Thrifty Thursday

It's Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville again, and I just had to show and tell my happy finds for the week. First up are these frames. I got them Saturday morning garage sale-ing for .50 cents a piece. You know those times when you're just trying to act all cool and indifferent. (Like when you really want three frames at a decent price, so you don't want the seller of said frames to see how excited you are?!) Well, lets just say I don't have the best poker face. I was giddy and silly and all excited as I skipped over to ask "how much". I guess I just got lucky that the nice lady didn't ask for my first born in exchange. (Which, just for the record would have been a real deal breaker.)


At the next garage sale I acquired these darling doilies for .25 cents for the whole lot of them. No, I have no idea what I will do with them, but I will happily watch them gather dust while I am deciding.

Later this week I found this fabulous belt at the dollar store and it still had its "Target" tag hanging off of it. I don't know if it is the thrill of the hunt, or some other inbred survival mechanism, but 'thrifting' sure is addictive!:):)

Ah, I love all of it!! But the belt is my absolute favourite!;)) I also like the chest? that is it placed on, the composition of the picture appeals to me.;)) You and I would have so much fun going to flea markets together.;))

You are a funny, funny girl. I was giggling through most of your post. Ah, how I miss you!

And I love your finds...even if they are just going to gather dust (did you inherit that or something?)

I still think you totally lucked out by asking the guy at the g-sale how much the doilies were... I'm sure the lady would've charged ya more. I'm gonna miss you this Saturday... If I see anything you'd like I'll snag it for ya... (if it's a quarter)

I just stopped over from Bloggeritaville. Your frames are great! I love the curvy shape. Really good buy!
If you'd like, you can stop over to my blog. I'm having a give-a-way.
