Thrifty Christmas Finds
Dearest family...that's all for you today. Stop reading lest you wish to spoil your Christmas surprises. I know it's difficult, but find another blog to read...RIGHT NOW! ;o)
I'm pretty sure my family has not been heeding my wishes. In an effort to control the surprises, I'm not showing all my thrifty finds today. Until I can see my sisters and Mom up close (yeah, I'm talking about you nosy three!) and get them to pinky-swear, I cannot possibly show you all my fabulous thrifty finds from this weekend.
Here's one of my absolute favorites. I had no one in mind when I purchase these sweet little owl trivets. Well, maybe I had 'me' in mind. :o)
These are about 4 inches tall and made of metal. I saw several people looking at them, picking them up, and setting them back down. Know why? They have just a bit of rust on them. Do I care? Absolutely not!
These will take all of 2 minutes in the Sandblaster to remove the rust, and get them ready for painting. What color do you think I should paint them? Black? Red? Turquoise? Would you like to see a tutorial on Sandblasting? Leave me a comment if you wish to see the process. :o) I'm thrilled with these little owls. The best part...they were only a quarter!
