Thrifty finds





I had some fun "thrifting" last week with my sister. I found this rustic old lantern for only $5.00. I believe at one time it had glass panels, but, hey, no need for the glass, this will be great for the garden. I have a candle in it right now but it could also be used to hold a flower pot.




This cute little windchime was only $3.00. It has a pretty tinkling sound. You know how much I love windchimes.





I also have a love for colored glass art balls. This one is a beautiful amber color, only $5.00, I have it floating in my birdbath.






And last but not least I found a bunch of these miniature teapots (for $2.50) which I've already attached to metal garden stakes for some garden art! I'll be selling these in my shop. Just a few more ribbons and they'll be ready to go.

Donna, I know I've said it before but your finds amaze me. I just don't have the patience and don't seem to have the vision to know how to use some of these lovely things. Great treasure hunting you and your sister have had. Enjoy them.
