Thrifty Thursday!

Hello friends! I hope your having a great week! I'll be back later this evening with my giveaway winner but for now... it was a fantastic Thrifty Thursday this week … so lets get to it.

I’m confessing… I bought a pumpkin. I should have my fingers wrapped with a ruler for this one after realizing how many I have. LOL! I'm not even going to fib to you. I actually bought this one and 5 more small ones at the goodwill's. I should have my butt kicked. I can’t help it. I love pumpkins! And this one was only $0.49! How could I say no!

How cute is this? Lets see who’s paying attention? A large red and white candle warmer and a USA sign. This is a heads up… I’m not keeping this. :) So keep an eye out because it’s going bye bye by via way of a giveaway at some point!!

Carmen, I'm sorry to say - "NOT FAIR" my GW doesn't hold a candle to yours. I've never hit the jackpot like you just did. I love it all, but that simple little "Wool" sign is WAY cute. ~Ann

Brenda said...

Please do not tell me that you scored this in one stop... Okay, now I have to quit being lazy and get out there hunting again. Skipped a trip the beginning of this week, but your post has inspired me to take off tomorrow morning. Love your finds! :)

Stacy said...

Oh my goodness~what a score!! I would just cry to find all those sheep :) and a pumpkin for .49...you would have kicked yourself for passing that up!
Have a great day~Stacy

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

Wow Carmen! What great finds! MY Goodwill never has goodies like this! Glad you decided to get the pumpkin, what a deal! Love the sheep and the wool sign!

Traci said...

Carmen, dear, you sure did find some goodies! So many sheep, if you didn't have a collection before, you do now, LOL...

What's one more pumpkin anyhow?

Blessings,
Traci

I went to GW yesterday and left with nothing:( You must have an amazing place to shop. I love the little mommy doll. She's so cute. Glad you had a great time thrifting. -Steph-

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Hello Missy Girl....
Such a fun post - you didn't get this ALL at one stop/shop!!!!

Amazing and just look at all those little sheep. A girl after my own heart.

And Carmen....you can't have too many pumpkins - they can be placed just EVERYWHERE!

Karen said...

Oh, my goodness--you really hit the jackpot! I love those sheep and the wool sign! I've been wanting one of those baskets, too. You are so lucky!! :) ~Karen

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Holy cow I want to go to your thrift store. I cannot believe what you found. That stand alone was a great find.

Rachel said...

Ok that's it ~ I'm going to have to stop being lazy & drive down to your thrift stores! LOVE all the goodies! I checked the goodwill here yesterday & they only had 1 ugly pumpkin for $3!!! :( Don't feel bad about buying it ~ you still have plenty of room left! :O) Can't wait to see who wins the giveaway!!

~Madalynne~ said...

I'd love to get a look at the people donating to your Goodwill ~ What are they THINKING?! Great finds Carmen. Love all the sheep and you would be crazy to pass up a 49 cent pumpkin ~ I just looked at them at Hobby Lobby yesterday . . . that size is 13 bucks!

Firecracker Kid said...

Wow, what a load of cute stuff. I like those Americana items *wink wink* Do you have a doll house or miniature farmhouse for your lil sheep? That could be the next thing on your list ;-)

Cheryl said...

WOW......what great finds! Our GW has nothing like the items you found. Love the crock stand.
Have a great day!

cynthia lee designs said...

Wow...I want to go shopping with you at your GW!! I haven't found as much at our GW lately. Used to be able to find all kinds of prim and country goodies.
I love, love, love your crock stand!! I've been wanting one of these forever. I've seen a few at the antique mall, but they want $110.00 for them.
Can't wait to see who wins your giveaway.
hugs,
Cindy

Welcome to my sheep and pumpkin filled world! ;o) Love the little "wool" sign and the crock stand too...yikes...Can you say "SCORE"?!! Have a happy Thursday!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Wow Carmen, Such wonderful goodies you got at the thrift shop. Who could part with all those precious sheep? And that crock stand? And all the other things are great. I would definitely be doing a happy dance. And the pumpkin,,,, never can have too many. Love it.
Take care

Looks like your timing was excellent! That pumpkin looks so real--how could you pass it up? And, wow, that crock stand was quite a find! All those goodies in one day--amazing. ~Roberta

There is no such thing as too many pumpkins! ;D

I am so jealous of all those sheep!

You seriously scored some great stuff!

I think I would have screamed with delight in the store had I seen all of the sheep and the wool sign, lol. I haven't gotten thrifting in a loooong time. I was thinking of going yesterday when it was 50% off day and decided to get some cleaning done around the house. Did I make the right decision? lol.
