Well good thing I went and did a little thrifting last week because this week, I have been down for the count. Isn’t Fall and Spring the worst times for colds! One day it is warm, the next cold then rainy. A body just doesn’t have time to acclimatize. So, I am sitting her in pj’s, no makeup, scraggly ponytail, hot herbal tea and a pile of Kleenex. TMI huh?
For the last couple of years, I have been making it a point to stop by both Dollar General and Family Dollar at the end of September. I discovered that both of these stores have some really good end of the season clearance prices on a lot of things.
Well, I wasn’t disappointed when I popped in last week. I bought these fun table linens.
I just thought they were so fun and for a grand total of $1.80, I just couldn’t pass them by. They had several other styles of linens. I picked up a blue and white and a set of red and white placemats for .80 cents (for a set of 4). They are definitely more Summerish. But, the animal prints did not say summer to me at all.
For some reason some folks have had trouble leaving comments. Thank you to my friend Pat, because I was totally unaware of this. I also received an email from another follower stating the same thing. She had wanted to sign up for the giveaway so, I manually added her to my list. Who knows, probably those nasty internet Gremlins messing with us again!
I have several more giveaways coming up so, if you have a problem commenting, please send me an email and I will add you to the list of entries.
Now the winner of the UPrinting 250 flyer giveaway is………
Thank you to UPrinting for sponsoring this giveaway!

My friend Linda from Coastal Charm hosts a wonderful weekly party called Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. This week she talked about some etiquette regarding joining linky parties. And she talks about the frustration of the hostess of the party. It takes time to put together a linky party (and money) and we do it because we think it is fun and want others to have a place to show off their posts. Not leaving a link back to this party on your post is a rude thing to do to the hostess and to other folks that are joining the party. If you are new to joining parties or blogging and just are not sure how to do it, (a link back) please don’t hesitate to send us an email. We were all new once and needed to learn how to do things.
I encourage you to stop by Linda’s post HERE and check it out!
Don’t forget, this Saturday (Oct. 1) is this month’s Thrifty Tablescape party! I hope you will join the fun!
