Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.22

It's NIFTY THRIFTY time again...hope all of you have some awesome treasures to share with all of us here at COASTAL CHARM! First this week...I would like to say thanks to all of you who have been coming to my party...I started this THRIFTY party back in March and I never dreamed that it would take off like it has...you gals have really surprised me. I have made so many new and dear friends here at NTT...so let me tell you about one of them...her name is Jennifer. The name of her blog is ALL THAT GLITTERS...hop over and meet her and you will have a wonderful new friend too. Jennifer has been coming to NTT for some time now and she always has the "coolest" treasures that she finds for just pennies...she is for sure...one NIFTY THRIFTY GAL! One week she found a brand new monogram flag with a "S" on it and bought it because it was only 50 cents...that's correct...50 cents...you see this is not her initial, but she just couldn't pass up such a great deal. I was joking around with her and told her that "S" was my initial and next thing I knew...this SWEET GAL was mailing this flag to me! The last two months have not been good for my family...lots and lots of illness and then Mr.CC got robbed...so a gift from a friend in blogland just made my day. Please be sure to go by and visit Jennifer...you will love her and her FUN blog...now be sure to tell her that Linda said HELLO!



Found these while out thriftin' a few weeks ago...do you know where I can get some cute labels for them?

****Please everyone, follow these guidelines!****
1. Be sure to refer back to my blog so everyone can see who is participating today, 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. 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. Please do not link to an Esty shop or something similar (I will delete the link). If I see that your post is not really on track with the NTT theme and also if you don't link back, I'll delete your link...please don't make me do this. It's common courtesy to link back to the person having the party, so that all of your readers can find it too.
3. 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.

Linda, I have been following sweet Jennifer for a while now. I told her she looks like Kelly Rippa and we have been commenting on each other's blog since. She even signed one of her first comments, Kelly. She has a great sense of humor. So nice of her to send you that flag.

Anita said...

Hi Linda! This is my first time linking up, so I"m excited about seeing everyone's finds!!

Teri said...

Those are the exact spice jars my mom used in the 70s (maybe earlier but I didn't pay attention then).

Jennifer said...

Oh.....Linda!!! How sweet of you! I saw my picture and I was thinking, I'm so glad that's a good hair day!!! lol!!!! I'm so glad you liked the flag!!!! I'm a slow shipper so please forgive me. Please pray for us! We have no air in my house today. It's 83 degrees in here! Yikes!!! Waiting on the air man to get here hopefully real soon! Thank you Linda!!!!

Love,
Kelly! lol!

Linda, I have been a follower of Jennifer's wonderful blog for a while now. How sweet of her to send you the flag. I am always amazed at the generosity and kindness of fellow bloggers. I have "met" so many wonderful and talented friends through blogging. Linda, I count you in that group. Take care.

Kelly @ Much To Do With Nothing said...

Hi Linda,
Thanks for coming by to see the pillows! If you try them, please let me know. I thought of you while I was making them. I'm glad you came to look!.
I added the sizes after you left. One is 18" square and the other is 14"x21" rectangle. Her's were big too. They look great in those larger sizes.

I hate that you have had a bad month. Hopefully, August will bring better things for you and your family. I know it will be bringing more unbearable heat! It's killing me I tell ya!
That was so sweet for Jennifer to send you the S flag.

Amanda said...

If you find some labels, let me know! I picked up an awesome lazy Susan spice rack with glass bottles, but the labels are too 70's for me :)

Pearl Maple said...

Nothing like a nifty thrify find to make your day, found your blog space today and enjoying all the fun things you have going on here

Sue said...

I remember those spice jars from when I was a kid. I think you could print out your own or use chalkboard paint to write out the spice names. Yes, Jennifer is a keeper. She makes a big effort to visit so many people and say such positive things. Thanks for hosting, once again!
