New Thrifty Treasures

Thursday, July 28, 2011

 I'm back and I'd like to thank everyone who offered me well wishes. I'm feeling much better but not quite up to speed.  I have some new thrifty treasures that I'd like to share. I bought these before I got sick. Since I love looking at everyone's treasures I thought it only fair to share mine as well. Here are some of my great finds.

Under The Weather, Projects Stalled,and Shopping My Shed

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Well I had a lot of things planned for this week.  Unfortunately my health had other plans. I was on a roll and BAM! I was hit with a wicked flair up. I've been in bed most of the time for the last 4 days. I think I've only been able to sit up long enough to visit  my blog friends for about twenty minutes a day. I had energy to write about two or three comments. I miss you all terribly. This ole blog and reading all of you guys great blogs is an important part of my life. It keeps me going. Today I'm shaky but I am able to sit here and write for a while. I just thought I would give you a little sneak peek at some of what I'd been up to before I got sick. I bought this chair at Goodwill and am 98% finished redoing it,

I went shopping in my shed and pulled out a lot of things I used years ago. I have  plans to revamp these mirrors.

The mirror at the top has a planter attached. For some reason I forgot to photograph that part. I'm going to separate  it from the mirror and use it  for storage in a different way. The second mirror is for the living room and I plan to paint it and add some embellishments. Here is a close up of the detail.

I also pulled out this rug, which I had intended to use  in the living room. I was going to use it on the wrong side because it has a more muted look and kind of resembles sisal an that side. Now I'm going to have to rethink that plan because  the rug is a little small for the new seating arrangement. I'm thinking I may make a floor cloth  instead. I want to show you the rug anyway because its pretty and I'll probably use it somewhere in the house.

I also got a few pretty thrift store finds but I got sick before I could  get pics. I'll share them later. That's all I've got for now. I'll be visiting you my friends, please forgive me if I don't comment.  My energy is pretty low. Hopefully I'll have a project to share by the end of the week if I keep improving.  Love to you all.

 I'm joining the The Mustard Ceiling for the Mix and Mingle party.
