A few Keepers!

I'm joining Linda at Coastal Charm again this week for another great Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. Be sure to visit her at  http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com and then hop on over to the other Mr. Linky's so you can see all the goodies the other Nifty Thrifty folks got. 
Found this beautiful glass piece which is very heavy at a Thrift Store for $2.99. 
Another glass tea pitcher which is was so hard for me to pass up for $1.99 at the Thrift Store.
Cute butterfly basket for $1.00 at the Thrift Store.

And then I found this thingy-gingy! Is that even a word? I almost didn't get it but then it was only 50 cents! And I passed by it twice and it was one of those deals that I said, "Ok, it is still sitting there when I walk by again...for the 3rd time....I am getting it! Now isn't that just a great way to talk yourself into buying something or either talk yourself out of buying something????? But for 50 cents!!!!
Well, it was still there and it came home with me. Needless to say the ideas are really endless when using this. I have already thought how lovely a cake would look on top of it on a pretty cake plate with flowers at the bottom. Or...a nice bowl of salad sitting nestled on top. Or....or.....or.....

And you know things just ain't normal for me if I don't go by Walmart and to look on the clearance asle.....Found 6 of these plates on the clearance asle that had been marked down to $1 for each. Bought all 6! Love them.
And last but not least my gravy bowl with matching platter that matches my dishes....

My friend Paige that owns Three Palms Resale had this in her shop and as soon as I spied it, yep, just had to have it. I just posted a tablescape recently with my story on my dishes. You can see that here if you'd like http://creationsbycindyphotography.blogspot.com/2010/04/miss-lossies-tablescape.html
That is my goodies for the week.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment! I love the white plates ~ I recently found some white Crate & Barrel bowls ~ 2 for $1.00!!

  2. Cindy, you found some fantastic deals. I would have snatched all six plates at that price, too.

  3. Don't you just love thrift finds???? Great items you've listed for great prices.

  4. Nice finds. I never find stuff like this.

  5. I have a little thing for glass too, I keep buying, but no-where to put it all :)

  6. What great finds. Heck, I've bought dishes I don't even like at the time for that price. How can you pass them up? I'm on my way to Walmart as soon as I log off.

  7. Hey, that thingie for 50 cents shouts cake stand!!! ;)
    Country Blessings,

  9. Nice finds! It is hard for me to resist the crystal in thrift shops!


    P.S. - I'm a FL gal with an Alabama heart!

  10. Cindy,
    What awesome finds...love the white plates and the tea pitcher!


  11. Part of the fun of finding a deal is getting to share it with others! Thanks for sharing with us!

  12. great finds! you are an awesome bargain hunter!

  13. You really got some great stuff! You definitely had the junkin' mojo working for you. :-)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  14. What great finds!! I would love to find those plates for $1! Thanks for stopping by:-) Love your playlist too!

  15. Great finds. I'd want the thingy-gingy, too. I hope you'll post all the different things you do with it. I love that tea pitcher a lot, too. $2! Wow.

  16. I have white plate and pitcher envy! ;) I'm gonna have to check my walmart's clearance aisle. Someone else posted white dish finds on clearance there...grabbing my purse and running out the door....

  17. How do you find so many good deals? Guess that's why you have eye for things and I don't! I am the purse hunter...and still have problems finding the REAL THING for a small amount of money. Trinity

  18. I need that butterfly basket! Too cute Miss Cindy. Angela


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
