Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.14

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday with family and friends...what a great way to kick off the summer season! I'm here at our beach condo soaking up the beautiful Alabama coast (yes...we are OIL FREE)...come on down and join us here...we will show you some wonderful southern hospitality! Now...on to the PARTY...I did not go out thriftin this week, but I did just finish a THRIFTY cost was $1.50. I told you a while back that I was adding some THRIFTY curtains to my screen porch...well I did just that...with a big supply of white sheets (these came from two beach condos that we sold 3 years ago...they have just been taking up room in the linen closet...that place is way too full) the idea was born! I have been wanting to install some curtains out there and was planning on buying some white 100% polyester fabric...thinking that this fabric would hold up well outside and would be easy on the pocketbook, but then I remember that I had all those white sheets that were FREE and I LOVE FREE! So I guess you are wondering why it cost me $1.50...well ladies I had to buy some clips to hang them up with and yes...I spent a whopping $1.50 for six packages of clips! Each package was $5.99...then on clearance for .99...then 75% off the .99 the time I bought these, I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I knew they would come in handy and they did! Now...what did you find this week or what kind of THRIFTY project did you complete?

I'm In Love With My Hydrangeas

I just LOVE this time of year on the coast when my HYDRANGEAS start blooming! I have two large bushes and one small one in my backyard...I wish I had more...maybe one day I will. Yesterday I cut a few out some vases and jars and here is the outcome!

This little jar came from Ikea...had a cute orange candle in it...I just luv to recycle!
Luv this shade of blue.

$1.00 vase from the Re-store.
A little "COASTAL" touch!
