Show and Tell Monday

January 24, 2011

This week, I'd like to Show and Tell some of my favorite thrifty finds from December 2010. The holidays were so busy that I didn't have the time to mention them before, but I was super excited about everything that made it home with us. I found second-hand linens in our wedding colors, a couple wooden boxes, a 'coffee' and 'candy' tin to match our old 'sugar' tin, and lots of vintage lace and doilies.





I also found a footstool with potential. I'll need to give it a makeover at some point because it's a little too ugly for me, but it remains as-is until the weather warms up.


That's it for now! If you'd like to join in on the fun, visit Katy Keuter over at KT40 to let her know. Have a happy Monday!

  3. Love those wooden boxes! I need to find a few like that to contain my fabric stash more neatly--it's spilling out of my cabinets these days.
