Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.77 and a Giveaway

What's up with a gal that can't get you her own party on time? Sorry ladies that I'm so late today...been at my beach condo and got back home later than I planned on...guess those things just happen. Well I'm here now and ready to get this party rolling...so come along with me and let's see what everybody has been up to. I've been at the beach, so I have something from my beach home to share this week...I'm all about saving a buck...how about you? I also have another great giveaway this week. This week Roselle from SEASIDE ROSE CREATIONS has donated a lovely chalkboard and a darling little framed vintage key to one of my lucky followers...so go by and meet Roselle and give her a big THANK YOU...now let's see how you can WIN!
Seven ways to WIN!!!!
1. Follow Roselle at SEASIDE ROSE CREATIONS...2 entries
2. Go by and leave Roselle a comment on her blog...2 entries
3. Go by and check out her Etsy shop and come back and tell me your favorite item...2 entries
4. Follow me...1 entry
In order for each entry to count, please leave a separate comment for each. The giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday 9/4 and the winner will be announced on Monday 9/5. Good luck ladies!!!!


                 My new best friend...okay I know that sounds
                       a little crazy...having a swing as your
                          best friend...but there is nothing
                        better than swinging and watching
                                         the surf!!!!
          So what's so thrifty about her...first of all...as we were
               leaving the store (Lowes) I saw that the display
               had a huge price tag on her and she was $20
               cheaper...well I went right back in there and
               got my $20 bucks (I think the tag was a
               mistake...oh well)...then I asked the clerk
           about how long will they honor a sale price...get
                 this..90 days...so if this baby goes on
               sale in the next 3 months...I'm going to
               get more money...hope this might help
                  some of y'all who shop at Lowes.
                             Another thrifty purchase...this one
                            was found at Home Depot...got her
                             back in the Spring...had a Lowes
                             coupon that they honor...another
                                            thrifty tip!

trumatter said...

Linda, thank you so much for letting me in on the giveaway and Roselle's blog! I did visit her blog and just couldn't help but comment on her creations.

You have a wonderful blog Linda and I am so tempted to buy a swing myself. Ah, on the porch by the beach, or a wicker one in a cozy corner by the window...I love all swings. LOVE them. Grabbing the coastal charm button and coming back for more. Love xx.

trumatter said...

Oh, and I also hovered around her etsy and its crazy beautiful. It was hard choosing one! But since one is the number I should stick to, this Salt Shaker Ball Jar Style would be my pick. Its the cutest!

Simply Beautiful Now said...

What a fabulous view on your porch! And such amazing finds! I can imagine the beautiful breeze while reading a book there...I love the coast and yearn to have a beach house someday...

I think a visualized display can be better then just a straightforward text, if stuff are defined in
graphics one can without difficulty be familiar
with these.
