Thrifty Things Friday #42


Hi everyone!

Linens, I love them and love them even more when I can find major great prices on them! Today I am showing you some brand NEW linens I bought a couple of weeks ago.

This set of two natural color napkins were in the Christmas clearance items at Target. I bought the set for .80 cents. The pretty natural color with the silver gray stitching will be perfect for anytime.

napkinsAnd then a stop at the CTS to look for Christmas markdowns. I ended up getting some great curtains! I like to kind of redo my bedroom from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter. Well, this past Fall I never really got the chance. Since our bedroom is painted a very pale yellow, it really acts like a neutral color and it is easy to decorate around. So, I bought 3 sets of these rust/brown/gold striped drapes to hang up to give the room the warm feel that I like for the cooler months. It instantly changes the look of the room and I really like to be able to do that a couple of times a year and not spend lots of money. So, I was able to change out my curtains for only $1.98 a window….. why not?

IMG_0146  I bought a deep russet red Fall tablecloth with embroidered Maple leaves on it for $2.48.

IMG_0148-tileThe above orange/yellow/beige curtain for a whopping .58 cents will be so fun made into Summer napkins and a runner!

IMG_0147-tileAnd the blue and green curtain was a $1.48. Just think of curtain bargains like this as big pieces of home decor fabric!

So, that was my latest linen thrift finds! So much fun!!

Now, let’s check out some of last week’s party posts!

happythumb_thumb[1]I want to apologize to those of you that did not get a comment from me on last week’s party links. I try very hard to make sure I visit every one of the people who link up to this party and to leave a comment. For some lovely reason, Blogger has really been screwing around and would freeze me out of certain blogs. I was relieved to know that I wasn’t the only one having this issue. We have 2 laptops and a PC and I had frantically tried all three with no success. I even went over to my mom’s and tried her computer. I, at least, found out it wasn’t just a problem at my end. Don’t you just love when Blogger messes with us! Argggh! Let’s hope the problem is resolved soon!

Please remember to Link back to this party on your post. I never feature a post that is not linked to Thrifty Things Friday.

Okay, let’s get this thrifty show on the road!

  1. Oh Diann, I know you always try to visit.
    Love your bargains, and I am jealous. I haven't been to CTS in over 5 weeks, and I am itching to go. I hoped this week, but I am down again and on antib's!
    Those napkins are sweet, and yes, the curtains will make great napkins. I bought a bunch of them last Spring to do just that, but the sewing instinct in me seems to be on hiatus!
    Thanks for hosting!

  2. Hmm, tried to link up, but instead I am getting a message from the owner of Linky tools. Don't know what's up with that!
    I will try again later.

  3. I have never, ever seen prices like that. I sure wish there was a store like that around here. I'm jealous of your good buys but I'm trying to let it go and be happy for you.

  4. The local stores here do NOT have such GREAT markdowns on linens or curtains. But I was able to pick up a shirt marked down 90% to $5.00. Made my day. Your finds are terrific. Love the napkins you got. I'm a big cloth napkin gal. LOVE them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have to constantly fight my hubby, he wants to use paper.

  19. What great stuff Diann! I think I have an addiction to cloth napkins. They take up two drawers in my guest bedroom. I always have a certain route when I go looking for the bargains. I head to the dishware first, then the linens, then the clothing, then the books.

    I had fun seeking out my bargains, and even more fun showing them off on Thrifty Things Friday!~Ames♥
