Thrifty Thursday #171

The other day my mom called to see if I was home.
She said that my dad had found something in the trash that I might like.
I was anxious to see what they were bringing.


Imagine my surprise and delight when my dad pulled this out of the back of his truck!
Who on earth would just throw this old school desk away?


It's in great shape.
I just had to wipe it down with some soapy water, then find a perfect place for it in my living room.


Another day while out riding my bike, I happened across another roadside find.


This old suitcase.
Cute, huh?

It probably looked like I was running away from home
as I rode with it laying across my handlebars:)


The inside needs a little work, but I can't complain about the price!

I love Thrifty Thursdays--- I especially love them when I get the stuff for free!

I hope you happen across a roadside gem this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Casting all your care upon Him, 
for He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7

Wow! Who would put something like that in the trash? So happy to hear that your dad rescued it. Love the roadside find suitcase too. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

I have a very similar desk that I found at a yard sale years ago. I have yet to do anything with it...just need some inspiration! Have a great day. :)

My sister and I each had little desks like this when we were kids...still have it and love it. Great find! Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty - we love partying with you! Hope to see you next Friday. :)
