Thrifty Things Friday #24


Hi everyone!

Before we start, I  have a question for you. As you obviously know (since you are here) I generally post this party on Thursday. And I also usually post it early on Thursday. But, it is a Friday party. The reason I post early is, well, actually a couple of reasons, first, I don’t want to forget to post it. I have done that before. But, I could, of course, just schedule it to go up at a certain time. Second reason is I know that Friday’s can be hectic. Everyone is getting ready for the weekend. And some bloggers take the weekend off so the speak. So, this gives them the chance to get their Friday post up and linked and not have to worry about it any more. And to be honest, I have been trying to get all my Friday, Saturday and Sunday posts all done and scheduled to be posted so I can just enjoy the weekend with my family. Blogging can consume all your time without you even realizing it. So, I have been working on setting myself some boundaries. Does that make sense?

So, my question is, do you like this Friday party going live early? Or would you prefer it going up Friday morning?

Okay, we can get on with the party now! Thanks everyone!

Sometimes you just see something and are just drawn to it. That is what happened to this pretty yellow Fall tureen. It was marked $5.99 but, it was 50% off day. So, I just couldn’t pass it up at $2.99. I love tureens and thought this would be a fun addition to my collection.

6-11 bargains 003 I love all my white ironstone tureens but, sometimes you want just a punch of color. Something different.

6-11 bargains 004And with fall upon us, it seemed perfect.6-11 bargains 005 It is a large tureen so, I am seeing it filled with chili and having friends over. Some homemade bread and we have a perfect cold weather meal.

6-11 bargains 007There was no ladle but, I have a couple extra ones that are very large.

  5. Hi Diann,
    I really like it on Thursday. I put mine on then too because Friday gets busy and hubs doesn't care to stare at my back on the computer all weekend. I try to get a jump start and read them Thurs. and Friday. Lovely soup tureen! I love these and I love soup. Perfect for fall. Thanks for having us!

  6. Love the soup tureen and what an incredible price! I just made homemade turkey soup with my first ever try at homemade noodles and I would have loved to have that tureen to serve it in! My vote is for Thursday too just because Fridays are busy for me.

  9. Great find. Maybe I'd make soup if I had one?

    I'm all for a party starting early..... especially when I don't really have to do any work! :)

  10. Your fall tureen is lovely. I love the party starting early on Thursday. Heck, I just love a good party!

  11. I can't get over the prices at your thrift stores. And 1/2 off too!!! Our thrift stores are going sky high with their prices. A tureen like that would probably be $8-$10 with NO discounts. I want to thrift with you :-)

  13. Diann, that tureen is gorgeous...can't complain too much about the price, either! I love the six white tureens I have, but the colored ones are just as dear...sometimes that added color is just what my table needs.

  14. Diann, I love that your party goes up Thursday evening. Since I only blog during the weekdays in the evenings, it works best for me to post then. Otherwise, I wouldn't post until Friday evening or maybe Saturday. That's beyond fashionably late to the party!

    Your tureen is something else! I can't believe the super prices your thrifts have. $5.99 would have been the half off price around here, if we were lucky.

  15. Fabulous soup tureen, Diann. I would have scooped that up in a second, too.

    Regarding the party, I think you should just keep doing it the way you ahve been----putting it up on Thursday. Sometimes I don't post til evening but that's fine, too.

    Take care, and thanks for hosting. It's so much fun! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

  19. I like the party starting on Thursday! So used to it starting on Thursday & love being able to get my post up before bed.

  20. Since you have not seen much of me this summer, my vote shouldn't weigh as heavily but I would prefer later Thursday, maybe after 3pm? You can schedule it. I do with most of my posts, unless I am rushing to finish.
    There are a few other Thursday thrift parties and I like to have a fresh post for you. And during summer months Friday itself is for treasure hunting.

    I do not think I even have a tureen! I can't recall one at my mom's either.

  21. What a steal that tureen was! You find such great deals. Today I saw a teapot with leaves on it, missing its lid. I managed to walk away from it.

  23. Diann I love your new tureen! This was a great find! I like the party going live on Thur which is when I try to link up. Sometimes I'm late (like today) but whatever you decide will be fine with me! Hugs, Linda
