A Vignette or Two Using Thrifty Treasures...

I am linking up with the fabulous Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality for her Thrifty Treasures Party! Rhoda has a new address which is You are going to want to be able to find Rhoda....

I thought I would share a few vignettes that I have been working on. They are still a work in progress, per se...

This is sweet Chloe who was "lounging" in her favorite spot on my bench outside. I just thought this was a cute picture :)

This is a corner of my kitchen and I love the lamp. Seth got it for me and I just adore it!

Of course an obligatory shot of my honey pot that I got at the Estate sale a few weeks ago. I actually went back after it because I didn't get it the first time. It was still there, and only $2. I just love it for some reason...

This is in my den in the front window...I love that window! I am liking the way this is coming together, I changed it all around by taking my rabbit out of the window. He was pretty ticked, but I think he will get over it!

I love the birdcage, which I found at the wonderful TJ Maxx! The candlesticks I found at a yard sale for $3 for the pair and I spray painted them black.

You can also see out the window my future met monday post!

We are in the process of adding the mulch! Hopefully by next week, we will be done! We want to be done with that :)

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you have a great week!


  1. I sure do like that bird cage - so cute! Sorry about the ticked off rabbit! Linda

  2. $2 for that pot was quite a bargain!

  3. Happy Day !
    LOve all your finds - You Go Girl !
    Hugs ~ Kammy

  4. You have some great vignettes. I especially like that little table in front of the window. There's nothing better than a big window. :) Are you working on a flower bed? We are too. Part of my yard has never grown grass well so now we are going to grow bushes and flowers!

  5. I sure do love that lamp, but then anything with roosters is ok by me! I have that same birdcage, and I just love it! I took it apart so that I could put some impatiens in it, and it's hanging in my garden. It will come inside for the winter. I love TJ Maxx!

  6. that bird cage is way too cute!
    Oh, I have to say that I just noticed the pictures of you on the right - you are so beautiful!!!
    Have a great week!

  7. Your lamp is adorable! Quite original and whimsical ~ I love it!

  8. Cute honey, pot and read some of your previous posts. I would say the bush goes. I know from experience it will not look good in that state. Depending on the type, if you cut it wayyyyy back, it may put out and become more bushy and green. I cut some way back and they put out, and looked like new shrubbery. Jackie

  9. Love the birdcage! I am in search of one as we speak!

  10. I love the rooster lamp corner too.
    And I have some candle holders that I think I will paint! Yours look so good.
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment for me.
    I would love to visit sisters there next weekend and follow the yard sales.

  11. You got some bargains and I love the birdcage.

    Thanks for visiting me and I hope you'll come back often.

  12. Hi Lou Cinda :)

    Very cute treasures, but I think Chloe is the cutest by far ;)


  13. Hi Sweetie Pie!
    I love the table arrangement in your den. Why can't I find a great birdcage like that at my TJMaxx? I have been looking for one to put on my lanai. I might even put a bird in it! The little rooster lamp in the kitchen is extra special, and I understand why. I can't wait to see the area around your lovely little bench. I remember that you got rid of a bunch of grasses. Chloe is so sweet. How is she in the grasshopper catching department? I hope your summer is ticking along beautifully my friend, and that your boss is continuing to worship the ground that your lovely stilettos walk on!

  14. I love your honey pot and your birdcage. I would decorate that birdcage up cottage chic somehow.... very nice.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog! It means so much to me and please come again :)
