Just A Few Thrifty Treasures

All y'all burning up too! Wow it's flaming hot here!
No yard sales for me. :(  The hubs had to work Saturday and the week before I went and didn't buy one thing! I hit up my favorite consignment shop and scored a few finds that are pretty awesome!

3 Ralph Lauren shirts for $8.00!!! 2 was still brand new with tags for $3.00 each and the other one was $2.00!
 
 
I got this beautiful firetruck picture for one of my boys rooms. It was only $3.00!!! SCORE! I can't wait to have it framed. Finding cute stuff for boys is hard!

This is how it looked when I bought it. It was in a cheap poster frame and that is gift tissue paper in the back ground! Crazy right?!

I bought this huge ugly picture for $8.00. I'm working on a project right now with this beauty!

And finally, I got this planter thingy for $2.00 at Aldi!!! That is where I get my eggs at! Make sure you check there clearance!

That's all for me ladies!!!! I hope y'all found lots of good treasures this week too! Try to stay cool!

Also, I just wanted to say thank you to each and every follower!!! Y'all really do mean the world to me. I'm going to have a awesome giveaway real soon once I reach 100 followers!!! I'm only 10 away!!! So stay tuned!!!



I'm joining these FAB parties

How do you do it? I never find anything at yard sales. You have a good eye. But I'm with you....it's too hot for that these days! Lisa~

Linda said...

Great finds like always, Jennifer~ those shirts are awesome!

DogsMom said...

I agree it is harder to find boy things to decorate with. You have to be creative and think ouside the box. Great picture though.
Hotter than usual here and for longer than we usually have summer. Not looking for winter yet, but autumn will be enjoyable.

Jennifer, That firetruck picture is just SO cool! My brothers and I had a pedal car similar to that when we were little. I remember that it was blue- wow- hadn't thought of that in ages. I'm sure your transformation of it will be fantabulous. I need to check out Aldi this week. I usually run in for my eggs, milk, and fruits/veggies then dash out. I love that crazy little grocery store. :-) Sue

Pam said...

That fire engine picture is adorable. Why, oh why would anyone think tissue paper is equivilent to a nice mat? Can't wait to see what you do with the ugly women picture.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Jennifer, the fire truck picture is SO cute and it IS hard to find stuff for boys! Mine are bigger now and it is even HARDER!

Love the planter too, I got one at aldi and have been using it all summer!

Vanessa said...

You are the star of the PARTY...it's your day! I can't wait to get my flag up at my house...I'm at my beach condo celebrating our 25th anniversary until Wednesday. You really got one great deal on those RL polo shirts! Hope your AC gets fixed soon...hang in there!

Blessings,
Linda

Victoria said...

Great price on the shirts! I love your little planter, so cute:)

I saw your smiling little face on my sidebar this morning on Linda's blog:)

Strangely here in So Ca we're having very mild weather, cloudy and barely hitting 80 but I'm enjoying it!

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

For not having a chance to shop, you sure did shop, LOL!
I love Adli, too!
I was there yesterday, in fact!
A few days ago i was trying to comment on your rooster chalkboard and google would't let me! Ugh.
But what I wanted to say was:
You know I love chalkboard! I have a whole wall in my cafe' that is chalkboard!
It is addicting!
Hugs,

Hi Jennifer...

My friend, I just had to come by after reading that sweet note that you left for me on my Tea Rose bedroom...thank you!!! You made my heart smile with your warm and generous compliments!!!

Well...it looks like you scored big time, my friend! The Ralph Lauren shirts...beautiful! Hmmm...or should I say handsome? Hehe! Anyway, I just adore the print of the old firetruck peddle car...that's just precious! It'll look great up on the wall of your son's room! I also really like the other print as well...you have me wondering what kind of project you are going to use it on??? Hehe! Thank you so much for sharing your new thrifty finds with us...I'm so happy for you, my friend!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Wow, great deals! I will have to go to Aldi to check for those planters, I like to 'stock up' on a few before the next growing season- hoping it will encourage me to try harder at gardening! lol ;)
