Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.58 and a GIVEAWAY

Hello ladies...hope all is well with all of y'all. Spring season is in full swing here on the gulf coast and that means that the garage sale season is going strong...is it going strong where you live? This past weekend there were several signs on every corner...I went to two sales and Mr.CC went to a hoarders estate sale (he is one brave man), but he did find some tools and garden supplies that he needed for his veggie garden...yes...my hubs is a FARMER!!! Last year was his first time to have a garden and he loved it so much that he is having another one this year. I don't have any pics of Mr.CC's treasures, but I do have pics of my treasures to share with you today. I also have another GIVEWAY for you today...it's a real cute sailboat printed tote bag that will come in handy for the upcoming summer months...it was donated by Marydon over at the BLUSHING ROSE . Marydon has a boutique on her blog full of goodies...it's called BLUSHING ROSE BOUTIQUE...hop over and check it out. Now let's get this party started and share all our NIFTY THRIFTY treasures and ideas!
                                                Thanks so much for coming by

                                                                   Linda
