Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.82 and a GIVEAWAY

We all love celebrating birthdays and anniversaries right? Well I know I sure do, but how can we celebrate if we forget about it...now that's just I have done...silly me!!! Back on August 31 Coastal Charm had it's second birthday...who knew? Sounds like I didn't...well I did know it was coming up, but just let it slip right by me. I always like to celebrate a birthday with gifts...don't you? So I have a little something to give to YOU my loyal followers and FRIENDS...sure hope you like it:) Check the end of the post to find out what it is. Next let's see a couple of thrifty goodies that I have just added to my nest and also check out these awesome features from last weeks party...y'all make it really hard to only pick a couple to feature with all the wonderful links at the party and boy...we sure had a HUGE crowd there...my largest party so far...300 links...thanks so much ladies for showing up...LOVE a HUGE crowd!!!
                                      Happy to have you here,
                                                 Linda
                                              I finally found her!!!!
                                         Had this darling little pumpkin
                                            for many years...always
                                           hold on to my favorites!
                                  While shopping at a antique mall/flea market
                                     in Montgomery, I spotted her there just
                                           waiting for me to show up...she
                                           was on sale and then I got 10%
                                           off...final price was $22.50!!!!

                                       Tip-most antique shops will give you
                                       a 10% discount off anything $25 and
                                         up, you do need to ask for it and
                                                they do ask you to pay
                                               with cash...give it a try!!!
                                   
$2.00 cutie...sooooo many possibilities here!!!
