It had been scratched and worn down by faulty weather stripping. {Yes we fixed this so that it won’t happen again.} #2: There are five doors in this space that wouldn’t allow a real rug.

I have had a TON of e-mails asking me where this grey rug came from for Jilly’s dining room, and for awhile it was sold out. But, I just double checked that they have it back in at Overstock. You might die from excitement to hear that it is TOTALLY ON SALE TOO! It is 5’X8’ and since I have seen this rug in person, I thought I would pass on the information. The rug is quite thick and hand tufted wool! Guess how much it … [Read more...]

Creating conversation pieces for cheap is what All Things Thrifty is all about. I am thrifty to the core.I was raised on a farm in rural Utah. I am accustomed to working hard and was taught to get the most BANG for your buck. I grew up working on our family's alfalfa farm. Who knew this little farm girl would live in a big city one day. (LOL...yep...I consider St. George a big city!) I hope you enjoy my thrifty ideas. As … [Read more...]
