Thank you for all the kind comments about my Valentine decorations! My husband came home from being gone all week and really loved them, especially the tree! I have one more Valentine post to do next week and then I’m done (promise)!

Last week I shared a few thriftstore finds that I altered. Today I’d like to share a few that were perfect just as is. These are all things I bought over the past couple months. The thriftstore (Goodwill) is across the street from the grocery store so I usually stop by at least once a week. I’m not much for going to garage sales since I hate getting up early. There’s practically nothing that I want bad enough to get me up at 5 or 6 am on a Saturday when I can sleep in! But I love thriftstores!
I got a rooster already in a perfect red, a little white soup tureen and a footed planter (although I may end up painting that one). Also…
Perfect black candle stick – it’s nice and tall with good detail -$2.82. Also…
Cute hanging pocket that I’ll use on my front door for the 4th of July, a brand new lantern (remember I’m collecting them for the summer). I saw similar ones at TJ Maxx for $12.99 and this one was $3.23. The little table was $3.53. (I don’t know why their pricing is so weird?) New ones in black are about $12 at Target. There’s a concrete patio that runs under the screened porch that I’m going to finally do something with this summer. All that’s there now is a bench. So I’m starting to collect things I can use for that.
I cleaned up the little tureen and put it with some of my other white dishes in my dining room. It fits perfectly!
I don’t think I’ve ever shown you the few pieces of monogrammed silverware that I have. LOVE them!!
Speaking of monograms (which I love). I made the candle by using a vinyl decal. Just rub it on and you’re done!
I just shopped my house for things to put on top of this cabinet. I used the rooster and candlestick from the thriftstore. I tried the footed planter but it just never looked right no matter what I put in it! The white star is the same one I glittered at Christmas (I had to sand the glitter and mica flakes off) and re-paint it. The little rooster picture is a piece of sample wallpaper boarder that I framed because I tried about 20 different things up there and I didn’t like any of them! I’m not sure that it’s staying but it’s good enough for the time being.
