Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! After the gorgeous weather during my recent trip to Canton, I came home to a week of rainy days which delayed my photos a bit. I actually snapped these in between showers--wet pavement and all! You've been patiently waiting and today I'm excited to share the fabulous finds from First Monday ...
Since my infatuation with vintage chicken feeders continues to grow, I was thrilled to find a different variety than the others I have. I knew right away it would make the perfect planter--especially for $5!
Last summer, when I styled a mantel featuring vintage toys (which also happened to include a chicken feeder) I passed on a pair of skates like these because they were $20. These were marked $8 but the vendor took the $5 I offered. Happy dance!
I bought the finger pointer and keys from the same vendor. The keys will be upcycled for Secret Garden Herbs. Here's how I used the pointer and the wooden arrow sign I picked up on our way out--both point toward the garden gate:
A few months ago, I almost bought a similar set of bed springs in Fredericksburg. I decided to wait and now I''m glad I did--I found this for 1/3 the price! I've always wanted to use one as a garden trellis.
My friend Carly's son Maddux, helped me plant a patch of wildflowers
and then later I added Carolina jessamine plus morning glory seeds which will both climb my repurposed trellis nicely!
Last, but not least are the lovely linens I found after digging through several gigantic carts! I love the embroidery which shows the chick doing various chores on different days of the week. Sunday's my favorite ~ she's got her church bonnet on and she's strutting her stuff ;)
Until next time, happy hunting!
