Thrifty Things Friday #117


I showed you my new sofa the other day. I'm so excited about having a new look for my living room.  I've got a small decorating budget using some birthday money.  I know I don't have to do it all at once, but I would like to get a little style going!
This pillow has been my 'dream style' for awhile.  I bought this when Judy at 20 North Ora had it on sale in her Etsy shop.  I love it!  So when sofa shopping I had it in mind.
And it looks fabulous on the new sofa but of course I need more stuff!
Yesterday I popped into Hobby Lobby just to look!  Well LOOK what I found!  On clearance for 80% off!  WOW!   Makes it in my price range.
It has the wonderful french script, a beautiful red Eiffel Tower and of course it says Paris!
What's not to love, and only $20
I also found these pillows at Big Lots for 1/2 price! 
Two really cute pillows for $12 (that's only $6 each)!
It adds another touch of the red!

I am pretty happy with both items! 
Now to figure out what else to add to the wall with the painting.  I was thinking plate rack or something black and scrollie???  Ideas??
Of course whatever I find has to be thrifty! 

Be sure to hop over to Diann's and see what other thrifty things are happening today!

I'm also joining Jann at Share Your Cup

What great pillows! How about a black-framed mirror or even a big chalk board? Your plate rack idea is a good one, too...

Oh man, I am SO heading over to the Big Lots! The pillows were a score! Darling number script!

Diann said...

all your new thrifty treasures are wonderful Linda! You can't even buy the pillow forms let alone the fabric to make those pillows for that price anymore!

I would have your cousin take pictures of you in Paris - blow them up - print them in black and white and a touch of red - frame them. Of your wonderful smile in Paris. I am serious. sandie

Those are all great finds and look fabulous with your couch! I'm loving Big Lots right now. I went in a few months ago and got some galvanized buckets with burlap numbers on the front! Couldn't believe how on trend they are with their accessories!
