So . . ., you've finally found the perfect place, lots of storage, nice size rooms, all the extra amenities. But, then you're told "no painting and no making holes in the walls"! You feel all your decorating plans going out the window. What can you do to make the space your own.

Well don't despair. There are many ways to get around the restrictions and limitations and I am here to share the ways I've overcome them over the past 18yrs.

I hope you enjoy my tips and will also share your own. I'll also be sharing some of my on going projects. Once again . . .

Frugal Treasures Tuesday #13!

Good Morning One and All!

Yes, I'm finally on my way home after a glorious vacation.  I'm still reeling with joy from the birth of my new grand-daughter!  Already missing both grand-daughters. . . : -(  But I guess I'll have to take a quick trip sometime this fall to get my grandma-fix before the winter sets in up in the Northwest!!! : -)  This weekend I'll be attending our annual 3-day Bible Convention, so really excited about that.

Although I've been checking in, I've missed all of you and bloggerworld.  I can't wait to see what you've all been working on now that the weather is warmer and kids are out of school.  What has been your great frugal find lately?   What fabulous project have you completed?  I'm hoping to finish my vanity this week.  Finishing the vanity will be the final piece of my long awaited Bathroom Makeover.  So watch for a complete reveal soon!

Now let's get this party started!  As usual, to prevent chaos . . ., bring organization thus a few rules:

  • I'd appreciate if you're not a follower, please follow through GFC, Linky, or Networked Blogs. 
  • Link up your creations, inspirations, photos, or projects; no direct links Etsy shops please.*
  • Please link directly to your post,not you blog main page.
  • Be courteous and add a link back to the party on your post so others may enjoy it.
  • You may add up to 3 links of you treasures.
Looking forward to see what you'll share.

    So glad you made the trip safely and I am happy to find you back up and running. I know it was a very special trip for you. I am lucky enough that most of my family lives within three hours driving time. Love the peek you gave us of that sweet vanity!
