I wanted to share just a small handfull of the great Thrifty Thursday post participants who linked up yesterday. But to all, I want to say, "Great work!" At post time, we had almost 70 participants. Welcome to our new friends, and welcome back to our "old" ones. It's YOU who makes Thrifty Thursday a party! It's fun visiting and seeing the thrifty treasures you have! Thank you for joining me each week.
It's the Little Things that Make a House a Home found inspiration in the Pottery barn catalog. I too love to comb the pages for sparking some creativity and avoiding the price tag. Here is her creation that didn't cost the PB price. Click her blog for the how.
Maya of Completely Coastal also had a similar apporach of some shadow box inspired boxes....Take a look!
The Little Green Bean had an entire bedroom makeover. Talk about opening up a can of worms! It all began with a dresser. She hasn't had much sleep...but her bedroom is fabulous. And she didn't spend a single cent. How's that for thrifty? Check it out!
My dear friend, Jenn of Dust Bunny Hostage created this "snow globe" that held much more than snow. It came complete with beautiful, priceless memories. And was free. I can only imagine the face of the recipient who got it. You MUST read the full story over at her blog.
Like my friend Jenn, My friend Keetha of the Eclectic Company has a gift for writing. Her stories, I tell her are priceless. Her blog is truly, her life. It's a gift that she shares with others through her writings. In her TT post yesterday she shared about past missionary trips (inclucing one to Port-o-Prince Haiti). By visiting Keetha's blog, she will transport you to other places and expeiences....and like her trips it will be on a budget!
Sit, Relax and Read has been doing a bit more than that! Check out this gorgeous heart pillow made from burlap! For instructions on how to create your own, visit Sit, Relax and Read! All Things Heart and Home had the idea too but created a wreath.
Domestic Princess in Training created this gorgeous tray our of.....well you will have to visit her blog to find out. Ingenious!
Anne Marie of LaMaisonLaFortune was expecting guest for supper, but her lack luster chairs had her thinking of a way to transform them into the showstoppers of the evening. Click to see the before and how she did it....on a budget.
Speaking of transformations, York Village Shops blew me away with this table redo. You will not recongize the before picture. I wish my brain would see things in an "after Photo". Well done!
Amy from Design-Aholic shared a great project using an IKEA vase.
Now, as a final installment to my Mentone Girls Trip, I wanted to share with you my visit to a great little dive of a mom and pop Shop/Restaurant, called Big Jim's Bama Que. We had all sorts of fun at Big Jim's. Big Jim and his family were very gracious to the Clematis Club. I hope you will click over to Plates and Places Foodie Friday installment to read all about our dining experience.
Have a wonderful weekend!
LIVE. Laugh. Love.
