New Thrifty Things Living In My Nest

I have been having a lot of fun adding lots of new THRIFTY things here at my nest...let's see what I have been fussing it up with. My sister had surgery last month and after I checked her out, she came home with me for a week. While she was here, she brought it to my attention that I didn't have a clock in our family room...silly me...we all need to keep up with the time...right? So okay I will go out and get I wanted to make sure that all of us in the 50 and over club could see it with no problem. I looked at several stores and found that what I wanted was a very large when I spotted this baby at TJ Maxx and her price tag read $29.99...problem solved...we all have no excuses now for being late ever again!!! When she went up...that meant more goodies needed to move in too. Picked up a couple of these $1.00 pots at IKEA and added them to the sconces...moved in one of my new ferns in the white apple basket...both from IKEA and then added this wonderful old wicker basket that I found at an estate sale in Greenville, S.C. a few weeks ago. I moved all the red accents out of here and now I have a whole new look that I'm lovin'.                              
                                 Hope you all have a wonderful
                                         weekend...I will be
                                     enjoying watching some
                                    college football and a day
                                             at the beach.

                        If we have trouble seeing this baby...we
                                        are really blind!!!!
                           Removed a very large red basket from the
                               entertainment center and added a new
                                  $10.00 IKEA basket to hold these
                                          very heavy zebra balls!!!
                             Pulled out my football coasters!!!!
                          Bye Bye RED...see ya at Christmas time!!!

                                    I knew I would find a great
                                    place for this darling little
                           My baby girl is coming home for the first
                             time since Haley's this calls
                                    for some big ribeyes on the
                                    GREEN EGG...yum yum!!
                              Love my old basket found with a $18.00
                                                   price tag!!!
                             If you missed my last can check
                             it out here and find out how much this new
                                                  baby cost me!

                                   Some cute pumpkins added to my
                                   mantel...they were found last year
                                 at Goodwill for only $1.99 for both!!
                                     Here you will find my 25 cent
                                             driftwood church!!!
                           and one of my $5.99 IKEA ferns...looking
                                all pretty in this $2.99 apple basket.

The clock is wonderful! and I really like the fall neutrals you're using now.

Always Nesting said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous and I love that clock. If it makes you feel better I now seem to need large print, large font, large clocks and forget my wristwatches. I need one that has hands big enough for me to see will keep my arm from swinging to the ground. :) But I'm still wanting a really large face and looking...

Unknown said...

A great room and look. I really like the textures and colours, and the chunky frame is my favourite piece.

deb said...

Lovin' the new redo! So warm and welcoming,
The clock is to die for!
Have a great weekend!

Kelly said...

I just love your family room! It's so charming. I have always liked choc brown, apple green and white together. I love the zebra touches too. You've used it in just the right places. Your new finds are great too. The clock is perfect above your sofa. I have one similar in my foyer. It, too, came from HomeGoods for that price. You can't beat it! I also really love that branch with cotton on it in a bottle. So clever! I would like to find some of that for sure. That goes right along with those "natural" touches I love so much.


I love your basket, but the pumpkins are devine! Your entire family room is so pretty, inviting and so charming! Of course I can see your terrific clock on top of the sofa! Thank you for sharing. Lots of hugs, FABBY

This is just beautiful -- so relaxing, warm and inviting!! What a great idea to remove just things in a certain color and replace with another to completely change the look of a room for the season!
