Thrifty Christmas Finds

Hi there! Are you all ready for Christmas? I keep adding every day. Something here, something there..... Tinkering around the house finding things to move. I found this beautiful door wreath at Goodwill for $ 3.99 the other day. It looks like it was never hung. So I put my bells on the back door. And this one on the front. That way everybody gets a Christmas greeting.

This pretty JOY set was .99 cents each. The original price tag was still on them and it read $19.99. So I got a good discount. There was a chip though. Right on one of the angels nose.

I just painted them with some Annie Sloan Old White and you can never tell the difference.

I like to buy scripture pieces and put them around the house. It is a way of writing God's Word on the door posts as the scripture tells us to do.

I found this heavy and beautiful pitcher for $3.99. I think it will be lovely with flowers in it or pink lemonade.

Lastly I found this beautiful angel at a thrift store that benefits troubled people. She was the perfect color and the price was right. So now...

She is in her rightful spot.... Happy Monday! Until next time.
