Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   What a lovely week it was. Mr Joyful thrifter and I decided to get out of town and explore the Ventura area. It was such a fun relaxing day! We also got to meet up with Junken daddy and Mommy, and enjoy there beach front view at the beach they were camping at.

Alirighty on with the treasures...

The Pyrexia continues with these beauties! From left to right

Green Canister - $0.99
Unique Pyrex Lid - $1.99
 Popsicle Orange - $1.99
Burnt Orange with straw accent - $2.49
Lovely Yellow - $1.99
Cheerful green - $2.99

I know those are not the names of the Pyrex but its fun to create my own sometimes. I am a rebel that way. Here are some close ups...

Continuing with the thrifty fun...

Williams and Sonoma Salads cook book $3.99
Another cute "R" to add to my collection $1.50

My mom bought this wrapping book, and then realized she would never use it so she gifted it to me. I asked how much she paid and she said $0.25. Not a bad bargain.

Another unique avon bottle. I have come across some really neat ones lately, and I really liked this one. I paid $1.45.

This awesome suitcase (which needs some love, and a good Mr clean scrub) was only $1.95.

And finally my favorite find of the week...

YAY a beach cruiser bike. Yes this proves you can buy anything at a thrift store that is on your wish list, but sometimes you just have to wait patiently. Doesn't my bike look awesome on the beach? This bike needs a little love, but after I am done with it it will be so cute! Don't worry I will of course post pictures of the after. OH! you must be wondering what I paid for this beauty? I paid $49.99. My sweet husband gave me the ok to spend the money, and we have already gone on two great rides. Such great fun.

Hope you all had a great week full of thrifty finds. What treasures did you find?
