My Top 3 - Thrifty Decor Chick's Feature

Hello!  It is such an honor to be on Thrifty Decor Chick's blog.  Here is a little bit about ME:  I am in my "twenties" and am often mistaken for being in my teens.  I am a teacher and my boss can barely pick me out from the students when she walks in!  I am in love...with one hunk of a man, two basset hounds, my new house, crafting, DIYing, "thriftiquing", reading and blogging!  Who would have known that by googling the words "Ancient Marble Sherwin Williams" back in November trying to find other colors for my home, I would stumble into the world of blogging.  Like everything else I do, I let it consume me and started an addiction.  Within a few weeks, I birthed {twenty}something.

It was EASY to figure out which posts left my other posts in the dirt after running a quick stat report.  Here they are in no particular order:

Back in December, I did a post on how to Make The Daily More Beautiful.  Here, I showed how to instantly glam up your soap dispenser with items you, more than likely, already have.
Right after Christmas, I revealed my personal rendition of a Pottery Barn Jewelry Holder that I made for a gift for my good friend.  This post, by far, is the most popular "How To" read I have.
I consider this last post a DIY tutorial since I walked you through creating a post-Christmas, winter mantlescape.
I would love for you to hop on over to my blog and say hello.  Check out some other things I have done and leave a comment or two!  It was so nice to meet you :)


  1. I love the jewelry holder idea! Makes me want to find some awesome earrings so I can do it too!

  2. I love ALL of your ideas!!!
    I look forward to reading each blog that you write. And, of course, your most recent post was VERY entertaining as well as informative. It made me want to go "Thriftiquing"!!!

  5. Hmmm...looks like I have competition when it comes to being your 1 fan. :) Best of luck my dear...I wish I were a big enough dog to help you even more. I call the big dogs the "upperclassmen" -- I am just a 2nd Semester Freshman at best. :)

  8. I really enjoy reading your blog, you have such wonderful ideas! I think my favorites have been the chic soap dispenser, jewelry holder frame, & the "special meaning" printed words in different text that you framed... IDK what you called that one but, I thought that was very creative! The winter mantlescape is beautiful too!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas with all of us!
