Thrifty Thursday

I used to do posts called Goodwill Goodies whenever I had some good finds at Goodwill, but I've decided to start doing Thrifty Thursday posts instead.  For one thing, covering a specific topic on certain day frees up the stress of having to come up with something to blog about.  Secondly, like I said in my thrifting posts on Sherri's blog, thrifting isn't limited to Goodwill, although that is where I do the majority of my thrift shopping.

So let's get to the good stuff!  I visited two different Goodwill's about two weeks ago and this is some of what I got...

This Vera Bradley place mat for $1.97.  I'm not planning on actually using it as a normal place mat, but I thought it might be a nice backdrop for when I want to take pictures of food for the blog.

This skirt.  I don't remember exactly how much it was, but it was around $3 or $4.

This pan for $4.97.  I didn't have an ovenproof pan/skillet and had been wanting one for a while.  I can't tell you how many times I have been reading a recipe that sounded so good, and then it would say "in an ovenproof skillet..." and I would just stop reading because I knew I couldn't make it, but now I can!

This knitted blanket for $1.67!  I love knitted blankets, and have been searching for one I really liked.  This one is a good size, and for $1.67 I could not pass it up!  I feel like I kind of have a granny living room, but I don't care, it's cozy and I like it!

And now I realize that my picture frames are crooked.  Oops!

  1. I like that blanket! When you find blankets at thrift/antique stores, how do you wash them?? I love the way old blankets look but the germs kind of make me nervous..
