Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

  I was sure that I would not have any treasures to show you this week, but I was surprised by an awesome estate sale and a quick stop to goodwill.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to share some husband love today
My Mr Joyful Thrifter spoils me tremendously! He bought me the IPhone 5 for Christmas, which I don't think I have put down since I got it. He also gave me a lovely necklace and a few other fun treasures. Then he took me to the thrifty stores this weekend. I am very blessed by my sweet husband. I LOVE YOU MR JOYFUL THRIFTER!!!

Alrighty I am done now. Onto the fun treasures that I found this week. 

As we were driving to church this morning we saw a sign for an Estate sale. I probably would not have stopped but Mr Joyful Thrifter said we had a few minutes to spare, so we pulled over. The first thing I spotted was this little square table. In my mind I am jumping with joy because it is JUST what I have been wanting for my kitchen. I casually ask the man how much he wants for it, and he says needs to ask because he is not sure if it is even for sale. I was so sad for a second. After he checks he says "yeah its for sale, how about $20.00?" I look at the table and think good price but I am going to offer $15.00. The lady running the sale says how about $10.00 SOLD!!! 
Then Mr Joyful Thrifter spotted these super cute yellow folding chairs. Perfect for my new little table. The seller said $10.00 for all four that she was selling. I asked if she would break up the set and I would give her $5.00 for 2 of the chairs. She was more then happy to just get rid of them. 
Here is my cute kitchen from the family room with my new table and chairs. I think it looks so cute. 
I spotted this old mirror sitting in a corner, and came to find out it was part of a dresser she was selling. I again got brave and asked if she would sell just the mirror to me. She was so glad that I was buying up so much stuff she said of course! She asked me if $5.00 was reasonable and I said ABSOLUTELY!!!
 I can't wait to clean up this mirror and paint it!
As we were leaving and paying the lady I spotted this ladder from the corner of my eye. How much I asked, and she replied $3.00 SOLD!!! I have already started decorating this cutie. 
Now onto my goodwill finds. This adorable needle point wall hanging was $4.99. I just love the little mushrooms in the left hand corner. 
Sweet little flower painting for $1.50. I am nabbing these cute little paintings any time I see them for a wall collage I going to do in my living room.
