A Great Find...or Two

I am loving our Texas weather!!
It makes me want to be outside and it gets my creative juices flowing...is that weird?
I had a chance to hit a thrift store or two last week and found a couple of things I thought were fun and knew I could do something creative with them.
Remember my old door I turned into a hall tree..if you don't go check it out!
Well, it needed something on top, I wasn't digging the basket.
I found this darling old metal basket and knew it would be perfect up there.
Whatcha think??

I added some mason jars I found at a garage sale for $1.00 and a tag I made on the computer.
I have been drawn to metal baskets lately..I love them!
These jars would be cute with some sunflowers in them..my favorite!

On a different thrift I found some beautiful old GLASS knobs. These things are heavy girls! I was so excited when I saw these and I couldn't believe they were only $1.00 (true story) for 10 knobs!! I brought them home and put them on a dresser in my living room to dress it up a bit! I love it!! The extra's I will save for a project for my next show. 

Plain black knobs


Whatcha think?? Do you plan on thrifting this weekend?
If so, I would love to hear what you find!

Have a beautiful day!!
