Updating on Projects

I've been very busy lately. I had my yard sale and was able to make some money.. which is a good thing. I bought my train tickets to Boston with that money...seeing WICKED on Thursday...can't wait!!!!
The garden is getting the better of me.
Tomatoes are coming in faster than I can pick.
Grapes are ready to be made into jelly.
My kitchen cabinets and the doors are being stripped and stained a great cherry red..(half done right now). I also had an old shutter and decided to turn it into a magazine rack.. love how it looks in my living room.

I also received some beautiful roses from my best friend and her daughter on Friday. The daughter is having a baby next month and I get to be grammie too!!!

And my first Freebie came in... a JIFFY cookbook!! Love this. Easy recipes and it was FREE!!!!

So a litttle updating on what has been happening and to let you know I'm enjoying my new found thriftier ways and looking to save money anyway I can by also reducing my carbon footprint!
