Thrifty Thursday #31

Last week, I was late putting up  Thrifty Thursday because we were enjoying NYC...

We saw some of the protesting taking place there.....

It was a great way to throw in a little civics and review our amendments!  I stopped short of making my kids recite the preamble....although they do know it!

We visited the Sony Wonder Technology Lab and got to do virtual surgery, "work" in a TV studio and experiment with tons of other fun gadgety activities....and did I mention....admission was FREE!

We also grabbed some candy at FAO Schwartz....that wasn't free!!  That candy was like $15.00 per POUND! Those bags probably cost $4.00 each!! C-razy!

Last week on Thrifty Thursday there were two projects that I picked as my "favorites!"

My first "pick of the week".....this absolutely ADORABLE pumpkin from Simple Simon & Company made from thrifted books!

My second favorite of the week.....these "make your own hotpockets!!" from Joyful Homemaking!  How clever! (and anyone on the staff of LCBC...that one is for you!)

There were SO many other wonderful projects linked up this week.  Here are just a few!

Spruce Your Nest created this very unique tea light holder...

Crafting and Creativity shared this really fun kid's fall art idea....

The Country Chic made-over this sideboard into a beauty!!

Amelia Bedelia shows us how to take an average wall and add a beautifully painted fake fireplace!  I can't wait to see the end result!

I just love this homemade sign from Harbour Breeze....
......Rita even shows you how to put the planks together to create the wood for the sign!

Home Frosting shared how to transfer a design onto fabric.....and the painting that she designed was just beautiful!

I didn't know you had a Thursday linky party! I have been living in a cave. I just checked out your blog, taking some down time. Wow, amazing that you do all this. Very, very inspiring. I was wondering what you were doing on vacation in New York in the Fall, then I read on.....
