I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my recent thrifty finds! See this cute little moon?
I found this while shopping at a local gift shop. It was calling my name and saying I know right where you can put me!
Right here! Above this Pottery Barn crib bedding I got from my sister. She found it garage saling and only paid a couple of bucks for it. So you see why I needed that moon?
It fit's so perfectly right up here!
And it's shimmery too!
And Addison loves looking at it !
While I was in Phoenix, Marty @ A Stroll thru Life took some of us gals to her favorite fabric store.
It was wonderful! I wish I would have had a list of projects . There was so much to choose from and at such great prices! I did purchase a yard of this fabric for only $2.99! I was drawn to it and couldn't figure out why!
Well I finally found the time to make some pillows with it. I found the fringe on clearance and the pillow forms were also on sale.
See my new pillows? My drapes are the same pattern only in blue and white! Now I know why I was drawn to it!
You can see the drapes a little better here. And you can also see all the snow we have left. My goodness I want that stuff gone!!
My pillows cost me $8.00 a piece to make. Not super cheap however the fringe even on sale brings up the cost.
I do think I would pay a lot more for them in a store. And this way, I get the fabric I want .
I started a little vignette arranging. I want to add spring since it's not cooperating outdoors I will have to make my own inside!
Changing the mantel a bit. I need to find something to replace the winter scene soon!
Adding some yellow flowers brings some sunshine and spring inside!
Still kind of wintry here but I will be changing this soon.
And my last thrifty find. I found this frame at TJ Maxx for only $7.00! I am using it for Addison pics!
It's a good size frame that holds 3-5 X 7 pics. And it has that off white cottage look that I love!
So how's your week going? This is the time of year when I get so envious of my fellow bloggers who live in the south. I want spring sooo bad I can actually taste it!
Have a lovely week!
I am joining the following blog parties!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
