Scored: girly thrifty goodies

It's been a while since I've done any shopping or thrifting but when I did I found some great deals. I've got them listed here in order of cost from really doggone thrifty to still pretty thrifty.

A local bed and breakfast went out of business and had a garage sale to sell off all the furnishings, dishware, housewares - you name it, it was for sale. By the time I got there, there wasn't much left but I did find this cake plate in the free pile.

The glue has yellowed but as long as you keep it covered up with treats who will ever know?

For now I have it covered with a paper doily and I'm contemplating using it as a plant stand until I need it for something edible.

I love some of the deals Michael's has in their dollar bins. I found these adorable Mary Engelbreit cupcake liners and since they were only a could I pass it up?

Look at this adorable pattern! I'm thinking these will be perfect for the Mad Tea Party. I'll have to visit The Ungourmet for the perfect cupcake recipe.

Next I found this little bit o' shine in the clearance aisle at Jo-ann. It's obviously from the bridal department, but it's a tiara, you think I could really leave it there?

And for this price?

Yep. That reads $1.97.
For now I'm making royalty out of my mossy bowl. When I'm not wearing it to do the dishes that is.

And those are my fantastic finds! All that girly, pretty fun for only $2.97! That alone makes me worthy to wear the tiara and be the bargain queen. :)

WOW! You did GREAT! Love the tiara...did you wear it out? The cake plate is great, too! I love vignettes with something raised on a cake plate in the arrangement. You'll have fun with that! Enjoy your week! ♥
