Thrift Store Finds

I just had to have a TS FIX. (thrift shopping therapy) LOL......Found some fun stuffs.....


this is not "real" solid wood, but a composit of some sort. But it will look good painted and primed up. My DD has been looking for one for awhile




This little tin candle holder needs a new paint job



and this little battery candle needs some grubby work done on it...a little modge podge and spices will help fix it up.





But this is my "treasure". The price tag on the bottom said $29.99, and I paid 1 dollar. This one I'll keep for myself.






We have had more rain in the night. I love it, but DH has hay down in the fields, so he is needing some warm sunny days so his hay will dry.......but it is nice not to have to water everything everyday!

WOW, love the lantern!!!
How's the grandbabe doin :) Growing fast, I'll bet!
I don't really have a tutorial for those cherries!
I used some old partly dried up wood filler i had here...I was goin to throw it out, but decided to try rolling into balls for the cherries and it worked. I just stuck some real cherry stems in the balls while the filler was still soft...let it harden, then painted the balls using differnt shades of red! That's it! It was sorta a trial/error thing! You could probably use clay...or anything that hardens.

Have a great weekend!
