New Season: Today’s Thrifty Treasures

Picture 014

Thrifty Treasures is back!

Can I get a big YIPPEE!  I can’t wait to see all the finds out there and I’m glad y’all are excited about starting this party back again.

I got a couple of things on  Saturday, but I’m going to showcase my friend, Debbie’s recent find first.  She and her hubby have a new cute little condo in Gulf Shores and Debbie’s been working hard to get it spruced up.  So, she picked up 3 ladderback chairs at a flea market out near her in Wilsonville for $35 for the trio.  The above pic is not hers, but this is similar to what they looked like in their BEFORE state. Picture 001

Debbie (on the left) and her daughter, Tiffany, have been really busy with projects lately, so they got busy with a pretty shade of aqua on these chairs and now they are beach-worthy for sure.  Picture 003

Debbie said they look perfect at the beachhouse and hopefully, I’ll be seeing them in person really soon.  A yummy shade of blue-green is perfect for sprucing up some vintage ladderback chairs, don’t you think?

I got Debbie and Tiffany up early on Saturday and we hit a few sales in our area. Here are the 3 things I found:

A cute little old bird to add to my white dish collection in the dining room. He was only 25 cents, so that was a no-brainer.

$1 for this nice old hammer, I can always use an extra of these.

I spotted this for $2 and wasn’t sure what it was, but I knew what I could do with it.  I’ve had problems with moisture getting underneath my clay planter in the foyer that holds my corn plant.

Now, it’s up off the floor and moisture shouldn’t be a problem anymore.  That might be what it was intended for, not sure but it was the  perfect solution. Picture 022

So, now it’s YOUR turn!  What have YOU found lately.  Add your link to the Linky list and remember our guidelines for the party:

  1. 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.  Last year, I can’t tell you how many links I had to fix.  This year I might get mean & delete them, so PLEASE try to get the correct url in the first time!  🙂
  2. 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.

  2. Thanks for hosting the party this week. Your friend’s chairs are going to be fabulous in her beach house. She got a great bargain, too.

  3. Those chairs will be amazing – I wonder if you (or your friends) could share the paint color they used – I’m getting ready to embark on a refinishing project on a buffet/sideboard and thought a color similar to that would be PERFECT! Curious minds want to know!!!!

  4. YIPPEE,YIPPEE! Love Thrifty Treasures! I love those chairs and the sweet little bird!

  5. Thanks for this party! I am new to blogging and we are just now (after three years), getting around to decorating our home because it was such a disaster when we first bought it. We are having so much fun thrifting on the weekends and I am psyched to have a party to share with everyone.

  6. I’m so happy that the thrifty treasures party is back! The little bird you found is so cute. I do think the plant trivet you found is just perfect, that’s what I thought it was when I saw the first picture. In my opinion, anything that gets things up off the floor is good, it’s so much easier to clean that way.

  7. I LOVE that bird! he’s so vintagy cute!

  8. I love your new-old hammer. I have one kinda like it that was my auntie’s.

    I found you through Amanda, and I just love this party! I always want to show off my super bargains a little bit, and I love to see what everyone else is getting too. Thanks for hosting!

  9. Hi Rhoda! I’ve missed this party! So glad it’s back and it means spring is almost here! I love that sweet bird and the color they chose for the chairs! I can’t wait for yard sales to begin around here…

  10. Woo Hoo – glad it’s that time again! LOVE those chairs – that color is scrumptious. Thanks for hosting. Have a blessed week!

  11. I just stumbled into your lovely blog, and I couldn’t believe this post 🙂 I just bought these EXACT chairs for my dining room ….and have been waffling between painting them or leaving them how they are. So far, they’ve stayed in their “original” shape….they add a little bit of contrast to my already very white living room ….but i looove them in blue!
    And I love your little white bird!! I have a similar little bird that has been seen in a lot of my posts 🙂

    Glad to find you!


  12. Hi, I linked my Tea Time for I found some thrifty buys on some dishes. I love the ladder back chairs, I have two and looking for more. I’ll take that hammer! The white bird is wonderful, it will look great with your white collection. I need to find some of the plant stands! That is a great find!

  13. I love the little cream birdie….and am so happy that your Thrifty Treasures party is back. What fun!

    : )
