Today, I found a candle holder. It was horribly rusted over. I should have taken the "pre" picture, but forgot. It took an hour of sanding with 600 and 400 grit paper, but the results are well worth the effort:
So that cost me 43 cents! Then I remembered a serving plate I had found quite some time ago at another thrift store and pulled it off the shelf and cleaned it up:
Today's second find was a heating thing - put the candle inside and pot on top. Probably an incense burner, but I found it charming, especially at just 45 cents!
I do love to make "dust corners" - little scenes of things I collect - that are good at collecting dust!
but that looked too plain, so I added candles and some flowers and I think this is the beginning of a new dust corner in my home!
While in Ft Lauderdale, Ruth took me to numerous thrift stores. I got one photo in a brand new goodwill store down there, I swear it looked like a Dillards or Macy's! Quite impressive! The home goods section looked just like a Hobby Lobby. But of course, they told me I couldn't take photos. :o)
So, I am now a home for unwanted Judaica.....much better than leaving it at the Goodwill store! Wonder what I'll find on my next thrifting trip? It's always such a fun surprise!!!
