Since Christmas fell on Sunday this year, Scott and I both had Monday off to do with as we pleased. I love those days when you have nowhere to be and nothing pressing to do. One of the things we absolutely love to do together is thrift store cruising.
There are certain items we consistently search for to finish our DIY projects.
We also search for little extras to spruce up our home.
Or things we just don't want to pay retail for, especially if we can find them at a thrift store for pennies on the dollar.
I try not to do much impulse buying.
Sometimes I have this mental list of things to watch out for. My wish list. Things to create my own version of something beautiful I've seen in a catalogue. Something way out of my price range. It's not everyday that I stumble upon something on that mental list...sometimes it can be months or even years!
On this day we were done with our thrifting and just needed to check out. It had been a successful stop. We had several little items for our projects, plus a few other needed items like sheets to match our son's new bedroom colors. Our drive home would be about an hour and a half, so I decided to make a break for the restrooms before checking out and hitting the road. As I was walking down the hallway to the restrooms, I noticed a big metal cart with miscellaneous items headed out to the retail floor...
Grabbing my full attention were these beauties:
|I wish I knew how to make my own wine! |
But really, I have a whole different life planned for these beauties.
|This smaller bottle was 2.99 and the other six were 3.99 each.|
|I can't decide if I want to put our lamps next to the bed in our Master bedroom, or on end tables in the living room. I guess I can figure all of that out once I find the perfect shades!|
|Not to mention, I still have four large bottles and one smaller bottle to play with. |
I just love a creative challenge.
Although, I have to say that these bottles appeal to me just as they are.
Just look at them!!!
