Thrifty Finds this week

Hi,friends!  I hope you’ll all make yourself comfortable at my new place. Take off your shoes and enjoy.  There will be some tweaking to do with this new blog (fixing some broken links, etc.), but I’ll be working on those as I find them.  If you see something that is off, feel free to email me about it, thanks!  A BIG thanks to my blog designer, Darcy, at Graphically Designing for making the switch for me and holding my hand.  And not making me feel like an idiot at trying to learn a new program.

I have over 3,800 subscribers to my Blogger blog, so please, please ALL of you take the time to re-subscribe to my new one.  That would be wonderful! I love knowing that all of you are still out there with me.

So, on to the Thrifty Party this week.  I got to a few sales, but really didn’t buy much at all.  And that’s OK, there’s always  next week, right?!


There are some fabulous views here in Birmingham and this was the sight from the back deck of a moving sale in Brook Highland.  Isn’t that WOW?!  It was so packed, I went through and looked as well as I could and grabbed only one thing.


This softly draping knit dress by Nina Leonard was $1!  Steal!  I  never found a size on it, but figured since it is a wrap-style dress it could work for me and it does just fine.  The sleeves were a little long (that hardly ever happens), so I’ll just push them up.  This isn’t a complete wrap dress, in that it’s not open all the way down, but only the middle section wraps  and I like it better that way.  I love that I can tighten it or loosen as needed.  You know, just in case I get fat or anything. 🙂


And with my $2 shoes from last week’s sale, a pretty thrifty outfit, all for $3.  The material is really comfortable too and you know I loved the print. Giraffe is it? Black and white is such a staple in my closet.  I looked online and found a link to QVC and they were selling the short sleeved version for $46, here.  But, it’s no longer available. I did get a deal! IMG_5985

Moving on, in my own neighborhood at a sale, I found this pretty lime green plastic pitcher for 50 cents. Always nice to have in the summer and it will coordinate with my other outdoor dish finds.


This pretty tiny little oil painting was 25 cents. I just love these little vintage paintings and at that price, wasn’t about to leave it.  It will look cute on an easel on a bookshelf.

IMG_5987We’ve added 2 hummingbird feeders in the backyard this year and have had a ball watching those cute little creatures, so when I spotted this iron hummingbird, I had to get it.  At $3, it was my splurge of the day.IMG_5983I stopped by one of the big thrift stores in Alabaster since I was over that way for an in-home consultation last week and found one thing to bring home. This green print skirt from Old Navy was more than I usually spend, but I love the style of these skirts, so for $5, wasn’t too bad.  It has some pretty ribbon trim too, a great summer skirt. IMG_5989This is not a yardsale piece, but you have to see what I won in a giveaway.  Lara Harris, a wonderful artist, had a giveaway and I was lucky enough to win it.  I sent her a pic of the photo of my iron urn (from a yardsale of course) on my header, so it seems only fitting to have this captured on canvas.  I love it, Lara!  I’ll have to find the right spot for this 5×7″ beauty. Check out Lara’s blog for all her beautiful paintings.  You can get one done too!

So, get ready to share your treasures too.  Remember our guidelines for Mr. Linky parties:

  1. Enter your permalink to your thrifty post and NOT just your blog url.  If you aren’t sure how to do that, please refer back to last week’s party. All links that do not go to your party post will be deleted.
  2. Please add a link back to THIS post, so that all your readers can find the party and join in or at least read about all the fun that everyone else had, or I’ll have to delete those too.
