I should mention that I was inspired by Sunny at Life in Rehab on this project. She is a girl after my own heart. Amazing projects, full of inspiration and a ray of sunshine. GO VISIT HER, you will be glad you did.
I picked up a sequined skirt at the thrift store yesterday for $7.99. The lovely clerk said “there’s a top that goes with that” and quickly ran down the isle to go get it, before I had a chance to say anything. She brought back a hideous sequined black and gold top. Um, I didn’t want to break her heart, after all, she was being so helpful, but I had to tell her that I will only take the skirt as I am using it to make cushions. She took it in good stride and just said “oh”.
Then I picked up 4 placemats on sale for $10.
I picked up this bag of stuffing for a couple of bucks, with the original price written on the bag of $17.98, yikes.
Now I have a glam cushion. One down, three more to go.
My favourite party of the week is taking place at Southern Hospitality. I love a thrifty find and so do many others, so go and see what they have found or done with their thrifty finds.
