Just to make my mom jealous...

Lately I have discovered the fine art of "thrifting". I have found some pretty awesome things--canisters for my kitchen, a ruffler foot for my sewing machine (for $2 might I add! It's a $65 part!), DVDs, ice cream dishes, and stuff to make a cake stand--just to name a few. My mom gets jealous when I tell her about all my finds. In my defense, I DID call and tell her about the ruffler so she could go get one too! I've wanted some apothecary jars for a while now, but I am way to cheap to pay at least fifteen bucks each for them. So I started collecting each time I went to the DI, glass candlesticks and jars. A few minutes and a little epoxy later and I had these beauties...
They are all mine for the low price of $6! Oh, plus a few pennies for the epoxy! Now I just have to decide where to put them!

So cool, Tonya! I haven't done the epoxy thing yet, but I think I may be addicted to "Oil-rubbed Bronze" spray paint! D.I. (Divine Inspirations) treasures never looked so great! :)
