Thrifty Fun!

This weekend was Needville's City Wide garage sale! One of my favorite times of the year. Many, many people in my our hometown of Needville have garage sales.

This year I decided not to wake up too early to go since there wasn't many things I was looking for and those items weren't a big/quick seller items. So my mom and I left at about 8:30.

We decided to try something new this year and stick to the outskirts of the town, where the older homes are. Usually we go into town where the new homes are, but those get SO crowded!!

Here is what came home with me! :)

Mirror- $2.00. 
This is going to be made into a chalkboard! 

A better idea of the green color.
 It's a cute color, but it's going to get repainted. 
(Burney says hi!)

Pizza Pan- FREE!
We stopped by my cousin's garage sale and she had this in a "free" box. 
As of right now, it has 2 coats of chalkboard paint on it!
A magnetic chalkboard!

I got this to be made into a dry erase menu planner like those I've been seeing all around blog land!
However, it is a little bit bigger than I wanted. So I'm thinking the pizza pan will be the menu planner. So I'm trying to figure out what to do with this one!
Picture- .25! (yep, just a quarter!)

1. Blue Avon Jar (matches the one my granny gave me) -.50
      - Those jars go from $6- 17 on Etsy!
- I was so excited to get this so cheap!

2.  Paint Sample- Free!
     - From my cousin

3. Pampered Chef Food Scraper- .25
- From a "everything's a quarter" type garage sale

4.  Silver Plated Owl Trivet- .75!
- I was SUPER excited about this one! 
-I've been eying owl trivets on Etsy for a while now. 
-This one on Etsy goes from $8- 18!

Surprisingly this was new in the box (and plastic bag), never opened!
Guess it's been in a closet for a good while!

5. Ladybug wooden beads - .25
- For a wreath

6. Tubberware Popsicle maker (brand new!) - $3
- (It's all the way to the right)

Cute owl painting- .50
Can you tell I like owls? :)
I have 2 other small pictures that I'm going to group with this one!

That's it! I only took $10 with me and I spent $7! Yay!
