1. Summer colds STINK…but that picture frame ALMOST makes up for it! Love it, and love your blog! Keep up the good work!

  2. Loving the jar, i have a thing for re-cycled jars i would pop a tea light in that but after a bit of shuzzing 😉 Stop by my blog for a few candle jar ideas 🙂

  3. Those are fun finds. I just found a vintage train travel case that my mom used for her make-up that looks similar to your suit case. I’ve been wanting one just like my moms so I can put my sewing notions in it. I also found a ton of stuff recently to finish my son’s Owl Nursery – including nesting dolls that I refinished. See here:

  4. You found some great items there. Wonderful ball jar for 60 cents? Score!
    i am curious to see what you do with that neat frame you found. My sis and I love to go on thrifting adventure each week..I found some great linens and she found some great pottery and a shelf. Which just stated a new series, ” The adventures of Picky and Picky-er

  5. So! You would call that suitcase “vintage”, right? Well, guess I”M ‘vintage then! My mom and dad bought me 2 pieces of that same luggage. How sad is that?? I’m vintage! Well, it beats the alternative! And LOVE that jar! I got one just like it when I went thrifting a while back! So great…now I’ve started yet ANOTHER collection!! (hehe). Thanks for sharing. Hope you shake that cold quickly!
