Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.15

I'm sure that some of you are wondering where I have been this past week...on Wednesday my 82 year old mother had surgery to have the right side of her colon removed...the surgery went well and today we got the news that we had been praying for...she does not have colon cancer...I'm so happy that our prayers have been answered...God is good! I have not had time to post and sorry that I'm late getting the PARTY up and on that note...I'm going to re-post some garage sale finds from last Fall...I hope you understand:)

Southern Living Home...Estate Trivet Trio $37.95...brand new in the box...$2.00...just what I needed for my new granite counter tops!

FUN Wine Carafe...$3.00!

Vintage"California Pottery" Lazy Susan Set...$1.50

Vintage Picnic Basket...$2.00!

Added it to my collection...I needed another one really bad...this is were I keep my cookbooks and I was running out of space!

****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. I have seen that some of you have forgot to do this…so this is just a sweet reminder.
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. Please do not link to an Esty shop or something similar (I will delete the link). If I see that your post is not really on track with the NTT theme and also if you don't link back, I'll delete your link...please don't make me do this. It's common courtesy to link back to the person having the party, so that all of your readers can find it too.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Linda, glad to hear your mom's surgery went well. I wondered why this linky never came up yesterday. Then today I forgot to even look and it wasn't up on my blog roll. Then I checked after cutting the grass and low and behold you are back. Then the date says Sunday June 6 and I thought maybe something was wrong with blogger again. I heard a lot of people could not blog the last couple of days.

Beach House Living said...

Good new about your Mom. Do stop by for my first "give back" to enter to win.

Debbiedoos said...

Hi a matter of fact I was thinking about you. Sorry about your Mom, hope she has a quick recovery. Your party never came up on my blog roll, so I thought you where not having it this week, hence I am later:) Thanks for hosting, and I am off to visit some other participants.

Debbiedoos said...

P.S. Love the picnic basket, you scored on that one, we have one, but it was more that 2.00!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

God is indeed good! I'm sure you are relieved with the news of your mom's clean bill of health.
