Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   It has been a lovely week, but very busy. Tis the season for busyness. I just love the holidays. Our apartment smells of cinnamon and pumpkin. I spent most of my time getting presents ready this week, but still made some time to find a few treasures.

A sweet holly hobbie pillow.  I got the pillow for 50% off which meant that I only paid $0.50 for this adorable pillow. It is in my bedroom at the moment, but once I get the spare bedroom together I plan on putting it in there.

Its so sweet. I always think of my older sister when I see holly hobbie stuff because my mom loved dressing her up like holly when she was little. Those pictures are so cute. 

I snatched this journal up so quickly! I just love that is brand new and was only $1.99. I love journals, and I am trying to decide what this journal will hold. My lists, thoughts, church notes, oh the options are endless with an empty journal. I also got the little easel that the journal is standing on for $1.00.

My last find was a wonderful wall clock. Yellow tags were 50% off today at goodwill, and this beautiful clock happened to be 50% too! I got it for $15.00. I just love it, and I cant wait to hang it on our wall. 

Finally here is my find from last week that I did not get an opportunity to post about. I finally found a tanker desk. I have been wanting a tanker desk for quite some time, and when I spotted this desk at a yard sale I squealed with excitement. I have been looking on craigslist for so long trying to find one at a decent price. They are generally anywhere between $50.00-$200.00. I got mine for $20.00!

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
