Thrifty Thursday

I am so excited about joining in on a new party!! Leigh over at Tales From Bloggeritaville is so sweet to host it! Thanks bunches for that!! They are so much fun, you meet tons of new girls and see so many great ideas. Be sure to check all the other blogs out and see what great finds they found!!



Saturday morning, me, my mom and dad hit the yard sales. I have lots of great things. This is one of my favorites. I could not believe my eyes. It looked as if it had never been out of the bag. It has a comforter and 2 shams. I can not wait to use it in our bedroom this Fall. Sometimes I dread asking a price cause on some thing.......people are just to high. That is kinda the way I felt here.............I asked and she said $15.....you never give asking price......so I asked her if she would take $10 ....SOLD TO ME!! It still had the sale sticker on the bag of $50.00 and she said she never used it. I was so excited


One house we stopped at had some really good decor items. My sis-n-law had been looking for a paticular mirror and we found her one for $3.00. She loved it!! I also go these book ends which I LOVE for $2.00.


Sophie Clare and I hit the thrift stores last week and found a few things. One of my faves was this Old Navy dress for $4.50 and the shoes were $2.79. I just loved it.


I picked these up for a BIG 56 cents a piece. I am going to paint them both white.

Well there you have my great finds!
I can not wait to see what you all have found!!
