Thrifty Thursday #24

This past weekend we went on a mini va-ca to see family and friends a few hours away. It was awesome to see people we haven’t seen in a while! Although, between the craft show and going out of town I wasn’t thrift store hopping. I feel like I have been saying that a LOT lately! I wonder if I can hire someone to shop the thrift stores for me? Like download my style and what I am looking for into their brain and send them out to do all the dirty work??? To be honest though, that is kinda the fun part. You know that rush you get when you spot something fabulous?
Moving on.
I of course was able to find a few thrifty lovelies!!! One thing I am always looking for is fabulous chandeliers. I rarely find them so when I spotted this brass one I was thrilled. Maybe I can make another one of these? Maybe in a fun color?
I found this wire basket for $.99 at Goodwill. Gotta love the price right? While I am currently drawn to the bright orange color of the basket, as I am dreaming of Halloween and Fall projects, I am thinking of was to make it looks like an old industrial wire basket.
I was shocked to find yet another fabulous bird house! It’s pretty filthy and gunky, but not a lot scares me when it comes to a good find. I now have three old birdhouses, does that constitute a collection? I hope so. An old bird house collection thrills me!
You know, I really wish I could go on a major thrifting shopping trip. It seems like I just fit in little visits here and there. I would love to hit some great spot, shop til I drop, and bring home the most fabulous finds! But if you got one look at my garage you would know that I don’t need to put a popsicle stick in there.
Linking up to these great link parties!!!

The DIY Show Off


  1. I’d say that 3 of anything does indeed make it a collection. 😉 Good find on the bird cage – I saw one of these (forget where) turned upside down and used as a light fixture! Looked really cool. 🙂

  2. Great finds, I love the birdcage. I would love for you to come over and share at my Restyled Sundays party.

  3. That birdhouse has such great lines! What a great find! I’m looking for one so send some of your bird house finding luck my way. 🙂

    PS I have a $50 cash giveaway going on at my blog right now. Come by when you have a chance! 🙂

  4. That birdhouse is super cute! I just moved, and have yet to find an awesome thrift store. The wire basket is super cool! And for only 99 cents, how could anyone possibly pass it up?


  5. I love birdhouses, those are great finds! I found a bird house lantern at a garage sale too, you can check it out here
    Love that chandelier, so many things you could do with it!

  6. what a great find!!! i’m trying to get my hands on a birdcage!! there are endless decorating possibilities with them!!
