Favorite Thrifty Tips and Repurposed Projects of the Year


Hi there, Friends!  As we head into a new year, I always enjoy taking a look back. I find it insightful, because there are two types of readers' favorites--those that I was aware of and those that came as somewhat of a surprise! 


My Thrift Store Addiction Favorites of the year

Friday's Find #178


TGITF Friends! Do you typically go thrifting during the week between Christmas and New Year's? I made a few stops and scored some great Christmas clearance. I found this sweet vintage hankie for .50! I've sold several Christmas hankies in the past, but this one is a keeper. I am smitten with the tiny delicate details.

Friday's Find #177


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! This last week before Christmas has been a busy one, but I still managed to score several treasures. First, I've seen quite a few Putz houses on other blogs, but I I've never come across any at thrift stores. These were a bargain and even though they have a few bare spots that need a little love, I was happy to find them!

Don't Forget to Feed the Reindeer! Upcycled Gift Bottle


Happy Wednesday, Friends!  Have you ever accidentally started a Christmas tradition? Sometimes those that aren't thought out or planned, but just stick on their own can be the sweetest. Here's the story of how I became the annual reindeer food maker....

Repurposed Trophy Bar Cart Bling!


Hi there, Friends! Today I am sharing a fun repurposed project. While these retro bottle stoppers would be a great addition to a Christmas or New Year's Eve party, they can also add a little bling to a bar cart year round!

Friday's Find #175


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Ready for this week's fabulous features? Today's finds were all from the same stop and I'm guessing someone collected angels before passing them on to thrift store heaven! First, a sweet little Hallmark angel with precious details that would be a lovely ornament, stocking stuffer or tree topper for a small tree. Available

Friday's Find #174


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Ready for this week's fab finds? Needlepoint pillows have been good sellers for me, so when I see one in great condition like this one, I usually grab it. I was instantly drawn to the pretty dove and message, so this one is a keeper!
