Admittedly I've been a busy bee lately, but I haven't let it keep me from my appointed thrifty rounds. But before we get into the treasures for this week, I wanted to thank everyone who participated in my There Goes the Galaxy book giveaway last week.
Folks can see the winners here: http://www.cabbagesnkings.net/2011/09/cabbages-there-goes-galaxy-book.html
And if you're still interested in getting your hands on a copy of the book in either paperback or ebook version, you can do that here: http://www.amazon.com/There-Goes-Galaxy-Jenn-Thorson/dp/0983804508
Okay-- that done, on to the thrifty fun! My first purchase of the week was this excellent little vintage Pyrex refrigerator container in blue... for one whopping buck.
But my second and favorite find of the week was actually spotted by my shopping buddy Scoobie, who recognized these early 1900s cast iron curtain tie backs....
...And recognized them as similar to these terrific curtain rods from the same era she had gotten me...
I haven't been able to find vintage hardware that would work with them. But I am open to ideas. They're lovely and will really work perfectly in my red and green arts-and-crafts influenced livingroom.
Anyway, that's this week's Treasure Box coming to a close. Hope this week is treating you well so far!
