Frugal Friday

I visit my local thrift store every Friday. I had been labeling my posts "Thrift Store Friday," but that doesn't sound right. We need some illiteration here (I'm a nerd, I know). So, I am going to use "Frugal Friday" as my weekly series post title. Sounds much better.

Today, they had a box labled "FREE." That's right folks, F-R-E-E. Now, we're talking. How could I resist these cute wooden letters that I found inside?

I pried the little red heart off the C, gave them a sanding, and painted them red. They are now sitting on my new Billy Bookcases. How cute are they???  And, the best part of all was that they were free!!!

Blog Hop Party

There is a NEW awesome tool–Linky Followers
It has so many amazing features (that GFC never had). If you have not signed up you should. (yes you can have both.) I love the new tool so much and want everyone to enjoy all the new features.
…and did I tell you its super easy and FREE!
What better way to celebrate a fun new blogging tool than to have a party so break out your poodle skirt and saddle back shoes cuz’ we’re having a LINKY FOLLOWER PARTY HOP
