Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.55 and a Giveaway

Here we are at the 4th week of my one year birthday celebration...yes...NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS is now 13 months old!!! I have another awesome GIVEAWAY for you all this week...it's a darling FLORA DOORA bag from Jane. I know that some of you are already friends with Jane and have some of these cute bags already in your home, but if not...then be sure to go by and meet her and check out all her other bags in her Etsy shop. These cute little bags would make wonderful Easter baskets...filled with goodies for your loved ones. This week I'm going to share (show off..he he) one of my all time favorite THRIFTY treasures. Last week I headed down to my beach condo and on the way there I hopped in at the Restore shop and there she sat on a shelf...just waiting on me to find her...now what could she be? She is a darling little spice rack...my first thought was that...she looked like she came right out of a POTTERY BARN store (maybe she did). Funny thing is...I had just came from Pottery Barn and while I was there...I got soooo many wonderful ideas, that I will be using around here at my nest. The next best thing was her price tag...get this...she was only $2.00...yes...two bucks and she was heading home with me. Take a look where I have her for now...I'm sure that she will get moved around a lot here...that's just how I do things here at Coastal Charm. Okay ladies...what have you found lately? Looking forward to seeing all your treasures...makeovers...and thrifty ideas...so link up and let's get this party started.
                                                                 Visit around and meet some
                                                                  new friends...that's always
                                                                                    FUN!
                                                                                 Blessings,
                                                                                    Linda

                                                            Lovin' her wood handle!

                                                This was my first thought of how I was going
                                                      to use her...love how my camellias
                                                              look here in my kitchen
                                                                        window!
                                                                           So simple!
                                                             The wire basket fits right in
                                                                         here in my
                                                                      kitchen decor!
                               


I'm not sure yet if I'm going to
take off her labels...what
do you think?

Oh, leave the labels on. They are great. You can always turn the bottles for the times that you don't want to see the labels. Great find.
Cheers!

Hope you don't mind me linking my giveaway...it's thrifty to the person who wins.

Actually, I'm away this week. My stepmother, the last parent I have, has finally agreed to go into a retirement place. So my sisters and I are packing her for her move in a few weeks. She will be able to take quite a bit with her as we were able to get her a nice apartment, then we will have to get the house ready to sell. She lives about 275 miles away so I will be back and forth the next few weeks. Maybe I'll find so thrifty things while I'm away!

Many thanks for hosting!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love your spice rack...she would have come home with me too! I would probably take those labels off. I might make new ones for the spices I use most often, or even use some of the chalkboard paint to create new labels.

Amanda said...

I love the simplicity of those bottles with the labels, so pretty!

Amanda said...

Hi, Linda! I was just dropping by to say that I thought about you as I strolled on the beach in Gulf Shores Saturday morning. We only had two nights there, but it was wonderful!

Jane, Naples, Florida said...

I adore your wire basket and the bottles! The
labels are wonderful too! I would keep them!
You cannot replace things like that. The
Flora Doora looks wonderful, I was thrilled to
see her. I am so happy to be participating in
your giveaway! I love Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!
Always so much fun!

Jane
