Thrifty Things Friday #30

Hi everyone!

Holy cow! This is our 30th party already! Time is flying!

Today I want to introduce Hootie to you! 

ttf30 001ttf30 002  Say “Hi” to all the nice people Hootie!

ttf30 011A friend of ours, Katie, gave me a box of misc. craft things and in the box was Hootie!  Thank you Katie! I thought this free grapevine owl would make a cute Fall decoration addition. But, I think he needs a nest! I didn’t want to go out and buy anything so, I rummaged through my stuff and came up with this.

nestLet me tell you, this was very messy. I wanted to put it all in a basket but, I couldn’t find the right size for this shelf. Oh well, sometimes creating is not neat! That is what vacuums were invented for! :)

 ttf30 0172  nests Now let’s take a look at a couple of fun posts from last week’s party!

Finding Secret Treasures shared her Fall decorated mantel and hearth. Oh, I just love the rustic feel of this!

26Cap Creations showed us this super cute frame she made. She even shared the graphic with us (which I immediately saved!)
