Thrift Store Finds & Giveaway Winner

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent the day thrfiting and I would have to say it was quite successful. Aside from picking up my night table which you will see next week I also managed to come away with a bunch of little goodies.

Remember my cake plate I made?  Well a good friend has asked me to send her the instructions so she can make her own.  I thought I'd go pick up what I needed and do a tutorial for a post since I didn't do that last time.  Can you believe I found the exact same plate?  What are the chances.  Here's what I came away with.

** I do realize there are 2 flamingos thereby making the word plural however, it's not that easy to change things after they've been saved.  Please overlook that:(

But now on to the good stuff.  Who won, who won, who won??  Well the lucky winner of the beautiful blanket is:

True Random Number Generator  26
Leah from Moss Eclectic.  I wish I had 26 blankets to give away for everyone who entered however there's only 1. Leah is about to have a baby and every baby should have an organic cotton blanket, don't you think?  Congrats Leah!!!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Congrats to Leah, what a fantastic prize! Can't wait to see what your end table will end up looking like AND how you put your treasures to use! I am going to post about mine on Monday, picking up the dresser {and paint} today!

  10. Love the flamingos! I just bought two gold crane figurines. Such fun pieces. Cannot wait to see what you do with this birdcage-chandelier thing...

  11. Carol, I love the flamingos.... I just bought a stork the other day at a thrift store!!! What is it with quirky things like that lately..Congrats to the winner!

  12. Those flamingos are neat! They'd look great spray painted a fun color (except something like hot pink, of course, unless you're feeling compelled to put them on someone's front lawn). :) I bought an ugly heron at a thrift store the other day. Gotta love leggy birds.

  13. good finds! What are your favorite places to thrift at? I usually make a day of it and hit a ton of places when I'm in the mood.
