Thrift Store Finds

Hi All! I wanted to share some of my Thrift Store Finds.
If you have been on my Facebook page, you have already seen them. ;)

Speaking of my Facebook page, I would love if you popped over there and liked my page. Please and thank you. Just click HERE to like my page.

And if you know how to add a Facebook like box to the sidebar, I would love your help. I cannot get it to work for me. :( Thanks.

...Ok on to my awesome finds...

I went thrift shopping with my Mom and cousin Connie today! We all found some pretty cool stuff.

Pink Birdies-Wall Decor
These two cute lil birds will be so cute on the wall in my lil girls room! They have openings on the back to hang on the wall. I think they would be cute next to a painted tree on their wall. Now I just have to paint a tree on the wall. ;)
Full Bed
This bed was a great find. A full bed for my lil girls room. I plan on painting it to match their room. The paint is orange and pink. They both wanted to choose a color. So 2 walls will be pink and 2 will be orange. Both colors match their bedding perfectly which makes buying a full bed a little concerning. I don't want to change the bedding. So if you have an idea on how to easily make 2 twin quilts into 1, please share.
Here is the bed.
Game Table
I found this cool table that will make a great game table for the kids playroom. It is a little loose, but luckily hubby is a contractor and woodworker. He will be able to fix it up. Then I will paint it. I like that we will be able to store games below while they can play on the table top above.
This old globe was perfect for my sons room. But after posting it on facebook, I have a new idea for it. ;) Thanks Girl in Air. Check out what she did with her globe! It is so cool. I am definitely painting mine!
Books, Books, Books
I found a complete set of the Young Student Learning Library. Out dated but still fun for the kids. I also found some Child Craft books. Thought they would be fun to go through. 
Oh and I even picked up a couple Golden Books. I am collecting them for a fun project for the kids. Coming soon!
School Desk
I have a couple of these desks but this one was the best bargain so far. I found this one for only $10. The last one I found was $50. This desk is in great shape and only needed to be cleaned up. I may add my own fun touches, but not sure yet. For now I like it the way it is.
Sorry for the bad lighting on this pic. :(
Milk Glass
At the first thrift store I found a beautiful milk glass dish on the left of the photo. This is my first milk glass purchase and I LOVE it. After lunch we came across another thrift store that was not open yet. They had moved shops and were setting up. They were sweet enough to let us in to browse. That is where I found that big vase in the center of the photo. ;) At our last stop I found a milk glass vase for $1. And after I loaded my things in the car I went back in, my mom had found more. So we picked some and I got a few more. All pictured on the right. I have officially started my milk glass collection. I can't wait to display them.
Wooden Balloon Decor
Lastly, I found something super cute for a birthday party. Someone had made lil wooden balloons with faces painted on them. They were at the thrift store for $.50 each. $3 in all. I plan on making a birthday wreath with these and displaying the balloons in 3's. Aren't they cute!?! We just had a birthday here, but have another coming up in a couple weeks, so this will be done immediately.
