Cheese Cloche Upcycled Into Mini Pumpkin Patch

There are certain things that I always find at thrift stores.  Nearly every time I go, I find a cheese cloche or dome tray. What do you call them? After pondering what to do with one I found several months ago, I finally knew what I would do with it. A centerpiece for fall or winter. And I set out to do just that!

Patriotic BBQ Wooden Tote Upcyled Thrift Store Find

I love red, white, and blue and of course our beautiful American flag – especially during summer.  I upcycled a thrift store find into a Patriotic BBQ Wooden Tote. As Americans, we celebrate the Fourth of July with family and friends, BBQs, and outdoor fun! 🍧🎆⚾

Thrift Store Shopping Thursday

These were my thrift store shopping finds once I got back from my trip to New Mexico. A woven wood picnic basket.  It’s in need of a makeover, so I have to decide what to do with it.

Thrift Store Thursday

I didn’t find very much at the thrift stores this week.  I don’t know if it was just because there wasn’t much to find or if I was being more selective.  I’m much more careful about bringing home things that I’m not sure if I’ll be able to use. I did find a few things though.
