I don't go to the thrift store very often, but, yesterday, my sister and I decided to go to a new little consignment shop in town, called, Retail Therapy, cute name! I found a few things that I actually needed.
My husband and I compost - so I save all of my veggie and fruit scraps. I have been looking for something, (other than a Cool Whip container) to put scraps in, and look what I found! What do you think about this nifty little, "scrap/compost container"? I thought it was perfect! You can't really see through it, which is good, and it has little mushrooms all around the bottom . . . so cute! My sweet sis sent rhubarb home with me so I'm already putting it to good use with rhubarb ends. The best part . . . it was only $1.00, pretty thrifty!
( This picture was taken this spring, we really do have leaves on the trees. And we painted the barn on Tuesday!)
I also bought paint, so I can finally paint my grandmother's bench. I originally thought about painting it yellow, and putting a pretty stencil on the back, which I'm still going to do. But, I found the original color on the back of it when my husband was repairing it for me. It was a very nice shade of light, smokey blue, so I matched it as closely as I could - can't wait to started on this project! I think I'll put a big pot of flowers on each end . . . my grandmother would have liked that. Yesterday was her birthday, she would have been 106 years old :o)
Have a wonderful week-end!
