Frugal Friday~

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday!

I have a couple of really fun features to share with your for this week's Frugal Round-Up!

First, I'm crushing on these adorable rustic kids' chairs shared by My Love 2 Create.  You'll never guess what the bases for these cuties are made from...car jacks.  No, seriously.

Next, this black and gold office shared by Petite Modern Life is amazing.  I love the elegant color combination!

I'm sharing some of the reasons why I really love my new neighborhood and why I feel like living in Hydeaway Cottage is like living in a storybook.  If you'd like to find out how I feel about my cute-little-storybook-neighborhood, you can check out the post here.

I am an employee of Ivory Homes and was compensated for the post.  The opinions expressed about my neighborhood are 100% authentic and mine.  I love my neighborhood!
