Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.3

Hello ladies...it's time for NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS...yippee! Last Thursday Mr.CC had a meeting out of town and ask me if I wanted to go along with him...well you all know what that means...a day of thriftin' in a NEW city...sure honey I will go with you and help out with the driving (how sweet of me). I went straight to my computer and looked up all the thrift stores in Birmingham...printed a list and I was set to go! I'm not a morning person...so getting up at 3:30 a.m. to go check out some new thrift stores is a huge sign that I must be a thriftaholic! Hey...it could be a lot worse...thank goodness it's only thriftin'! With Marge (my GPS)...I made it to four stores and found some goodies that I'm sharing with you today. Don't forget to check back on Thursday to see who made the HIGHLIGHTS...it might be YOU!

****Please everyone, follow these guidelines!****

1. Be sure to refer back to my blog so everyone can see who is participating today, and if you like include the NTT button in your post (copy and paste the html code under the button...the button is located on my sidebar).

I love all your purchases. I am especially fond of your milk glass butter dish, because I collect milk glass. You got some great treasures. If I were you, I would go with the hubby more often. Love & blessings from NC!
