Today's Thrifty Finds...

Oh my goodness, I hit the motherload of goodies when I did my thrift store shopping today! Just take a look at all these goodies!! Every single item was 50% off, except for that coffee/tea cup/saucer (it was FREE). I have specific plans for most of these goodies and I can't wait to share them when they are put to use.

This is a close up of the hankie. Love that stitch work for 65 cents!
The placemats will be used for holiday decorating. Maybe 4th of July. Two for $1.50!

I about jumped for joy when I saw this cake stand.

It was $4 on sale!
The bottom part needs to be cleaned up, but isn't it pretty?

And you guys, I'm going to have something else verrrrrrrrrrry special to share soon. Possibly TWO things, if I get Steve's okay on the second thing. I know I'm being mysterious but you'll understand when I can share. Even if the second thing doesn't work out, the first thing is so exciting, I'll still be happy!

This turned out to be a very good day!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am just about done with Jessica's dress, just need to do some hand stitching and add a little accessory or two and then I'll get the girls to show off their new dresses. And I went back to Joann's and found another pattern (and some fabric I just adore) for another dress for each of the girls. Wheeeee!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in excitement over my fun finds.

Oh you lucky duck, you! What great stuff ... for pennies on the dollar, too, I'll bet. I can't wait to see what you do with the different pieces. Amazing!

I'm anxious to see the girls in the dresses, too. I believe we're going to have to start calling you Martha. LOL. Good for you!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend... And even though I know your secret, I'm still excited!!

Fun things that you found Jeanne. I can't wait to see how you put them to work.

I also am VERY intrigued right now as to what things you will be sharing soon. I have to tell you, my mind is wandering and I'm already concocting stories in it. :)
