The Gift of Thrift: A Generous Gesture

Since I'm in the Kansas City, Missouri, area visiting my family for Father's Day, you can imagine how surprised I was to find that traffic to my blog increased almost three-fold yesterday. All of a sudden I started getting kind messages from people I'd never met, and complements on my book The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details. After a bit of investigating, it all started to make sense when I remembered that I had offered a personalized copy to the gracious Bill of Affordable Accoutrements to give away to a lucky winner as he celebrates one year in Blogville.

There's still time to enter the Affordable Accoutrements give-away, and while you're there take a peek at Bill's marvelous table creations. You'll be amazed at what you see.

Thank you for all of your warm wishes -- and thank you, Bill, for featuring me and my labor of love!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!

The Elegant Thrifter
