our cheap thrills journey begins in the thrift stores of solvang. i spotted these cotton scraps all bundled up together and grabbed them immediately. of course my favorite print is the one covered in cute little farm animals - pigs, chickens, cows... how could i resist. they will definitely be finding a home in a patchwork quilt in the future. i also picked up an embroidered hankie (which i'm starting to collect... another collection).

the rummage sale/bazaar at the retirement home was something else, they were practically giving stuff away. came away with a wine crate, frying basket, the tiniest hand painted egg cup, heart cake pans, and a little tin for a whopping $1.25... you almost felt guilty walking away with it! they assured us that they just wanted to get rid of it.

and lastly, the antique street fair that goes on once a month. we visited our favorite ladies' booths and came away with something from all of them. i found an old grain sack, a meat thermometer, a teaspoon, some large wooden salad servers, and a couple of other goodies. i cannot pass up the $1 tables, they just make me so happy inside.

oh, the plans i have for these treasures... what have you been thrifting lately?
