The $10 Thriftshop Challenge





For my birthday, I gave myself 
personal challenge...
This week while we are out of town on vacation.
Could I spend only $10???




Last year I had fun thriftshopping with my nephew.
That's when I found the French-style
pier mirror...


last year's birthday present found in a second-hand store


This year Corey was working on Tuesday
so I headed out by myself.
I went to two Goodwill stores while waiting for our dog
which was getting a teeth cleaning and grooming
at the local Banfield veterinary office.
It's always fun browsing for and finding some great china
and glassware ~ even though my partner-in-thrifting
wasn't there!





Our son and our future daughter-in-love are looking for
sea glass to decorate with and possibly lavender bottles
to use on their wedding tables this coming summer
at their wedding reception.

At the second Goodwill, I found this sweet
wire piece that Cinderella would be happy to have
on her table as a birthday centerpiece
or for her Fairytale wedding...



Hobby Lobby glass!


I had found these lovely glass vases at
Hobby Lobby over the weekend while out with
my mother-in-law picking up craft supplies
for a project she was working on.




After many texts and photos back and forth
turns out these weren't quite what
our son's fiancee was looking for colorwise
but... she liked the shapes!
(Turns out her mother was out looking for
wedding craft ideas this weekend, too!)



scored these vintage and antique lavender glass bottles at a Goodwill
and a secondhand store called Timeless Treasures


So... We've begun looking for clear, lavender and sea foam
canning jars, old medicine and liquor bottles which can then
be reused as sweet little vases.


When I find them, it will be a snap to send them
off to our son so that the happy couple can decide what
they like and would want to use.






For now, they will feature
in my little blog...
