:: Finally Sharing My Finds ::

Happy Monday everyone! I am finally sharing my finds from my day out thriftin’ junkin’  antique-in’  & lunchin’ with Kindra from At Home With K. You can see the post she made about her wonderful finds HERE. She got some great stuff…and all of it at great prices!

The box on top I have had for a long time. But I got the two trunks on our girls day out. Lovin’ the colors, a muted robin’s egg blue. Haven’t found a home for them yet ::

Little oil cans. Why did I buy these you ask?....I just thought they were cute! I don't own any others, I guess they just caught my eye ::

This is a tiny strainer. The handle pops off so I will be making a mini shoo fly screen. I got three other strainers in varying sizes ::

My new collection of flower frogs. They are so awesome. They are metal & heavy ::

Crocks and Frogs 006

For those of you who may not know what flower frogs are. You put them in the bottom of a jar and then when you put your fresh flowers in the jar....the stems stick in these and they hold the flowers up! Lately I have been seeing people tuck vintage postcards, recipe cards, tags or photos in between the spikes for display! :)

And last but not least, my dollar crock ::

I love this size of crock, they have so many uses! And you can’t beat the price ::

It was a great day! How fun is it that you can meet someone through blogging, find out that you live a few minutes from each other. Meet in person and form a friendship! I am blessed to know you Kindra and I am looking forward to our next adventure!

I hope you all have a fabulous day today! Make it a great week! And don’t forget about MY SPRING GIVEAWAY! It’s open through this Friday the 22nd!!
