Thrifting weekend

Hello to my fellow thrifters.  Last weekend was a beautiful weekend for thrifting

I had a dog bed project in mind when I went out this weekend for my BIG GUEST BLOG DEBUT (see here), and on Saturday I hit up the local Good Will and found the following items

so yes 1 thing for the project – the gray curtain will be the cover for Coco’s new bed
and do you see the wreath cant wait to make that over
the cup is for Uncle Jimmy it says “It’s good luck to buy drinks for the Irish” and I need all the luck I can get lol although he is Irish he no longer drinks due to his health so i figured he could use for his coffee (cause he is totally hooked on that lol).

Then on Sunday I got a call from Ja of JCostaphotography asking to go out thrifting and off we went to a thrift store in our area called UNIQUE and there I hit the mother load lol (at least for the CoCo bed project & some future project I already had in mind too yay!!) double YAY!!

So here’s what I found (now remember this is the before the after is yet to come)
