~ Thrifty Thursday ~

Hi Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! It's raining in Ohio today. A far cry from the beautiful day we were treated to yesterday. But we must have rain for flowers... so I'll take it!

Last night was Zumba again. Love it. Really love it! I feel great today. I'm a little sore but that's ok!

I love it so much I bought the Zumba DVD set. Split the cost with my shopping partner in crime Jamie. We have committed to 2 days a week at home. I will also be going to the classes still on M & W. She's getting married September 29th so we have to get our skinny on!

I never thought I would be a workout girl. Who the heck am I?????

So this is the set… and I ordered an extra set of toning sticks off ebay for her. It should be here before next Friday I hope!


Now… on to the goodies!

Cute little bread board. $1.00 ♥


Nice colonial sconce. $1.00



Love this little box! $.50


Yarn on the sides!


And by some fancy schmancy artist in England!


How cute is this little spring basket of flowers?  $.50




A punched Tin nightlight clip. $.50


A wonderful candle holder. Love these. I have a few now. $.50


Cute Little Bird House. $.50


And 3 nice pieces of Williamsburg pottery for $.50 each.


Love this cute little flower vase/jug.


Hurry up spring so I can put some garden flowers in this!


That's all for today folks!

Until next time…

Wow, Carmen. More nice goodies from the goodwill. Where do you put all of it? I tend to hide mine in the attic so the Mr. doesn't see it. LOL Can't wait to see how you decorate with all these goodies.
Country at heart

Holly said...

Zumba sounds like so much fun. I should try it, but just never have got up the nerve. Ha! Good excuse huh? Hehe.. Love all of your finds. Sure wish our thrift stores had good stuff like that! I'm jealous!

Love the pottery pieces. I collect those. Another thing we have in common!
Going to Goodwill myself today!

Ha! Tamera and I must be on the same wave length today - As I looked at all your wonderful new treasures I thought "where, exactly, do you PUT all this stuff?"!!! Maybe it's a good thing that our GW isn't a treasure trove of finds - Lord knows what kind of trouble I'd be in there! My favorite this time around is the little cutting board - what a steal! Happy Thursday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Great finds! The Goodwills near me never have good stuff. Love seeing all the deals you find though.

Once again Carmen awesome thrifts!! I love that bread board. I can't do Zumba!! LOL I have a bad bladder but if I didn't I think I would have a blast doing it. I watch it on TV sometimes while I sit on the couch!! No kidding!! I do walking though. For real. I just realized I haven't been thrifting in along time. I think it's time!! Thanks for sharing and congrats on the weight loss!! XO Fran.

Great goodies!! I have to go thrifting with you GW has nothing good anymore. Those Spring flowers look great on that bread board. I have that exact punch tin nightlight clip...I have it in my kitchen.
There is a fellow blogger that mention to me that she is doing a craft show in Delware, Ohio in June. Do you know what show that is?

Firecracker Kid said...

Zumba! Just watching that video pepped me up. I love those baggy britches they wear. I used to wear clothes like that... lol. You can get the same set from the infomercial for $30. Reminds me of when we did aerobics in the 80's. I wanna Zumba!!

Tammy said...

WOW!!!! Great Finds! I wish I could find pottery like that at the thrift store/goodwills down here in South Carolina. I did hit the jackpot one day at Goodwill and found a bunch of pewter! Good luck with the sounds like fun! Tammy

Kendra said...

As usual, good score! I have a couple of those candle holders too, I really like them also. Big time score on the pottery pieces, congrats!

Hoping all is well and that you are completely healed from your lasic (that's how behind on keeping up with everyone that I am lately).

Keep up the good workouts!

You always find the greatest deals. I love the basket too cute. Congrats on the weight loss. You are doing so good.
