I am so excited to join Linda for her 5th Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. This has been so much fun and each week I am excited to see all the other blogger's "Nifty Thrifty" stuff! Check out Linda's blog over at

I decided to Yard Sale instead of "Thrift-storing". Had a ball!
The first yard sale I went to my eyes went straight to this cute cheese board with cloche. As soon as my eyes saw the price on it for $1.00....I grabbed that little cutie and paid for it right then. Love it! It even had two spreaders with it!!!!

 Found these table mats...there sit 5 of them...girl wanted to get rid of them and told me I could have all 5 for 25 cents!!!! Yep, will be using these for my little mama's Lemonade Party in May! 

Those of you that know me know I LOVE me some Jewells! 
Found these darling was 25 cents, one was 50 cents and one was 75 cents. 

And I just thought these two little gold spoons would be so cute used on a tablescape. Especially when I got both for 25 cents!

Now I did pay a little more for these wooden curtain tie backs than I really wanted to but...I saw a project involving the use of plates!!!! So, paid $3 for em'.

This plate was so pretty to me! I paid 50 cents for it. The detail on the plate is beautiful! On the back it had a date of 1971. I will be using this.....

And I just couldn't pass up this cute little wooden bowl.  I am a sucker for wooden bowls. It was 25 cents. 

For $1.00 I got this salt/pepper shaker-grinder. It is so neat. For the salt, you just shake it and for the pepper, you set the amount of grinding you want with a little knob and grind away. 

And last but not least...a silver plated creamer and sugar dish with the tray for?????????????????????????????FREE!
 In conversation with the lady hosting the yard sale I was telling her about my hosting a Lemonade party for a few of our young moms from church in May and that the creamer/sugar dish would be so cute to use on my table. After a few minutes talking "church talk", she said, "Here sweetie, just take this and use it for your little lemonade party!". She was so sweet! 

I've enjoyed my "Nifty Thrifty" shopping. Have a good week!
