Restyled Sundays #6

I totally should have started this party this morning, but we had a big triple birthday party to get ready for today. My dad turned 89 on Thursday, and my son and I had birthdays two weeks ago. We had the rest of the family over today to celebrate. I have decided that having company (even family) over is the only way I really get my house in order, so I cleaned all day before they got here. They just went home and I finally have time to sit down and write this post.

I am so excited because I got a Canon DSLR camera for my birthday. I chose the Canon because everyone told me it is so user friendly, and Sam's Club is having a great special package deal on it right now. I had no idea how much I would need to learn, so bear with me as I figure out how to use it. I am going to share some of my first pics, please don't judge :}

I did not do a lot of thrifting this week, but we did go to the grand opening of the new Salvation Army Superstore near us and found a few goodies. Here are a few of them.
These lighthouse plates by Oneida are part of the David Carter Brown Collection.
I just loved them (as I do love lighthouses) and will be keeping my eye open for more of these.
This sweet terra cotta pot with little roses along the edge.
And a Styrofoam topiary set for $1.00, what a deal.
A couple of great yardsticks to add to my collection.
This adorable owl wall hanging just seems to draw you in!

A mink headband! How fun is that for a special winter hairdo?

I guess for not shopping much, I did pretty well!

I really enjoyed seeing the great finds and restyled projects that you shared with us last week.
