Thrifty and Fabuless Thrifty Thursday

Hi and welcome to another hot Thursday in July.
Today I am linking up to
Thrifty and Fabuless Thrifty Thursday
She is having her first ever link up party and I am honored to join in!! She has a great blog to be sure to pop in and say hi.
My WHOLE house is nothing but thrifty so I thought I'd link up my blog. Recently we made over our kids bathroom for less then $100.00 and several months ago we made over our kitchen for a very thrifty price as well.
Being a stay at home to 5 kids there really isn;t alot left in the budget for the home, so I scour thrift stores looking for deals and my hubby finxes up whatever I bring home.
In fact last year we even put up beadboard in our dining room for 25.00. An awesome craigslist find. Our front door was a mere 25.00 and even our kitchen and dining rooms floors we re did 2 years ago only cost 60.00 !!!
So if you're new to my blog, come on and tour our home!!!
Always thrifty here!!!

Pink Saturday love!

Thank you to Beverly at
for being our gracious host for this wonderful Pink Saturday!!
I have meet so many wonderful people and thier lovely blogs!!!
My pink contribution is a shadow box I made with my collection of digital images
I buy from etsy!
I would love to do my crafting this summer, but with the kids all home
time is scarce!!
Crafting is my little get away. A way of just relaxing and fogetting about some of the stress from
my day!!!
I have been reading all the blogs this week and just love all the Where Bloggers Create post.
I wish I had a spot!!! My space is my dining room table, and my storage is a closet off the loving room!! All my rooms are filled with sweet little faces, baby dolls, and teaddy bears!!!
And some day I am going to miss this!!!

Horray for Pink Saturday!!!

Let's have some cake!! Yum yum!!! I just had to have the cake die cuts from Jenny and Aaron at
Everyday is a Holiday!! And all I can say is WOW!!!! They look just as good in person as they do online!!! What gifted and talented people!!!!
Here is a link if you want to snatch one up too!!
They look marvelous with my bakery style kitchen!!
Here is a peek at my kitchen window. I get in these phases where I want it all cleared away and open, and then I decide it looks too empty and start filling it up again!!
Maybe I'll add more stuff this summer.
Pink Saturday is so great!! All the blogs that I browse through and everything looks so pretty.
I know I spend way too much time on the computer as it is, but then the weekend rolls around and I just can't stop checking in at
Oh how I love Saturdays!!! Enjoy!!!

Cheap bathroom redo

I know I haven't posted in a long time!! I just don't think I have anything interesting to say sometimes. I am on my blog daily and read other blogs daily as well.
The kids are all home for summer and we have been cleaning, decluttering and organizing the house. What started out as a my husband cleaning the bathroom floor turned out to be a nice weekend project!!!
I told DH please clean the floors and he decided it was just easier to tear them apart and put a new floor down. Then as he was doing that, I suggested we use what was left over from our beadboard wallpaper kitchen project to do the walls in the bathroom. So we put that up and added the chair rail and painted it all white. Looks great!! Looks like real beadboard too!!
So as we got that finished I decided to do the countertops as well like we had in the kitchen, We used laminate tile and it looks great!! My DH glues them down so they don't move!!
I love the way it looks!!! And it was done for under 10.00$$ !!!
The shower curatin was found on amazon for 14.99 and the Ikea light fixture also an amazon find for 14.99. I love the halogen lights!!!

I am super excited about the bathroom and love how we did it so cheap!! In a perfect world I would have gutted the whole bathroom, but time and money are not abundant right now!!
Oh and how do you love my kitty, Snap? For some reason she wont leave the bathroom, and I;m not about to disagree with a 17 year old kitty!!! LOL
Enjoy your summer!!
