Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.39 and a Christmas Open House

Hello ladies, I know everyone is busy getting ready for the thanksgiving  holiday and with that said, I would like to THANK YOU for coming to my party this week. Last week was the largest crowd yet at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS...I had 158 of you here and that made me one happy hostess!
This week I'm announcing my CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE here at COASTAL CHARM. The linky party will take place on THURSDAY DECEMBER 9...so please...SAVE THE DATE!!! I would love for you to help me spread the word about the party by posting my PARTY BUTTON (located below) on your sidebar. I hope all of you will come by and share your homes here on the 9th. I don't know about you, but I love going to OPEN HOUSES during the holidays...ideas galore...now who doesn't love getting more ideas? Tomorrow I'm getting my Christmas decor out and off I go decorating the inside of my home...I sure hope I can get some sleep tonight, because I'm soooo excited to get started...I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve! I have some new items to use this year that I bought after Christmas last year at low discounted prices...so take a look to see what NIFTY THRIFTY items that I have to share this week. I  almost forgot to mention that my GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY ends at midnight on the 23rd...so if you have not entered...then click HERE...I will announce the WINNER on Wednesday.
                                                        Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                              Linda




I couldn't pass up this "FUN" message board at 50% off...will be displaying photo Christmas cards!!!


Look how CUTE it is with some cards!


Going to make a red/silver ornament wreath...$1.25 box at Target.


Mercury glass ornaments from Target...$1.98!


Some bronze ornaments only .98 cents...TARGET...just LOVE that store!


More from TARGET...$1.49





My daughter got this cute little fella for her condo at college!


Eight snowflakes for only .98 cents...can never have too many snowflakes! I have big plans for these beauties.


I went way out on this one...it was $4.98...had to have it. I really like how it looks on my $2 garage sale lamp in my kitchen!


Gotta love them...they were FREE!!!


These were FREE too...I had a $10.00 coupon for Kohl's and got all four of these ornaments for FREE!!!

Blue Creek Home said...

I love Target too, but it's sort of like Sam's Club, I buy too much!
I love their Christmas dept. Alex and Caro bought some things for Alex's Blue Creek Home Basement.
The mercury glass ornaments are lovely but my favorite is your splurge item - the O Holy Night one!

Teresa~ Gardening with Soule said...

What great finds. I have to get out there and start too. thanks for inviting me here, glad to be a part of your nifty thrifty tuesday.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

It always feels a little like Christmas when you open the boxes and find new things from last year. It was a bit strange this year because it seems as if I just bought those things. This year has really flown for me!

I started decorating today...a bit early for me.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Linda, thanks for stopping by. I'd love to see your new fabrics too, so let me know if you have some posted. Fun, another Christmas party! I'll try to join yours too. We've got 4 linkies going on, so hope you'll stop by for my vignette party too.

Saw you are painting your DR, can't wait to see it in AW!

Biljana said...

You found great Christmas decor.
Thanks for hosting, hugs Biljana

Lori said...

I have already purchased some glitter ornaments. Thanks for the tip at Walmart.

A Cottage Muse said...

Great stuff Linda!! Your open house sounds great, thanks for the invite!!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Linda, I can't believe all the wonderful treasures you have found. I love Kohl's but where we live we don't have one. Sigh. Your Christmas open house sounds awesome. I do love to see everyone's lovely Christmas inspirations. Yours should be fab with all the fun items you found. I'm in! Thank you for being such a great host. I am trying hard to visit everyone.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Blessings, Jeanne

Laurie said...

Wow--Target is already having some great sales! I wouldn't have been able to pass up the O Holy Night one either -- one of my favorite Christmas songs! I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving...can you hear my foot tapping impatiently?

Van said...

Awww, nice to see Christmas coming to life at your house. I started yesterday too. Lots of Christmas DIY to come this season!

Debra@Dejarenew.blogspot.com said...

Hi Linda! I didn't know there was a linky party on your blog, so I'll have to remember this for when (if) I ever get a project done. :-)

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
