Thrifty Thursday #80

     While out shopping for school supplies and groceries, I fit in a little bit of "Laura Fun." Shocker, "Laura Fun" involves stopping at thrift stores. Boy, am I glad I did because look what I found. . .
I got all these blocks for fifty cents! My favorites are the +, ?, and division sign!
I'll be on the hunt for something to do with these. . . I'm thinking of putting them in a glass jar. Wouldn't that be cute in a nursery?
These wooden letters were a quarter each.
I'm planning to make an alphabet wall like I've seen on Pinterest. I've got about six letters so far.

These old bookends were fifty cents. I'm going to re-cover them. Can't wait!

I never pass up a cheap embroidery hoop- this one was a quarter.

I love this wooden bangle. I am going to re-cover it- perhaps with map strips or old pattern pieces.
It has two rough areas on it that somebody had somehow refinished so I decided to bargain with the thrift store gal. She wanted a dollar for it, but I got it for fifty cents. Woo- hoo!
Best of luck to you as you go bargain hunting this weekend! Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
O Lord, how great are Your works!

Great finds. I especially like those blocks and the idea of covering the bracelet.

I saw someone make knobs out of blocks for the bureau in their child's bedroom, very cute!

You can tell the blocks age because of the ridges on the sides, they are great.
