Thrifty Things!

Many of you are starting to yearn for Fall!
I'm not quite there yet but looks like my thirfting is saying something different! 
Here are my latest thrifty finds!
These large chargers are going to be perfect for so many tablescapes. The brown band on the plate is great for fall!
Speaking of Fall....I found this beautiful table runner with the Kohl's tag still on it.
  I know this will be used soon in a tablescape~

To finish my 'fall' thrifting I found this gravy boat with attached plate.  This is Metlox china in the  Woodland Gold pattern.  I have been collecting this pattern for a couple of years now and this addition is perfect for Thanksgiving! 

The thrift shop I bought all these items at is one that supports Battered Women.  I donate things all the time and usually buy a few items also.
All my 'fall finds' cost a total of $3
yes they have great prices! 

I'm joining
and 

Hugs,
Linda

Oh the joys of not knowing what you will find thrifting and then creating a home out of your finds! Love it!

Rebecca said...

Linda, those are ALL really great fall finds! They remind me of a few fall pieces I have on hand. (I really don't need to go out searching for more -- but I probably will succumb to the urge one of these days....)

Linda-
Congrats! You are the winner of the set of 3 nautical pillows at Uptown Acorn. Please go to my blog and leave a comment with your mailing address. I will get them in the mail as soon as I can. We are dealing with Hurricane Isaac. www.uptownacorn.blogspot.com

Hi Linda! I'm so far behind on what everyone is doing in blogland, so I had to go way back in time to see what you found at the WLYS. So glad you got that McCoy planter! Oh, and I love the creamers and sugars in the cubbies!
I'm not ready for Fall, just cooler temps. It's been such a hot summer, trapped in the A/C, that I feel like I totally missed summer!
Have a great week!
Carol

Linda those are nice big plates. Can't want to see what you do with them! I can't understand why people let go of such nice things. That runner has to be fairly new. Good thing you are rescueing it!~Ames

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Love that table runner! It is definitely starting to look like fall already here!

So pretty and so thrifty! You always find the neatest items! Thanks for sharing at Potpourri Friday

Diann said...

Oh, I LOVE that table runner! All the treasures are great and not to mention a fantastic price! That is the same with me regarding where I donate. A thrift store close to us helps women and children who are running from abusive homes. they can go into the store and get the things they need for free. this is the only place we donate to now. Thank you for joining us at TTF and have a terrific day!
