Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.66 and a Winner

Hello ladies...I hope all of y'all had a wonderful weekend  and were able to stay "cool" in this summer heat. I spent Saturday with my girls in Birmingham...did some shopping and picked up Haley's wedding dress for her bridal pics that she will have made on the 15th. Sunday was spent making and addressing invites for her bachelorette/lingerie party that is being given by her maid of honor and that would be her little sister Mary Claire. A weekend at the beach with all the girls, now doesn't that sound like a lot of fun? Get this...I'm not invited...yes the MOB will be staying home...just where I belong...way too old for this type of weekend. We also started addressing the wedding invites and I'm very pleased with how they are looking (thank goodness). So are you wondering what thrifty ideas or treasures I have to share this week? I used some cute palm tree invites for the party that I found at a garage sale about a year ago...they were only $2 for a box of 50. The second thrifty idea I'm sharing today is...we are printing all the addresses and names for the wedding invites on our printer...Haley went with a beautiful font...so why pay for a calligrapher when you can get the look or less!!! I wish I could share the invites with you, but for privacy reasons, I better not. Okay now all of y'all know what I've been doing...let's now here what you have been doing...join the party and let's all have a good time here at NTT! Oh my...I almost forgot to announce the WINNER of that cute Ribbit the Frog Scentsy Buddy...the WINNER is Susan from Susan's Hearts and Flowers...congrats Susan and thank you Tracy for donating this cutie pie! Here are a few of my favorites from last weeks party.
                                                         Happy that you came by and
                                                         hope that you will come again,

****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 where it is easy for others to find it...the more people at the party...the more fun we will all have here.

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. Also you can share any thrifty DIY projects...love seeing what y'all can make on a dime!

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 would love for you to add yourself as a follower if you haven't already and please let me know, I love to know when I have a new friend. I appreciate all your comments, they really make my day.

You've been a busy girl lately! Weddings sure take up a lot of time, don't they? Glad everything is going well with all your plans. :-)

My Son and his fiancee had their bachelor/bachelorette party last weekend at Dave & Busters. First I've ever heard of having them together, let alone at a Pizza?Gamming place. As long as they are happy, that's all that matters ;)
The 25th isn't that far away anymore...creeping up fast and things are getting crazy!!

We've been having unusually mild weather..was hoping it would hold out til after my Son's wedding....they say it's going to heat up now, oh joy...


Diann said...

Thats great thrifty ideas regarding the invites! Thanks for hosting Linda and I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

Lynn said...

I love hearing about your wedding preparations. My daughter got married last Labor Day so it's all still very fresh. Such fun! And good for you for being thrifty where you can. I used my printer for lots of wedding details and it was more than fine. Thanks for hosting and I love the featured treasures from last week, especially the Shiny Brite ornaments. I can't get enough of them~

Lynda said...

Hi Linda. Thank you so much for featuring my vintage suitcase and Shiny Brite ornaments. I found more suitcases this past weekend and have linked them up to your party. Thank you so much for hosting. As always, I adore your blog. Lynda

Blue Creek Home said...

Post that address so all of us mature girls (aka ancient!) can crash that bachelorette party!!!

Is the wedding dress just gorgeous???

All That Glitters said...

Thank you so much for hosting Mrs. Linda!!! I hope you are trying to stay cool!!

Thank you for the feature, Linda!

Jeanne said...

Hi Linda, I know the wedding plans are fun and it sounds like you have great ideas. I also enjoyed the featured photos and posts.

Happy wedding and happy looking for those thrifty buys.
Hugs, Jeanne

Tootsie said...

these are fantastic finds and projects!!! I am happy to link in this week...thanks for hosting

dogsmom said...

I think the MOB should be invited to the party, and the MOG, even if discreeting also requested to leave before the wild fun begins.
I have no idea any more what wild fun is like, but I also know you could handle it. They just don't want to picture their mom being one of the girls at a lingerie party.

NC Sue said...

Thank you for hosting. I’m a follower, and this hop is found on a page on my site that lists more than 250 hops, memes, and photo challenges… some for each day of the week. Check under the header for the link to that page. I’ve also just started a BlogFrog community that focuses on hops, carnivals, memes, and photo challenges. Go to http://theblogfrog.com/1504201 to visit & participate.
I hope you’ll visit me soon. I follow back!

i love that old suitcase with the stickers, that's a great find. you guys are moving right along with all the wedding goodies-my sil did the same thing with her invitations-and they looked just as good as the ones i know people paid a lot of money for! i think that's a great and thrifty diy.

Hollie - TheSevenYearCottage.com said...

Linda, thank you again for hostessing!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

It's an awfully hot summer to be planning a wedding! I hope everything goes well and there will be a few cooler days for you! Thanks for hosting the party!!!

I'm new to your blog hop and love it! I look forward to stopping by next week and the week after that and so on. Great blog and thanks for hosting.


Tynk said...

Thanks so much for hosting the party!!


michelle said...

It sounds like a great weekend Linda! Maybe the MOB can have her own party with some of her friends! ;) How fun that she is doing a photo shoot too, she will be beautiful!

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Sounds like fun!!Thanks for hosting! :)

Donna said...

Thanks for hosting the party! The wedding will be here before you know it. I don't blame you for using the printer to address invitations. Calligraphy is so expensive.
Stay cool and try to enjoy all the little details.

CalypsoInTheCountry said...

Thanks for hosting...It has been almost 100 degrees the past few days so I am a little late with my contribution. The heat is really getting to me. It should not be this hot in NJ in June!
