Happily in a new home

As some of you may know, my husband got transferred to a new duty station. We are now stationed at Buckley Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. It’s a joint base so there’s Navy, Army, Marines, and Air Force. The base is about 5 years old, so everything is really nice! And let me tell you, it’s absolutely gorgeous here!  I don’t think I’ll ever get used to seeing the mountains. It’s such a refreshing sight to see in the mornings, or as the sun is going down. We’re both looking forward to exploring the area, and being as active as possible. Summer can’t come soon enough! I’m ready for some killer hiking, and river rafting!
I moved out here last Friday, so I haven’t had internet access at all. I’m really sorry I haven’t updated anything! But now that I’ve got my new home there are lots of projects to come, I promise! I recently made a pintucked duvet cover; I’ll share the tutorial soon. I’ve also been doing A LOT of thrifting. The thrift stores out here are to die for. Really, to DIE for. Ikea and Target donate to the Goodwill so there’s some awesome finds. The second Saturday of the month the whole store is half off, so that makes the deal so much sweeter.  (:  You can turn almost anything from the thrift store into a piece that is designer worthy. Solid color porcelain figurines are really in style right now, and a can of spray paint is really all you need to do the trick.  Just today I spray painted an old clay bird with white spray paint, and now it looks like something I bought from West Elm. Simple as that!  You could also transform lamps, mirrors, picture frames, pottery, and vases with spray paint.
I love love love seeing the traffic my blog is getting. I really hope I’m helping each one of you accomplish something that will save you money. Don’t be afraid to comment. I love getting feedback whether it’s positive, or suggestions. I’d love to know if any of you want me to find a frugal approach to something in your own home. Don’t be shy! ;)
