HALLOWEEN FAVORITES

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Thank you so much to all of you who participated in the 1st Junkin Finds!  It was so much fun!!  The linky is still up and if you haven't had a chance to check out the posts I hope you will do so!  

Since it's the last weekend of October and Halloween I wanted to show you some more of my decorations.  I had so many comments about my 'cubbies' I thought I would give you another look!
These are CD holders stacked together!  
They make the best display for all my 'little' things
Right now they are decorated for Fall/Halloween
Next week the Halloween items will be replaced with the Thanksgiving decorations
Many of the fall items will remain until after Thanksgiving
and then you know what happens??  
CHRISTMAS!

 
A closer look at some of the Halloween decorations
These are S & P's just like the hat and shoe above
They make awesome little decorations!
 These two are a couple of my favorite Halloween decorations!
This is not Halloween but was a souvenir from Montreal several years ago on an October trip!
Many of you remarked on the pumpkin plate from the Pumpkin Party held last week.  I also have this matching eggplant plate.
The pumpkin plate was found at a yard sale
Months later this was found at Tuesday Morning marked down to 70 cents!!  How I wish I could find two more! 

I hope everyone will have a safe and fun Halloween!

I'm joining Laurie

JUNKIN FINDS #1

Thursday, October 28, 2010

WELCOME TO JUNKIN FINDS LINKY PARTY!


I am so excited to be hosting this fun party!  

Show me your junk, your thrifty finds, flea market bargains, yard sale deals and those curb shopping freebies!  

Let's get started!  Today I'm showing you a few of my thrifty finds!

I found these two dishes at the Value Village in Texas the day before I left.  Love the red rim! 
 These will look great on a Christmas table and will go with some Kings Crown wine glasses I have!  They were only $2.97 for the two of them! 

I also found this plate at the same VV
Made by Johnson Bros
I love this pattern and only 60 cents!!

These cute little egg cups were 35 cents each and found at a Goodwill 

This spider web ornament was in a grab bag of goodies
so it cost pennies!! 

So now....SHOW ME YOUR JUNK!!

Can't wait to see what you have found! 

Please remember to link up your post and not your blog!

THRIFTY AND BOO-TIFUL TABLE

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

**It is rainy and stormy here in Ga so flash photos were a must**


This is my first Halloween tablescape!
It was so much fun to put together!  Inspired by some plates found at a thrift (of course) this is a tablescape using only thrifty finds! 
This tablescape was inspired by the cute desert plates found at the thrift store
The plates feature ghosts so that's the theme
I started with a white charger, black plate & the Halloween plate
Orange napkins found again at the thrift topped with a 'ghost'
Where is the silver ware??
Tucked into these cute black witches shoes
These were on clearance after Halloween last year
Each place has a crow wine glass
The centerpiece features one of my favorite decorations
This Ghost with a little peek-a-boo!
A closer look!  
 Another clearance item (75%) from
Cracker Barrel several years ago!
This cute ghost dish was found a few weeks ago thrifting sitting on a tea towel found in a Texas thrift
I have added a few vintage items to the table
Cute sheet music for 50 cents
Black depression glass creamer
Black & white vintage Pyrex 

Vintage black vase 
with an orange candle 

I am very happy with my Halloween table!!

I hope you will join me and look at all the 
Boo-tiful tablescapes at Susan's
Between Naps on The Porch

and also visit Suzanne




DON'T FORGET MY FIRST JUNKIN FINDS PARTAY
The link will be up Friday morning!  Hope to see you there!
 
Always,
Linda
