Insert Fun & Captivating Title Here


I feel my creative juices flowing back in, but I still couldn’t manage a title….

On to the point of this post!

Itty Bitty Table, more like a display thingie for a whopping $1 from the Pacific Home Do-It Center.


Too really ugly gold candle sticks, a cute & tiny pewter mug and a nice cut glass carafe. Total?? $3

Lampshade $1, Ornaments 50 cents, a coffee carafe for when, notice I say when, ours breaks? Priceless at $1.

So we didn’t get this from the thrift store, but it was a great deal at PetSmart for $2.50. (When we bought him the ear wasn’t chewed yet)

MurphyGrace loves it. Now if I could just get him to stop throwing it around the house like a football, that would be really nice;)

Make sure you go and visit Leigh at Bloggaritaville and see all of the Thrifty Treasures that people have this week.

So what are you going to do with your itty-bitty table?? Inquiring minds want to know :-) Great buys this week..looks like Murphy Grace likes his thrifty find too!

Murphy is sure one beautiful dog! Just look at those eyes. I think he's saying, "just glue the vase and the candlesticks to the little table and they won't go flying off when I play with my bear. Problem solved."

I gotta tell ya, Sunny has been doing great with the kitten but I thought he killed it the other day. They were playing and Sunny decides to flop on his back and do the wiggle scratch thing. But he lands hard right on the kitten. Sunny's like 120lbs. All I can see of the kitten is his head on one side and his tail sticking out the other side. It's trying to cry out but can't get enough air m.......e......o....w! I'm trying to save him but Sunny doesn't even know he's there and is wiggling and flailing his legs all over as he scrathes his back on the floor. I thought Mickie was a gonner for sure but he finally got out and just stood there for a second then went right after Sunny again. Of course I was totally traumatized!

Hi Gwen...

Love all of your treasure finds, my friend! But I do believe that your MurphyGrace upstaged it all...hehe! What a pretty boy...he's just adorable with his new teddy! Would love to see him play football with it! Hehe!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Great finds, but my favorite has to be the new bear! That picture of MurphyGrace with the bear is adorable.

Erica said...

You got some great finds.....but my most favourite was your doggy with that bear. He's so adorable. Thanks for sharing......

Very thrifty! But I must respectfully disagree about the "ugly" gold candlesticks. I love them!

linda said...

Looks like you found some great deals this week! As far as the gold candlesticks are concerned, black spray paint! Since I started blogging, black spray paint has become my new BFF! It takes care of everything!

Murphy Grace is beautiful and certainly loves his new thrifty find. Our little guy Jake became paralyzed one year ago and doesn't play with toys anymore. I used to love going to PetSmart and buying him cute little holiday toys. He's decided he'd just rather be carried around or sitting right next to momma!

My hubby would love Murphy. But we need to let our kitties go on to Kitty Heaven before we get a d-o-g.

Great finds! I love Murphy and his thrifty find! Thanks for sharing!

Gwen, I'm so glad you are feeling better! Glad you got out shopping, too. I think there is the making of some neat things there. And...I love the pictues of the bear and MurphyGrace. That last shot with the two of them is great!
BTW-Yes, by the time I posted about my "interesting" week, I was laughing about Les and her shocking adventure. Life is always exciting.

That itty bitty table would fit perfectly on our tiny porch:) Murphy sure looks happy about his new one-ear friend:)

Struggler said...

Oh yeah, Murphy Grace stole the show! How do you deny him anything when he looks at you with those brown eyes? :)
