Went to the thrifty shops after the dentist yesterday and had so much fun. I would just stand and stare at things. Finally settled on bringing home a bunch of snowmen. My brother and his family came today and brought pizza for lunch. He and his son fixed my KeroSun space heater so I could warm up the garage. I needed a large place to play today. :o)
Everything at the thrifty store was half off so this little gem was $2.99. I unassembled it and tossed the words. Gave me 7 snowmen to play with!
The hat on this little Santa got saved - the rest got boxed up for another idea later on. :o)
The little hat went on this guy. A snowman in a tuxedo? Just too cute for words!!! He has "tails" in the back of the jacket!
I think this was a quarter….
This one was 47 cents….
another quarter for this….when they are so cheap, I just have to bring them home!!!
The sleigh is pretty well chewed up. wood showing through the paint. I thought about stripping it, but decided I'd just be lazy! Only $4 for this.
After taking everything apart, I used my low temp glue gun to reassemble all the little snowmen on top of the sleigh.
And then I put it outside on my patio table. I counted up and I have a total of $8.00 in this entire thing and it is just too cute! Someone else's trash is definitely my treasures! Hope it puts a smile on your face!
But oops! I realized you could see the sleigh where the paint had worn off. NOT good! I had parts of an old wreath that I took apart even more and then glued it around the base. Well, I do think it's complete now! Will wait and put it back outside on the table in the morning. Going to enjoy it inside tonight! :o)
I just get the biggest kick out of recycling stuff! I hope you all will continue to take what you don't want to the thrifty store so I can continue to have this much fun!!!
