Thought for a Thursday~




Most of us spend too much time 
on what is URGENT 
and not enough time 
on what is IMPORTANT.

-Stephen R. Covey

Don't get caught in the trap of being busy for the sake of being busy.  Slow down and make sure those things that are really important are the focus of your life.  Spoken by someone who desperately needs this advice.  :)

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Favorites!


I'm pretty excited about this week's Frugal Round-up...because last week's party was full of room reveals and today I'm going to share a few of my favorites with you!

Love Grows Wild shared her office makeover.  I love the light and bright feeling.  I could really get some work done in this space!


This kitchen makeover by Vintage Refined is nothing short of amazing!  Such a great transformation!

Inexpensive DIY Wall Art~

I have been loving all of the framed rock/geode/crystal art that is popular right now.

Trouble is, it's pretty pricey.

Lucky for me, I have an 8-year-old who is obsessed with collecting rocks.  At first, I was a little bit annoyed that rocks were taking over the bedroom he shares with his 9-year-old brother.
But once I really started looking at them,
I've been down-right impressed with some of the rocks he's come home with.
Which gave me an idea.
A true light bulb moment.

Thought For a Thursday~





It's all about your attitude...

The same boiling water that softens a potato, hardens an egg.

It's about what you're made of.  Not the circumstances.

We choose our path in life by our reactions to the events that are thrown our way.  It's not always easy to choose to be happy.  But it can be done.  Choose joy.

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Favorites where I share some of my favorite picks from the previous week's Frugal Friday link party!


This darling rug was made and the tutorial was shared by Cami at Tidbits...and the best part is that it is NO SEW!

I'm pretty much enamored with this copper-leafed succulent shared by Woods of Bells Trees.  Check out the post to find out all the deets.

I love this quote which I found on my friend Megan's Instagram feed this week.  It really struck a chord with me.  I hope it resonates with you too...



There's room in this crazy world for all of us to succeed.  Let's believe in, support and admire one another.  All it can do is help us all to be the best that we can be!

Let's Go Pretend Glamping~

I'm not much of a camper, but glamping is definitely something I can get on board with.  So today I thought it would be fun to go pretend glamping.

So there are a couple of different ways one can glamp.

First Option...

Glamping "Resorts" are springing up all over the place.  Essentially, you're staying in an outdoor hotel.  I really love this idea!  And check out how fun they look.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. 

If not, you will find an excuse.

Hello Lovelies!

I'm sorry I've been MIA this week.  I have all kinds of family in town, and between that and the holiday, I have been  hard pressed to find time to sit down at the computer.  I plan on getting some fun projects done this weekend though, so next week should be better as far as posts go.



I'm excited to share this week's Frugal Favorite features!


 Check out this Rustic Dough Bowl made from joint compound shared by Anderson and Grant! This is amazing!

July~

So you know all those magazines that have a calendar at the beginning with events or suggested activities?  I thought it would be kind of fun to make one.  But then I wasn't sure what to put on it.  So I looked up random celebration days...the more random the better, to add to my calendar.   I hope you get a bit of a laugh out of it...and maybe you can find a new 'holiday' to celebrate. ;-)

There are a few of these I can definitely get on board with...like National Cheesecake Day for example.  But, just for today, I suggest telling a joke...it is National Joke Day after all. ;)
