Saturday’s thrifty finds

I scored some great finds Saturday!  I may not be able to go thrift shopping for a while so thought I would take advantage of a uncommitted morning!  I am having surgery on my shoulder, of course on my right shoulder, so will not be able to use my right arm for a bit.


I bought four white dessert plates to use underneath glass cloches, 25 cents each.  That throw on the back of the chair is a Thomas O’Brien throw from Target, it’s Mohair and acrylic, very soft and snuggly, in perfect shape and $2!  I also bought this little handled cloche (that’s what I am calling it!) for $1. 


This all mohair scarf was another great find for $2…I will use it for the mohair yarn when I make felted wool birds nests.  The navy scarf behind the mohair one is cashmere and I will probably felt it…cost $1.


Then there’s this great vintage fabric, bright blues, greens and yellow, kind of a coarse fabric that has great potential and it was only $3 and there are about 5 yards of it!   Love it!


These Styrofoam wreath forms were only 25 cents each.  I almost bought a few of them a few weeks ago, but decided against that because they were $3 each! 


A cloche on a new thrifted plate!  I bought the cloche at an auction a few weeks ago for $4 (I think!). 


This throw looks great on the chair…the chair I found at a thrift store as well for $20.  And the pink pillow was a $1 find at another thrift store! 


I am linking up to these great parties!

Fantastic finds! The fabric is gorgeous :) I envy your cloches; never find any here in the UK (at least not at bargain affordable prices!)
