I did a quick stop at one of my local thrift stores today. I wasn't really looking for anything but you just never know if something good could be waiting for you.

I found four of the most darling little bee napkin rings and four green napkins.

You all know how much I adore napkin rings!

The best part is that they were all brand new. The tags were still on them. How could I pass that up?

They came from World Market. I have a feeling someone got them as a gift and never used them so they just donated them.

I was thrilled to grab them and give them a new home.

The green napkins are not ones I would normally buy but since they were only $1.00 for four, I couldn't pass them up.

After all the price tag showed these were normally $1.99 each. Which is still a great price for cloth napkins.

I think they would be great to use outside this summer.

The bee napkin rings were four for $2.00 and you can see here they were $2.99 for one. So I got all four napkins and the napkin rings for the price of one napkin ring.

I didn't find much today, but what I did find sure put a smile on my face. I can not wait to use these on a tablescape.

I guess it really is the little things in life that make me happy. OK, a big score would have made me happy too but you know what I mean.

Don't forget to leave me a message. Every message that you leave me will count as another entry for my giveaway, which ends this Monday.

Hi Joanne,
thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. I found the bee glasses at The Christmas Tree Shop, they still had them there for $2.99 each when I was there a couple of weeks ago.
They would go perfectly with your wonderful bee napkin rings. I LOVE them - what a great find.
Have a great week,
