My Friday Finds

Today I delivered the HOPE plaque to my friend. It was a joy to give it to her! After that I went and visited our three local thrift stores. Here is what I brought home with me:



A pair of like new black sandals (spring can't be that far away!), A bag of black and interestingly colored marbles, a vintage frame, pillow form and smaller cover, some paper ribbon, a ceramic egg, a glass candle stand, a glass pedestal jar and my favorite find of the day...a pear shaped glass jar! I also found 2 orange life jackets (likenew) and a cookie sheet that didn't make it into the picture. Ooops...I almost forgot to mention the basket everything is sitting in...My total for everything was $11.75!
I liked the pear jar the way that it was but I couldn't resist putting it on top of the glass candle holder...once you start making the apothecary jars, you see possiblliites everywhere! :o)
I liked it more on a pedestal! Then it needed something inside, so I tried the black marbles...I love it! Total for the "new" jar and filler? $3.00!


I'm sharing this frugal find over at:



Sharing a minute of "hope" and joy with a friend, great thrift store finds followed by pizza and a movie with the family....it's been a blessed and wonderful day!
