Waste Not Wednesday Link Party 212

The home my elderly loved one lives in finally reopened the doors to visitors this week.  So Hubs and I drove through the Rockies and spent this week visiting him, arriving home late last night.  Its such a joy to talk about days gone by, and share memories of childhood with someone you love and loves you.  I hope your week was as joyful as mine was, but now I need to be super productive again.  I look forward to seeing what you share.

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.

Tablescapes always look so fun to put together and certainly set the stage for a lovely meal.  Unfortunately the cost of doing them is out of my budget, but look at this beautiful one Beverly did from dollar store supplies.   Its so festive and pretty.

The process Marie from the Interior Frugalista used for this faux antique mirror wall art is fantastic.  Marie is always an incredible resource for finishing methods and inspirational ideas for refinishing anything.  Her method for this mirror is really smart and unique.  I love it.

    That’s so nice you were finally able to see your loved one! I can’t wait to see my parents soon. I’m sharing Memo Board Thrift Store Upcycle. Enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. Hi Allyson, hopefully you get to see them very soon. He has always been there for me, and I felt really lonely for him. Its a eight hour trip to get there, but so worth it. I will look for your memo board post.

    1. Hi Marie. I am so surprised at the process you used for that mirror. You really do inspire me with your blog, and thanks for linking it up. Love that mirror idea.
