Small treasures

It's nothing earth shattering, but I found lots of little treasures over the weekend. I am on the search for two large (real wood) bookcases, but everything I saw this weekend was particle board.
Anyhoo-I've been on the search for little items to redecorate the guest bathroom when all the demolition is repaired. I love these two mirrors below. They will probably get a coat of spray paint. They were marked 1.99 each at GW but I got them both for 1.99.

I love this basket at a garage sale for 50 cents. Perfect for holding some beautifully wrapped soaps or some handtowels.
Perfect shelf for the bathroom, just the right size. It will definitely need some new paint though. It was a GW find for 3.99.

I found this planter at GW for only 99 cents. Isn't it cute? It looks like a white picket fence to me. I just happened to have a plant that fit in there perfectly.

Books for only 50 cents each at a garage sale. I forgot to take pictures but I also got the boys 3 shirts each, all brand name and in great condition for $1 each. Preparing for some back-to-school clothes. I also found myself a really cute pair of Old Navy wedges for $1, the tags were still on!

Oh yeah...remember this mirror?

I gave it a coat of aqua spray paint and it's hanging in the Master Bedroom. Maybe one day I'll show you the whole room.
I allowed myself $20 to spend and had just enough left over for a caramel frappicino. Yahoo!
Go to Rhoda's to see what everyone else scored.
Happy Monday!:)
