Thrifty Tuesday

I'm linking up with Linda at Coastal Charm today to take part in her Thrifty Tuesday. Usually I'm looking for something for the house to show, but recently a new consignment shop opened close by and I have found the best deals in there, so I thought that I would share a few with you. I did buy other items, but so far, these are the only two that I have worn so far. I don't know about ya'll, but it's really, really hard to take a picture of yourself!!! Of course, the two times I did this, I was all by myself, so I had to make do, but I think you can see them pretty good. I bought this cardigan, that has the cutest embellishments on it for only $6.00. I couldn't believe the price! Then I found this t-shirt with the giant fleur-de-lis on it for only $5.00!! I was so proud of myself. Like I said, I did buy some more items, but I will post them as I wear them later on.

Under the Crepe Myrtle

I moved my white chairs off the front porch and put them under my crepe myrtle tree out by the driveway. I thought they would be pretty sitting under the tree and to relax in the shade. Boy was I's 100 degrees here in the south and no tree has enough shade from the sweltering heat, so for now, they are just for looks!!!! Maybe soon the temps will break and we can enjoy them. Please visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for more outdoor pics. I'm also linked with Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

As of yesterday at 2:30 pm, I have officially become a Great Aunt. My niece had a little boy yesterday, and needless to say, we are sooooo excited!!! They named him Eli and he's such a cutie patootie!!! Hubby has been singing that song from the 70's by Three Dog Night..."Eli's Coming" for months and now he's finally here!! We can't wait to spoil him!
