First up for my thrifty treasures is a new wooden stool~love the chippy green paint. Looks like I have started a new collection-this joins another stool I bought a few months ago.

While in Chicago two weeks ago, a friend mentioned that she had something I might want to take home. When I visited her the next day, I knew right away this glass case would be mine. I never have enough display space for my miniature treasures, so this fit the bill and at $40 was affordable.

I found the small birdcage (for 50 cents!) almost a year ago and finally spray painted it black to turn it into a display feature for one of my Wee Forest Folk mice. As you can see, I have started my Halloween decorating...look forward to it every fall (beginning in August!). The creature to the right of the cage wasn't exactly thrifty, but it is so cute as another way to display a Halloween mouse and I couldn't resist him!

I had to share this ogre...who recently traveled home with me. As I said, I am obsessed with 'All Things HaLLoWeeN!' and he will adorn a special place in my home to celebrate spooky.

My last thrifty treasure is indeed that...both thrifty and a treasure~my darling husband, John. He does drive me crazy at times with his thriftiness but I find ways around him when I need to. We will celebrate our 38th anniversary this week...(Yowser-where did the time go?!)
