Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.12

It's that time again...it's NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS here at COASTAL CHARM! This week I have been cleaning house and changing up some things, but I have been BAD...I have not been good about taking lots of pics...so I only have a few to share with you today. I was hoping to have all my new THRIFTY curtains up in the screen porch, but that didn't happen...I guess I should have stayed home and off our beautiful beaches...I just could not help myself...I love this time of year at the beach! While I was there, I found a SUPER DUPER deal at a local furniture store...I'm not quite ready for the big reveal...so today I'm only giving you a little peek...I know...I'm a big teaser!
Do you remember me from last week at NTT? Now I'm all filled up with sea shells found here at our local Alabama beaches! Now don't I look good for only .50 cents?Another white ironstone piece to add to my collection and another .50 cent find!A box of fruit vase filler from Target@4.99...I got mine for $1.49 at a local salvage store.Can you tell what I am? Come back later this week and I will tell 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). 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 wish I could find ironstone for fifty cents. I love all your seashells in that bowl. Not sure what that picture is, maybe a stool?

Victoria said...

Thank you so much for hosting this party! I have no idea what the green thing is, it looks like legs from a table but that would be too simple:)

alissa said...

Hmmm, I'm curious what the green thing is. Thanks for hosting a great party!

Hi Miss Linda,

I just adore ironstone. Yours looks so lovely.

While my entry may not exactly qualify as thrifty I hope that it may be considered nifty. It is my heartfelt wish that anyone who is in need of hope and inspiration will be blessed.

Thank you for hosting a fantastic party.

Okay, I have shopping envy. And shells in bowl envy. And fruit filler decor envy. You're killin' me here! Love ALL your stuff, even the mystery green arched thingy. Thanks for hosting the blog party each week, it's so much fun!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

the green thing is perhaps a stool???? can't wait to see!

Erin @ I Heart New England said...

I am so in love with that bowl!

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Love your bargains. You did great. Now, I wonder what that is? I gotta come back and see. I found a small ironstone pitcher today for $.99. Woohoo.

Hi Linda! Love the ironstone! I am in search of seashells for a make-over. I saw some at Target...yours are waaaaay better! Is it a table? Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

Linda,

I finally have time to catch up on my reading. I adore the soup tureen you purchased for a mere 50 cents! What a find! It looks beautiful filled with shells. I want to go shopping with YOU!

I invite you to enter my Cottage Charm Give Away

Thanks for hosting again Linda. It's always interesting to see what you've found each week! Is the green thing some kind of fold out bench?

Blue Creek Home said...

I don't know what the green thing is, but I like it already!

Iam thinking the green thing is some sort of shelving unit thingie! I want it, what ever it is!! LOL

Kristi said...

I love your finds and can't wait to see what the pretty green piece is! I'm guessing a table or plant stand! :) The shells look fantastic!
I LOVE your granite, could you tell me what color it is? I am keeping an idea file for the new house :)

You found some nice things. I like the addition of the sea shells. We need to get to the beach before it gets too hot! :)

Tennis Girl said...

Linda,
Thanks for hosting again, but I am having trouble linking up with the picture linky. This happens to be sometimes and sometimes it works for me??? Can you see if you can link me up? I would appreciate it.
I think your mystery find is a chair :)

Natasha said...

Hi Linda! I have finally made it to your linky party and the linky thing isn't being very cooperative! I hope everything worked, finally!

Best wishes and thanks for having me!
Natasha.

Love your thrifty finds! Thanks for hosting the party. I'm counting down...11 days until I'm in Gulf Shores! yipee! Can't wait!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Ironstone for 50 cents...what a deal! Love the tureen filled with shells. I just ordered shells on-line for a project. I can't believe I had to buy shells! When we lived in the Panhandle they were free for the taking.
Hugs,
Sherry

Tonya said...

Thanks for telling me about your party! I tried to ad your button but it wouldn't work for me...sorry still new at this! Love your finds!

Nancy said...

That bowl full of shells is beautiful!

I'm trying to guess what that is...looks like it's anchored or screwed into the wall???...so perhaps a shelf of sorts? At first I thought it may be legs of some sort to a table. Can't wait to find out! Like the color!

Always Nesting said...

Ok, I know this comment is going to make me sound like an absolute airhead but I didn't even realize you had this party till I read your comment on Jan's blog. DUH!! I feel so excluded :(

I get it, I get it, lol. That's me... a day late and a dollar short.

Rettabug said...

Hi Linda,

Thanks for hostessing this party every week. I can't always participate but I sure get lots of ideas when I do!
♥ all your seashells in that gorgeous bowl.
Can't imagine what that green thing is, but I can't wait to find out either!

I paid $7 for a bag of faux lemons at BL & thought I got a deal...HA!! You beat me, hands down.
