Frugal Friday (and a giveaway winner)~

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday. Last week's party was the biggest to date with over 350 entries linking up! Ohhhhh the inspiration.

Here are a few of my favorites...

First up, LemonTree Creations shared a very cute Christmas Countdown frame. I just love this idea!



Can't Stop Making Things shared her DIY advent calendar. This took some serious dedication...
But it's just too fun and inventive!


Someday Crafts shared a glued felt circle pillow. This is so cute (and easy!)



Finally, Pink Postcard shared her bike basket wreath. I am all about repurposing and this was such a clever idea!


And before we get to the linky stuff...I need to announce the winner of the Willow House giveaway... Missy from Domesticated Diva! Congrats Missy! Please drop me an email and we'll get you set up with your fabulous prize!

Now it's your turn to share your frugal ideas...

You know "da rules"....

1. Please link directly to your post and not just to your blog.
2. Please link back to The Shabby Nest.
3. Please leave comments for the authors of the posts your visit...help our participants feel the love!

I reserve the right to remove any posts that are not in keeping with the spirit of
Frugal Friday. This includes but may not be limited to those posts that link to your giveaway or your shop. Those posts that do not link back to The Shabby Nest. Posts that do not have anything to do with Frugal Decor, projects, or finds. Let's all play fair? mkay??
