Treasure Hunting

The other day I stopped by to visit my grandma and she reminded me that our St. Vincent De Paul thrift store had moved into a much bigger space. So I headed over there and let myself get lost in the joy of the hunt and the thrill of the find.

 I walked in the door and immediately saw this frame. Oh man!

I had to stop myself from running over- which gave me time to say a quick prayer that the price was right. I flipped that baby over $9.99 : SOLD. 
It almost love the picture too. Almost. It won't survive the DIY I have in mind for the frame though. 

This sweet little bowl : $1.99. With some ribbon laced through those holes, it's going to be a pretty sweet little accessory.

And my favorite buy of the day:

Seriously endless possibilities. The entire roll was $4.99. I can't even stand it. 

I'm excited to get my hands dirty and turn these cheap thrill into some awesome pieces.
