Resale Shop Treasures

Is there something you are hooked on? Come and join in the Hooked on Friday's blog party and discover what other fellow bloggers are hooked on. Thrift stores are definitely something I am hooked on. A few weeks ago I posted HERE some of my thrift store treasures. I promised I would show you some of my creations using those treasures. Here are two plates that I picked up totaling $1.50. Can you believe it! I had the idea in my mind and who I was going to make it for. My friend Amy loves these colors, so I knew it would be perfect.
I also picked up a couple of tapered candlestick holders for .50 cents each.
A small sundae dish.... for .50 cents
I got out my favorite glue and My Creation was complete.
The entire project cost me $2.50 and makes a lovely gift, or make one for yourself. It is perfect to use for serving desserts or fruit and dip.
I hadn't seen Amy in a few weeks and I know she needed a pick-me-up, so what girl doesn't Love chocolate! I made some chocolate covered strawberries for the platter.
I arranged them on the tiered plate. With a decorative polka dot bow and a little card. My gift was complete and ready to give to my friend. It was so sweet, she posted about the gift
From My Heart ...HERE.

Next time you take a trip to the thrift store, stop by and look at all the plates and glassware. It's amazing what you can create for little cost when you think outside of the box! Wishing you a wonderful and creative Wednesday.

"A friend loves at all times."Proverbs 17:17

I need to remember to hit the thrift stores! I wish there were some closer so it wasn't such a big deal to drive there.

From another Sherri, I LOVE this gorgeous project. I have a little one up my sleeve but it is VERY tiny compared to yours! Everything came together and formed a beautiful 'gift' from the heart that is also inspiring to us all.

Sherry...I loved your gift. The best gift was getting to spend some time for a visit (too short). I have the tiered confection plate in the living room for now. I need another china cabinet...maybe we can find one at the thrift store : )

Love you,
Amy

Sherry, I wanted to let you know that I mentioned you on my blog post today. Because I also saw your cloche and made one of my very own too. Now I will be hunting items for this project. I would love giving them to my sisters for uncoming birthdays! Thank you again for sharing your inspirations.

I think with the economy the way it is a lot more folks are going to be heading to their local thrift stores, especially if they read about the great buys you got.
Great job!
