Deals and Steals...

I have been doing a lot of junking in the past few months, and scored lots of odds and ends but always hesitate to post my finds until I have actually done something with them. (I'm just weird like that.) I'll show you a couple of things this week, and the rest next week. I started off with all of this stuff, for $4.
I spray painted the vase white, and another candleholder I had white, and put those funny globes on top of them. For now they are holding seashells that we got at the beach this year, but they will probably hold candles eventually.

I love them on my beach picture wall in the craft room/office.
The only thing I paid more than .50 for was this basket, and it was $1. It's new home is on Walker's bedside table. It holds all of the library books we have checked out so that they don't get mixed up with the boys' other books.
Originally I was gonna paint it, but decided I liked the chippy red finish and it goes great with Walker's cowboy themed room.


So there you have it, my deals and steals for the week. I am gonna share these over at Reinvented for Trash To Treasure Tuesday and Poppies at Play for Creative Cats. Stop by over there if you have a chance. I am always amazed by other bloggers' creativity!

I wouldn't have thought to add those candlesticks and globes together, but they look like you bought them that way. Love the white painted look!

Great finds! I love the bowls on the candlesticks. Lightbulb. I also love that you seperated the library books. That makes them super easy to find when they are due! Good job!
