Since I have no photos to show you of a few recent thrifty finds, I'll share my bedroom view out Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs. It was lovely. Blooming trees, budding bulbs, a sweet garden bench and a footbridge...I could get used to that.
(Insert the sound of a stereo needle scratching a vintage record album here.)
Today, I have a clogged kitchen sink with cracked p trap, a broken washing machine, lots and lots of things on my calendar that draw me away from doing the un-fun work around my house. Three plus trips to various hardware stores to find the correct p trap for my 1945 house, and I still don't have it, washing dishes in a plastic tub and pouring the dishwater down the toilet...thank you for paper plates and disposable cups!
Still, life is good. I am loved. I am full and warm and have more than I need. Tonight I enjoyed happy hour with three sweet friends, two of whom live far away. It was sweet. I am thankful.
You can be thankful for the lack of photos of my house, my kitchen sink, etc. I am also thankful for YOU for bringing more loveliness into my life, even virtually and from a distance.
Have a peek at this week's features from last week's party:
Tania from Farragoz Designer's Notebook shared a lovely post about specialty-painting two mismatched glass front cabinets in her home to create a stunning display of wonderful items!
Jann from Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olsen shared a garden birdcage stand she salvaged and created, along with other wonderful garden ideas and photos.
Patti, of Ivy & Elephants, shared a most fabulously whimsical collection of vintage salt & pepper shakers - you must see them to appreciate them! (Those girls have the most unusual and wonderful collections between them!)
How 'bout this bread and butter set? Amazing.
Have you been to any garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets, or have you found anything wonderful on the curb? We want to see it!

24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
