Thrifty Thursday-Recent Finds

Recently I made my way to Jane's curiosity shop
and came out with these beauties.

This corn seed sack was a total surprise.
I've never seen one for sale before.
I'm thinking of keeping my homemade bread in it.

This linen napkin was the perfect shade of brown
and only cost a buck.
If there had been more of them,
I would have snatched them up.
I'm looking for some this color 
to line the insides of cupboards and cabinets.
I prefer using fabric to paper liners.

For now, this one will be used on the foyer table.

She had several of these colored metal bins.

It's being used in the bathroom drawer
to hold our supply of bar soap.

I couldn't pass this beauty up.
I've gotten aprons from this shop before,
but this one was callin' my name!
And just in time for Valentine's Day!

Hope you get to spend the day 
doing something you love
with someone who means the world to you.

  1. What cool finds! I loooove thrifting. I'd much rather do that than shop for something brand new. Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. The best part is that I didn't even break a 5-dollar bill!

  4. It never occurred to me to use cloth napkins to line shelves! I've lined my shelves with old wrapping paper, parchment paper and brown bags, but I like the idea of the cloth! That way, when they get dirty, they can be washed and reused!

    Also, I have a nearly identical red gingham apron with embroidery! I love it! Perfect for Valentine's, Christmas, and even the 4th of July!

    1. I prefer cloth because I believe the glue on the paper liners attracts bugs. Plus, they can be laundered.
      Isn't that apron the cutest? So glad you have one too!

  5. What a sweet apron you found! Red and white is so cheerful.

  6. Visiting from LHITS DIY Linky - great finds!


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
