{Just a Thrifting, Partying and Feasting}

There's a little girl
In the neighborhood
Her name is Cindy Conner
And her thriftings looking good....

Now I will be singing the John Anderson song, "Just a swinging" the rest of the day. LOL! 


It's been a while since I have been thrifting and decided to do a little. So glad I did. I found the cutest little snack plates with matching cups.


A service for 8 matter of fact and for $16. YES, you read correctly. 16 bucks for a service for 8 and not a chip one on any piece. MY KIND OF THRIFING! I know thrifting isn't a real word. But it's my word now cause I made it up! LOL!


Then I found these cute snack plates too. I have these exact ones. Matter of fact I have several different patterns of snack plates. They didn't have the cups to match but I also have tons of little clear cups that I can use. 


They had 8 of these plates for a total of $2.99. Not $2.99 each...but all 8 for $2.99! Girls, I cannot pass up a deal like this.I have tons of snack plates. Matter of fact I am not going to sat how many cause then you will really know the depth of my "Dishaholic" problems! My man told me that I DID NOT NEED ANOTHER DISH! But, I never said I NEEDED them! I WANTED them! 


Found this cute vase for 99 cents. I call it the thumb print vase as the design looks like thumb print indention's. 


Remember this pretty corning ware pattern? Some of you may still have some of these dishes. I had several pieces but over the years they have gotten broken. It was just too cute to pass up. So, for a $1.99 it came home with me too. I felt I done really good with my thrift store goodies and money wise too.


My 13 year old granddaughter made her first homemade apple pie. Didn't she do a great job?  


A group of us ladies had a girls night out and enjoyed a comedy starring Chonda Pierce. We had pizza, popcorn, candy, drinks, games and prizes. I don't know when I have laughed as hard or so much. 


We had the best time. Laughter is indeed the best medicine. 





Everyone wanted a door prize to say the least!


Our photo booth with props was the hit! 


There is nothing any sweeter than your sisters in Christ.  


I had the opportunity to have "Thanksgiving Feast"with this cutie at school.


It's been a busy week but a good one. Thanksgiving is this week and with that I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy your family and your friends. Remember to thank the Lord for His many blessings. We deserve nothing but yet we are so very blessed. 

See you after Thanksgiving. 
 
 Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Cindy, You are as cute as the little cutie you had a day with at school. I loved your thrifting....it sounds more like a proper word than physicality. What?? A word I have heard a lot of lately. LOL. Once a waitress asked what my husband and I had been doing one day...we said
    sale-ing....she says oh I would love to be on the water...we said "No, yard sale-ing." LOL. Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving, xoxo, Susie

  3. There's nothing like the thrill of scoring a bargain. You scored great finds at your thrifting, Cindy. I think we may need to set up an online support group for our dish/china addiction! The other day, I was mentally tallying up my teacups...and stopped counting when I realized that I was going to surpass triple digits. HA! Your ladies' movie night out looks like a blast and your granddaughter is too cute. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Addiction is probably an understatement dear Margie when it comes to dishes. I love them! I am afraid to even count! LOL! Yes our movie night was so much fun. It is truly good to laugh. Happy Thanksgiving to you Margie.

I know you enjoyed your Thanksgiving feast with that cutie and that pie, oh my! I can't even make a pie that looks that good. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    1. Yes, Chonda is a hoot. We had fun. That pie baker is my little baker in the family. She isn't afraid to try anything. I just love it that she enjoys it. I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving day. Looks like we are expecting 90% chance of rain that day. But...it won't stop Thanksgiving.

  7. I LOVE all of your great "thifting" items, Cindy...but I'm sorry to break this news to you...I don't think you made the word up, LOL! It is something I love doing as well and you are right about not "needing" those things, but WANTING them, right? Your sweet little grand did a fabulous job on her pie and I bet it tasted just as delicious as it looked. You ladies certainly went all out on your Girl's Night Out event! I am SOO stealing some of your prop ideas...that is if you don't mind. You are right...there is nothing like getting together with our "Sistas". I pray you and your family have a BLESSED Thanksgiving! ♥♥♥

  11. Oh, sweet friend! It is always such a delight to visit with you here!! You are such a blessing and bright spot for us all! I LOVE your wonderful finds that you uncovered while thrifting! I take a notion to do that now and then, although, we are in such a downsizing, minimizing mode, I find that it gives me more pleasure to do that nowadays, than to acquire more stuff. I guess it is just seasons of life that we go through. It looks like you and your sweet sisters in Christ had an amazing time that night! And, that sweet, little one that you got to have lunch with is just precious! So happy things are well with you, and I trust God will give you and your dear family an amazing Thanksgiving Day together!!!

  12. Well, thanks for the song stuck in MY head now, too! ha, ha. I grew up on that song. :)

    So funny that you posted about dishes. We are also having "dish" talk, but ours is the exact opposite. Because of the screwy way our lives were thrown together, we never had a chance to buy household items, never had a wedding reception, etc. It never bothered or occurred to us until we started having people over for Bible studies...we have NO glasses and only 6 bowls! ha, ha. There's a lot of other "missing" items, too, but how did we never miss owning some glasses, for Pete's sake! Just my funny spin on your story.

    That pie looks delicious. She did a great job. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

    1. Thanks lady. We did have a great Thanksgiving. I have been too busy to even post or browse. I do hope that you had a great Thanksgiving too.

  13. WHAT? Thrifting is not a real word? haha...I use it all the time. Oh well. Love the buys. The corning ware used to be a popular pattern, matter of fact when I was a kid, I had a toy set like that and even came with those handles in plastic! Too funny, not thought about that is years. I came over to your blog to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving. Eat and have a great time.

    1. Pam, I hope that you had a great Thanksgiving as well. Yep, I used the corning ware dish I bought recently and remembered why they never seemed to be my favorite dish. Food stuck bad in it. Was pretty easy to clean though. LOL!

  14. Come to Tennessee and we'll go thrifting together! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, sweet Friend. 💜

  15. Cindy, I always love to see what you have been up to, and it looks like a lot of shopping and getting great buys! I hope your Thanksgiving was beautiful! Love and hugs!

  16. Cindy, You always find the best bargains and have so much fun shopping. Laughter is the best medicine. Glad your program with Chonda went so well. She is funny.
    I know your granddaughter was proud to have you attend her Thanksgiving feast. That's a great picture of you two.
    We had a great Thanksgiving with all my family at my house. Had them for a whole week. It was a lot of cooking and eating but a sweet time. My house got much smaller sleeping 10. Know your Thanksgiving was great, also. Now, everyone is gone and the decorating has started for Christmas.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Yes, I love Chonda. When a laugh is needed she is the one to watch. Sounds like you and your family had a great time too!

  17. Cindy, I've been helping a friend declutter (we still have a few sessions to go) and during our last session one of the things she reluctantly parted with (donated to our favorite local charity shop) was a stack of those glass snack sets just like yours! Your granddaughter made a perfectly lovely pie!
