Thrifty me...

My friend Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is having a thrifty/yard sale find blog party.

It was so difficult for me to chose a few items in my house because just about everything was thrifty, on sale, cheap, etc. I grew up very
poor so I will always be budget conscious...to my husband delight.

So here are a few of my favorite things....

Remember those cute ducks that keep me company while doing dishes? Well they were only $2.50 each at a local grocery store. I wish they had twelve more, I would have bought them all at that price.


And this plate from a close out store. It looks like gold and REAL expensive. $12.00! It's very sparkly in real life. ;-)
And my chess pieces. We love chess in our family. #1.00 each at a yard sale. Why oh why did this picture turn out blurry?

Anyway, I could go on and on with thrifty things in my house. But there are other blogs with thrifty finds. So, make sure you check them out.

I love your duckies. They look so sweet. As for your chess pieces, I love the way they look, but I would have no idea how to play with them. Looks great, though.

What cute ducks...I love every thing you shared with us.
Like you, my entire house is ON A BUDGET so it was hard to choose just one thing....

How fun. I've never been a garage saler, but recently the idea of going to thrifting is appealing. You have to check out my blog to see the chair I got garbage picking yesterday. It's awesome.

I just saw some chargers at Hobby Lobby like your plate you show. I thought they were so pretty...and I did an amazing thing...I walked on by! Now I am thinking, I may have to walk on by and pick one up!

Caren said...

Cool stuff! I went to thrift store today and found the CUTEST vase...a little too late for the thrift party though I'm afraid. I'll have to share it on my blog soon.

Have a great weekend!
