A Couple 'a Good Finds!

A few weeks ago I decided to stroll through the Salvation Army store just to see what I could find. Usually they have old furniture that I can't use and clothes! I decided that it might be worth a shot, though, since I have been trying to change things up a bit in my house without spending a lot of money!

I walked around for a little while when I came upon this:



It was lying in a mingled mess of a bunch of other random plates and dishes and there was only one.

I painted my kitchen blue a couple of years ago and I thought this plate matched it perfectly! I love the flowers in the middle that pick up some of the other colors in my den (which is right off of my kitchen) so I decided to buy it. I picked it up... 99 cents people!! I added the $1 plate holder and ribbon and I think it looks really good! You can't really tell it in this picture but it is a little larger than a typical plate... like a small platter! Not bad for 99 cents!

Another thing that I have always liked in my friend Lisa's house is how she used a sconce to put lotions and candles beside her pedestal sink in her bathroom. Since there is limited space on the sink you need something, but a powder room is usually pretty small and the wall space is sometimes limited.  I ran across this neat little shelf that goes great in my downstairs bath:


I found it at Old Time Pottery for $7! Woo hoo!! It allows me to have a couple of extras that I might not otherwise have since there is no counter in this bathroom. I love it!

Now that summer is approaching I am making a LONG list of things to do. I am excited to have some more "at home" time and eager to get some things done!

Do you have a long list of things to do? What are some of them? You just might help me add to mine!

How sweet is that little plate?! Very cute and you know I love the ribbon too. And, I really like the sconce idea in the powder room. It looks great! I can't wait to see what else you work on this summer =)
