Second Time Around - March 31

I'm double posting today. I'll start with 2nd Time Around Tuesday. Diane from A Picture is worth a thousand words is hosting this event. Click on her link to check out the other treasures. This is the loot from my last thrifting trip. My favorite thrift store has everything half price on the last Wednesday of the month. I have been taking vacation time off work to go thrifting.


I found his bird cage just like you see it here with the pretty little purple silk flowers. The candle in the beautiful cut glass holder has a wonderful fragrance.


I think I will hang the birdcage outside on my porch this summer.

The two tall candle sticks had an ugly crazy design painted on them. A clean simple white looks a lot better. Thank you bloggers, for helping me see things as they could be.


Keep on reading my second post below. It is a darling idea to trick your little ones on April Fools Day.

Just found your blog... the "Nittany" part grabbed my attention. I am also from Central Penna. I thought I was the only person in Central Pa that doesn't do the dark country colors! :)
