Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.31

Finally it's starting to feel like FALL here on the gulf coast...our forecast for the week has our temps in the 80's! I know that to some of you that still doesn't come near your FALL temps, but for us it's HUGE...we are finally getting out of the 90's...so with these cooler temps what's a gal to do? Get a move on and start some FALL NESTING! It's going to be a lot of fun this year because I will be shopping my house instead of going out and buying MORE stuff...on top of that...I'm winning some brownie points with Mr.CC (he is all about me cutting back on home decor...MEN)! Now you know what I have been up to...so now it's your turn to share with all of us what you have been doing!

Do you remember these FREE flowers that I found at the dumpster last month while I was moving my daughter into her new college condo?


I used a $8 vase that I found last year in a home decor consignment shop and added some bamboo from one of my favorite stores...DOLLAR TREE!

Another DOLLAR TREE goodie!


****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 Etsy 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 and what a great way to meet new friends.

I am so glad that you have gotten around to normal temps. It makes getting things done so much more pleasant.

Looks great Linda!

I went to the Michigan v. Bowling Green football game this weekend in Ann Arbor. As we were waiting for the shuttle to take us to the Big House, two Auburn fans walked up and got in line. I asked them if they made a wrong turn. They were actually from Georgia and traveled all that way to watch the game. I thought of you because I knew you were an Auburn fan.

Have a great week! La

I loved this morning when I got out bright and early to run some errands and looked at the temp in the car around 9:30....it was 66 degrees!

How about those Tigers?

War Eagle!

No fall temps here in Florida yet, but your flowers could put me in the mood. Very nice!

So smart of you Linda, to shop your house instead of spending money like I did! The flowers look great.

Hi Linda, Your flowers and vase are lovely. I started decorating for Fall today since the temp has dropped into the 80's. A lot better than Friday at 98 degrees! Take care.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

What a way to be thrifty!!! They look great! I totally understand about the cutting back. We had to do that but I did end up spending about $30 on some additional fall items! I tried!

Thanks for hosting again!

AshTreeCottage said...

Cutting back ~ I'm not sure that phrase is in my vocabulary. I can be pretty thrifty, but I'm all about the decorating. Your floral arrangement is lovely and you have inspired me to start decorating for fall. Thanks for the fun party!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley
