Tole Trays and More Thrifty Goodness!

I had a lot of fun thirfting and yard saling this weekend! Here are just a few of the things I picked up.
I needed a magazine rack for my bedroom. It was that dirty cream-ish color so i spray painted it white. $3.

Two hand embroidered pretties for my bedroom. $2.50 for both.

Love, Love this vintage red vinyl sparkly chair! It will be right at home in my sewing room and much more comfy than the one I was using. I was thrilled when I asked the price and she said five dollars. Score!

These white enamal bowls were $5 for the set and the enamal cup was 49 cents at Good Will.

This rack was $1.00 and the jars were $1 each or 50 cents, depending on the size. The busicut cutters came with that top jar.

This sweet older lady was having a yard sale and I am so glad I stopped by. She sold me the two long tole trays and the small bird tole tray for $1 each. I added them to the ones I already had from the thrift and made a wall display in my kitchen.

So sweet.

Love them! I found other things too, which I listed on ebay. Like this. And this. And this beauty. We'll see how it goes!
I am linking up to Apron Thrift Girl. I found her blog a couple weeks ago and I love it! Through that blog I have found many other thrifty and vintage blogs that I just had to bookmark! I love reading about everyone's treasures! I never knew there were so many thrift fans out there, like me!
