thrifty thursday

I'm trying something new today - uploading photos with the "blog this" button in picassa. I'm also toying with the idea of posting thrift finds on Thursdays. We'll see how it goes.

I received a wonderful package the other day from Susie Sunshine. She'd done a little thrifting herself and in it was some great shelf edging. My kitchen shelves were dressed in some plastic, faux-lace edging that was cute. In fact, I liked it until I opened the package from Angie.



Inside was this edging. Suddenly the plastic stuff was horrid. I can't imagine anything going more perfectly with our dishes. And there's a ton of it, so I'll be able to do all the shelves with some extra for future replacements. Susie, you win the thrifty award!


In keeping with the whole thrifty theme today I wanted to let you all know about a great website I found. Check out http://www.thethriftyshopper.com/ . Just enter your zip code and viola! All the thrifty goodness in your area with addresses and store hours to boot! I should have plugged in some zip codes of places I stayed on vacation. Next year...

Part of what makes thrifting so fun is finding something that you know will be perfect for a friend.
So glad you like it!

I've never seen cupboards with knickers on - That really is cute!
I can't get in to that site - they want a user name and password for it.

That edging is so pretty! I've seen lace before which I like but this is even better,. and it goes so well with your dishes.
