Thrifty finds, Borrowed xmas ideas and a bug in my cereal

This post is going to be all over the place but I have 3 things to share this morning.

First of all I'm borrowing an easy and beautiful xmas decor idea from one of my favorite bloggers, Miss Mustard Seed

This one is working well with my budget!

Secondly you guys know I visit my fave thrift store every monday and always seem to find a few small things. Today it was a chippy old iron lamp for $2

and these 2 old monogrammed knives for .25 cents each!

Lastly, I have to share a funny. Today has been an "attack of the insects" day! First, my toddler got eaten alive and almost carried away by mosquitos this morning when we took my oldest to school. THEN, I brought in a mum that is near death and placed it in my kitchen sink to water it. When I sprayed it a giant grasshopper (like one of those meaty 4 inchers that are so fat they can barely jump) whizzed right past my face and plopped right onto the kitchen counter. THEN, after I had scooped that guy up and performed a catch and release, I opened my box of special K and almost had a heart attack.'s fake. And I know who did it. He is at work now, but there will be revenge later!!!

I suggest you put a mannequin head in bed before he "retires" for the night. Or maybe you have one of those fake arms. Either one will do the trick. :@
