{nifty thrifty sunday #95}

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

I am really sorry for not having posted in over a week and missing the last {nifty thrifty sunday}..
Some of you might remember me telling about my husband having been to the emergency room a couple of times last month. Well, he ended up having to be admitted to the hospital and spent 2 days in ICU and another 5 days in a regular room, after having to go through emergency surgery. I was with him every waking hour, trying to give him all the strength I could give him. Unfortunately I was also struck down by a cold at the same time and could only see him with a facial mask.
This is the second day back home and he is doing much, much better. My cold is pretty much gone by now, too, and we can enjoy some lazy hours on the couch. ;)

I'm excited to see what you've been up to while I was gone! Let's party!! ;)

------------------------------
Today's party is sponsored by Fabric Warehouse Direct, a discount fabric boutique that specializes in designer fabrics that sell for wholesale prices.

Fabric Warehouse Direct sells 1st quality designer closeout fabric and wallpaper at tremendous savings. Some designer names include Kravet, Osborne & Little, Brunschwig & Fils, Lee Jofa, Titley Marr, Schumacher and more. Many of fabrics range from $100-$200 at retail that sell for $10-$30 a yard on average at Fabric Warehouse Direct.

They hold true to their tagline "Designer Fabrics Below Wholesale Prices" and their perfect score on eBay shows it!


   
Just imagine these beautiful floral prints draping your window!


   
Or how about these for new cushions or upholstering a chair?


   
These wallpapers would be great for the backing of a shelve or accent wall!

      Vielen lieben Dank, Annika! :) Es war wirklich beängstigend in der letzten Woche, aber zum Glück scheint alles gut verlaufen zu sein und meinem Hubby geht’s schon wieder viel besser. Da kommt einem so ne olle Erkältung wirklich lächerlich vor, hehe.

    I am so sorry to hear about your husband but glad he is now at home!

    Today I shared Preparing Beef Heart and Heart Kebobs Recipe. I originally made this recipe after we butchered our first steer but now I purchase beef heart from a grass fed beef farmer locally – it is just that good!

    Have a great week!
