Thrifty Thursday Flashback Friday, Plus Foodie Friday!

Did you get to all the Thrifty Thursday participants? Here is just a small sampling of offerings, you will not want to miss any of the fun though, so check out the Participant list at yesterday's Thrifty Thursday post!

My  friend, Laura Beth of Rumifications of a Working Mom shared this crafty wreath made with beautiful papers. You can get the directions at her place!

















Sarah of A Byrd Nest created this amazing Valentine's gift for her husband.....a Steeler's table. It was created from curbside castoff/trash. Amazing. Sarah couldn't have purchased anything this fabulous! Great work! I know what Sarah got for Valentine's but I bet she got a lil somethig extra too. Great work!

















My sista friend, Jennifer of Dust Bunny Hostage (LOVE you Jen!) had some great thrifty scores this week....from her free feather wreath to her jadite lamp and shade that she created herself. Her luck didn't stop there. Visit Jen to see what else she found.
And while I am thinking about it, at the time I post this, Jen visited every TT participant this week. Thanks, Jen! You rock!



















JHill of Mad in Crafts uses Dollar Tree finds to create an Pottery Barn pagebook vingette...cost a couple bucks!




















Ok, Did you see it yesterday? Surely you know what I am talking about. Kendra.  Domestic Princess in Training seems to have it all down. Did you see her much envied craft room? And can you believe she created that page from a magazine worthy room on a budget. A small budget.
Meet Kendra, this week's TT Queen. 
Really, it IS a coveted title. It is.
Here is just one pic. You will want to visit her blog and see all the thrifty creations that can work in any space. Go, see Kendra in her element. (Standing "O")

















Thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday this week! And thank you also for dropping by!

Oh! Please don't forget to check out Plates and Places Foodie Friday for a recipe that is a perfect one dish meal. Think bed and breakfast casserole. Thanks to "the Boss!"

Hugs,
Leigh

Hi Leigh, I missed TT this week but it looks like some great things went on. Just wanted to let you know I posted today about the roses you mentioned before. We've started work on the wash house and they were pruned some so we could remove a voluntary tree growing thru the middle of them. I think they'll bounce back though.
Hugs,
Dawn

Aw thanks! I was tickled pink by that lamp.

Kendra's craft room re-do just blew me away! I would love to sit in the black and white chair and just hang out in that room.

Of course I would get arrested for being in a stranger's house, but it would almost be worth it.

Have a wonderful weekend Leigh!!

Leigh, I'd be glad to send you the donkey case if you'd like it. Esp. if you'll teach me something like how to make my fav blogs into a button listing.

Love, DeniseMarie-Bloomin
