I shopped quickly...very quickly. This is my haul!
Terrycloth queen bedspread...$15
White/pink flower shawl...$3
Glass canister set...$6 (BEFORE)
Flag metal water bucket...$3
Two frames...$1.50

Love the detail on the frames. Plan on painting white and distressing a little or a Robin's Egg Blue.

I decoupaged the wooden part and plan on using
this in my classroom to hold prizes.

Not too bad for a quick...and SwEaTy...shopping spree!
