I am so excited to join Diann for Thrifty Things Friday.  Since I've been doing Grandma duty I've not done much thrifting but did find a 
few Easter items this week!

I found this bunny planter for $1
I think it was a ceramic class project but very cute so home it came
Charlie had to check it out

This pretty ceramic egg was only .50

I love these place mats!  I don't have much purple however when you put gingham, rick rack and embroidered flowers on place mats & they only cost $1 
Well I will find some plates to make a tablescape  for sure!
So springy!

Be sure to go by Diann's blog and check out all the other Thrifty Things

Now for a Tiger update!  He is doing great and is two weeks old!  What a doll and such a good baby.  Sara & Blake are wonderful parents and I'm a lucky Grandma!

Of all the pretties you pictured on this post, I love the last one best! He is a doll!!!

C'est moi Claudette said...

Oh that silly Charlie boy. And look at "silly" but beautiful baby in green.
What a Tiger, love that name. Very masculine like Colt, my son's name. He'll grow to be so confident with that name.
Happy happy Easter my dear friend, Grandma ; )
Love Me

Hi Linda!
I guess you know that Charlie and Tiger are stealing the show! Do love your thrifty finds too.

I hope that you have a joyous Easter and enjoy your first one as Grandma to your little Tiger.

I really like the purple placemats. It would be different to see a purple tablescape. Curious about it! Tiger is so sweet! Have a nice Easter week-end!

Ames said...

What a cutie he is. His hair gives him such personality!
Those are nice finds Linda. I would love to find the "just right" bunny. Haven't had any luck.
Babysitting tomorrow. I'm so excited!~Ames

Susan said...

Hi Linda....All your decorations are very sweet but I like the little LIVING Easter bunn bunn the best. Ohhhhh, he is the CUTEST! What a sweet, darling, beautiful baby. You are one lucky Grammie. I don't even HAVE to say Happy Easter because Easter came early for you, Linda, and for all your family, with the darling baby boy. Anyway, HAPPY EASTER TO ALL! Susan
