Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.2

Here we are at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS second party and I can't wait to see the results from all your thriftin' outings. Last week we had such a wide variety of incredible deals...anything from a antique sewing table (being used as a bistro table) to a 90% off pink wire tier basket. This is why thriftin' is so much can find awesome deals on home the list goes on and on. I would like to thank you for making my first party a huge success...the turn out was amazing! This week I will be sharing with you some items that I found in the 90% off section at Hobby Lobby last week and a couple of Dollar Tree goodies.

$1.00 finials...think I will paint these too!
I found this Dept.56 FISH ornament at TJ Maxx for $ will look just beachy on my COASTAL Christmas Tree!
Well what's a thrifty gal to do? The first issue of FLEA MARKET STYLE magazine just came out and the price tag is $ I don't know about you, but I thought that was a bit steep...soooo off to Wally World I go...they discount their magazines and $8.95 was still not great, but I had to have this issue!
I came back to the condo and fixed me a glass of ice tea and out to my swing I went to read it from front to back...boy I'm sure glad that I broke down and purchased's full of fabulous ideas and my favorite was the article about "CANTON" see that's where I did most of my shopping for my antiques I have the "CANTON FEVER"...I can see a ladies road trip in the near future!

Awww, such a sweet little birdie you found. The Dept. 56 fish made me laugh. I've never seen one of those.

And yes, I'm jealous of your relaxing beach view too! I am so ready for some beach weather after the really ccccccold winter we have had here in Florida.

You do look comfortable reading your new magazine! I purchased mine last week... love it!
I love your finials! I purchased a couple of the little birds at the Dollar Tree too!
Thanks for hosting!

Wonderful treasures, but I like your balcony's view the most. No, I covet it. And your luscious warm weather. Enjoy it for all of us.

Diann said...

Hey Linda!

I just bought those finials yesterday at the dollar store too! I was going to get the birds, I still might. But, I got the roosters.

So, wish I could join you there relaxing on a beautiful day!

That wicker basket is darling :)

Cute bamboo basket...I can see lots of potential for that. Thanks for hosting! :o)

Blue Creek Home said...

I love the fish. And the little bird is real cute. Someone justposted those. They silver leafed them to look like mercury glass.
I agree with the cost of the magazine, but I enjoyed it too.

Angie said...

Great stuff! My HL needs to put the clearance to 90% off too!

Hepworths said...

TexNan said...

Wow! Canton's even farther for you than me, and I've not been in years. Can't make me! (I do enough damage driving around town.)

Funny, I have a couple of items you've shown: the first whatchamacallit and the bird. Great minds and all that. ;^)

Suzanne said...

Love that fish ornament -- he's definitely my favorite, but you definitely found some great deals!

Hi Linda, those are some great finds. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Angie said...

I was going to buy Flea Market Style, too, until I saw it was so much. Kinda steep for a magazine, huh! I bought the same birdie at him! Sure wish I was sitting by a beach right now!

Hugs ~ Angie

What fun! Don't you just love the 90% at HL? I got a great birdie candle holder there that I plan to put out when I take the St Pat's stuff down. I need to go hit Dollar Tree for some of those darling birdies to go with it!
Love your perch for reading! I am too stinkin' far from the beach here.

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

I posted about my yard sale finds yesterday and I should have waited to join your party today!!!! What's wrong with me????
I'm so off schedule, a day late and a dollar short! tee hee!
Anyway, I'm lovin' all these thrifty finds on everyone's blog. Maybe I'll catch the next one. Shame on ME!!!!! look sooo relaxing out on your balcony...the LIFE!

Rettabug said...

Don't you look comfy out there on the balcony with shorts & a tank top!! I've got sweats, wooly socks & the furnace up to 72ยบ today. LOL
Trade ya' places! :)

Great little finds you've got, too. I ♥ the finials. Sure wish our treasure haunts had such cool stuff. :/

Thanks for hosting the party today.

I adore your view and swing to relax on. Oh spring and summer days really are coming in our neck of the woods ...but are taking their sweet time to arrive.
Nice finds for a great price!

I also bit the bullet and bought the Flea Market Style mag! I also bought it at Walmart to save a few pennies!


Sharon said...

Ok...I want a patio and warm weather so I can sit out side and read a magazine. I am so jealous of your warm weather. All the snow has melted and I now can think spring. Love all your treasures.
