Today's Thrifty Treasures

Hope everyone has had a great weekend. Awoke to a round of thunderstorms early this morning and a heavy downpour. We needed the rain, but I could have done without the fireworks that went along with it all. I understand that quiet a few lost their power, but I was fortunate and did not.


Monday is time for "Today's Thrifty Treasures" hosted by Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality http://southernhospitalityblog.com/ . If you have not already, go over to visit Rhoda to see what she and the other participants have to share this week. These are the finials that I bought at HL's 90% off sale.

The one on the right was orig. $29.99 - bought for $3 (it went home with my daughter), and the one on the left was orig. $19.99 - bought for $2.

Originally $29.99 - bought for $3. This one is very heavy!

The one on the left in the first picture will probabley get painted black to go with one of candle holders I painted black - not sure just yet. The one in the last picture - not sure what I will do with it as have not decided what room I am going to use it in . Have you ever gotten to a point that you just come to a "stand still" in making decisions? I am at that point and it is because I have to many unfinished projects going at the same time. Of course I did not help the situation as I went to a bead show yesterday, (bought a few things) so more projects!! My daughter called yesterday and said they won't be able to come in today, because ____________!!!! Well Guess What?? It is a good thing, because I had forgotten they had planned to come. Oooops!!
Have a great week!

Floss said...

What incredible things! What do you call them? They look very classic - a great buy.

I find that the inability to make decisions/do anything piles up and then suddenly there's a breakthrough and you finish three projects in a day! Hope that happens to you soon...

Love the finials! I'm glad that I am not the only one that forgets thing, lol ;o)

Thanks for touring my creative space and leaving a comment ;o)

Hi Glenda,
Great finials! I know what you mean about having too many unfinished projects ... maybe we should declare a moratorium on shopping until we use what we already have! Nah ... on second thought ... probably not going to happen, is it?

So funny about forgetting your daughter was coming to visit! Sounds like something I'd do!

Bye for now,
Bill

Kelli said...

I'm addicted to finials!!! I love the ones you found!!

The Cockrells said...

Those finials are gorgeous! I now must find some for my living room!

You mentioned on my blog, the bench I received from my in-laws...I turned it over, and it's attached to a backer board thingee...I'm not sure I'd be able to do it with my staple gun, but I wish I could since I haven't sewed anything since junior high! I will have to think on this thing, cuz it's a lovely bench. =)

I can never seem to hit HL at just the right time. You did good. Jackie

Shauna said...

Wow, those are nice. You did great. I don't have a HL close by. :(

grannyann said...

I went by HL this weekend but the largest discount was 50% off. Didn't see anything I needed or wanted.

Bonnie said...

Why have I never heard of finials before? Where do they come from and where can I get some? lol.

ellen b. said...

Your goodies are just great. Have fun painting some of them!

Marie said...

Hello Glenda - thank you for sharing your great finds! Those finials are so cool. Second blog I've seen where ya'll have scored big time at HL! I don't have a location here in CA. So bummed. Looks like a great place for home decor.

You found some really great pieces at HL! I wonder if they have anything left...

Embellished Bayou said...

I just love hobby lobby clearance, I have to go check & see if they've added anything new to mine!

Alicia said...

Thanks for visiting my space. I wasn't sure what HL was but I knew I wanted to find it. Now I'm going to have to google Hobby Lobby and find out where the closest one is. Great Finds!

I'll have to find out also when we have a bead show to see if I can find some charms. Thanks for the tip.

Nice scoops!!! I have been a tad frustrated with Hob Lob as different locations have different % off in my area- ugh!
