Thin For You Thursday~

We just wanted to have a quick check-in with you all this week for Thin For You Thursday.

Holly and I were talking yesterday about today's post and both laughing because we didn't accomplish much in the way of weight loss this week.  Well, I didn't.  Holly lost 1 pound. (Which I think is fabulous!)

Frugal Favorites~

Happy Wednesday, Lovelies!

Welcome to this week's fun-filled edition of Frugal Favorites!  I can't wait to share a few of my favorite links from last week's Frugal Friday link party!

I'm really loving this DIY chicken coop coffee table shared by Scavenger Chic.  Repurposed objects like these add such character to a space!

See more great links after the break...


A Little Light Reading: Some Design Books You Might Like~

Thank you to Skyhorse Publishing for providing me with copies of the following books.

It's always fun when I get a press release in my email about new design books that are coming out.  As I've mentioned many times on the old blog...I have a bit of a design book obsession. That, coupled with the fact that I lived on the East Coast for 10 years, had me itching to get my hands on copies of the two books I'm going to share with you today.

My recent design book acquisitions.  You can read about my friend Stacy's book here.

The first book is The Nautical Home by Anna Ornberg.  

I have a bit of a love affair with the ocean and I love bringing a touch of the beach into my home.  Anna shares several ideas in this book and even has some fun DIYs for us to try at home.

The next book is Nantucket Cottages and Gardens by Leslie Linsley and Terry Pommett. 

 I love the Eastern Seashore.  And I love cottages.  And this book is filled to the brim with quaint cottages and gardens.  It's eye candy that will make you want to pack up and move to the shore.

The internet is fabulous..and Pinterest is amazing.  But for me, nothing will ever be able to replace books...especially design books that are filled to the brim with gorgeous images.  I love holding them in my hands - turning the pages - perusing them slowly (and without eyestrain.  Lol!)  I  spent a couple of leisurely Sunday thoroughly enjoying these books.

If you love design books as much as I do, you  might want to check them out as well!


Skyhorse publishing provided me with copies of these books for review.  The opinions expressed are 100% mine.


Sunday Inspiration~

Faith should electrify our mortal experience...making us wide open, 
expansive, and alert to the shimmering, unimaginable beauty 
and mystery around us.
