Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.63

Have you guys been as busy as I've been? It always seems like the month of May is a very busy month, no matter what year it is and this year it's no different. My daughter Mary Claire was home for the past 10 days and we had so much fun with her here. First thing we did was the three girls headed to Birmingham to see the DRESS...yes...Haley's wedding dress came in and it's BEAUTIFUL!!!! We will be going back in a few weeks to pick it up after a few alterations are completed. Spent a day at the beach...soaking up some sun on our beautiful gulf coast beaches..temps were just perfect. Mary Claire did some maid of honor jobs while she was here...just let me say...Haley is so lucky to have such an awesome MOH!!! We also spent a day doing a little thriftin'...this girl likes thriftin'...now that apple didn't fall very far at all! On Saturday we went to a college graduation party and we also went to a couples shower for Haley and Cam...like I said...May is a very busy month. Now enough about my busy week...let's all see what you all have to share with us.
                                        Thanks so much for joining me at my
                                       party and I hope you have an awesome
                                                            time here!
                                     Mr.CC gave me this beverage caddy from
                                        Pottery Barn for Mother's Day and I
                                             thought that "old" milk bottles
                                               would be just perfect for it,
                                                well I was wrong...so yes
                                               the caddy goes back to PB!
                                Still love my new (well...really "old") milk bottles
                                 that I found last week...this one was $8 and the
                                                      other one was $5.

I'm at these fun parties...

Love your milk jugs Linda! And those would have looked perfect in the caddy, which I love to by the way...Sounds like a crazy but fun time for you, and I can't wait to see the DRESS!!!!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

You have been busy Linda but at least it was for fun stuff! I just love the caddy and those old milk jars are awesome!! Have a great week, Martina

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

It's getting difficult to find the old milk bottles with graphics on them. You're lucky finding them at such a good price! Thanks for hosting a wonderful party!!!

La said...

Great milk bottles. I found a vintage caddy at an auction last week. It would only fit pint bottles so I moved on.

I hope all is well with you.

Donna said...

Love your old milk bottle! I have one just like it :) Your right May is such a busy month!

DearHelenHartman said...

Milk Bottles! Not much for a whole collection but would love one from the dairy in my home town. The graphics are so charming, just like the hostess of the link party! Thanks for hosting.

Lynn said...

I'm so glad you had a fun time with your daughter! Mine is living with me temporarily and we're having fun too! Such a blessing, these daughters, eh? Love your vintage milk bottles. Too bad the caddy didn't work out. Thanks again for hosting, Linda. Enjoy your week.

This is only my second linky party and I thought I wasn't doing it right and now I am on 3 times. If you could take 2 of them off, it would be great! I will get the hang of this hopefully sooner then later! Sorry for the problem but I am excited to finally being able to join parties, (kind of)!
Thanks so much,

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love your milk bottles! I would return the carrier also! Yes I find May to be a very busy month also. Enjoy your days and that wedding will be here soon! hugs, Linda

Amy said...

Thanks for hosting. Now to just make time to try some of them.

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

They didn't fit? I love that caddy. I'd like to find something like that to hold my blue ball jars. The milk bottles were a great find!

Rettabug said...

Hi Linda!

What a shame your caddy didn't work out for you! I sure wish I still had the one my grandmother owned. I remember it being used during birthday parties at her home.

Thanks for doing Nifty Thrify again. I don't always have bargains to share but I'm happy to join in when I can.


Cozy Home Scenes said...

I like the caddy. Too bad it didn't work. If you have a Hobby Lobby near you, they have some very similiar caddies with the milk bottle style jars on clearance right now. Maybe you could get something like that which would work.

Thanks so much for hosting the party for us.
