My thrifty Memorial Day Weekend

Ok, so this weekend my hubby was helping his parents with memorial day flowers and what not.  That left me alone to go thrifting.  I had such a great time and look at the loot I picked up.

sectioned basket

vintage ceiling tiles and white lamp

picture frames

file holder thingy

I am still keeping my eye out for a few specific things, but, all in all, I love what I got.  The little white lamp is going to be transformed and put in my master bathroom.  I have no idea what I am gonna do with that urn, but, I just loved it.  Especially for $5.00.  I also picked up a few picture frames.  I have seen quite a few crafts that I want to try and they all use picture frames.

 I will confess early.  I have a thing for office supplies.  I just love them.  Pens, pencils, paper of any kind, and especially containers.  This file holder thingy really has me exited.  I can hardly wait for the computer desk challenge.

I did find these vintage ceiling tiles.  They have a great pattern, but, are very rusty.  Can anyone tell me how to clean them up?  And how to display them??????????

Ok, the sectioned basket will appear in my next post.  I love reading the Nesting Place with the Nester.  I love how she says it doesn't have to be perfect.  She uses baskets for her utensil drawers and it looks so cool.  I am going for that look and I hope they will evolve into something prettier.

Did anyone else have a great thrifty weekend.  If so please post and let me know.
