Thrifty "RED" finds...

I flipped my "LID" this week...

I'm linking up with Garage Sale'n over at DEBBIEDOOS...
Please skip on over to Debbie's and join in the party!

I thought I'd share a few of my SA finds from last week. After seeing all the awesome things many of you, my blogging friends where bringing home from Goodwill, Salvation Army and thrift stores, I went on a hunt. Wow, I really had so much fun and was able to find some really nice things at such great prices! Okay, I'm hooked; I would have never believed you could really find such pretty things in these stores. I have donated many of my items over the years and now that I understand the thrill of the hunt, I'm sure my things gave joy to someone else. A little lesson for me on giving and receiving was learned by shopping!

I'm so happy with the bargains I found, I wonder if "Home Goods" put out a missing person's report on me. Surely someone must have noticed that I have been missing in Action!

Don't fret "Home Goods"; I'll be back for a visit soon, sshhh, don't tell them I'm cheating on them.

The table is set for an quick; early morning coffee, come sit and have some banana bread or a coconut cupcake or two!

Temp-tations Oven-to-Table Set; found at "Salvation Army"...

The wicker serving holder for the Temptations Ovenware...

Isn't she sooo pretty... all "Cherry" and bright...

Notice the pink cupcake, I had to sneak it daughter's birthday was yesterday so I had done a little baking!

So pretty and in perfect condition; not bad for $3.99!

Like my top...isn't it snazzy? Pretty, hot, huh?

See the pretty "RED" candle holders, I found them at "Salvation Army" as well for just .99 cents...

I just love the "RED" translucent glass candle holders, they add just the right height to my little kitchen table...

Like my "RED" cupcake liners, I saw them at Jo-Ann Fabric and had to have them!

Yummy Coconut Cupcakes...

This one is covered in fresh coconut, my honey's favorite...

Blew out the "RED" candles but left the "Birthday" cupcake lit for a few more minutes...

Snuggled in together, so happy...

Thanks, Debbie, for hosting such a fun day!
