Neat Finds!

Yard sale find....

Really cool milk glass nesting bowls for $2! 

A church down the road from me was selling these stools. So cool. I got 2 wood ones and 4 metal square tips for $20!! It's my find of the week! 

Hello There!

Thrift store shopping (a quick trip because it is so cold here today!) 
I found this cute little set (5 small plates and creamer) 
I also got these $2 for the box, I figured I would use them in a hurricane or lantern to decorate for Christmas!!! 

On another note, I was in a store the other day and saw this. 
I love fresh greenery, especially for Christmas and especially magnolia. How simple (and basically FREE) is this swag? 

Speaking of "fresh". I had a man cut me some log rounds to use as chargers in my dining room this year. 
He charged me only $20 for 12! Can't beat that right?? The ones at hobby lobby were $15 a piece! 
I made these the other day (chalkboards). I think I'm going to use them on my tree. They cost me hardly anything to make but chalk paint takes many coats!! Ugh. Oh well. I'm happy with the outcome. 

We are getting a real tree this year and doing a lot more of a rustic/ natural feel. I can't wait!!!
