THRIFT ADDICTION THURSDAY #3 - ROSS Continued, and some other thrifty thaaangs!


Yes, we have taken the kiddos for a short Disney excursion this week.  We've been having lots of fun!   We got to see the new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom, and a few things that are not new to the parks, but new to us because we had never been to them before.

Because of my Disney trip, I haven't done any thrift shopping this week, so my THRIFT ADDICTION THURSDAY is a mixture of some previous thrifty finds!

So, without further ado....onto the bargains!!!

First up is this pretty glass pitcher!   I got this at Ross on clearance for $6.99.  

I had a peach-colored pitcher that I had bought previously and was having to use that at all my tables, even if it didn't match.  

I love this glass one because it will go with so much!    I thought it was pretty and it looked really nice at our table with lemon slices in it to create the "gold" effect with our purple and gold theme!   

It is not super fancy, but totally goes with everything! 


Next up, I found these adorable red and white polka dot these adorable plate trays!!!

These are going to be great for my Valentine's Day table!  

This is also a Ross find!  4 plates were $7.98!   I bought 2 sets.  I also love these little black plate holders...I actually had bought some black and white polka dotted sets of these plates as well. 

So now, I have 4 of these cute little black plate holders.  I'm not sure what I will do with them yet, but I'm looking forward to doing something with them at one of our Sunday Family Dinners where it's just the 4 of us.  =D


Next up, I found this very cute Flower petal bowl at our church's local thrift store!   It actually looks a little more like a plate than a bowl with this angle I took it in, but it's a bowl.  This was such a cute find, and I sure wish they had more of them, because I just loved it.   

It had no price on it, so when I went to check out with some other things, I talked to the girl, who was starting to know me pretty well since I'm in there so much!   I told her there was no price on this one and she actually said "no charge!"   So I got it for FREE!   So happy!  I just love it!


Another thing I was able to acquire while out thrift shopping was this adorable flip-flop tray with white and little pink flowers.

 It was just 2 dollars and I thought it was so cute maybe for a summer girls tea or something like that. It definitely was a bargain, in my opinion. 

And, last but not least, I found this very cute peach and white flowered tray! 

I thought this was so cute for a peach-colored tablescape, which I am currently collecting for. I thought it would be very fun for ladies breakfast or something for springtime. 


I have been very very excited about the bargains that I have found lately. And I hope to find many more as the budget allows... Haha.
