Today's Thrifty Treasures & Metamporphis Monday



It's time once again for Today's Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality and Metamporphis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Make sure to check out the other blogs and what they've done and found!

Yesterday I found many great bargains from Goodwill. No more driving all over looking for that great yard sale. Just one stop, okay maybe two stops and then I can head for home.

This great white ironstone pitcher..

Another rolling pin, a globe bookend - only one side..

This lazy susan - I'll put in the downstairs bathroom to organize the cupboard...

Pewter creamer - I found a pewter sugar container last weekend...

Bathroom pretties for the bathroom counter...(never been used)....


Now on to my metamorphis - my laundry room. I posted about redoing our a laundry room with
burlap.

But we ran out of burlap and so we left the sad looking wicker shelf behind the door for another time. DH and I stapled more burlap on the wall and installed more shelfs. It's much easier to find stuff now and a lot more organized, and it's more manageable...

Before...
After....







Sunday's night TV is so good right now.. Big Brother, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, HGTV Design Star & Army Wives ....thank GOD for TiVo

And if you love to read, and you love to thrift - check out books by Mary Kay Andrews...she's my new favorite author! I've got two books to read too!!

I love your thrift store finds. Great deals. It's so nice to be organized, isn't it.

I haven't read anything by her. I'll have to check it out on Amazon. You know, I drop in Goodwill every so often. And I NEVER find anything. I'm so jealous of you ladies who come up with such great stuff! Someone must beat me to it! I love your organizing! Very inspiring.

Great GW finds -- I have never found anything THAT nice at GW ... better keep looking I guess!

The laundry room looks much more organzied and it even looks pretty...and how many laundry rooms can say that?

Hello Terry - thank you for sharing all your great finds! I especially love that pewter creamer. And what a neat idea to use the lazy susan in a bathroom cupboard for organization! I really like what you've done in your laundry room too.

Blessings,
Marie

I like everything you found! The pitcher is great, and so is the pewter sugar bowl, but the best of all are those kitties on your sidebar! How adorable!

I'm never at Goodwill at the right time, I miss all of the good stuff. Doesn't it feel good to be organized? I still have a long way to go.....Thanks for the heads up on some good summer reading. ~ Robyn
