$2.00 Tuesday


Good morning all!  Yes we made it past Monday.. phew… and today is a great day for a $2.00 Tuesday post.   Last week while at work I was listening to Pandora Sade station and this particular song came on.. I paused for a few to divulge the tune and pay attention to the lyrics.   The tune captured me and when he started singing, I immediately fell in love with it and had to have it.  Sure, I could have done the “itune” thing and download the song… but I’m old school.. I want the CD.  I visited my trusty site half.com and found it.  Of course you know I was thrilled when the price was $1.99.  It came just in time, because me and hubby are headed on a vacay to the carribbean in a couple weeks, so this cd is definitely going on the mp3 to play while sailing on the blue seas.  (and yes, the entire cd is a winner, yippeee)

I’ve been ordering music from that site for over 20 years and have found some really good music at excellent prices.  So if you’re ever looking for cds, check out that site.  Moving along on the terrific $2.00 Tuesday post.. I definitely am giving “High Fives” because you guys have found some really fantastic bargains.

My twin, Amina, found this little red hot number and was thrilled.  She snagged this yummy cranberry color mini crockpot, and it’s the perfect for her kitchen decor.


She loves entertaining (especially now that Game of Thrones is back) and it’s going to come in handy for serving warm dips.  It was in mint condition. Kudos to you Amina!


Next up is this awesome find that my insta-buddy @adesignerathome found…  A brass planter and her plant looks quite happy in it.  We all know how pricey large planters can be so this was an excellent find!



Then Linda over at LindaGLovingHome found a pair of brass candlesticks.  She polished them up,  found some glass votive holders, attached corks to the bottom, added a bit of glam and voila!  Her new creation – and perfection combination of crystal and brass – tealight candlesticks  – aren’t they sweet!!



Another fantastic find was this mid-century bar caddy another insta-buddy  @midcentury_experience found.  I love how it’s styled – simply perfect with the barware.   Martinis anyone??   High five on this!


Next up is this cute frame my FBF, Machelle, who’s over at the facebook group Capital City Thrifters.  She added her own little bling to it and now it’s sitting pretty!


So you see.. there are “Many Waters” to tread in the sea of thrifting.  We are out here finding all kinds of terrific bargains to use in our homes and hope this inspires you.  Thanks to everyone for playing along and allowing me to feature your picture.  After all, it’s not what it costs, but it’s how you style it.  Happy hunting!  And enjoy thrifting your house into a home!!  I hope you enjoyed my little tune for your listening pleasure and I’ll see you when I return.

Remember, while you’re out there and find your piece.. don’t forget to hashtag #urthriftygirlfinds, or send me a pic to have it featured.

Until next time — Smooches!
