Hobby, Walmart and the Thrift Shop

It was a fabulous thrifting day (yesterday)~~but, first I have to show my new love from Hobby~~this gorgeous silk was 1/2 off last week~~I wanted something similar to an olive branch/bush~~this comes pretty close~~

So, yesterday was thriftin' day~~I instantly fell in love with these two glass vases with woven bottoms~~and only $2.00 each~~I'm thinking of staining them a tad darker~~maybe paint on a number~~

~~wire rack, old clay pot saucers, a little floral picture complete with rusty metal frame,  aqua bale~wire jar and some little glass votives~~

I'm getting out the E6000 to glue the votives as a base to some other glass dishes~~like this~~

~~and I may use some looking glass paint to them for the appearance of mercury glass.

And in the container/homegoods section of Walmart~~Ohhh~~had to get this $5.00 large ceramic container~~perfect to hold a plant on top my fridge. 

And~~it's usually this time of the year (every year) I get the urge to buy a house plant of some description~~maybe it's the yearning for warm, spring air and to be outside again??  Are you ready to pot a plant or two? 

See you at these fun parties~~
