Living a Simple Life Being Thrifty

In a nutshell, for me being thrifty means:

1.Prioritizing
2.Living within my means
3.Not wasting

Today I'm sharing my nifty thrifty finds of this past Sunday and a couple more thrown in.
Inspite of gray skies, high humidity and a threat of showers off the RG (retired gardener) and I went to the local flea market. And here is what I gathered  for a total of less than $10.00.


This is probably my favorite thing. It's a nice heavy metal and I have a color scheme in mind for painting so it will probaly be a show and tell at some point. Not sure where it will go or what it will hold but I just love it. Suggestions????
Isn't this the prettiest plate? Originally bought it for under a flowerpot but now I can't bring myself to hide it there. Will probably use it to cheer up a sandwich at lunch from time to time.
(it appears larger in the photo)
These baskets nest inside one another and have already made their home on the side porch.
I've been on a white pitcher search lately. One has been added to the bathroom and the other in the bedroom.
These two wooden signs will go outside. Not sure where just yet. Will have to do some walking around first.
 Although I kind of like where this one is resting right now.
And these are two previous finds.
 This handsome guy with his foot raised to strut is on the a wall in the kitchen.
Note the lovely Sarah Bernstein peony blooming. I just love peonies. 
and the RG found this versatile stand at the end of a driveway marked 'take me I'm free'.
Wouldn't you know he would be more thrifty than me, sigh.
Today I will live a simple life that reflects good stewardship of the resources God has given me.
