This is my frugalicious find today.
Can you see the price on the box?
Yes, 25 cents!!!

And all that is missing is the little markers.
I'm loving those bingo cards!
I feel some creative inspiration coming on. =0)


Here is my newest nest.

Downstairs apartment...

Upstairs apartment...

The whole place. =))

Don't ya just love it!!

And this sign,
or something like it, will go in between 'floors' on the front.

Now to decide between "Sing", "Bless Our Nest", or ??
Any ideas??

Here is some vintage black....

An old photo album, 25 cents!
And a 1948 cook book.
Things to cook that go with wine.

And Lou Cinda, here is the pic I promised.

Here is a close up.
Whadaya think?
Two like that? Maybe one on a separate shelf
close by as a vignette with some other treasures?


My frugal tip:
Gather while the gathering is good.
See something you like, dirt cheap?
Get it, You'll figure out a use later.
And if you don't, you did note pay much, and can pass it on.

I'm joining these fab blogs today.
Please go on over and take a look,
and many thanks to our wonderful hostesses.

My V.O. T. W. today is that we finished inventorying
two whole rooms at the store this week! Whoopee!!!
Guess you know I am not doing much shopping right now.
Just another thing to count!!

And, today I did some creating.
Felt sooo good!!

Barbara Jean~What a great find. Games have come and gone, but Bingo is a classic. I would imagine you can create some wonderful things with all the pieces or perhaps just play a game or two. ;-)

I sure like your little nests and the creative way they're displayed.

Sweet wishes,
