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 Party Features

Hello everyone to the start of another great week!  I've got a lot going on and have so busy that I haven't uploaded my projects though I've already taken  the pictures.  May have some major news later this week, possible move to a larger space . . . *ssshhhhhhh *  It's a secret!  I'll keep you updated though. : )   -_^

Now on to our features from last weeks Frugal Treasures Party.  Our most popular link was from
Alderberry Hill for her awesome spring green adirondack chairs.

I love these victorian style iron chairs from Cap Creations.  Can you believe they were free.***

My favorite this week is from Pollyanna Reinvents for these gorgeous Cake carriers.  She has many more like this on her blog, check it out!

Over at Love Bakes Good Cakes she shares the recipe for this yummy Sweet Tart Cheesecake!

Welcome to Tammy, a newbie at our party from Show Me Crafting.  Love this apron turned sewing machine cover.

Shabby for Sure shares this adorable child chair with graphics tutorial.

On Sutton Place invites us to her sunny summer porch!  That cute pillow is reversible!

This is such a cute flower box from Decor & Harmony!  You won't believe the before.

I think this is the Frugal Treasure of the week!  Woman In Real Life found this 99 cent summer dress for her daughter, so cute.

Congrats to you all and thank you for sharing your awesome projects and finds!  Feel free to grab your feature button from my sidebar.  Don't forget to be back for this weeks party starting at 7:00PM this evening!
