Mirrors and Candlesticks... Oh my!

That title seems kinda... well take it as you will. lol

I told you all in my Tickled Pink post that I would share what I bought there later and today's later.

I got these adorable little green glass candlesticks. I love the color of them.
They were $1.50 I believe maybe less.

I also bought these taller blue glass candlesticks.
I think these were $1.99.
I can't remember.

Then I bought this blue glass bowl.
This was $2.

I got this mirror with plans to use it in my frame collage in our bedroom.
This was $2 as well.

And this is the last thing I purchased that day and I believe my favorite.
I randomly picked it up and wasn't sure about it at first. I didn't take a picture of the back but it is faded crushed velvet and looks rather old. We both got pretty excited about it then and I know it will look fabulous in a new color. It may end up in our bedroom or some other place in the house. I haven't decided.
It was $4.

I planned to make cake stands and candy bowls with the candlesticks and Travis put them all together for me this weekend while I was baking. So I will take a picture of what they look like now and share that soon.

Have you been thrifting recently and found anything cool?!
