Thrifty Tuesday! {new feature}

So, I have two new blog features for you.  
The first is...

Thrifty Tuesdays!  
See how excited Katie is to tell you about what we have found?  Oh, gosh!  This is going to be so fun!  We might tell you about estate sales that we found the weekend before, or show you some pretty things that made their way into our basket at the local thrift shops.  The thrill of the hunt makes us all giddy!
(see what 100 posts will do to you? )

And the second one is....
Feed the Birdies on Friday will feature a recipe for your bunch...friends...family...or maybe the birdies.  
We can't leave them out, can we?  
So, here is our first Thrifty Tuesday, and I couldn't be more excited about it!

The stuffed animals at our local thrift store are in multitudes, and usually we just bypass the whole lot of them.  We do not need more at our house.  But, my sister-in-law and her family just got a brand new mini dachshund puppy, and *bingo*, a need for tiny animals with long arms in mass quantities for chewing!
Meet Pebbles:

  So, here's what you can get 
for 95 cents (yep...not even a buck)
at the thrift shop.  
A puppy party basket full of fun things! 
Lots of long arms and a silly caterpillar.
Something to snuggle at night.
 And a silly yellow frog to play tug-of-war with.  I used a basket that I had 
around the house and some tissue paper 
that I had hoarded.  
Yay for finding new homes for fun things!  
Now isn't that thrifty? 
I think Pebbles will love it, don't you?
