Thrifty finds this week

Lovely pillows, huh? I know you all are jealous.
They were clean and still very fluffy. I bought them to recover them with these striped napkins.
Much better!
These are for son Jimmy's apartment.

I almost always find a few things for grand baby Gavin.
Every little Oklahoma farm boy needs a pair of size 1 Wranglers - they still have the tags on them, I got them for $1!
Round House Overalls - also brand new

a few everyday play clothes - 25 cents each

Theo is not thrifty, but he is really sweet and he wants to tell you all hello.

Rhoda has a new blog address. She's still hosting her weekly thrifty party and you can see lots more thrifty purchases if you attend. Her new address is Southern Hospitality Blog


  1. The little Wranglers and overalls are too cute!!

  3. Hello, Theo!! Did you go thrifting this week too???

  4. What a cutie! Good makeover on those pillows! They look very Pottery Barn!

  6. You did good on the clothes, especially the new ones.

  7. You rescued those forsaken pillows. Glad you liked the pictures! I have no idea what people were thinking back in the 70's when such beastly things were made.

  8. Hi Rhonda !
    I love all the great finds for your grandson - he is one lucky little guy !
    I recently bought some sorry looking pillows for 50 cents each and will be re-covering them too. The new ones uncovered are pricey !
    Your pup is sweet - I bet he is spoiled like mine !

    I have a thing for little boys in overalls! All 4 of mine had lots of pairs...just adorable!
