Thrifty Thursday

I went home to Lynchburg a couple weekends ago and mom, Amanda, and I hit up one of the local Goodwills.  I found this cute little lantern in a very fallish yellow color for $2.00  I considered not getting it though, because if you just put a votive candle in there it would melt all over the place and make a mess, but I didn't think a jar candle would look good in it.  I ended up getting it and decided to just figure something out later.  After considering a few options I put a votive candle in a mason jar lid, and so far it seems to be working well!

I also got this cheese slicer for .50 cents.  We had one like this when I was growing up, but since living on my own I've not had one, and I'm not good at slicing cheese with a knife.  The slices always turn out fat on one end and paper thin on the other, so I'm looking forward to having nice evenly sliced pieces of cheese again.


  1. love the lantern! such a great idea:)

  2. Can we please go thrifting or antiquing in Asheville?!? You always find the best treasures and I want you to impart your wisdom to me while we're in the store.

    p.s. I think I need a cheese slicer! I've never had one but my cheese slices are always having that too fat/too thin problem too.

  3. i love the lantern! i'm on the look out for clearance ones for our house right now!! ps did you get a new counter top haha??
