    This Bee thingy is going to be attached to the lattice piece that covers Randy's office window.

    New planter and a piece of trim for something.

    Some cuties to find places for.

    I just couldn't resist this one, it is now hanging out on the front porch area so we can watch it twirl in the breeze. I have not idea what it is or originally used as.

    Don't have any idea what this is but it will become part of the insect hotel I am making in the backyard.

    This is only about 22 inches tall, the roof lifts up
    and will be used as a trash can in the bathroom we are re-doing.

    Gosh so many goodies!! I love the planter and the bee thing and that little cupboard would fit in nicely in my bathroom. I could easily find a home for the trim too. :)

    More fantastic finds! I could find a nice place for all of them...at my house! I like each and every one of them.

    Thanks all.
    Zuzu thanks for IDing that white thingy for me. I don't shop an IKEA any more so I hadn't seen it there.

    I got lucky with that store this time, most of the time there is nothing there I have an interest in and usually come home empty handed. And that hurts the feelings of a junquer.

    Wow Toni those are great finds. You could also use the cute outhouse for hiding extra toilet paper in. Your a gal after my own heart.
    I love going to Goodwill, and resale shops in my area to find treasures like yours. I can't wait until we can go to yard-sales and estate sales. Fun, fun, fun!

    Well, this doesn't compare to Toni's finds, but I stopped by our local thrift store to donate a few items and some bags, and I found a 6 qt. slow cooker, still in the sealed box for $3.00! I don't need another slow cooker, but I examined the box carefully and it had never been opened, so I figured for that price I could take a gamble. When I got it home and opened the box the styrofoam packing was still in place, the manual and warranty were there, and it was a gorgeous red color!
    I have a friend who does a lot of cooking for a senior citizen center and she may be able to use it. If not, I'll find someone who can use it.

    That is in a whole 'nuther level of great thrift store finds!!!! Good work, someone cooking for a group can always use an additional slow cooker.
