Thrifty Thursday #22

So I was finally able to do a little thrifty shopping this week. Could be the fact that we had a 4 day weekend….it’s utterly amazing how much you can get done when you have 4 days instead of 2! There’s plenty of time for the have to’s and the want to’s!!!
It’s not a lot but I found some good stuff!
I found a pretty awesome picture frame. It’s dingy and outdated, but with some paint and maybe some glaze I think it could be pretty awesome!!!
I found several of these metal candle stands. I’m thinking they would make fabulous stands to hold up some pumpkins this Fall and maybe some ribbon trees this Christmas….oh the ideas floating in my head!
Check out this mega stash of doilies I found at one thrift store! I was thrilled to find all of these because there are about a million doily crafts I want to do……..

Sigh. I love me some doilies!!!
So I know this stuff isn’t thrift store finds but this is THRIFTY Thursday. Have you been to the Dollar Tree lately? I’ve been collecting pumpkins for all kinds of projects I have coming up. There are big ones, sparkly ones, ceramic ones!!!
Also, while I was at Michael’s yesterday I noticed they had refreshed their dollar section. There is some pretty awesome stuff there!! I love these skeleton keys, I bought some the last time they were selling some but this time I bought a bunch! I also love the little ornate frames….they’ll be making an appearance soon! I seriously love Michael’s and I love holiday crafting!
Okay that was like the longest thrifty post ever…..I’ll stop…..for now!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
Have you linked up to the weekly Time to Shine party????
