$5 and some change...

I just love it when you can find some treasures for about five dollars. I went to the local thrift shop and while ago and found these things. The wire piece holds pots or something of the like. I was thinking of painting up some pots and hanging this in the schoolroom/craftroom to hold pencils, crayons, etc. Also, I got a book, Home Grown Kids, it looks interesting. Some plate holders that I really needed, a measuring spoon for my laundry detergent, some child scissors with four holes. Anyone know what those are for?? I also found a pretty glass bowl. I have another that matches this one that I got from some thrift shop or another.



I love the delicate detail on the bowl.


Check out the scissors...Interesting, huh??




Love this pot holder, wall thingie.





This set is from another $5 and something trip to Goodwill just the other day. I saw the plaque and knew I would reuse it for some other project. I love the vintage ones with the little loop holder part. The workbook is brand new and was only 75 cents. And that bowl...be still my heart. Love it!!


Check it out...I love the floral detail and the crazing adds to the charm. It will look great in my hutch!!


Tell me, what have you found for $5 and some change??

I have no idea on earth what those scissors are for! They look very interesting though. . .

I wish we had a good junk store around here.

Great deals Elise! I need to get up near Atlanta and go do some fun thrifting...not much of good things in this small town.

What great stuff!

We never go yard selling or thrifting. The yard sales around here and not anything like the ones I remember when I was little going with my mom.

Hi Elise,

My son used those scissors when they were trying to teach him the proper way to hold/grip scissors. They come in handy for small hands. That book about home grown children looks interesting..you will have to let me know if it is any good.
