Thrifty Treasures: 8-19-12

I’m just getting back from the mountains and will share some pics later this week.  It’s been a fun weekend with some girls at the Cashiers showhouse and browsing around some shops.  Last hurrah of summer!

This week will be a little slow on the house, but I’ve got a few things to work on as my parents are up at their mountain house putting up corn.  Those 2 work so hard on that garden too.  I’m going to be putting up some beadboard wallpaper in my master bedroom, but I’ll show you the latest on the kitchen cabinets.  They are really close to being finished and my installer will be back next Saturday to complete them.  I hate to say it, but another trip to Ikea is in order for me to finish things up.  I ended up buying my hardware from them too and I’ll show you all that soon.  I’m SO excited about this kitchen and will be ordering my granite this week too and of course, sharing with all of you.

Let’s get on with the party this week and show off some of your finds from last week.  I’m always amazed at the finds y’all score every single week.

56 All about vignettes

All About Vignettes found the quirky vintage peacock art for $4 at a flea market and used it on her gallery wall.

Blue Clear Sky 72

Found from a website sale for $10, Blue Clear Sky got this cute thing.

chandy 83

A satin nickel chandy from restore got a blingy makeover from Land of Encraftment.

clawfoot loveseat 45

Mommy is Coocoo is not afraid of bold fabric as evidenced by this sofa makeover that she scored for $50.

Erin 81

Vintage fans are all the rage (I have 2 of them that I’ve scored) and DIY on the Cheap found this one at an antiques store in Atlanta.

Jannolson 91

Turquoise blue Pyrex, what’s not to love?  Mrs. Olson has quite the collection of this popular again color.

My vintage life

Globes are always fun to decorate with and My Vintage Life has some beauties.

On Sutton Place 13

Vintage grains sacks from On Sutton Place look so pretty.

Town and Country 11

I love this old Bible find from Town and Country Living that she collected from a local thrift store.

Here’s more fun news for this week. My friends at Hometalk are having another Twitter chat this coming Thursday evening from 8-9 pm EST. I’ll be co-hosting with my friend Heather from At the Picket Fence.  For extra excitement, Lowes will be giving away THREE  $100 giftcards for 3 lucky winners. Hope you’ll join us!

Did you score something fun this week too?

There are a TON of parties out there to highlight all your projects, so please let’s keep this one about thrifty finds that were bought 2nd hand! Not a great sale from the store, or a recipe, or just a plain project, but 2nd Hand finds only! And please DO NOT go back in your archives to OLD posts and link up. Let’s keep this party fresh and current! If you have already shared your find in a previous party, DON’T share it again! Please, girls, I don’t want to have to delete links.

  • Add your permalink to the link list, which is the actual post that you did for this party, NOT your general blog url. To get the actual post, after you publish the post, just click on the title and THAT will be your party post url. PLEASE try to get the correct url in the first time! :)
  • Please add my button to your post or blog OR at least link back to this post in your post. That’s all I ask. It’s common courtesy to link back to the person having the party, so that all of your readers can find it too.
  • Please do NOT link to an Etsy shop or something similar (even if you think it’s a fabulous deal) or I will delete the link. This party is for sharing thrifty finds from yardsales, thriftstores, or something along those lines. If I see that your post is not really on track with this theme AND you don’t link back, I’ll delete your link. Sorry, but I’d like to keep the party consistent!

IF YOU SEE THAT YOUR LINK HAS BEEN DELETED, IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS NOT IN LINE WITH THIS PARTY THEME.

Again this year, I’ll be highlighting great finds from the party, so if you want your find highlighted, PLEASE link back to the party. Only those who link back will be considered for highlighting the next week. Thanks! SouthernHospThriftyTreasures copy_thumb

  1. Thanks for hosting Rhoda 🙂

    I can’t wait to see your kitchen when it’s finished. My brother is getting ready to remodel his kitchen, and he’s using a cabinet from Lowe’s that is very similar to yours. I’ll point him in your direction so he can be inspired!

  2. Thanks for the party Rhoda! Great features! I’m so excited for your granite order!!! Glad you had a nice weekend…XO, Aimee

  3. Hi Rhoda! Glad you had such a wonderful weekend. More great treasure found in Blogland. Thank you for hosting and I found something to share with your party! 😉
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  4. Hi Rhoda!
    What doesn’t your dad do (putting up corn!) – he’s simply amazing!

    Love the pyrex – I just linked up my own I recently scored at the thrift shop and the great way I display it.

    blessings,

    PS Can’t wait until the Twitter Chat!

  13. Hi Rhoda! Thanks so much for hosting, and thanks for featuring my Bible! The project I linked up this week is from the same thrift store, which is new in town and proving to be a wealth of good finds!

  14. Thank you so much for the party, Rhoda! I recently pulled a second hand door out of a dumpster … not much more thrifty than that. Thank you for the opportunity to share it. 🙂

  15. Hi Rhoda! I linked up my Re-store chairs and their mini makeover this week- thanks so much for hosting! 🙂

  16. Hey Rhoda! Me again. Sorry – I messed up my post and had to re-do it and long story short … link #33 goes to a “page not found” on my blog if you want to delete it. I had to resubmit it as link #54. So sorry for the inconvenience!

  17. Thanks for hosting the party again this week. I can’t believe that garage sale season is almost over. Where did the summer go?

  18. Hi Rhoda! Thank you so much for hosting! Gwyneth and I are so excited to be linking up! Hope you have a wonderful week!

    xoxo,
    Meredith & Gwyneth

    Thanks for hosting this fab party! 🙂

  20. I am dying over that reupholstered sofa! I would never pick that fabric myself (too chicken!) but the final product looks absolutely AMAZING!

  21. I’m enamored of the blue pyrex – as you say – that color is popular again! OH, and the soft wear on those grain sacks – lovely!

  22. Blue pyrex? Wow! This looks good, but it’s a little scary. I’m wondering when we’ll be seeing avacado green and harvest gold. The 55 and over club know exactly what I’m talking about even if you little ones do not!!

    Enjoyed the post. As always.

  23. Beadboard wallpaper? I just told my husband about that – seems to be everywhere I look lately! I saw it at Panera Bread, used as a table cover, and saw it mentioned in some DIY show. Can’t wait to see the result!
