Thursdays shopping goodies

I really liked this picture and I was wanting to change the stuff on the main wall in my living room. I am hoping this might do the trick. It's over 4 ft. long and the best part is I only paid $8.00.


The star was $2.50 and it is made from wood. I love the color. I am partial to black; but lately the blues, teals and creams are really appealing to me too. The votive was $2.00. There is a small knick in the back, but it's nothing that can't be fixed. :)


I thought this was really neat. I may offer it up for sale on ebay. I got it home and realized its so big ! I don't have room for it.

What a huge saltbox house!!! It is almost 5 foot tall! I found it at a thrift store in my hometown. Can you believe it was only 20.00??!! There is a light to go in the back too.

Last but not least, this is an awesome door crow. I just love it!! He was only $8.00. I made the hang tag . It reads, "Primitive Blessings to You"

See ya tomorrow!!


  1. Kim you find the best stuff. I love everything. I have looked at those pineapple centerpieces before and I think they are really big too. But girl, you racked up..

  2. thanks tammy!! it makes me feel soooo good to find a great bargain.
    some might like diamonds and
    queen- anne furiniture. but nope, not me!! give me an old pie safe and a farm table and i am so there!! :)

  3. Great finds!!! Too bad about the pineapple flag centerpiece, it would look great in your home!! Have a great night!~Wendy

  4. As I said on the forum, you find great things! I don't really find Prims at the TS, I usually find items that I can Prim up. And it's so not fair that you have found not one but TWO saltbox houses with lights!

    Man, I want to go to the TS or something so badly. My kiddos are going with my Mom tomorrow for a night or two (She hasn't watched them like that in over 4 years! Shane was 4 and Af was a baby!)....I'll be home all alone so maybe I'll allow myself to spend a few dollars on me!

  5. Wow! Great finds....I'm really loving that big saltbox!! You lucky girl!!

  6. thanks heather and leslie.

    leslie, go find some goodies!! nothing else , just enjoy the time to browse. i am always stopping at the library , flipping through magazines or looking for prairie type story books for inspiration.

  7. You must have a radar-you've been on a roll!!

  8. Wow Kim - those are some great finds - really loving that crow door hanger! Lucky girl!
