My First Today's Thrifty Treasures!

Happy Father's Day! I hope everyone had a great day!

I'm very excited to finally join in Today's Thrifty Treasures hosted by Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality. It's one of the main reasons I started a blog. You all are having way too much fun without me!

Since I'm new on the scene, I'll cheat a little and show you my finds from the past month.

Everything shown below I paid 50 cents to $1.00 each with the exception of the glass covered cake dish for $3.00.

And now for my favorite! A amish built dry sink for $30.00! I want to paint it but I'm not sure what color to go with. I would love some opinions! (please, please excuse awful wall behind it, we're in the process of re-doing our back porch. This is def. the before shot!

There's more but I'll save a few for next week ;).
Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment, I want to meet everyone!

  6. OOOHH! I want that dry sink!! $30 is an awesome price!! I have been looking for one for ever it seems. Most are wither too long or WAY too expensive. You have given me hope!! ;0)

  7. Hi! I'm blog hopping, and I just couldn't leave without saying that your "About Me" gave me a really good laugh! Thanks.
    And your finds are fabulous! Loved every single piece! Bravo!

  8. Hi Bonnie! love the profile copy.... You have a great find in that dry sink. What are your plans for the room- color and style wise? I'm into black right now, but then, my decor warrants that... Let me know, maybe I can help. Sue :-)

  9. I love your "typos"-too funny! You found some great things-wow on that dry sink!

  10. Hi, Bonnie, first of all, welcome to blogging! Second, I love your profile text, I was LOL on that one. Great sense of humor, lady!

    Love your finds too & that Amish sink is really pretty. If you want to paint it, I can see it in a creamy white. Pretty piece.

  11. Love the dry sink - would be pretty in white.

  12. Welcome to a very addicting world!

    The dry sink was a steal - depending on what it will be udsed for, it would be a great inspiration piece with a pop of color! It all depends on its surroundings...

  13. Hi Bonnie,
    You got some great stash! I love plates and these are pretty ones. Your dry sink was a steal and it will be a fun makeover. I am getting ready to work on a table I bought. I think your dry sink would look great black, but it depends on what the rest of your home looks like. Welcome to the blogging world, it is fun. Cathy

  14. Welcome to Blogland. I haven't been here too long myself. Be prepared to look at everything in a new in, "That would make a great post for my blog!"

    Awesome thrifting finds! Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with the dry sink.

  16. I am drooling all over my keyboard at your great and cheap finds !!!!!! I also love your sense of humor on your about me...LOL !
