wooden candlesticks

Thrifty Treasures

I love spring and nicer weather because it means time for yard sales“! This past weekend, my daughter and I stopped by a few in addition to an estate auction. I didn’t get much but here are some of my treasures…

an old vintage clock face…

I haven’t set the clocks yet…oops!

There are never any AA batteries when you need them and I felt it best not to ‘borrow’ from the remote control. 😉  The clock face on the wall is the one I purchased.

Ever since Aimee from It’s Overflowing shared this image from Martha Stewart Weddings in the DIY Project Parade, (thanks so much, Aimee – I can’t stop thinking about copying this for a centerpiece in my favorite colors…)

{no, no wedding plans…I’m already married to a wonderful man! I just love the look.} I’ve been collecting wooden candlesticks (+ a wooden tray)…

Wisteria used to sell these vintage elephant bells…

and I found my own cute little vintage brass elephant bell with a beautiful patina. I love the sound!

and because I might want to ‘work out’ (ha! haha!) these fun vintage dumbbells…

I’ve also recently scored another outdated chandelier that will get a coat of spray paint and a little chicken wire accessorizing. And clothes. One of these days the girls and I will do a fashion show. Most of our favorite things are from thrift stores.
