Thrifty Changes

I was thinking about buying one of those ceramic hands that you put your rings on to hold my earrings, odd I know, but I don't ever take my rings off and I have a few pairs of hoops that I always wear. Anyway, I found this little treasure and now it sits on my vanity and it holds not just my earrings. The little glass container was also a thrift find. I am a sucker for little glass jars.

I was so happy to find this guy.

And now it hangs in my bathroom.

Nice tall vase wrapped in jute.

Spray painted white.

And this voluptuous lady. Reminiscent of the 80's mod phase. I swear everything was mauve. Both Ryan's and my parents had this color carpet in their houses and not in a little girl's room.

And it was only 80 cents.

I spray painted her black. Add some twigs that Johnsie and I cut from trees in our yard and then I added some little white paper flowers. I need to make more of the flowers when I get a chance. The mirror was also a thrift find. She was gold before I painted her.

Now, I just need to figure out how to cover up that dang heart on my bench. I have a matching stand with hearts all over it. Ugh. Thinking I will cover it with some batting and fabric.

These are my next project.

Great finds! Love the towel holder. Isn't funny how almost anything looks better with black paint?

Happy New Friend Friday! You have a real knack for finding great forms! The first thing I see is color, and I never would have made it past the mauve! Great job-

I like all of your finds, Cindy. You did a great job transforming them. I really like the towel holder in the bath.

Have a great weekend!

Love the towel holder! Not sure I could have seen that if I would have found it at the store! You are so good at thrift store shopping.

I love the towel holder.

I love glass jars and bowls too...they are just so pretty and unique.
