So good of you to visit today! It's been a very busy week. We had company, celebrated an 18th birthday, and traveled out-of-state to a funeral. It's been very busy indeed. Here's my rather short list of thrifty things during the last week or so.
~ I finished my dress!
~ We had a homemade, handmade birthday tea party at the restaurant for Emily's eighteenth birthday. She made many Pinterest worthy decorations using things we had around the house, wildflowers, and old lace scraps.
~I was chosen to review An Endless Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti.
~I listed some items to sell on Ebay.
~We traveled to Topeka, Kansas for my father-in-law's funeral memorial. We were able to get gas for less than $2 a gallon, stayed with family, and only had to purchase one meal on the road. He's pictured in the center with our family. May God rest his soul.
~I ripped the hem of my old dress. Rather than toss it, I cut a couple of inches off and made a new hem. It's a good thing I wear them long!
That's it for this week. What have you done this week?
Thanks for dropping in!
