Thrifty Finds

So sometimes, I just get so excited about thrifting that I have to share! I love finding good deals and keeping my home stylish at the same time! So here's a few items that I've purchased recently:

Cute orange vase from JoAnnes (not really a thrift store, I know, but it was 70% off!).

A velvety pillow for the love seat, GW, $4.99.

2 Paper star garlands for all those parties we will be throwing in the near future! The package said they were made in Bangladesh too! GW $1.00 each.

And finally, the piece de resistance, this lovely frock! Savers, $9.99.

Don't worry too much, I plan to work some sewing magic on it and transform it into something fun and flirty for a ball that we are attending soon. A ball! Eeeee!

So there you have it. A few of the latest thrifty finds around the Marx household. Have you found anything awesome lately? I'd love to hear all about it!
