Thrifty Treasures

Happy Thursday everyone! This week kicks off my first Thrifty Treasures post! I hope I can keep it up every week!

Thrifting and antiquing is by far my favorite thing to do! Our house is full of special finds, especially from Goodwill!

My Coffee/Tea Bar:

My husband and I are big coffee drinkers, so I decided to make a little area for just that. Looking at this picture can you pick out some thrifty treasures I have found? 

There are a total of 7 items

3 cobalt blue bottles - Goodwill in McKinney, TX
White sugar bowl and creamer - Goodwill in Tampa, FL
Yellow sugar bowl with spoon (for Jon’s creamer) - Goodwill in Denton, TX
White canister with tan lid (there are 2 more on the counter for flour and sugar) – Goodwill in McKinney, TX (I have coffee in this one and soon I will be painting the top and adding some chalkboard labels)
Rack- is actually used to hang your towels on but my husband has always used it to hang his coffee mugs. He honestly can't remember where he found it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and go check out a Goodwill weekend! You never know what treasures you may find!



  1. Love goodwill! Just found some gorgeous wine glasses with blue stems. Thrift store treasures are the best :)

  2. Absolutely love it. I need to go thrifting!

  3. I got the scarf you sent today. I LOVE IT! You managed to combine paisley AND stripes. Thank you, Kristen :)

  4. Coffee is one of my daily pleasures too - it's a nice idea to set up a dedicated area. And gosh how lovely your coffee corner looks! Good finds too!

  5. Great finds! I love Good Will too... I love to bring something great home and make my husband guess what it cost (I'm a loser).

  6. I love going to thrift stores! Your blog is cute! I love it!

  7. This reminds me...I need to get back into thrifting!

  8. I love thrifting and reading your thrift posts just about as much as I love you! :) Okay, no, just kidding, I love YOU a lot more! But for real... We need to go thrifting together! :) PRONTO!
