Today’s Thrifty Treasures & A Question for The Texas Gals!




My question for the Texas gals is:  What stores/flea markets do you gals recommend that I shop in the Houston area?   I love antiques or any good buys.  We’re planning a trip with our oldest son to that area.  He will start medical school in Houston next month!  Alrighty….on to Today’s Thrifty Treasures!

Welcome to Today’s Thrifty Treasures.   Be sure to visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for more Today's Thrifty Treasures participants.

I don’t have much to show this week.   I found one of this though and I can’t wait to make a chalkboard!  I paid just a 1.00 for this!  Woohoo!IMG_3610

I paid 50 cents each on these!  I am planning on spray painting these to a black with a white monogram on the center and use them in my twin boys’ room.  The little basket was also a 1.00.   I haven’t thought of where I will put it but I’m sure I’ll find a place.  IMG_3607 

And lastly, I bought this for a 1.00 as well!   IMG_3588

And that is it.  There weren’t many yard sales this past weekend.  Y0u all make sure to stop by Rhoda’s blog  at Southern Hospitality and check out what everyone else found in their thrifting!  

Have a wonderful day!

I really like the planters just the way they are. I'm sure they'll look cute with the monogram.

LOVE your tray! The handles are a score! Can't wait to see the finished product! And how do you do your monograms? I want to do one on a tray I just painted but can't figure out the easiest way to do that.??
Thnks for stopping in!

A doctor in the family?...Score!
Love all your finds, can't wait to see the re-dos.

As for the poolboy, he's very camera shy, he swore the Playboy centerfold was going to be his last public appearance.

Great finds. I love the planters. I am looking for nautical stuff myself for a tablescape. Have a great weekend.

Sandra, you did good! I just made my first chalkboard this week too. Looks like we have the same zebra runner too.
