Since it was just Thanksgiving, and just to show how thankful I am for all of my blogger friends who have supported me in my pursuit of all things thrifty, I'm presenting my very first giveaway.
The rules are very simple. Each day I will give you a clue to help get your creative juices flowing. The first person who leaves a comment with the correct answer will be the winner, but the prize will not be revealed until December 4.
The prize is not a grand object, but something I found to be funny, and does provoke many memories from my childhood.
Keep in mind that I won't be able to announce the winner until December 7. By the time you read this, I will be in Croatia, just having left Rome for a few days. But I didn't want you to think I had forgotten about you, since I never do, so let's start with Clue Number One.
While in Fort Lauderdale, I visited Faith Farm Thrift Store, a crazy thrift-o-rama the likes I've never experienced. As soon as I walked inside the main building and went up the stairs, I experienced the thrift trance when I spied six cardboard boxes overflowing with party goods and other odd objects marked half-off. I dug through Christmas name cards, party horns and bundles of paper streamers until the mystery item appeared and took my breath away. I whisked it away with a huge roll if pink ribbon for a grand total of 75 cents.
Oh, and it's right here, inside this plastic bag.
Any wild guesses?
