Thrifty Fun for Tuesday Treasures

I have a new blog friend named Melody who lives in a house on the side of a hill, and does a fun thing called:

Tuesday Treasures 

She encouraged me to join in.. so here is my inaugural Tuesday Treasures post. I thought I'd post about some recent "junking" finds.  My MIL likes to go thrift shopping and some of the stores give a good discount for "seniors" on a certain day of every week.  Ironically, the discount days at her fave shops are .. you guessed it. TUESDAYS. :)  So recently we were visiting, along with my SIL's family from Phoenix and my MIL, SIL and I went junking together.  It was so much fun, and I've never found so many cute things for soo cheap! 50% cheaper with my MIL's discount! Santa Rosa has some really good thrift stores!  Here are some of the things I found.. (there was more but I will just show you a few)

Little mason jar-like S&P shakers.. They have come in soo handy!

This really great glass measuring tumbler which has all kinds of obscure measurements on it. And a little cannister for salt. :)

Clear glass jars for the bathroom in different shapes and sizes.  My mom has one like the medium sized one that I remember from when I was a little girl.. so it's very nostalgic.

And.. this wooden key hanger.. I might spray paint it.. hmm.. and a little sunflower hook.

The key kind of goes with a couple of other keys I've collected.. I guess I have a small thing for keys. :)

I posted this pic before, but it is such a treasure find .. my MIL found it another time when she was thrifting and picked it up for me. An entire bolt of quilting cotton for about $5!

One woman's trash is another woman's treasure!!  But what I most treasure, and what is priceless, is the time I got to spend with my MIL, and my SIL doing something fun like this.  We had such a great time.  And all of my little finds will always remind me of them, and the wonderful day we spent together!


I love going to thrift store, you dear great with the glass canisters and the cotton fabric. The cost is great.

Oh I am a 'junker' from w-a-y back. I even had an antique store for a few years. It gets in your blood, I think it's mainly 'the thrill of the hunt'!!!!

Good finds girl!

I guess we have some things in common! I adore op shops (Opportunity Shops here in Australia) and as you can see from my Tuesday Treasure I have had some lovely finds also.

I Love your glass measuring cup, I have lot of old recipe books that sometimes have VERY obscure measurements!

Have enjoyed browsing your blog - and adore the name!

Hi Kelli, you have some gorgeous finds. I have had a lovely visit at your blog with a cup of tea, hope to be back soon!

Welcome to Tuesday Treasures, a wonderful group of people play along. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you post. I love what you have shared this week, especially those little salt and pepper holders.

Op shop shopping is great...you never know what 'treasure' you will discover. You did very well in your treasure hunting Kelli. It's lovely to have those memories of fun days spent together.
