This is the last Thrifty treasures linky party of the year.   The lovely Rhoda from Southern Hospitality has been kind enough to be host the many months and I have to say that I’ll miss the challenge each week to find something really neat but thrifty.  I’ll also miss seeing everyone else’s goodies BUT knowing our incredibly talented hostess she will come up with something equally exciting.

Here is my last blast and it is thanks to my lovely neighbour.  She knows how much I love books and she knows that my little one already has inherited this love.  So, imagine how thrilled I was when she arrived at our house the other day with a box full of vintage children’s books.  GORGEOUS! 

The colours, the pictures, the totally camp messages in some of them. 


Here are a few of my very favourites.

I do have a fun project that I also want use use one of them for.  Surfing pinterest the other day I found this very neat calendar  from Next to heaven.  So, I’m going to sacrifice one of the books and use the pages as backings. 

What do you think?  So totally sums up our family and will be fun at the front door.
