Welcome to this week’s {nifty thrifty sunday}!

Today is my little brother’s 23rd birthday, but we won’t celebrate until tomorrow. He’s a golf trainer and works a 6 day week, which includes Sundays. So we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to congratulate him and dig into some delicious cake. ;) Happy Birthday little brother!!

  5. dear Vanessa, you are so generous and kind to include the butterfly post in your highlights this week. You’d just laugh at us if you could see us fussing over those little caterpillars like mother hens. I’m off to catch up on your posts — don’t know yet whether your Friday flower was a pansy or viola„ but I know I“m going to love it. btw, have you seen those new hybrid supertunias in the garden centers? Tiny petunias — so pretty. Sending along happy birthday wishes for your brother :) xoxo, Diane

    • Thank you so much for all your sweet comment love, Diane! :)
      I totally understand the excitement over those caterpillars and their transformation! What a beautiful thing to witness!
      Those supertunias sound great! I will have to look for them next time we’re in the garden center.
      And, I will pass along the birthday wishes later today, when we meet at my mom’s. It will be the first time this year being able to sit out in her beautiful backyard. I’m really excited!
      Hugs to you!! Vanessa

  6. Hi Vanessa! Happy birthday to your brother. Have a great week and thanks for hosting!
