How has your week been? I know a lot of you had kids going back to school already. The Princess has another week and half before heading back. So, we decided to head up to our cabin for the holiday weekend and the last trip before school starts. What are you plans for the holiday weekend?
On to some thriftiness. These past several days have very busy around here. At the end of a couple of our market days, the produce vendors have been loading all of us other vendors down with fresh veggies. Most of the produce has spots or just won’t be fresh enough for the produce vendors next Farmer’s Market. So, that mean everything needs to be dealt with ASAP.
With such a wonderful blessing of these treasures, I have been canning, pickling and freezing my little ‘ol heart out this week. When the veggie crops come in, you almost have to drop everything else going on in your life and dedicate your time to dealing with the bounty. But, I know I will be very happy I did all this work when winter rolls around.
Such gorgeous beauty! All of this will be heading up to the cabin with us this weekend to share with the rest of my family. I also received some beautiful fruit (watermelons, cantaloupe, strawberries and peaches….YUM). We are really looking forward to enjoying a relaxing getaway with all of the family. We have so much fun when we are all together.
Last week I showed you the Autumn floral arrangements I picked up at the thrift store. Today I am showing you a couple of the other Autumn treasures I picked up.
And it still had the original Pier 1 price tag on it for $8.00. As you can see, it was marked for $1.49 and then I got an additional 25% off of that. I thought it was a good deal for $1.11.
And I like this small handled basket with the copper details. It too had the original price tag on it from Bath and Body Works for $10.00. I paid .96 cents for it (after the markdown). I think it is perfect for a small Fall floral arrangement.
Now, for some fun features from last week.
Thank you ladies for sharing such wonderful things with us last week! I hope you will grab the “I was featured” button above for your blog!
Okay, on with the party!
