My weekend Thrifty finds.

  Believe it or not, this weekend I actually got my Husband to agree to go thrifting with me!  You truly don't know how awesome that really is..........  He doesn't do stuff like that, it bores him to death.  Can you even believe that???  Who wouldn't want to go Thrift store shopping??!!

  Anyway......I tell you that man is my lucky charm.  I found all kinds of things on my wish list, for fractions of what I would normally pay for them.

You have to see it to believe it!

Seriously!  Tell me that doesn't look like I just went shopping at Homegoods?!  I got all this stuff at the one Thrift store.

I have been wanting to go toward a French/Tuscan feel in the kitchen.  Notice you never see pictures of that room?  There is a reason for this, I assure you!  I found a few Rooster plates that I love at the Salvation Army that were from TJ max.  NWT!!  Now I found this AWESOME red rooster!!!  I just saw him at Hobby Lobby too!

Isn't he a happy little fellow!?  I can't begin to tell you how much I dig him!
Here he is with the original price tag still on him, and I paid $14.41 this is all from the Community Thrift Store in Dundee!  I feel like he was meant for me....just sitting on that shelf waiting for me to take him home.  This is the most I have ever paid for something at a Thrift Shop, but I don't feel bad in the slightest! 

I paid $4.14 for the cook book stand!  I have been looking at these for years, and couldn't justify paying full price for something I felt I wouldn't use for anything other than display!  Now that I have actually placed a book in it, I am  re-thinking that.  It is quite handy.
Couldn't pass up a bag of fruit for only $3.13
I have been reading about layering in home decor, and noticing how much greenery helps to fill in and make things feel warm.  These topiaries are just what I needed!  I also got the other plant and it is sitting on the game table!  Looks great there, I will post pictures soon of the living room.
It was from FTD floral!  I love the colors and can't wait to put my own floral arrangement in it!
Isn't this basket awesome?  It was NWT from Marshall's.  I paid $1.65  originally $16.99 I am thinking it will go in the Laundry room to help corral all of the cleaning products.  If not, I am sure I can figure out something to do with it.  Maybe it needs a basket liner?  What do you think?  What would you use it for?
I am a sucker for Mercury Glass........I just like things that sparkle.  I will put this away for Christmas.
With Jelly Beans, I think he will be the cutest thing ever!
Remember my Hobby Lobby birds?  Well I found them a nest at the Good Will! 
And this reminded me of my Birds!  I HAD to have it for the Spring table vignette!
From Target Clearance!
Aren't they perfect together?!  I can't wait to replace My St. Patty's Day display with these little guys!
Awww....so sweet I can hardly stand it.

 So, now you can see why I think my Hubby is a lucky charm!  I NEVER get this lucky at the thrift store!  I think from now on, he has to come EVERY time I go.  Plus, I don't have to load up the car afterward!  That is a BIG bonus! :D
