The holiday has come and gone...I hope all of you had an awesome time with family and friends...I sure did! My family spent the holiday at our beach condo here in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama. Last week was not a good week for us here on the coast...we had lots and lots of BP oil washing up and very high surf from Alex. There is light at the end of the tunnel...our beaches were cleaned up by Saturday morning and the sun was shinning bright for the weekend...had two beautiful fireworks shows...one Saturday night in Orange Beach and another one Sunday night here in Gulf Shores. This years celebration was one that we will never forget here on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
This week at my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY we will be looking at some awesome treasures that have been found by some of my THRIFTY friends. Please be sure to click on their blog name and read about these "COOL" thrifty treasures and tell them Linda@Coastal Charm sent you over!

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. This party is for sharing thrifty finds from garage sales, thrift stores, consignment shops, craigslist and even those awesome deals that you find at any retail store.
