How cute!

Today is Monday, and I wanted to show what I found along, with others at Rhoda's Today's Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality

I found these cute little pumpkin S&P shakers recently at TJ Maxx. Love the Maxx! They also had the creamer and sugar bowl, but I didn't get those.

Next is my OWL Fan! I just love this cute idea! And I needed a fan in my sun room. This handsome guy was a "not so thrifty" treasure, but I just had to have him. I paid $89 for him, but I looked them up on line and they were $80. Then add shipping, and I figured I'd come out about the same, and this way I didn't have to wait. :) They come in all different shapes. Here's a link http://www.oaktreeent.com/fans_figurine.htm

and finally............

Look what I found! I'm so excited! He was at an antique store, and he Was a thrifty find. Thanks for looking. I loved having you!

Hi Donna, I love your thrifty and nifty (the owl fan) new found treasures. I can see why you could not resist the fan. How cute is that? I love the bunny planter too. Your vignette with the rooster and S&P's is very nice.

I just hit the follow button on your blog. I think you are doing a great job on your blog.

Hugs...Jeanne

Your owl fan is a hoot! Cutest thing I've ever seen. Your fall decorating is definitely putting me in the mood. Fall is in the air! Have a nice day. Twyla

Bill said...

You definitely brought home some fun items! It's beginning to look like Autumn in Blogland!
I'm sure we'll still have warm days and nights when the owl fan will come in very handy!

Hope your weekend goes well.

What a FANtastic fan! Loved it -- you asked about the Lime Curd -- I found mine with the jellys and jams -- however I've also seen them with pie fillings and with bakery pound cakes -- it's one of those items that they just stick all sorts of places -- like every grocery store I go to puts the fried onion rings in a different spot!
