Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.97

WOW...hard to believe that it is already mid January! Have you started any new thrifty DIY projects this year?  Today, I have started my first one, painting my kitchen. Are you kidding me? I thought you just painted that room...well I did...but that was two years ago. Oh yes...only a short two years later and I am painting it again, but I have been dreaming of a new color and you know...we all love our dreams to come true...don't we?  Looking forward to sharing it with y'all, when it's all done, think you will like it...I sure do. Today, I will be sharing some thrifty treasures that I have found. Who doesn't like finding real white ironstone for just pennies...I know I sure do. I'm not sharing the best deal with y'all today, that will come later, when my vintage china cabinet gets it's makeover (shame on me for teasing you like that). It's time to get this party going, so link right up and go visit your neighbors here at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY!!!
                                   Happy to have ya here,

My $4.50 treasure!!!
                    As soon as I saw this at a flea market back in
                    November...I knew that she would come home
                                 with me...love her style!!!
                        My large dough bowl has found a new home
                                         in my dining room.
                        Another thrifty treasure...found this tureen
                           at an estate sale...only $1.00! Okay...I
                           know the ladle is missing...but I'm
                           okay with that. Maybe I should add
                           a silver ladle that I have...yes...I
                                 think I will do just that!
                                 White ironstone covered veggie
                                                 a deal!!!!

                                    Simple is the look that I'm
                                          lovin' these days!!!

Now let's check out some links from last weeks party...please remember that I only
feature blogs that have a link back to my blog on their post.

Hi Linda,

I was so excited to see my upcycled spring tea-light holder featured this week at Coastal Charm! Thank you so very much! It always feels good to get recognition. BTW, I really love that huge wooden dough bowl you found at an estate. Reminds me that I need to start checking out estate sales more often than I currently do.

Thanks again!!!

Oh goodness. I have close to the exact same tureen. Also an estate sale find but I think mine was $4. It's one of my fave finds ever.

I linked up a Vday gift DIY tutorial from one of the other finds I got out thrifting.

Have fun with it right?

Love your wintry vignettes. You've given me some great inspiration. I think putting away all of the Christmas decos took something out of me and I haven't redone for "winter". Thanks for the inspiration.

Wow! There's a lot to see over here. I stopping by from Diann's Thrifty Things Friday. Last year was my all white period. I found all kinds of white ironstone. I just love it. It's all very versatile. Ok, I guess I better go refill my coffee cup and get settled in the visit a bunch of blogs. ~Ames
