Something Old: Thrifty Discoveries

I am always browsing other blogs admiring the cool finds bloggers find thrifting. I can't believe I've been at this for well over six months, and I haven't really shown you what I've found....

So check out some of my favorites of the year...all something old, something used...

To start, some old sewing hoops that just slide together. I can't wait to use them to showcase some artwork in the bedroom. I found about six ranging in price from 5-cents to 25-cents.

Ballerina candle holders. I can't wait to bake a batch of Magnolia Bakery cupcakes this fall to show them off! There are well over 20 holders, all for 25-cents! And they will look so graceful dancing on light pink icing in a sprinkle of white nonpareils.

And I just love the Avon cannisters. They are super cute. My Aunt Agnes used to sell Avon, and I have one of her vintage spoon rings that I adore. These are perfect for both bathrooms in our charming bungalow--I hide my hair barrettes, bobby pins, and ponytail holders in them. They are so cute! And I found them on half-price day...for a total of 25-cents a piece!

This one is a favorite. I usually don't like to spend more than 50-cents to a dollar on a vintage pattern, but I seriously want this black dress. So I bought it. I can't wait to craft it up on some printer fabric for make-up bags to gift!

And speaking of gifts, these 25-cent cupcake Christmas toppers are too cute. I can't wait to see what I discover they can be...ornaments? Gift wrap? Who knows?

So...what have you found this summer for less than a dollar? I can't wait to find even more as we travel south later this summer!
