It's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!!!

Oh I love me a deal....and Linda at Coastal Charm http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com 
always gets a deal! Go check her out and the other lovely ladies that post about their nifty thrifty deals! I will begin by sharing my cute little garden clock.....the cutest for $1.
 Oh my friend Sharyl over at http://thelittlebrownhouse.us/ is going to want my clock! She loves her some clocks! Matter of fact it is her fault I can't even walk into a Thrift store without looking  at the clocks! 

Then I found this cute little bowl for 99 cents. Now, I realize it doesn't look much but you just wait till I slap a glass candle stick underneath it with my liquid nail! 
I really love this wire basket. It was $1.99 and I almost did not buy it. But I loved the detail on it and my first thought was this would be such a cute gift with all sorts of goodies inside!
I thought this little vase was just a cutie for 50 cents. 
Found this silver 3-plate snacky thing and knew I had to have it for $1.99.
Found some more white plates. Got them for $1 each. But as so many of you have said, "You can't go wrong with white plates". I have a friend that says that about black pants. She says if you have at least one pair of black pants you are good to go! Well, if you have a few white dishes....anything goes! 
I wish I could have found more like this because I do like that basket weave pattern. 
This glass platter is one of my favorite patterns. I have a lot of this type pattern dishes. Have no clue what the real name of this is and if you know please share with me....but I have always called it the Star of David dishes...Just looks like that to me. But love this pattern. Found this lovely platter for $5.
And do I ever love me some snack plates. I have tons of them...This particular pattern I had a small set of and gave away as a gift a few years ago. Just happen to see 7 of these white milk glass snack plates for $2 each and I knew I might as well get them cause I would be mad at myself If I didn't. Ha! The cups I bought to use with them were 50 cents each. Now they aren't the cups that really go with this but....they matched pretty dad-burn good to me! 
7 plates and 7 cups! 

Don;t you just love these lovely napkins? 12 in pack for $3.

And on my way home decided to stop at Bealls Outlet....Found these adorable rose shower curtain rings on the clearance aisle. They were $6.99 and got them for $3.50. 

And my intentions aren't using them for a shower curtain.....I am going to use them for napkins rings! Love them!
I hope you have enjoyed your Tuesday with me. Be sure to go by and visit Linda over at Coastal Charm. She is such a delightful and a sweet lady. http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com
