WAIT FOR IT!!! Thrifty Thursday...



Today is Thrifty Thursday, a weekly event over at Leigh's. Click on the link below if you want to go see and hear more about how to get just about everything you want or need by shopping thrift and resale! LOTS of treasure hunting going on over there.

My post today is simply a proof by photo that if you love to collect a certain something... that if you WAIT FOR IT, it will come to you, slowly but surely, over time. Being patient and keeping your eyes peeled, you will find very very inexpensive deals on your special "somethings."
All of the following bunny figures or images were collected over years. Some look like they might have come together as a pair, but NO...all were found at different times in different locations. Thanks for visiting! It's always fun to share and encourage others to shop thrifty!





**a little note: this is like another tole tray below, but it is in shades of blue, so I grabbed it for the Living room.

Such nice thrifty finds, Julie! You have such a neat way of displaying things. I'm understanding from viewing your "finds" that the best thing to do is to have a "plan" of what I want to collect and then patiently watch for things that fit into my "plan".

Hi! came here from Rue's blog. Don't we love our collections?! Another thing about collecting, when your family and friends find out what you collect they are GLAD to give you that particular thing!! Makes it easy to buy for you! HA!

I read your comment over at Rue's it made me so sad.

Exactly. I love a look that's collected over years and doesn't just follow the current trends. It's so much more interesting and really has personality. I so love your trays!
