This Weeks Finds...Blogtoberfest Day 5

Plates for making cake stands....

and the score of the year....

an Art Deco light fitting for $25! We bought a 1930's brick bungalow at the start of the year and it has ugly, modern chandeliers in the dining room and lounge. They were top of my list to get rid of when we first moved in but I soon realized I needed something to replace them with and couldn't afford to buy anything like this from an antique shop, so I am now a very happy girl! All I have to do now is save up enough money for the electrician....

Pop on over to Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl to see what other people scored this week.
