Thrifty Treasures ~ Projects I'm Having Fun With!

SouthernHospThriftyTreasures copy_thumb

I'm linking up with Rhoda over at "Southern Hospitality" to share some of the treasures I have found at the local thrift shop, goodwill, or garage sale.

I've been up to some fun stuff that's keeping me occupied as I save money for our family.

I have been inspired over the past several months by all kinds of decorating & crafting blogs to make or create things myself and it's been a blast.

It's been making this house into a home that's cozy.

Carol,

Fabulous job! I used to do more of that when I had less children☺ Now I assign it to my girls... who are far more able than I ever way! I particularly like your set of kerosene lanterns... gorgeous.

I've been missing you. I stopped by and read a few times but didn't have the energy to write what I was thinking at the time. But I wanted to stop by and say HI!

Hugs,

Kat

Awesome job, Carol! That inspires me to try some new things around my house :-) Are you getting all settled into your house now? The pics I've seen so far look great!
