On the Cheap

I have been searching for several months now for just the right thing to hang above the toilet in my powder bath. I finally decided to make my own.
Container: $10 at Hobby Lobby - 1/2 off
Feathers: $2 at Hobby Lobby - 1/2 off
Greenery: $3 from yard sale for a big bunch of it
Knowing I spent less than $20 bucks on this pretty arrangement: priceless

Thanks for stopping by, JL. I love the floral piece you did. I'm way behind checking out HL these days.

My hubby and I lived in Tulsa back in the late 80's and absolutely loved it. Even though we'll always be Texans, some of our fondest memories and very best friends are in Tulsa.

Saw your comment on another blog and had to come support a new blogger. I just started mine as well, and it's been a blast. Love your fun find. Nothing better than finding special treasures and/or creating them yourself.
Your kiddoes are ADORABLE!!!!
I am from NC but in your TX state right now.:)

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
