A New Event - "Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays Party"

Good morning my friends.  You may have noticed that I have begun to participate in a few blogging events just recently.  It is a great way to get to know other bloggers out there, that maybe I wouldn't normally be exposed to.  It is so much fun to find other like minded individuals through out the US and the world at large and come together with the common themes.
This post will be about one that I just heard of today called "Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays Party".   It is going to be hosted by Linda at Coastal Charm .  It will get started on March 2nd, so come on and join the fun.  I'm so excited for this new opportunity. 
You see, I was raised by two individuals that were products of the "Great Depression" and thus they trained and taught the seven of us children to have core values of spending our money wisely.  As a very young girl I would go to garage sales with my Mother.  I have many fond memories of looking for the needle within the haystack and two great purchases I found before I was 10 years old and purchased myself stand out in my mind as some of my earliest thrifty finds.
The first was a chipped up pink depression glass coffee cup for .05 and the second was a gorgeous white stoneware coffee pot with a sailboat on its side which I purchased for $2.00.  I still have that coffee pot and it resides at our beachy themed cabin in Minnesota.
So plan to check out this great new event starting on March 2nd and "Let the Party Begin".

    Welcome to my site Judi. I blogged for 1 full year before I felt comfortable enough to join in on a blog party, but I'm loving the interaction with other bloggers. So much fun.
    Linda - I'm excited for the start of your new blog party, and need to get a post ready for it too.
