Holiday Thrifting!

I am always on the lookout for Seasonal items at the thrift shops!  
Look at these great shamrock coasters!  They will be perfect for a St. Patricks day table and for only $2

Look at these pretty Christmas items! 
The hand made pot holders were .49 each
and the cute glasses were only $1
I love the vintage design!

My favorite find of the week
Is this adorable Crate & Barrel coffee mug
That spider is worth the .79 cents I paid!

Please remember this is Breast Cancer Awarness month!

UPDATE
I am in Texas and it looks like I will be here for several weeks.  My Mom has been having some health issues and the Dr's are running tests.  She has some inflammation they are treating and the side effects from the drugs are really affecting her. She is doing a bit better but until she is much better I will be here.  I will continue to post and I'm reading blogs and commenting as I can!  Thanks for your support as always!

Joining 

Hugs,
Linda

Holiday decorations are used for such a short period of time, it's great to find things inexpensively. Hope Mom feels better soon.

I think the Christmas glasses are my favorite....Could be because I have a Christmas birthday ?!?

Wishing your mother healing and a return to health. How blessed she is to have you with her at this challenging time.

Sounds like you will be there awhile and I think it is the right thing to do - you will never be sorry.

I like the Christmas glasses.

Miss you.

You and your sweet mom take care! I love that spider mug! Years ago my middle daughter bought me a coffee mug that has a funny witch on it and says "Life's a Witch!" I love it!
Your thrift finds are so cool.
