Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.8

The past four days have been very busy…I have been out of town and I’m still not back home yet. I’m so sorry that I didn’t get by to all of you at last weeks party, but I was busy planning and packing for my trip. I will be sure to check in with all of you this week to see what you have found while out thriftin! While I was in Atlanta I did manage to stop in a GOODWILL store and stop by a GARAGE SALE…I only found a couple of things and I will share them with you next week. I have been very busy working in my yard planting lots of new plants…this is one of my favorite hobbies…bad thing is that I only have a couple of pics of them to share with you at this weeks party….more to come later in the week.

I found this planter at Garden Ridge last Fall at 90% off…got the flowers at our local Flea Market…paid $8.00 for all three of them!

Luv the bright PINK!


This urn was found at a garage sale for only $3.00…luv how it looks on one of my “chippy paint” tables in the screen porch!


****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). Please make sure that you have put my NTT button or my blog name with a link on your post. I have seen that some of you have forgot to do this…so this is just a sweet reminder.
2. Please go and visit the other participates and leave a comment about their treasures and thrifty ideas…this is what makes the PAR-TAY so much FUN! What a great way to meet new friends.

I’m having a GIVEAWAY that you don’t want to miss out on…so go here to enter!

The $3 urn is fabulous and I love the pinks too! I wish we had a Garden Ridge here! I shopped there a lot when I lived in VA.

Hi Linda...Thank you for visiting CollectInTexas Gal and inviting me to your Party. I hope everyone enjoys my Thrifted Texas Plates.

Your planters and flowers are so pretty and springy. I haven't got there yet with the flowers even though we have had nice weather in Texas for planting and potting. Your post has inspired me...Sue

What a great find on those planters. I love that style with the liners built in. I've never seen these but as window boxes but I love the little feet. The bright pink flowers are so pretty too!

Rettabug said...

We were BOTH planting flowers this week!! I ♥ your planters & that bright PINK! Too early to put out geraniums here yet but soon.

Want to add your Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays Widget to my blog so I can play every Tuesday. When I copied and pasted url, it didn't work. Please check and let me know how to connect it. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said...

Thanks for visiting today, Linda! I'll link up to your party when I have something a little more 'thrifty'. Today's mural didn't qualify ;)
My nephew lives in Atlanta! He plays for the Falcons! I'd love to visit him and see the sites soon! I'm secretly hoping one of his football buddies hires me to paint a mural, then I'll fly over on his dime! Ha!
Love the geraniums. I need some red ones as I live in a red farm house. Had some last year, but they were annuals. You know the bright red ones? Just perfect!

Jess said...

Thanks for the invite over-I appreciate your visit as well! :)

As always, thanks for hosting!
