thrifty finds

I absolutely love going to yard sales and thrift stores. I remember going to yard sales with my mom, years ago and I really miss her being gone. But the tradition has continued, my daughters seek them out and sometimes I can drag my son along, but not very often. I found this adorable shelf for $5.00, its white and it may end up black. These little bowls were 50cents each and are perfect for the bathroom. One had cotton balls in it and the other nail clippers and it fits perfectly in the shelf. I'm not sure what the two holes in the shelf are for? The cotton balls bowl looks like there's something brown on it and I don't know why, there is nothing there, must be a reflection. My best find was this towel rack. It was at the SA and I've been eyeballing it for some time. It was $45, then $35 and while I liked it, I didn't like it THAT much. Last time I went and it was down to $5.00!! SCORE!!! It is slanted and rubber protectors on the part that leans up against the wall, has 3 rungs and 2 shelves. My original plan was to paint it black and use it to display quilts. Then I realized I didn't really have room for it until I get some other projects done, so of course its in the bathroom with towels on it. I found more but I'm saving them for next week. So come back and visit. Well darn it all, I deleted the towel rack pictures, why did I do that? Guess I'll take some tomorrow and post then then.
