Easter Thrifting

 I've been struggling to find 'creative' time lately but a trip to my local thrift store on 60% off week netted me some 'inspiration'.  All of these pieces cost me a grand total of $9.53 and most of them will be unrecognizable when I finish with them (that IS a good thing).
 I'm not a big "napkin ring" person but for Easter, I plan to use these after updating them a bit to suit my taste.
 I like the lines of this little guy so he's going to get a makeover and will take a place somewhere in my living room after his "day at the spa".
 These are candle holders that you hang on the wall. Not sure if they'll be used for that or dismantled for their flowers so stay tuned for that one.
 Of course one can NEVER pass up a glass cloche OR a vintage metal ANYTHING.
 Personally it is impossible for me to ever pass by a vintage salt shaker, especially when it only costs me 50 cents!  Off to my workspace (a.k.a. the basement) to get crafty.


  1. I have some napkin holders that are just so cute but I've never known how to use them in my decor...without a napkin! I wonder what you'll come up with! I can't pass up a salt shaker either! lol You found some fun treasures! Have fun!

  2. Pâques peut arriver, vous êtes parée avec ces petites merveilles... Une belle touche printanière dans ce joli billet.
    Gros bisous à vous.

  3. Can't wait to see your friends after their "makeovers" ;)

  4. I have those napkins rings and can't wait to see your re-creations.

  5. wow you found some cool treasures, they look like a sweet variety, love the napkin rings, so so cute, for Easter and a cute garden luncheon....
