Frugal Living and a Giveaway

I have recently taken it upon myself to learn all I can about frugal living. I already spend lots of my time frequenting thrift shops - I would much rather spend my money there than at the local shopping mall or department stores. I'm learning to preserve foods by canning and freezing, and I'm clipping coupons, organizing them in a binder. A HUGE help to me has been Stacy at stacymakescents. Stacy is the Queen of frugal living and is ever willing to share her hints and ideas. She has weekly giveaways, and this week I am proud to be a giveaway sponsor. So skip on over there and check it out (no international entries, only US please). The prize? Remember this?....

Sweet Bird Find, and Current Wedding Project

I am so far behind!! I cannot believe that it is September 1st (my very FAVORITE month!) - where did August go???? Anywho, I'm coming around to visit today to see what you're up to. Wanted to share a recent find - a darling tray/caddy in a gold finish with little "kissing" birds on the handle. It is listed in my Etsy.   I have more finds I can't wait to photograph and show you very soon. This past weekend was one of the best in the way of discovering treasures!

I have also been busy filling a custom order for bridesmaid gift boxes (last two pics), and I'm almost finished -Yay!
