Trash to Treasure: Thrift shop pillows

Due to a head cold and being busy with other activities, I've let Trash to Treasure creep up on me! I haven't been to the Thrift Store or a garage sale in over a week!

So, I looked in my 'drafts' folder and found a post I started and didn't finish. Even though I've had these little treasures awhile, I thought would it would be appropriate to share today! I am so ready for a little warmer weather so I can enjoy my porch again!


This two little pillows were bought on the same day at the Hope Village Thrift Store. They both have a home on my screened porch on the wicker lounger. I really love the garden message on both of them! I think I paid one dollar each for the pillows.

I hope to continue adding to my porch when the weather gets warmer by shopping the Thrift Stores.

Please link your Trash to Treasure below so we can all visit you! Thanks for stopping by!

Diane, I love your little porch pillows, especially the one with the "Lovely are the hours" quote.

I'm sorry you've been suffering with a cold. They can really make you feel terrible all over.

Hope you feel better today!

Sincerely,

Janie

I like whimsical pillows with sweet sayings on them. They make life a bit more cheerful--even when you're down with a nasty cold. I hope that you'll soon feel better.

Cute pillows & the price was right.

I guess I've been confused about Trash to Treasure. I thought it had to be transformed...like Susan's Met Monday. And being a procrastinator, I don't have a whole lot of "finished" projects. Now I realize that pics showing how we have used thrift finds are eligible.

Heck, nearly everything in my house came from a thrift store...I could play on Trash to Treasure for a year. ;o)

Love your little pillows. I also love the green wicker lounger. How nice to have a screened porch. That would be such a blessing here in GA with our mosquito population.

I joined in w/Mr. Linky.

Happy Tuesday.
