Spring {Ahead} Thrifting (and CSN Stores Giveaway!!)

I hit up one of my favorite thrifting jaunts last week and I was walking around with only these in my hands.
They are tiny speckled eggs. It took me awhile to really see what else I wanted.
I did come home with a nice little stash (and only spent $8.75!!)

I loved this tiny rustic house. It looks like a bunny cottage (and I also found this bunny figurine for my Easter village)

I liked the quote on this Irish mug.

and the painted shamrocks..
It was actually made in Ireland!!

I also picked up this mossy basket and some more blocks.

and these Easter eggs that look hand painted.


More blocks! Look at the knife on one of them! ?
They were giving out free shamrocks at the garden center yesterday. I popped one into the mossy basket and it looks all fresh and springy!


I also picked up some wheat grass for this basket and added another shamrock plant for a sweet springy look. So even though it's not quite Spring yet, I'm getting a head start on it. 
(Hence the title Spring Ahead).

It's still Blogiversary week so please enter my csnstores gift card giveaway!!
This giveaway is now closed.

Looks like you found tons of goodies! Lucky you, I seem to "miss" more than I "hit" at thrift stores.
