Thrift Store Finds

On Wednesday I had a breakfast with my mom and we went thrift store shopping.
I love thrift store shopping and hadn't been in a while.
It's one of my favorite things to do with my mom.
I was particularly looking for a little lamp for the guest bedroom but I ended up finding other
goodies for the guest bedroom:
Let's break it down: I found these cute little mason jars for $1/ea

They are both sitting on my kitchen window sill at the moment and I am not sure
if I will fill them with something yet or not.
I love how Kimberley from Restoration House filled her jars:
I'm not sure if my new kitchen can pull that look off. 
It's more for a white beach, cottage style kitchen and my kitchen
is no longer white. I love white kitchens and looking at so many
beautiful white kitchen makeovers makes me want to paint mine white again but I'm
sure my husband will have a heart attack if I even ask him since staining our new
kitchen cabinets was a major expense. 

Anywho... I also found these IKEA MALMA Mirrors for just $.99/ea
I know they are not super expensive new at IKEA since they are $2.99/ea
 but I saved $6 buying three at a thrift store.
I painted them white and I love how they turned out! 
These will go in our guest bedroom.
And My Favorite find was this awesome ruffle throw for $3.99
In this same store I found a white bedskirt for $2.99 
and a white frame, which will replace the 
old one I used for my Art Printable, which was $.99.
All three of these lovelies will be part of the guest bedroom re-do.
I'm so happy with my finds! I just finished painting the bedside table for the guest room
all that is left to paint are the bed posts. What do you think of my finds? 
Have you been thrift store shopping lately?
What goodies have you found?

Oh by the way I didn't make Vintage Revivals's Top 15 :( bummer!
but thank you very much for those who voted for me!! I don't feel like a loser! lol
But now I have to come up with something fabulous to do with my
living room on my own.... maybe next year! lol 
I have a long list of things to do!

Also I don't know if you have noticed some changes, design wise, in my blog?
I've been making it pretty little by little and I think I finally got it!
it's the only pretty in pink space I have since I can't paint my own bedroom pink.
I used my favorite colors pink, gray, white and black! :)
