My thrifty finds for this week:
I got this chandelier at a yard sale for $5 - it has never been use!
I plan on redoing the rooms upstairs and it'll be perfect up there
I got the following 2 hanging baskets for $4 at Goodwill:

I plan on taking all the ribbons and hanging beads.
I'm not sure if I will be spray painting them or not
Or which room they'll reside in - at first I thought the kitchen then thought my craft room
so I guess I'll have to wait and see where the mood strikes me
The following items I got a various places:
The white cups I got for .59 at Goodwill.
I will be using them to measure bath salts out of containers I have
The incense burner I got at a local boutique called Homemade Uniques for $5
They sell homemade crafts, people can rent spaces to sell their crafts
The ceramic pumpkins I bought for $1 a piece at Dollar Tree
