Hi everyone and welcome to Thrifty Things Friday!
My post today is a little different. I want to talk about thrifting for others. I am a member of the local Garden Club and one of the things we do is make small floral arrangements for a Hospice House.
A local flower shop donates a box of flowers and we work with what is given to us.
We use vases that we find at flea markets, thrift stores or yard sales. And we also provide the ribbon for a small bow. So, when you see me thrift a “plain cheap vase” this is where it will go. Same goes for a lot of thrifted ribbon.
When we finish making the little arrangements, a couple of the workers at Hospice take them around to the patient’s homes. We make as many as we can from the flowers that we have. It is not much but, I know that someone will appreciate it.
Thrifting can brighten someone else’s day and that always makes me happy! So, if you have a bunch of vases like these and want to get rid of them, check your local Hospice.
Now, let’s check out some fun posts from last week’s party!
Yvette at Napualani’s Closet made this adorable Lego/chalk table for her son.
Cindy at Beaux R’eves shared her beautiful change over to winter white buffet with a few thrifty redos.
And Judy at JBiggs Little Pieces showed us some pretty sparkle with Mercury glass.
