Neat Things I found!

 It’s 11Pm and I can’t sleep so what do you do…you post! LOL I work tomorrow so I’ll be ahead of the game this way because I wanted to link to Southern Hospitality where you can show off your thrifty finds! I don’t go to thrift stores just Goodwill so I’m sure it’s just about the same thing.
This is my mantel for now, I’m always changing it but this time I really, really like it so it’s staying, I found the vase for $1.99 looks like it’s galvanized doesn’t it? It’s not I don’t know what it’s made of but I liked that it has that look to it! I think it will look nice when I put some fall leaves in it!
I love this platter, on the back it says Homer Laughlin, so pretty and dainty looking, not bad for .25!
All of the plates below where found at Goodwill too, the one on the lower right I found just this past Saturday for the same price. They are above the desk I painted white.
I’ve been wanting one of these mirrors for a while now and I finally found one for $5.99 I love it because it’s so ornate. Now to spray paint it!
I guess I should get to bed, I hope you stop by and leave a comment I love to read them♥
