A few thrifty finds

Is it just me or is this summer going by at break neck speed? Maybe it's because my "to do" list keeps growing instead of shrinking. Honestly, I am working hard at completing those projects I saved until  summer but every time I set down to enjoy  a little blog surfing, I see all these wonderful things going on and I just have to add them to my list.

That being said, I decided to take a little break today and go north across the line into N.C. in search of cooler air. I not only found cooler air, I found. . .  you guessed it, some fun thrift shops.

There were so many wonderful things but I was good and only brought home a few. The little candle snuffer was just 50 cents. It should help with the wall candle sconces. It was either buy this or grow taller so I can blow them out.

I love these watermelon placemats. There were only 5 but they were just $2.50 and I'm going to use them to make more pillows for the front porch. 

The toile memo board is already up and ready for use. It seems I need memos and sticky notes more and more. Can you buy them by the truck load? With the aging of America, maybe that's something I should buy stock in.
Glad you dropped by and y'all come back! I'm linking to Thrifty Things Friday  Come join the fun!
