A couple of Red finds!

Well, all day today I was racing around trying to get together all my material for the couponing class I am teaching tomorrow (Wednesday) night. I hope I am prepared! And I hope all the ladies at church learn a bunch of shortcuts and tips for couponing. Wish me luck!

Anyway, I had planned on displaying my lovely new thrifty store finds however, the day got away from me.

This first red item, I actually paid FULL thrift store sticker price! Not to mention, it was a high price for me at the thrifty store...$6.99! After I left the store, I had to go sit down and take long deep breaths! LOL

When I get a better picture, I will show it again. so, please forgive the fact that it is still folded and not in good light.

This is my red satin table runner with embroidered butterflies on it. All the butterflies are embroidered in gold and then 'colored in" with a different color floss. They look so pretty in person. The pictures do not do them justice!

And this is a set of 4 deep red iridescent placemats with stitched leafs on them. The set of 4 cost $1.50
