Silver Sunday & Mosaic Monday


I am so happy (as are a LOT of others) that Beth decided to continue Silver Sunday over at her blog, "Gypsy Fish"!

I also thought it would make a pretty mosaic for Mary's Mosaic Monday at her blog "Little Red House".



Early last week we had a pretty big blizzard. It was beautiful! We haven't had much snow this year but, we have had a lot of bitter cold weather. So, the snow was a welcomed relief to me. It meant warmer weather. Troy and the Princess were at my mom's house doing some project and , well....I headed to TJ Maxx! LOL It was some free time, and I didn't care if I had to drive 10 miles an hour, I was checking out TJ Maxx for clearance bargains! LOL

And, of course, I found a few! This is a silver candlestick. It is about 18" tall. And look at what I paid for it!





And I know no one wants to think of Christmas right now, but, I just couldn't pass this little pretty silver glazed Christmas tree ornament. And, once again, I could not pass it up with this price tag! (It was originally $5.99)




This little handled condiment type tray is a piece we have had for awhile now. It is used everyday. We keep flavored sugar coffee toppings in it and is always next to the coffee pot! LOL I paid $1.00 for it.





I was so excited to find this little box of silver standing napkin holders! The were brand new! Still in the box and individually plastic sealed bags. I paid $2.00 for the box of four.





I don't know why, but I seem to be in love with silver trivets! I can't pass one up. I have 6 or 7 of them now. I bought this one at Goodwill for $1.29.

  20. Wow - you're a great bargain hunter! I'm impressed. (And it unleashes an urge in me that's counter to my "pare down, live simply" trend).
