Thrifted Bargains....

One couch cushion minus the couch.....$1.50

4 Throw Pillows.....$2.00

Close - up of pillow appliques..last week there were two other long pillows that went with them....I didn't act fast enough....and if I did, I wouldn't have been able to get them for 1/2 off!

Close up of rocking chair cushion...really a couch

Now, hopefully I can keep the neighbor's dog from

stealing my pillows! I'm also looking for just the right

throw for the back of the swing.

Those are great pillows! Those blue ones remind of ones that should be around a pool :0).
I never thought of grabbing old couch cushions but that is such a great idea. I know our local thrift store has tons and since I'd be using them outside, it would really be a good option. Thanks for the idea.
Enjoy your weekend!

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. you asked about the cork bulletin board I made. I used an old frame and
attached a piece of wood to the back of it. Then I glued the corks right to the wood. I'll have pictures and directions on my web page soon.

What agreat idea to use a couch cushion - I'm sure it will hold up and last so much longer than the tie on ones!
