Waste Not Wednesday Link Party 

Hows everyone doing these days, hugs to everyone this week as we all seem to be dealing with one crisis after another. 

In Edmonton there are no garage sales yet, but I think the thrift stores are either opening or will be opening by mid June.  I am still avoiding shopping as much as possible though so not sure if I will go check them out anytime soon. 

Blessing to all of you, and I pray that things settle down soon xo.  Thank you for dropping by.

The featured blogger for the month of is Across the Boulevard

Across the Blvd has two contributors, Beverly who is the blogger and her daughter Gloria who contributes home decor and recipe projects as well.  This mother and daughter duo use to live across the street from once another hence the name. Beverly and Gloria both live in Charleston South Carolina.  I was able to meet both of them during a Haven conference a couple of years ago.  I can only dream of living in a city as beautiful as the one they call home!

Across the Blvd creates home decor projects and craft tutorials with the goal to help readers find frugal ways to create a beautiful home.  They create lots of coastal decor, farm house decor, repurpose projects, decorating ideas and the occasional recipe.

Beverly has been participating in  Waste not Wednesday for a long time,  and she is generous with supporting other blogs including myself.  Please share some blogger love this month with Beverly and Glorias projects, she is a joy to work with.

This week’s Monthly Bloggers Featured Post

I chose this recipe holder from a thrift store find to showcase this week.  Across the Blvd often creates things in a pretty soft blue.  She is also really talented at finding thrift store items and giving them a modern spin.  You should see the before.

  3. Nice to see Bev & Gloria as your featured blogger this month and how fun that you got to meet them in person! Those hand sanitizer pouches featured are brilliant – my purse needs one. FYI, some of the thrift stores are now open in our area! I’ve been braving venturing to the stores WITH a mask and it feels so good to replenish my supplies. I hope you’re having a great week so far!

We can all do a lot for each other in the blogging community. Thanks again! You’ve made my day!
