Well, I have some fun news. TTF has a Co-Host now! Woohoo!
My friend Linda over at A La Carte will be co-hosting TTF with me! I am so excited to share this party with Linda. Especially since this party was passed to me a couple of years ago from Linda!
So, why the change? As you know, I am going into a very busy time of the year. I was talking to Linda and told her I was thinking about either stopping this party or putting it on hiatus for the summer.
I just don’t have the time to visit all you amazing people who link up each week. And since I strongly believe in visiting my party guests, I thought it would be rude to continue on and not give each of you the time you deserve.
In comes Linda to the rescue!
Linda will be the one mostly visiting each of you. She is such a gracious host! We will still have the linky party here. So, that won’t change. And I will try to visit as often as possible. I miss my weekly fix of all of your wonderful thriftiness!!
So, I hope you all will welcome Linda! You can visit her at her blog A La Carte!
Okay, on to a little thriftiness of my own!
Last month I posted on Facebook the coupon for a free 8 oz. sample of the new Spring Valspar paint.
I have had this cheapo clock for years. I bought for .50 cents at a yard sale. I liked it because it is simple and easy to read. I decided to paint it.
First I carefully roughed it up a bit with sandpaper so the paint would stick.
I put the first coat on it and let it dry before applying the second coat of paint to it.
While I waited for that to dry, I ate a free little snack I picked up on the way home from Lowe’s
Oh how I love FREE!
Once it completely dries, I will take a q-tip and clean around the edges of the glass. If the paint is stubborn, I will dip the q-tip in fingernail polish remover to help get rid of excess paint.
Super easy….Super quick …..and FREE!Let’s see what you have to share this week
