I love crafts. I love DIY. My biggest DIY crush? Furniture redoing/making.
Is everyone ready for today's Pinterest challenge? I know I'm excited to share my project and can't wait to see what everybody else came up with. Pinterest in general just makes me tinkle in my pants with joy!
We rode bikes around our neighborhood this weekend and stopped at all the garage sales we found along the way.
UPDATE: If you are here at All Things Thrifty for the first time, WELCOME!!
There are concerns that plastics used commonly for milk and water bottles are risky to reuse due to chemical leaching (if it's reused several times, partly because of surface wear on the plastic), and particularly with milk bottles, if you don't clean them well, they can be a bacterial risk. There's plenty of discussion on it. Truth be told the data out there does seem to be sketchy and the impact is unlikely, but I'd still personally prefer to get a container I know for sure was safe for repeated use with food, since it's very easy to do, even if you're broke. :) 9/18/11 9:10pm

I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside here in Oakland, I sense it right away: Fall is in the air! I’m lucky enough to have a few turning trees on my street, so I don’t miss out entirely on the brilliant autumn colors I remember from growing up in NH. Speaking of brilliant autumn colors, I’m thrilled to share this stunning maple leaf rose bouquet DIY from a fellow Kate — clay, fiber and paper artist Kate Hust.
DIY: Yet More Paint Chip Art You didn’t think we were done extolling the virtues and flexibility of the medium known as “paint chip” in the DIY art sphere, did you?
For something a little different than plain old twinkle lights, try folding paper around those lights. Start with a square piece of paper, I used 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 for these lights. Fold diagonal. Again on the opposite diagonal. Fold in half.
I am a meal planner. I refuse to go grocery shopping without my week’s worth of meals planned out and list made. (It’s either that or wander aimlessly around the grocery store for two hours and then make ten more trips back during the week to get things I forgot.)
