New month

For a long time now I have wanted to change up this blog - like make it look nice by getting it professional1y done but of course I have yet to do so. Anyway, I tried my hand at some fun change-ups on my own. I got all these great looking banners & backgrounds from the GRAPHICS FAIRY which if you haven't visited her - you must. She has some amazing photos for you to use & download for FREE.

Anyway, back to the CHANGE UP....I want to make my blog a bit more CO-HESIVE. I want to have a rhythm to my blog. So to starts, I bought a new calendar and have started to figure out a weekly plan that works for me & it will follow a DAY OF THE WEEK theme. So today being Thursday I thought I would make it THRIFTY THURSDAY. Sounds like fun right.

Here are this weeks Thrift Store Pick Ups!

 
I have been using these embroidery hoops for all kinds of fun crafty ideas. Love all the different shapes and different sizes - especially the vintage ones.
 
 

 
I love collecting vintage Christmas pieces. Whenever I find them I snatch them up.
All that plastic vintage greenery - love!

 
Vintage Santa's & angels - gotta have them. Those xmas balls aren't vintage but I have some really cool plans for them.

 
Finally, I have a love for vintage fabric calendars and I found a whole basketful of these babies this week and best part is that they were 1.00 each. These are so well worn and are from the 70's and have a faded coolness to them.
 
Ha! gosh I love THRIFTING....I would love to come by and see your thrifting treasures.
 
I hope you have a great weekend.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I didn't see your blog on the exchange list, so I'm really glad you left a comment so I could find you. I'm a thrifting nut myself - it looks like you found some cool things. I just spent all morning cleaning a silver bowl I found last week for $3. :) I'm following now!

I came over from a comment you left on my Frozen Charlottes. Gosh, I have been sorting through all my flocked Santas today dividing them into a sell pile and a keep pile. I love the header and the sidebars you created. I am a fan of The Graphics Fairy also.

I just became your newest follower!
