IT'S THRIFTDAY!!!

Candy over at http://www.junksophisticate.blogspot.com/ had a great idea to feature our thrift finds and what we have done with them on one day of the week.   I have known Candy for almost a year now through the junkmarket style site and she is one very talented and inspiring lady. 
Today I am sharing a find from my trip to a hospital thrift store last Thursday.
I quickly snatched up this galvanized metal thingy when I saw it.  At first I thought it was something from a garden store, but it turns out it was merely a container that held some bath gifts (sticker still at the bottom).  Well, as we junkers already know, it doesn't matter much what it used to be I love it just the way it is.  For now it takes center spot on a shelf in the living room surrounded by some of my french lovelys.




I added this little address using rub on vinyls that I cut with my much loved xyron cutter.  I picked up a bag of this wonderful moss at Pottery Barn.  The necklace is a piece of my own jewelry that I thought looked charming hanging off the top.





Have I EVER mentioned just how much I love THRIFT SHOPPING!!!??!!
Happy thrifting my blogging friends!!!!  Head on over to Candy's blog to see lots more thrift treasures.
