Gotta love those dollar bins at Target.
These plastic holders fit into my bathroom spaces and worked great for organizing toiletries and jewelry. It makes me happy to have some order for these things.
And I found two things on a Goodwill excursion. I'm tickled with my $9 lamp. I wasn't sure if I would like it but I was quite pleased. I put a black lampshade on it from another lamp. It has three light settings which are great because I prefer to have it on low during the day.
The other thing I found was a blouse with a pearled up collar. I've learned to look beyond and see how I can repurpose things. I removed the collar so I could cut off the beads.
The reason the pearls caught my attention was because I wanted to add some to this rose I made at the Sweethearts on the Homefront art retreat. Besides, when I purchased this sweater clip at a garage sale, one of the pearls was missing (where the pink arrow is pointing). Would you believe the pearl was the right size for the sweater clip? Also they were smaller than the ones on the rose and with a slightly different shade of color which I think added interest.
Here they are all fixed up.
I put the pearls in this little bottle I found at the Country Living Fair. I'm on the lookout for a little black lid for it. These pretty things placed on my desk make me happy while I blog.
I enjoy seeing what you find at thrifty places. What have you found lately?
