I am a bargain hunter, so my first stop for anything we need is to check out the clearance sections at stores. I rarely buy anything if it isn't on sale unless we really need it like a food item. Our home is decorated economically too. Our coffee table came from someone that had put out a sign saying FREE STUFF. I sign up for free samples, get coupons online, and search for coupon codes before I buy anything online. I stock up when there is a buy one get one deal too. We turn off unnessary lights durning the day. We have had to turn the heat on already this year, but are keeping it set lower than we would usually want it. Every night I place a glass of water by my bed. If I haven't finished it by the morning, I water the plants with it.

Pat, tell her what she has won. Well, honestly, I still am not completely sure, but I am working on things Ü. Here is one little thing you will be receiving--a Give Thanks plate. I have a few other little Thanksgiving decorative things I am working on. Congratulations! Email me at with your information and I will get it in the mail this week.

Even though I didn't get a picture of our snowman, my 72 year old mom made a snow friend on her back deck and sent a picture. Isn't he cute? The snow is gone and it is up to 40 degrees. I have to go sit at son's football game soon (not that I don't love watching him play, I would just love it more in 60 degree weather!).


  1. Wow look at all that snow...isnt it Autumn there?? It is hard to imagine how cold it is there, when the weather here in Australia, has been 30c, pretty hot!!
    Your mum is very creative like you!

  2. So thrilled to have happened upon your blog! Have just had a wonderful time browsing through your creative posts!
    Hope you won't mind me adding you to my blog list so that I can come back and visit often.

  3. I loveee the snow friend! Great job mom! I still can't believe the snow! It's 85 degrees here! Hope it warms up before the football game! your blog!

  4. OMG! did i just seriously abuse the (!!) or what? sorry...will try to tone it down.... how's that?

  5. Wow! Thank you so much. I rarely win anything. The plate is very pretty, and will look lovely in my home. I have to tell you that your blog is one of my favorite blogs to visit. I love what you do with all of your furniture finds. You have quite a talent for seeing the potential in an item. You have inspired me to take a new look at some of the old stuff I have and how I can fix them up and make them more appealing. Additionally you have given me new and improved uses for garage sale and flea market finds. Thank you again!
