Yesterday, I whined about what I didn't buy, so today I'm going to show you what I did buy.
I see wooden tool carriers all the time, but have been holding out for just the right one. And then I saw this metal one with chipped green paint on it and fell in love. And it came with a pumpkin and hay (straw?) already, so I had to buy it.
It's actually quite large. 18 inches long, 10 inches wide and 8 inches tall. Plus the green is sort of Christmasy and we all know that that season is lurking just around the corner.
My other purchase was this Cosco step stool/chair that I bought at Urban Farmhouse's booth at the show.
I saw it within two minutes of walking into the show, but didn't want to jump right on it. I hadn't had a chance to see what the other vendors had to offer yet.
But this little step stool/chair thing was in the back of my mind all the time I was looking at other stuff, so I'm glad she was still sitting there when I returned an hour later.
If you'll remember, I was coveting Robin's from Happy at Home the other day in my post about Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest , so I took it as a sign from the thrifting spirits that I had to buy this.
So, out of the entire show, with a zillion great finds to be found, I only bought two items. I guess I am practicing restraint nowadays. That, and I didn't buy my buckets. But I won't go all bucket funky on you again.
I am linking with Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm. Go on over to Linda's to check out some more thrifty finds and ideas. Also linking with Thrifty Thursday at Tales From Bloggeritaville, Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage, Time Travel Thursday at The Brambleberry Cottage.
