Thrifty Thursday Too!!

Thanks again to Leigh for giving us an event to show off our finds. You can visit all the participants at her blog at: for Thrifty Thursday.

Here's my favorite of the week. My sister found this pack of thick paper coasters of roosters in Hobby Lobby. Then at GW she spotted this frame and look how wonderful it goes together. Makes a wonderful little picture. The whole thing together was $4.00. Good buy I'd say!

Have to start that fall decorating soon. Here's another pumpkin. It's ceramic and was $2.00.

This plaster type wall plaque caught my eye. Cute little hen. It was the most at $5.00!

I really like this wooden primitive looking piece to hang for Christmas.

This metal decorative wall piece I thought would look nice over a doorway. Maybe painted white? ($1.50 for that)

These dishes are a little different and nice for the fall. The wheat is sort of raised. I found 4 plates and 2 cups. I'll be on the look-out for more. They were all $1.00 each.

Here's a little better picture of the nice brown teapot. It was $4.00.

Bowls to go with the wheat pattern plates. And those glasses are heavy and super clear with square bottoms. Really nice for $.50.

Unfortunately there were only three of these nice bright red place mats. I'm sure they've never even been used. That's a glimmery gold band around them. Very Christmassy.

Only three but they're pretty Christmas napkins at $.50 each!
That's all for this week. I'm spending the rest of the week at the barn with my horses!!
Bye for now.

  3. Shirley,
    I have sooo...many dishes that I just sold my whole set with that exact same wheat pattern last weekend at a very low price. Darn it! You did find some wonderful things this week!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Living it up at Lakewood,

  4. You found some good deals again. I just don't get to the thrift stores or garage sales enough.
    I am too busy trying to get my blog to work properly. Lol

  5. Would you believe I've got those same exact fact, I've got complete settings for 12! They were the dishes I picked out 29 years ago when I got married and I still have them. We use other dishes now but seeing these makes me want to bring them back out for fall. Thank you for the reminder!

  6. Great deals, love the glassware and the pumkin is perfect for autumn!

  7. Great finds, love the wheat pattern plates.


  8. Shirl,
