New Thrifty Finds

I had a pretty good trip to Good will the other day.
Check out my spoils!
 I found two little votive candle holders and a tart pan.  I can't wait to make a tart!! I also picked up a thermos, my daughters both like taking soup to school so it's nice to have an extra one around.
This cut glass and silver bowl looked so sparkly and I loved the salad tongs that came along with it.
 This was my favorite find from the day- a Smith and Hawken pear shaped candle holder.
 I love pears in my decor and I loved the cheap-o price too.  It would have made a nice gift and it did, from me to me!
I tucked it in with my winter table scape.
 I was ready for a change from the Christmas red and white decor.  I used my paper globes from this Thanksgiving post too (two are in the vases and one is out on the table top).
I also switched out my mantel to all wintry whites and silver.  The white candle holders that I got on this trip are being used too.
The silver"love" candle holder is nestled in among the white objects (and I can use it again next month for the Valentine's mantel=score!).
Are you switching up your decor after the holidays?
Any fun thrifty finds lately?

I love all of the great finds you got - the pear is wonderful! I went about two weeks without decorations up after Christmas, but I have all my Valentine's Day decorations out now. It is my favorite to decorate for, so I decided to put it all up early. Your winter tablescape is gorgeous, I love the colors!

Nice finds! I love your mantle! =) The candles and decor are so cozy. The little tart pan is so cute.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

No finds! But I am kind of changing things up a bit. I'm going for spring already with some pussy willows. Probably a little premature given the fact that we are supposed to get a couple feet of snow tonight!

Good job! I'm never that lucky at thrifting. Your photos are wonderful and your decor is very pretty.

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I still have all my Christmas decorations up...including the tree. I really have no desire to take it down yet, but the cats are starting to get into things. I guess I left temptation around too long. I might start taking things down this weekend...depending upon the football games. Your winter decorating is lovely. Great finds at Goodwill.

Mel said...

Ohhh, you have been lucky! I love that pear and it looks great in your vignette.

Sue said...

Love your mantle. And your loot!

Hi! Visiting from Sassy Sites. Love the mantel. Thanks for the ideas, I've been struggling with what to put on our mantel after Christmas.

Jenny said...

Hi Heather! That pear is definitely a score!

And I love your mantel designs. I just leave the same thing up all the time. If I wasn't moving I'd have to actually put a little effort into it after this Inspiring link to the letter "I".

Thanks for letting us treasure hunt vicariously through your post.

A+
