Thrifty Show and Tell

Here it is Show and Tell Friday and I am not showing any dishes! What is up with that?

What I am showing today are a few odds and ends recent finds bought either at SA or yard sales.

First up are these two brand new lampshades. They are the ones with the self adhesive on them so you can cover them with whatever you want. In the last picture, you will see they were normally $9.99 at JoAnns. I paid $1.00 each for them.

Next, this little botanical print. I just liked it and I liked the $1.00 price tag.

I got 4 of these brand new pineapple/artichoke(?)glittery picks for .25 cents each.

There is a missing spoon in this picture (probably laying in my truck somewhere) of 2 settings of light creamy yellow Fiesta flatware. I think the design is fun.

I got this little wire pear for .25 cents. I plan to paint it a bronzy color.

And just another silver/silver plated teaspoon to add to my growing collection.


  1. I am having dish withdrawal! LOL...oh wait I can just look in my closet and get a fix! There I'm ok now. Great finds and I love those Fiesta silverware, love those handles. Cute little pear I can see it bronze color! I got a couple of little things today I will share later.
