Roughly 1.5 years ago I picked up 6 vintage wooden picture frames for 50 cents to 1$ each. Also my ex Boss-Lady also gave me 4 plastic blue frames she was going to throw out. I already had a small sample pot of white paint at home that I use, here and there. And my neighbours recently put new fly screen in their windows and gave me a large piece of left over screen. And Dolly has plenty paintbrushes I can use.
I scrubbed 4 frames. Painted them front and back, attached fly screen and hooked in my earrings. Cute, Practical, Eco and Frugal. I love upcycling and I have been working on upcycling a few items in the past week when Dolly and the Rambling Expat are fast asleep. It gives me time to think and appreciate "quiet" that I so desperately crave while feeling satisfied with my creations.

Do you upcycle anything?
By the way this is Dolly when she discovered the Toys had come alive during the night! She was sooooooo excited she thought maybe our cat had set up the tea party. "No" I said, "I'm sure it was the toys because I saw Toy Story and I know the toys come alive when humans don't watch". So she said I was right and told her teacher and class mates exctitedly her morning discovery. This kind of stuff is frugal and priceless for long happy memories and experiences.

Thank you for reading about me and my frugal living. Have a great day or night.
