Thrifty Things Friday #62

Hi everyone!

If you have read my Tuesday post you know that I have been at our cabin for the past two weeks. We will be home this weekend. That is the reason I haven’t visited lately. I will be spending a big chunk of time catching up with all of you and the thriftiness that you have shared here in the past couple of weeks!

I haven’t visited any posts from last week so, I can’t feature anyone.  I will resume that next week.

While I have been camping, I have managed to stop at some yard sales and do a little thrifting. I know, shocking huh? LOL

At one yard sales I found these cute ceramic pillar candle holders.


I bought the 6 the lady had.


I don’t think she ever used them.


All of them still have their price tags on them! They were from Bath & Body Works and were originally $9.00 each! yikes!


I bought all 6 for $1.00! Woohoo! I think they will be so pretty lined up with candles on them on a buffet or the dining room table. Even just clustered together would look nice.

Now, on to your thriftiness

I hope you are having a fantastic day!


  1. Girl you STOLE those for $1. I have seen those at Bath and Body around Christmas time......GOOD DEAL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Hi Diann,

  3. I have been "TRYING for weeks" to link into your party BUT when I go to the final step to link my picture "IT Refuses me"???

  4. What cute candle holders! I was thrifty this'll be proud of me! heehee! Enjoy your week! We are in Florida now and I'm so glad to be back!

  5. Oh my goodness..such fab finds and what a bargain!! Thanks for hosting and having me again!! Have a great Friday.

  6. Now that is a thrifty deal. All of them for $1! Glad you have had a bit of time away to your cabin. It's always nice to get away from the every day grind. I sent you a guest post quite a while ago. Not sure if you ever received it. It was kind of a spoof on being thrifty. May not be one that you would want to use. I posted it in Windows Writer and then e-mailed it to you. Maybe it didn't work. Thanks for hosting.

  7. Wow, they will be great for Christmas! Great deal!

  8. Forgot to thank you for hosting!

  9. I think you got a great buy on the candle pillars. Lots of ways to use them for decorating. Great for an outdoor table for an evening cook out.

  10. You really scored on those candle holders!

    There's so much you could do with them - they would even work with a Red, White and Blue theme for 4th of July!!


  11. Oh Diann, you can have a cabin break! This blogging, I have found could be a 365 day a year gig.

  12. What a great buy!I love your ideas for displaying them. Thanks for hosting.

  13. Thanks for hosting! I passed up a garage tonight because I was late for a kickball game. Never again! We didn't even start on time. The whole time I was wondering what goodies I would have found.
