Thrifty Things Friday #139

Hi everyone!
TTF CoHost 11
I can’t believe that Christmas is less than a week away! 2014 is right around the corner!
For the past gazillion years, each time my mom and I go on our Girls Shopping Weekend, we start off our adventure by having lunch at Cracker Barrel. And for past few years, I have been buying pieces of this beautiful red cardinal tableware. I just love them!
Well, this year when we stopped, they didn’t have any of this pattern. I was so disappointed! However, I did find this set of Salt and Pepper shakers to add to my collection.
I thought they were sweet.
They were .99 cents each however, they rang up half off a, .49 cents each! I thought it was a nice little bargain!
Next week’s party will be after Christmas so, please feel free to share a gift you received with all of us! Of course, a Thrifty post is always welcomed!
Everyone enjoy your holiday, be safe and be happy!

    I love Cracker Barrel. That was a very pretty pattern. Maybe Replacements Unlimited..I think thats the name of the Co. may just be Replacements....may carry that pattern.
    Thanks for hosting. Maybe you guys can join me for Rednesday Wednesday

  8. Oh Diann....What a sweet Cardinal dish set! My MIL would die for those. Who knew they were at CB! They do have the sweetest things. And how fortunate you were to find the cardinals, and on SALE too!!

    Wishing you and yours the most blessed and joyous Christmas!

  9. The cardinal dinnerware is beautiful! I love the S&P shakers - they are adorable!! Thank you for hosting :) Merry Christmas!

  10. I wonder if Cracker Barrel did not produce that pattern this year? It's too bad because it is so pretty. I love the little cardinal s&p!!! So cute. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas!
    Big Hugs,

  11. Lucky you - adding to your set at a bargain price!
    And to build it as you build memories with family - priceless.

  12. Your dishes are so sweet, it's too bad that they didn't have any more for you to add to your collection. The salt and pepper shakers are adorable and fit right in. Thanks for hosting Diann and Linda and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

  13. I LOVE red birds this time of year.

  14. Thank you so much for hosting... wishing you, Linda and your families a very Merry Christmas also.... Cathy

  15. Your Cardinal dishes are beautiful Diann! the little birds were a great deal and will be a sweet addition. I don't have any dishes to match, but I have a set of the little bird S&P shakers. I bought mine at a damaged goods store. Not exactly like yours, but very similar. Have a very wonderful Christmas and thanks for hosting!
