Finally, some frugal finds.

Everyday I listen as all you bloggers go to the thrift store and come out with these wonderful things. Well every time I go to the thrift store I come out with discouragement. I didn't find these at the thrift store but they were thrifty...
I got all these things for $9. Yes, $9 as in nine! I was thrilled. I just happened to have a coupon for this great store "Rod Works" it is one of my favorite places to frequent. Well enough of my elation. I love those little topiaries and I have a perfect spot for them.

I haven't loved this corner since I put the shelves up. I just gathered things from around the house to put on them and you know how that is, sometimes it just isn't great. So you keep looking at it and hoping you find something to make it better.
So here it is before...
Not terrible. But I do like it better with the green topiaries and without the old beer can we found in the dirt when we built our house...
Not a huge change but now when I look at it, I like it.
As for the other two item in my great find pile. The keys are a project I will have to have a little time for. They require wood, paint, sandpaper, and wire. I'll let you know when I get them done. And, for the iron scrolly thing, I have a spot for that, I think. I'll let you know on that too.
Have a great day.
