Jane over at This Week for Dinner liked one of my dinner menus, decided to try it and posted a linky mention to me on her menu. Mine was a simple dinner idea where she has a beautiful blog full of amazing photos and scrumptious recipes! So can you say Wow?!
A really thrifty Simple Savvy Girl gave me a shout out link at the end of September on her blog. Which you should really check out. She is taking a room a month and posting her makeover progress, plus frugal grocery shopping tips with recipes tossed in the mix.
Never forget you DO inspire others with your words, your lives and the gazillion makeovers, make dos, tips, thoughts and constant blog sharing. I know because:
One of my former students from church checked out my blog and made her own decor from an idea she ran across when blog hopping landed her at Shanty2Chic. Paula shared the idea with her sisters one weekend recently and this is their handiwork.
Cottage State of Mind. Those pretty pears will soon be on their way to me! I'm sure they will make their way into an upcoming tablescape. I'm thrilled! Plus when Dawn announced her 3 winners (yep she knows how to do a giveaway!), she wrote the sweetest blog review for each of us. Be sure to drop by her place as she is a frugal thrifter that loves antique sales and markets. You'll love all the pretty finds she comes across on her adventures.
My shiny shout out today is going to Jen over at Beauty and Bedlam. Jen does it ALL! She is a mom to 5, a frugal fashionista, an expert thrift store shopper, a menu planning cooking extraordinaire and trash to treasure makeover queen. Not only that she is sweet and down home as apple pie. She constantly amazes me with almost impossible feats of organization by keeping up with a popular blog, tweets and comments along with being the mommy, house manager and wife. This woman can dress like she's straight off a Paris runway with clothes from the Goodwill!
Jen encouraged me to take a double look while I've been on my yard sale, Goodwill, junk store adventures. Here is the result! I'm NOT too chicken to say this hippie cool vest cost me 50 cents! and totally makes me look rad and hip in my 40-something years. ;-) Thanks Jen! Hope I did you proud with this one!
