Really, really easy DIY terrariums in a jar

Sundays are meant to be easy, and I’m all about easy (projects, that is). I typically tackle laundry and cleaning on Sundays, even though I’d love to find the time to do these chores during the week to free up my weekends for fun. A cabinet full of empty jars was my motivation for today’s project. It was time to clear out the clutter.

Friday finds

Friday is the new Thursday. Or it is the other way around? I skipped my Thursday thrifting because I knew there wasn’t an additional discount on furniture, so made a plan to go tonight instead. My foresight borders on genius.

Throwback Thrifting Thursday

I’m thinking this will be a regular thing for my blog, because it gives me another excuse to indulge in my obsession treasure hunt. It’s a looney tunes habit disguised as motivation for fresh content. I know you see right through me. But here’s how *I* see it: when I hear from readers who get inspired to thrift at this very store, I feel gratified and it only encourages my behavior. So deal with it. You might actually score something.

Free!

Yes, I said the “f” word – the one that gets more attention than the other “f” word. I admit it, I spend waaaayyy too much time looking through trash in search of treasure. Does it pay off? Certainly. And this time, I’m doing it for you. We’re talkin’ FREE stuff, people! No buyer’s remorse!

Well, hello there!

When does it end? You know, that seemingly incurable urge to possess more and more material things? I’m convinced that I’ll take it to my grave. Until then, my wish list is constantly evolving for the hotties that I want but refuse to acquire due to dangerous hoarding tendencies and my quest for material detachment. (Those who know me personally, I can see you rolling your eyes and laughing. It ain’t helping.)

Things that make you go hm….

I thought I’d take a break from home decor to talk about my other great love: fashion. That’s right, folks, I’m also hot for haute couture. Actually, I’m just as thrifty when it comes to clothing. “Haute couture” only exists in my vocabulary by default of being married to my Euro hubby.

So what force of evil made me temporarily abandon my love for all things home and furniture?

And the winner is….

Hooray for Hollywood! It’s Oscars Sunday! While the world waits eagerly to see the winners of the most highly coveted awards in the American film industry, and Ellen DeGeneres picks out yet another dark pantsuit in prep for her spotlight role, I thought I’d round up my nominees for Best Picture this year.
