thrifty thursday

it has been awhile
since i posted a
thrifty thursday post.

here are my latest finds;
the booties from a consignment store
and sweater from goodwill. :)

these (nine west) black booties
 yeah, the camera phone
didn't do a great job!
anyway these black booties are awesome!
i mean they are 
nine west and leather!
i have a pair of suede grey ones from target
and really wanted a pair of black...
these were 8.99
i had credit at this consignment store-
so i paid nothing!
cannot beat that in my book!


this (gap) grey and black paisley cardigan
from goodwill for 4.99
gotta love my cardis! :)

have you been doing any
thrifting lately?
what did you get?
or do you even shop
at thrift stores?

on this rainy thursday
i leave you with this thought;


“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ”
nelson mandela

may you share you beautiful smile
with others today
and shine your light!


have a wonderful day!

Nice! My favorite find of this season is a pair of Italian red leather loafers that I found on Etsy for $25--they were brand new. I can wear them with almost everything!

Last week, hubby was just headed out with the boys . . . to drive 10 miles to the mall . . . to look for a pair of tennis shoes for 12 year old son.

15 year old daughter says, "You should stop at the consignment store down the street first." (Seriously about 3 blocks from home.)

A few minutes later Papa calls to ask what my consignment number was (to use my credit on acct.)

YES! He bought a nice pair of Nike tennis shoes for about $8.00. Saved over $25 on the shoes . . . plus gas to drive to the city . . . plus time.

So thankful that dear teen daughter LOVES to shop at thrift stores . . . and tells her Papa to, too.

Shining my smile over to you . . . on this dreary grey day.
