thrifty finds

I have been taking advantage of my time off this summer to shop at garage sales, thrift stores and estate sales. It has been a lot of fun to "treasure hunt".

Some of my finds are the box of Pottery Barn "faux snow" which I will use in Christmas decorating and displays and the heirloom white spray paint that I read about DIY-ers using all over blogland. I have already used some to paint a picture frame bought at another estate sale.

I am also excited about these dominos that I was able to pick up at a yard sale.

It's fun to see what bargains others have found.

I wish I would find paint at a garage sale! I love using the Heirloom White paint too, and thank goodness it's not too expensive, because I feel like I go through a can a week!

I haven't seen the faux snow yet, but I didn't get into blogging until just before Christmas last year. Will have to start reading those old posts. ;) Thanks for stopping by!

Love the dominoes. Those would look great all poured into a large glass vase.

Those dominoes are fabulous!

And that snow looks like fun too. Who says you can't spread it around and have a little Christmas in July? It might make you feel a little cooler too.
