Thrifty Thursday

I just came across a new blog (to me) called Tales from Bloggeritaville. Isn't that the coolest name! It puts me in a very happy mood, and I immediately want to play Jimmy Buffet's music and drink an icy Margarita!
Leigh hosts a weekly "meme" called Thrifty Thursdays where you get a chance to showcase a very special thrifty treasure. This is the perfect opportunity for me to share my great finds that I find at least once a week!!!

A week ago I stopped at a garage sale and found this dish for a $1! I love dishes/bowls by the way...

Take a look at this gorgeous little candlelight! It will go perfectly with my Thanksgiving dishes!

I also found this ashtray for a $1! We don't smoke, but we had company last Friday, and one of our guest is a smoker, and as you know a true hostess with the mostess must make their guests feel welcome!

And of course I just had to get the milk glass bowl which I can actually use for a floral arrangement...I can see daisies. The glass butter dish is nothing great, but needed one. The last one we had was broken by Dear "Hubs".
All of these thrifty treasures were just for a $1.
Don't forget to stop by Leigh's Thrifty Thursdays and visit great thrifty treasures!!!


  1. I love some great thrifty did great! Love those divided serving bowls! Is this one fire king? Love the green design. I collect milk glass and that is a sweet bowl and will make a lovely flower arrangement!

  2. Hello Olivia....
    Ah... Thrifting! I can see you are a girl after my own heart. I’m always on the look out for that little something, you never know what it may be. Our car boot season will be starting very again now the weather is improving, we are always up early on Saturday mornings and off to town to catch a few bargains.

    I know I am going enjoy reading more of your blog. Marion
