Today's Thrifty Treasures

Good Monday Morning everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I sure did. I was able to spend time with my Mom and my children, also my brother was here. It was a great day.

Today, however, is Today's Thrifty Treasures hosted by Rhoda at Southern Hospitality. Be sure and check out the other thrifty treasures at her place. Here are a few things I found this weekend. Me and hubby made a day of it together.

First, I found this pitcher/vase, could be used for either.

My husband and youngest daughter added roses for Mother's Day. This was on the table when I got up. My daughter arranged it. She was so proud.
Here's a close up of the vase. I love the shape. We paid $3.00 for it. It's about 16" tall. Nice size.

Next, I found this candle stick. It's like 24" tall, looks a little shabby chic, but I fell in love with it. Only $1.00.

Lots of detail work in it also.

We also found this small lamp, that can be used as a nightlite in a bathroom or kitchen. I will probably spray paint it and of course add a shade. Only .50

We had a great, fun day. I love it when I can go with my sweetie.

Also, here's a pic of my daughter and her husband with my grandson, Nathan, for baby dedication day at the church. Is there a better way to start out your first Mother's Day then to dedicate your baby to God? I can't think of any.

Well, thats it for today. Be sure and check out Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for some more fun.
