FRIDAY FAVORITES is Friday! I have a mixture of good stuff today so will start out showcasing this cute cake plate that a friends daughter made for her..... Isn't this just adorable? What a nice gift this would make. (Except mine needs to say Nana please!) Ha!

A friend of mine Lisa Christmas made this Gum Ball Machine for her daughter's teacher. She saw different ones on various sites and decided to make her own. Turned out adorable!

Now onto some Thrift Store Finds..............

Ooh, I love this Biscotti Jar by Nonnie. If you are a collector then you know that you can find some of the Biscotti product's  cheap the majority can very costly. My oldest daughter Kristy and I each found a Biscotti Jar. Wish I had a picture of hers. I LOVE MINE! $7.99

  Most Biscotti products are all hand painted and all different. 

Don't you just love this planter?  The possibilities are endless for use! Would be beautiful in a bathroom filled with washclothes, pretty soaps and etc!

Only $1.99 

3-piece Copper Canister set for $2.99

Fell in love with easel for .99 cents!

Do we ever get enough of candle holders? Couldn't pass this one up for .99 cents.

Too cute for .79 cents! LOVE IT!

I never pass up a good deal on greenery. 

Got the greenery in the basket for $2.99. 

Couldn't pass up this pretty glass decanter. The design is so pretty and I have a decanter/pitcher that matches it.
Paid a little more than I had wanted to but really like it. $2.99

And...I didn't find this cutie in a Thrift Store but I did find her playing in the toilet! This is what happens when Nana turns her back for one minute!  She has that look of "I've been caught"! LOL!

Praise the Lord the toliet was clean!

 By The Way...head on over to my friend Deb's Blog! She is having an awesome giveaway!

Go visit Diann at The Thrifty Groove...amazing Thriftyness!

And I leave you with this today..............

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
