Thrift and Dollar Store Finds

I got this cute jam jar
for $1.75!
The only marking on it is it
says Korea on the base

This I believe
is something for a pet
maybe a ferret?
I'm going to spray paint it
use it for jewelry

if anyone knows
what it is used for let me know***
I paid $1.50

I got this cup and saucer 
for $5


 I got the following at Dollar Tree
Each package was $1
I will be making baby cards

I'm not sure what I will be using these
envelopes for but 
I know it will come to me
Do you have any suggestions?

*** I found out it is a hamster play pen

  1. Love the jam jar and the teacup is stunning. You will find tons of uses for your other treasures. Great finds. Hugs, Marty

  2. Well, look at you! The great find lady, you did great!

    Thanks for sharing.


  3. Hi: What great finds. I love thrift store treasures. Your cup is stunning. Thanks for sharing, have a great week. Blessings, Martha

  4. I love the honey pot. Cute and thrifty! Always interesting stuff at the dollar store!

  5. Cute honey jar! Can't come up with anything for the fence. Maybe for a pet, but also maybe for the garden? I want to go treasue hunting but I'm trying to get rid of stuff Lol.

  6. Oh my goodness your honey jar is too cute! Love the colors in the tea cup too! You were right about the rainbow colored fence. We have rabbits and use something like it to let them have a little play time. That’s a fun idea to use it for your jewelry!

  7. Jo, I am enamored with the little honey pot! You are just so crafty, finding things at the $ store and turning them into artwork. See ya soon, Sue

  8. I love your honey pot and so all your finds. Hope to hit some garage sale this weekend too. Happy weekdays!

    2nd time around

  9. I like your jar its pretty. Happy 2nd time around...

  10. You are a good thrifty shopper. The hamster playpen is a hoot. Make cards for those envelopes. What pretty colors. The jar is for honey I think. Very cute.

    Happy thrifting.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  11. I have used those envelopes quite often on th efront of handmade cards and then I tuck money or gift cards or special notes on a tag inside. I teach middle school and also use them on my Vocabulary wall with the defintions tucked inside. Have fun with them!

  12. Jo, I LOVE the beehive. I have one very similar to it that I too scored at a sale. You got lots of great finds this week! Thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday!

  13. Great finds. You are making me think that I need a trip to Goodwill here very soon! Thanks!

  14. The honey pot is adorable! And that playpen thing is probably too shallow for a ferret. I know my two would be out of it in seconds (they're very stretchy). I'm guessing its for a hamster or mouse to run around on the grass outside. Or a rat. (Yes, rats make wonderful pets, LOL!)

  15. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that honey jar!! Great find!

    Stopping by from New Friend Friday!

  16. CUTE jam jar! I'm a sucker for bees and bugs on pottery.

  17. Had to tell you- I bought the same Hamster playpen yesterday at Vinnie's for 75 cents. They also did not have a clue what it was.
    I will use it around some flowers.
