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 Features!

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I'm enjoying my vacation in Portland,OR and spending time with my family and friends.  We're still awaiting the arrival of the new grandbaby; any day now!   Let you know when she gets here. : -)

Of course I've already done some shopping.  But in my defense, I didn't bring warm enough clothes thus I had to do some local frugal shopping! -_^  LOL!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it. : )
These finds are from 2 different stores, a thrift and Ross!
Pretty good haul, don't you think?  I fell in love with the texture and colors of the little purse.

Frugal Treasures Tuesday #12

Hello Ladies,
Welcome to another lovely spring day.  I'm in the process of packing for a vacation so won't be around much for a few weeks.  Good news we are having the party this week!  But starting next week, the party will be postponed for a couple of weeks.  I will, however, post the features from this weeks party next Monday!  While on vacation I will send some pics of my shopping stops and frugal finds as well as the beautiful views of the state of Oregon!  I'll also let you know when my new grand-daughter is born with a quick pic! : )

So now on to the feature links from last weeks party.  Your favorite by number of clicks is a 3-way tie this week:
Kathy @ Sharing Shadymont for her great frugal scores.  I especially love this tablecloth!

Frugal Treasures Tuesday #11

Happy Monday one and all.  It's been a long week and busy, enjoyable, and refreshing weekend.  As I said before I had to take a break on my projects, but did manage to start my makeover of this cabinet.

Everything's Coming Up Roses!

Well, my BFF and her room mate have gone.  It was an amazing week, but I will admit its taken awhile to get the wind back in my sails! LOL!!!  I spent the first 2 1/2 days after they left just sleeping.  Then Sunday evening, after my Bible meeting, I went out to Red Lobster with a good friend to just sit back enjoy a meal and talk.  We even drove over to Baskin Robbins for a scoop of icecream.   So I didn't finish any projects.  But I thought I'd share some more pics of my roses, they have been blooming profusely this year!

I love the way the lavender looks under this rose bush.

Frugal Treasures Tuesday #10

I've had guests all this week so, haven't did any projects.  But thought I'd show you a shelf I put together in my bedroom.
