Bling Bling Holder,Ivory finds and a Material Girl

010 This heavy brass thing….I think is a fingertip towel holder for the bathroom.  I thought it could be a Bling Bling holder for my teenagers room. I let my daughter pick the color on this one.

024 Ivory finds

I found these items at the thrifty store – no spray paint needed, LOL !

A great big heavy pitcher for $3.99

A wire basket – with the new tags still in place for $1.99

A spoon rest  for $1.99

006 A Material Girl

Don’t forget to scan the craft area of the thrift store…I purchased two bolts, two different times. Here is fabric I can use.  Each for $2.99- that is a super buy.

011 013

Linen Look fabric – looks like my burlap but way softer. I have many plans for this baby.

014 016

This fabric matches my daughters room – I think there is plenty to make curtains and other things. Woo Hoo !

I have a few more large projects that I am working on , or sitting in line ready to be worked on. My youngest, starts high school tomorrow so I have been busy school shopping and such.

Please visit: - Rhoda – Susan

to visit other great transformations and thrifty finds !

Hugs ~ Kammy

How cool is that bling tree. Great idea Kammy and she picked a really fab color.

Great finds. Love the material. I am never lucky enough to get a whole bolt, but I was able to get the 5 1/2 yards I needed for my sofa.

Great finds again. I'm always on the lookout for fabric at my thrift stores and have found some great buys along the way, but never bolts of fabric! What a deal. I like the bling holder, great idea for all of us with too many necklaces.

Love the transformed towel holder into the bling bling tree!! I had a wire basket like that and gave it to GW. What was I thinking? This was before I discovered spray paint. LOL

Love your makeover

Wendy @ Ramblings from the Sunshine State said...

Oh what awesome finds! The jewelry holder is so cute!

Barbara Jean said...

on one of my posts you asked if i work, or just thrift all the time.=) I'm not sure i answered your question.

i own my own little gift shop. Opened it a year ago May.
It is great fun, and gives me a reason to thrift a lot.
In summer, I go to as many garage sales as i can, as in the winter here (9 months) there are none. They are a lot more affordable than thrift stores.
I also paint, teach classes, and do a variety of hand-crafted treasures. I have 6 local craft people who put things in my store. I am every much a 'support your local artist' person.

My gift shop is only open 3 days a week, so i have time for grand kids, friends, church, and of course, thrifting. =0))
It's a good life!!
