Thrifty Things Friday #29

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a pretty apothecary jar I picked at a yard sale. I have been wanting one of these large squatty jars for awhile. I have seen them at the Home Goods Store for around $16.00-$25.00. So, when I saw this one for $3.00 I snatched it up!

Everything else I used on this table is from past years of thrifted treasures.

Nothing very fancy schmancy. Just Fall-ish.

Let’s check out a couple fun posts from last week.

Heather at Tatter and Fray shared with us several recently thrifted cocktail sets. I love them all!

  12. A beautiful jar you found. I am amazed at how many ways you can make a simple apothecary jar look so beautiful my just putting simple things in them. I have a few with seashells, but I want to get three more so I can use them for the different holidays. Just lovely.

  13. So pretty! I can't believe how many of those apothecary jars I passed up at yard sales in the past! Now that I want one there's none to be found! Ha!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    Hope In Every Season

  14. Diann! there has been a blunder. I meant to comment on your apothecary and my stupid pc took me to another post. And I accidentally wrote you as Linda, as I was on coastal charm too...both of you are on my side bar! Im so sorry! Believe me my PC automatically scrolls and behaves weird. Even when i draft, it continuously posts off. I need to sort this. But till then, my apologies.

  15. Thanks so much for hosting! Come check out our thrifty Halloween and snag our free Halloween Print.

  16. I was fortunate to have an Old Ladies thrift shopping night with friends earlier this week. A cart rolled out from the back with the most magnificent apothecary jar on it. I can not tell you the price because some young chick SNATCHeD it off the cart before the cart came to a stop.

    I have missed visiting and sharing. When I come back I do have a great story to tell.

  17. Way to a bargain! This is a fabulous Fall decor piece! Happy weekend~
