Thrifty Thursday


I took a break from staining last Saturday and visited the Summer Fling at West Side United Church. They served a wonderful full breakfast - eggs over easy, bacon, toast with the Pastor's homemade strawberry jam, juice and tea or coffee. Yum! I haven't eaten a breakfast like that in many months. I love going there because I see so many of my old friends and neighbours.
.
They also had a great yard sale. Here's what I picked up.
.


Two pretty necklaces for $1 each. See the bead details in Pic #2.














.

Six vintage glasses for $1..


Paris keychain for $1 and ceramic plaque for $2.


Cancer (and my birthstone) phone or purse charm, cute little Cameo pin and small gold hoops for 25 cents each..


And to add to my addiction, I bought these 22 fairly recent copies of Canadian Home and Garden magazine for $2. Lots of good decorating ideas..


AND 47 older (1998 to 2006) copies of Canadian Gardening for $3; but it doesn't matter how old the gardening magazine right? Gardens never go out of style!.

.

Now, let's go check out Bloggeritaville for other Thrifty Thursday finds.

I think it's cute that you have so many magazines...my husband let's me go crazy with plants because he also says there are worse addictions.
