Thrifty Thursday - Valentine Style

First, I want to thank everyone that came by yesterday to wish me a Happy Birthday! You're all are very sweet!
Secondly, today, Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville, is hosting Thrifty Thursday. Thanks, Leigh! Be sure to go over there and take a look at everyone's thrifty finds. Since I never showed you my Valentine's decor (I didn't do much this year), I thought I'd show you a little of it now...better late than never, right? Almost everything I'm showing you came from a thrift store or yard sale.

I picked this up at an antique store last year, and gave it to my mom, who collects angels. It goes with the theme I'm doing today, so I decided to include it. I think it's a topper.

This one is kind of similar, but I kept this one.

This is a vintage candle holder. I never bothered putting a candle in it this year, sorry!

And then another cupid(?).

This bowl came from a thrift store, and the angel from a yard sale. The cherries were Pier 1 clearance many years ago.

And finally, I picked this little devil up at a yard sale last summer.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Leigh said...

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GIRL! I hope you had a good one!

Secondly, Thanks for playing along today in Thrufty Thursday! You have some great contributions. My absolute fav's are the bowl of cherries and that antique little devil. You made off good at the thrift store. I love to see what treasures people can come up with!

Thanks for participating today in TT! I appreciate you joining the party!

Nice finds Tar, I love garage sales, I don't go to them, but I would love to go. Wish I had someone that would get a kick out of it like I would. Of course,l I'm out of space to put anything if I found something.LOL

Thank you Miss Tar Devil for coming to my Thrifty post today!!!

I'm the "tea"cher. You said you liked the sugar and creamer that my Aunt gave me as a wedding present - - - I believe it has lilies of the valley on it.

You have the largest cupid collection I've ever seen in any non-Valentine's Day venue!!!!

Suzy said...

Cute stuff. Love the little devil.

HAPPY {belated} BIRTHDAY, Tar! Hope it was wonderful one! I love all of your thrifty Valentine decor! The little devil is too cute! And when you say thrift store, you are speaking to my heart!

Thanks for your encouragement on my posting woes a few days ago! And you can't even consider not blogging! I LOVE your blog! You have such a wonderful eye for combining thrift buys with your decor. I love seeing what you have come up with! I guess we will both have to take it in moderation and do it as we can. "smiles" I do appreciate your support and friendship! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Hi Tardevil, I love your cupids and toppers and the candle holder doesn't need a candle. I especially love the little red devil. Valentines??? He's the devil. Laughing our loud.

That devil cracks me up! Happy Birthday!

Melissa Miller said...

Hello, :)
You're right. Blogger was acting very slow last to load pages.
At first I thought it was just mine and then realized it was many blogs.

I'll keep you posted about our move. It can't be much longer before we know something.

Have a great day.
~Melissa ;)

Kristens Creations said...

Happy late late birthday! Thrifty Thursday looks fun, I might join in sometime. Love that little devil.

I was going to call the hotel about my charger, but realized it wasn't expensive and decided it would probably be quicker to just order it. (I thought) Surely it will be here tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by! Kristen

JanMary said...

Popping over from your interview so you can get a red dot on your map from N Ireland :)

Dee said...

you must have a large storage area for all your finds? Or do you recycle?

Really cute things, funny they look so nice in your photos but with my eye I would never think to buy them lol
