and the $3 tin organizer she restored:
And take a look at how she made her 25 cent mugs into a fall centerpiece:
She did such a great job making her thrifting finds into beautiful pieces, didn’t she? You can check out more of her fun thrifting finds here!
And I love this reader find- you guys remember my ginormous $5 ladle?
Well, Emily D. writes in with a find that made me smile!
I'm from Kansas City, MO, and around here, we have GW, Salvation Army, and another fairly large chain called Red Racks (supports Disabled American Veteran's)...anyway, Red Racks is in my regular rotation and today I happened to stop in to see what I could find and I happened upon an enormous golden ladle that is very similar, if not identical, to yours!
I thought it was funny...apparently, at least two people recently decided that they didn't have a need for ginormous ladles and donated them. Also, you apparently DID get a deal on yours because the one I found had originally been priced at $8.98 (although it has been marked down a couple of times now.). Anyway, just thought it was funny that there was more than one huge ladle out there, just waiting for a new home. I passed on this one - nowhere to put it!
How cool is that? I wonder if giant ladles were really popular at one time?? Thanks for sending us a pic, Emily! I love it!
And if you love thrifted clothing finds like I do, I think you will enjoy reading my real life bestie’s blog, Secondhand or Bare Bottom, where she posts her totally thrifted or free outfits every week!
Her entire outfit in this pic added to only $15!
