May Thrifty Treasures

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Hope you are out there enjoying this beautiful time of year.  I know I am.  Summer is about to swing into full blown hot here in Georgia and I want to really enjoy this season.

I’m back today with another round of the Thrifty Treasures party. Thanks so many of you for coming back and joining in the party last month! I know so many of you love this party and enjoy sharing your finds.  There were about 75 of you who shared your finds last month, so I hope you’ll all show up again.

Me, I still have to limit what I bring home, because I just don’t have room for a lot more, so my treasure hunting is limited to smaller items.  I did pick up a few vintage planters on the thrifting outing I went on earlier this month and have filled them up with plants.  I love these old vintage planters, they add so much charm to a space.

I found 3 of these planters all on the same day and already had the olive green one on the right.


I bought some succulents from Lowes and added rocks to the bottom for drainage.  I’m keeping them out on the porch, so they should do fine with the drainage method since they don’t need a lot of water anyway.

After adding soil and planting, I placed them in my windowsills on the porch.  I know I’ll enjoy seeing them all summer long!

I couldn’t resist this staghorn fern either and rescued it from the Lowes mark-down plant section for $1.

Succulents are so pretty and easy to grow.

So that’s one of my thrifty projects this week.  Cute planters with easy to grow succulents!

I’m also highlighting a few finds from the party last month, so enjoy these fun finds.

I love a cute cart and DD’s Cottage found this one thrifting, took it home and painted it turquoise.  Paint works wonders every time!


Flimsy Pi found this chair on the side of the road and gave it a stylish makeover.  So cute!

Mirrors are always fun to find and I’ve found a ton of them in my thrifting adventures over the years.  Girl in the  Garage found this cute one for $3.

Now it’s time for you to share your finds from the last month.  Please link up on 2 per person and it has to be about a thrifty find you have scored and are featuring on your blog.  Remakes are fine too.  Please link back to my party too!
