Frugal Friday~

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to this week's Frugal Friday!

NOTE:  I've had a few readers comment about the teeny-tiny thumbnails.  I'm so sorry about that!  Linky Tools changed their dashboard, and I'm still getting used to it.  I accidentally chose the wrong size thumbnails this week when I was doing the post settings.  I can't change it now, but I promise I won't have such small thumbnails next week.  Time to get out the old magnifying glass, huh? LOL! 

Last week's fan favorite was this fabulous hand-painted clock by The Exchange.



Now for my Frugal Round-up...

First up, an awesome DIY painted Zebra Rug from J and J Home.



Then A Room Full of Good Intentions shared her adorable Summer Pinwheel Wreath.  I just love pinwheels...they're so festive!


I couldn't get over this adorable nursery from 5 Days 5 Ways.  That chair was a $25 dollar Craigslist find!?!



And finally, since I have back-to-school on the brain, I loved this homework station shared by Mommy Minded.


Now it's your turn!

You know "da rules"...

1. Please link directly to your post and not just to your blog.
2. Please link back the Shabby Nest (you can use the pretty new button on my side bar to make it easy.)
3. Please visit other participants and leave them comments! Help them feel "the love!" And don't forget to "like" your favorite posts so they can become the "FAN FAVORITE!"

Thanks for hosting. I enjoy looking at your weekly hosts! However......I'm not loving that the thumbnails are SOOOOO very small this week! I can barely identify some of the pictures. Just a bit of feedback! :) Thanks again for all you do.

I love frugal Friday. I always find lots of great ideas. And I like the new "like" feature. I will definitely be using it. But is there any way that you can increase the thumbnail size? They are a little too small to see and it is overwhelming to think that I have too look at all of them to find the really good ones. Thanks!

Hi Wendy! I'm back again! Thanks so much for featuring my little girl's nursery. Such a treat to get on here to link-up and see her room! : ) I did a BIG master closet overhaul/makeover this week that I just had to share (#138!).
Thanks for hosting!

Thanks for hosting! I love your linky's too. I am having a hard time with the tiny thumbnails, wish I could see what peeps have so I know what I want to go look at. But I am definitely checking out as many as possible, so many great ideas...so little time. sigh

Always enjoy this party. I'm seeing really small linky thumbnails. Not sure if that's 'normal' or not. Thanks much for hosting.

Wendy, Thank you for hosting Frug Fri, I always find something useful.
One comment, is there any way that you can increase the thumbnail size? They are a little too small to see. I checked back to older frug fri's & they were much larger. Thanks.

This is my first time linking to your party and I did kinda wonder about the itsy bitsy pics.

I am actually hosting my first party and on Wednesday and I wondered how to set up the linky... at this point in time I'm just hoping that someone shows up...

Thanks for hosting!
