Thrifty Thursday

Yep, it's that time again. . . Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville and Thrift Store Thursday at Homebody Holly's blog. Here are the finds of the week.

Cute little blue knit dress for my 5-year-old daughter ($ 1.99)

I love the little flowers across the front. After all, every girl needs a little bling, even in Kindergarten.

Circo top in tip top shape for 12-month-old daugher ($1.00)

Mini muffin tin exactly like the one I already have. ($1.99) Yay. . . now it won't take me 2 hours to bake a batch of mini muffins. I'm such a nerd.

Empty grain sacks. . . oh yes, my friends. . . and they're not smelly, or moldy, or yucky in any way. I've got great plans for these. ($2.49)

Giant fork and spoon. LOVE THEM! I've had my eye out for these babies for a while now.
(.99 each)

And, last but not least, check out this sweet little girl that I picked up for only 50 cents! And you thought your neighborhood Goodwill was filled with treasures!

I'm joking, but the little gingham dress was originally a women's shirt ($1.99) that I refashioned into this sweet little dress using a tutorial taught by my pal Connie of Green Apple Orchard. She got the idea from her super creative relative, Dana of MADE. These gals are so amazing and so willing to share their great ideas!

This little pink one was my first attempt. . . the shirt generously donated by Connie herself. I love the belt made from the leftover sleeve cuffs.

Happy thrifty Thursday! xoxo


Jane said... first comment is what an adorable little girl you have! And that transformation from a woman's shirt to that cute little dress was amazing. Great job. I also loved your other thrifty finds, especially the grain sacks...can't wait to see what you do with those.

Your daughter is adorable!
Love the grain sacks and the big utensils. My grandma used to have some similar in her kitchen.

Hi Kayleen,
The grain sacks are a huge find especially when you can find them in such great condition. They can really add some texture to your decorating.
Thanks for sharing!
