My husband was away last night on a church men's retreat, so I had me a night out at the thrift store. When I got home from work yesterday I decided that I was going to take my weekly trip to the thrift store a day early. I had so much fun because I didn't feel that I had to rush back home. There wasn't alot of "finds" but I was really pleased with what I got. I always look at the wooden things and when I saw these items I knew that I could make them look old with some BLACK spray paint and a little sand paper. I paid $1.48 for each of the wooden items (both candlesticks together). I like old kitchen gadgets and saw the strainer. This one is a little rusty but I loved it. I paid $0.59 for it. My mother used to have one that she used to strain her tea in. She didn't use tea bags....used tea leaves. I can't wait to paint and put them up!
By the way--I stopped by the Dollar Tree and they had white pumpkins....YEA!!!!
