Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.9

I hope everyone had a great weekend...I've had a great time here at my beach condo...moved some furniture around while Mr.CC wasn't here (surprise honey)...soaking up some rays...taking late afternoon walks along the beach and working on some THRIFTY projects that I will be sharing with you later. I didn't go out to garage sales, but I did make a stop at a local thrift store last week and found some THRIFTY goods. I know I can count on all of you for finding some awesome treasures...so lets see what you found this week.

I have a great idea...this week at NTT... PLEASE go by at least 15-20 blogs and comment...tell them that you came by from NTT...I bet you will find lots of new friends and see some outstanding stuff...give it a try and let me know if you had a FUN time!
I found this glass cloche with a $2.74 price tag...put one of my cute $2.00 nest in it and I'm lovin' the look!
I have been looking for some bottles and here is what I found...small bottle on the left .99...large bottle in the middle $1.74...the bottle on the right was $2.48...I have a couple of ideas on how I'm going to use them...read on to found out!
A few weeks ago Sharlotte@Ms. Sharlotte's Southern Reflections shared these fabulous bottles with us at NTT...I knew as soon as I saw them, that I had to make some...so this is one idea!Second idea is to use this bottle for mouthwash (just need to get a cork for the top).I like having items in my guest bath for all our overnight guests.WW cookbook for $1.98...Mr.CC and I are still on this plan and lovin' how it's working for us...I have lost 12 pounds and feel sooooo much better.New shower curtain hooks @.99!Remember my cute little $1.50 Ironstone pitcher from a few weeks ago? Well she has found a home right here on my mantel.
