Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!

My thrifty finds this past weekend!

Picked up these beautiful paint by numbers at a garage sale.
I collect winter or western scenes.
I don't understand why anyone would get rid of these.  Someone spent a lot of time doing this.
Already in the booth at Art Angels!

I like this cute little table.  I think I will leave the tops natural wood and shabby the legs.

I think old wooden ironing boards are useful and cool looking, this one is very sturdy.

I'm always picking up old hangers, especially ones that have writing on them.

I like to find old hymnals.  They are great for craft projects or just framing great old songs.

A cute rusty old hanging scale and an old rusty shaving mirror.

And my favorite find of the week!!

Look at that perfect rust!!!

Cute little foot!
When I paid for it the woman said....looks like your going to be doing some sandblasting and painting...I don't think so!!
Well that's it for today.
Don't forget to hop over to visit Linda at Coastal Charm and visit all the amazing links!!
It's so fun!!
Enjoy this day!

What a fun day! Awesome finds! And I love me some rust! I found an old mason jar in my hubby's shop with a rusty metal ring around it - LOVE.
He thinks I'm nuts but that is okay as long as I have my bloggy rust loving friends to share with :)

Love those paint by numbers. I feel bad because I'm trying not to buy stuff since I'm purging. I have to resist but I live vicariously thru u!

Did you find the two tiered table painted or did you paint it cuz it's sure pretty as is.

Awesome treasures...

Years ago, like 30 or more, I saw an old wooden ironing board set up as a bar. I've been looking for a board AND room to put one ever since.

I stayed here a bit longer just to drool over your lucky finds--what will you do with that wooden ironing board? I have one and not sure what I can do to repurpose it. Love all your treasures!
