Friday Frugal Finds

My church held a fundraiser today so I declared it open season on 'Garage Sales'!!

I got the tray for $1 and the Cloche bells for .50 each
Just playing around with some Easter eggs for the photo.

Horribly bright photo, sorry
This is a cute mirror with a small drawer I plan on hanging in my daughter's room

There was no sticker on it, so they priced it $2 -- Yay me!

My friend came along, and
she showed me a favorite second-hand shop of hers too
where I picked up this reproduction mercury glass vase

$4.75 marked down from $6.99

Keys are all the rage now. Got this also at my church sale

for $5!

I hung it on an existing screw for the photo but it isn't staying here.

You can see the scale of the key in this photo
I think I want it on the wall that meets up with this one
so you can see it right when you come in the entry

We've had a few gorgeous Spring days here.
I couldn't help shooting a pic of this. I call it:

Cross in the Sky
(original, huh?)

Friendly Bling

My friend just returned from Germany and brought me back a lovely crystal cross from a factory she toured. I wasn't sure where I should display it 'safely'. After all, it had traveled all the way from Germany in one piece and I wanted it to stay that way [wink].

So I attached it to a lamp in my master bedroom with a length of white tulle. I think it looks real pretty there!

Change.......Change.... Change!

We did this over a year ago but I was going thru old pictures and wanted to post them. Just to show that you don't always have to spend money or a lot of time to make big changes. I've always hated the row of cabinets that hung over our peninsula counter. Even for a short person (not naming names here), I couldn't stand on one side and hold a conversation with someone on the other side without ducking.

It literally took my husband 10 minutes to do this (He removed 6 screws).

It was the BIGGEST change in our home that took the LITTLEST amount of time.
