“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Thrift store finds

I love going to yard sales, but I dont like to go alone for some reason,so for the past couple of months, I've not been to any, Thank goodness for thrift stores!
Here are a few treasures I dug up last week.The little bowl I posted about on Saturday is right there.
I have a terrible obsession with cigar boxes, lol, so when I saw these two,I felt like I was moving in slow motion to get them!
This bunch of goodies was less than seven dollars.
I think my favorite piece is the bust,and the the fabric is really nice too, no fraying or rips.
So, I'm off to run errands and pick up one of my girls from school.
Thank you for looking....
Have a happy day!


  1. Oh, awesome finds!!! I'm so extra excited for you!!!
    It all looks so pretty--and you haven't even decorated them yet!

  2. Ooh! What fabulous treasures!! Love yard sales, flea markets, and thrift stores...FUN! :)

  3. I'd say you got your money's worth!!!

    nice treasures :D


  4. Where I live, they have learned the "value" of cigar boxes and the one cigar place now sells them starting at $12.50 for the wooden ones and $5.00 for the cardboard/paper ones. I would say those alone were real steals!

  5. I like all the things you found and shared with us. I have a couple old cigar boxes that were handed down. I kept them for some reason.

  6. I just popped over to say "hi" and hope you're doing great!!!

  7. Wow, I'd say you got quite a bit for your dollar. I too like cigar boxes but I just on't know what I would do wit them all!
