About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

The Joys of Frugality

Well, this frugal lil lady has been staying out of the stores lately but Tuesday Morning was just a calling my name so I stopped by yesterday. I was in the mood to pilfer so I stopped down the clearance aisle and found these sweet resin Christmas ornaments..... They were marked down to 49 cents but when the clerk rang them up, they were 29 cents each.... What a steal, huh? Need to visit another Tuesday Morning and pick up a few more. I can picture them tied on my Xmas gifts with some pretty cream colored ribbon, can't you? DOUBLECLICK ON THE PICS TO SEE MORE DETAIL.... And the next thing that went into my basket was this iron cookbook stand. I TRY SO HARD not to spatter my books up but I'm not usually successful...... Maybe this stand will help.... $4.99....
And that dormant calla lily that popped up in the midst of my split leaf philodendrum was crying for a pot of its own...... Wish granted for $7.99.....

I NEVER look at clothes at Tuesday Morning but like I said, I was in that sort of mood...... And I scored this cute and cool gown by Esprit for $15.99..... Would work as a swimsuit coverup as well...


But my favorite find was a magnetic notepad that says............ "Insanity: Grounds for divorce in some states. Grounds for marriage in all of them." :) Couldn't resist that one... $1.99
The best part of all is that I walked out with all these treasures for under $50.00..... Happy thrifting!!!!!
