Exciting finds!

I started to name this post "hooked on thrifting" but decided against it as I didn't want to tip off Mr. B. ha! (No, really dear, I'm not, I promise - hiding my crossed fingers behind my back) :o) It is so much fun to see what you can find.

Anyway, I dropped in our local GW this week and look what I found- all for under $20!


A large grapevine wreath ($4 - can't buy one this size for that!), a couple of small rustic Christmas signs (forgot to take pictures of them -they'll show up in a later post), this cute little basket....



Boxes that look like old suitcases:


Not sure I'm going to leave them original. I like the shoe design but I was thinking of painting them with my own design. They're cute though...


And then this little toolbox. I've seen so many posts on these things and this one is just screaming for a makeover.


It's little and was someone's first project. See, it says so on the bottom.


I don't know who Noble is and if he ever made anything else but thanks! I'll enjoy making this into something for the B Farm or to use in the art studio. Hopefully, I can work on it this week as I'm trying to get ready for ChalkWalk in Round Rock the first weekend in October. I'll be selling my Christmas cards, prints of my artwork, and some of my originals. You can see them here and here

I will be taking a break next weekend to go to Canton's First Monday Trade Days. My daughter, sister,  and niece are going with me. Mr. B declined, imagine that! :) Can't wait to see what I can find. Let the fun begin!

Have a blessed and relaxing weekend!
