Thrifty Thursday!

Not a lot of little things this week. Found a few great larger items though.

3 Cute Bird Houses. $10.00

I’ll stain these with Old English Scratch Cover. The white is just to glaring for me!!! I think these will go on the top of the pie safe in summer.




A HUGE basket! Love this! Perfectly Prim. Don’t need to do a thing! $2.00 DEAL!



A Yummy Cupcake scented candle It’s pretty big. 3 wicks. Smells DELISH! I’ll have Mr. Primcat black out the lid and I’ll remove the label so it fits into the decor better. Yum Yum!


And last but certainly NOT least a beautiful Pewter “colored” electric lamp. I love this!!! It’s great! But I can not for the life of me find a place for it in the Dining room where all my Pewter is. I have to much Pfaltzgraff Folk Art! And unless I take away a piece of that there isn’t a spot to put this. I am contemplating this wonderful piece’s future home.  I also have to find it an acceptable bulb. It had the big base so I’ll have to look around.

I paid 7.00 for this. Super deal!


That's it for this week folks! Not bad if I do say so myself. I did pass up a lot of overpriced things this week that I would have liked to have but Oh well… you are gonna have that!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

Pretty good deals..... Love the butterfly house. We have one in our garden and it is so neat to watch them fold up their wings and walk in to it. Reminds me that I need some new bird houses out there. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Carmen... Love those bird/butterfly houses you picked up, they will look perfect this summer..

Also a great find in that pewter lamp, I'm sure you'll find room to squeeze it in someplace..

Blessings, Traci
