I kind of cringe whenever I hear someone say that they can’t have a cute/decorated house or dress themselves or their children nicely because “I can’t afford it.” I’ll add, don’t look at my house or clothes as an example, I’m in decorating and fashion preschool. But I’m learning. Between frugal decorating and clothing blogs, and my creative friends, I’m getting lots of good ideas. Here are a couple I ran across yesterday.
Creative Juices Decor. Wow, this chick has made some amazing Pottery Barn knock-offs! She guest posted here about how to make an adorable vintagey clock face. I love it!
One of my favorite crafty/housey blogs ever, Pleasant View Schoolhouse, posts an idea for the most frugal, cute, fast and easy little girl skirt. With nothing more than a few thrifted t-shirtsand the most rudimentary sewing skills, your little girl can have a whole rainbow of soft, adorable skirts. I’ll definitely be trying this one.
