Frugal Friday~

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday.  The last Frugal Friday of 2011...can you believe this year is almost over?  I must say I'm very excited.  I love the beginning of a new year...so full of possibility.  So ready to be filled with inspiration.

But before we get to that part, let's recap last week's party...

The Fan Favorite from last week was Scissors and Steam's post about her progress on her crocheted blanket which she affectionately calls the monster.  Hey, any blanket that takes 1 1/2 hours to stitch one row...yeah, that's a monster. ;-)


And now on to my Frugal Round-up...


First up, I love me a good IKEA hack, and check out this one from the California Callahans.  Lovin' this transformation of a Hemnes dresser!




French Country Cottage shared her beautifully decorated Christmas bedroom.  So. pretty.



And finallly, It All Started With Paint shared her fabulous entry way reveal.


Now it's your turn!

Hi Wendy!

Hope your Christmas was fab.u.lous and that you New Year's will be even better!

I linked a passel of my fave posts from 2011, including an Anthro Headband knock-off, some super yummy Apple Butter frosting cupcakes, and the simple fix my brilliant programmer hubby came up with to keep the GFC follower's box from disappearing like it has a tendency to do!

Thanks for hosting!
