More of My Snow Day Finds

Hi everyone! I showed you some of my thrift finds that I got when I went out in the blizzard. Here are some more found treasures from that trip.

I found a few more Valentine things. I am pretty surprised to have found so many thrifted Valentine items. Usually I never find anything for what ever holiday it is until after the holiday.

Just a nice red heart shaped basket. It was .60 cents.

Feb 2011 bargains 021I really liked this next heart shape  basket. It has this rose candle ring in and I took that out right away. Love the details.

Feb 2011 bargains 018 Feb 2011 bargains 019 I think this will end up getting a new paint job but, not this year.

Feb 2011 bargains 020 A couple of packages of rose pedals for .25 cents a bag.

Feb 2011 bargains 024 Thinking ahead, I thought it might be fun to do something for Mardi Gras this year. It is March 8th. So, when I saw this box of Mardi Gras masks for $1.00 (they were marked $3.99 but it was 5/$5.00 day) I picked them up. I should have taken the tape off the box for the picture. Sorry about that!

Feb 2011 bargains 017 And don’t you love when you find a brand new item still in the box especially when it normally not something you would buy at it’s original price even if you really like it? When I saw this package of 10 paper lanterns from Pottery Barn, I was thrilled to pay $1.00 for them. I will take these up to the campground for our trailer.

Feb 2011 bargains 031Feb 2011 bargains 030 Feb 2011 bargains 029 Okay, I know it is so NOT Christmas but, I just thought this set of 3 ceramic Christmas tree candle holders were so cute and the set was $1.00.

Feb 2011 bargains 032 I love Wilton products! I took the Wilton Cake classes and had a blast! I learned so many things. So, whenever I see Wilton products thrifting, I generally always pick them up! I got the heart shape pan for .60 cents and the new, in package, heart cookie mold for .85 cents.

Feb 2011 bargains 039 And as many of you who have been long time followers here know, I look at thrifted sheets as large pieces of fabric. When I find one in great shape, pretty and cheap, I buy it.  I spotted this pretty pink and white floral queen size flat sheet for $1.00 and thought it would be perfect as a tablecloth in our shop to display some Valentine items.

Feb 2011 bargains 038 So, those were a few more of my snow day thrifty finds.
