Thrifty Love {link party #44}

Friday, September 14, 2012

Hi friends welcome back for Thrifty Love! Were you able to make it out for some thrifting this week? I quickly want to encourage you to check out this post about my 1000 followers giveaway! I am approaching 1000 followers (only 5 away!) and when I get there I want to have a BIG giveaway. I am looking for prizes so if you want to donate let me know. All the details can be found over HERE. I'd love to include some of my thrifty friends!

Here's the bit of haul I was able to snag this week. I was pretty excited to find the jars! I have been looking at decorative jars for some time now. They are something I want to include in my office/craft room makeover. The best deal I've found so far is at Walmart for about $7-12 for a small one. These two are HUGE and I got both for $6.34! The big one has to be a 3 or 4 gallon! Also pictured are a cute skirt, a nice sized ceramic pumpkin and a large, nice laptop bag.
Ever kick yourself for not picking something up? That was me this week. I found these really neat medical models of the fetus in utero. There were 6 and each at a different stage. They wanted ten bucks for all 6 and I passed them up. Came home and looked them up and they are going for about $89 a PIECE! That's over $500 for the set! UGH!!! I went back and yep you betcha they were GONE!

Now for some features from last week!
Island Rustic shares the makeover of this
most wonderful wagon. I LOVE it!!!

Sustainable | Slow | Stylish brings us these pretty awesome bowls.
