Another week–and month–down.  Where does the time go?  Thank you so much to everyone who linked up at Thrifty Thursday this week.   If you haven’t had a chance, be sure to check out all of the fabulous recipes, projects, & tips on this week’s Thrifty Thursday post.  It was SO hard to pick my favorites this week,  but without further ado, here were (just a few of) the things I loved:

First of all, I am pretty much obsessed with the idea of having chickens, which is currently not an option in our deed restricted community.  Until we can find a place in the country, I am simply insanely jealous of living vicariously through anyone who does have them.  I absolutely LOVED this swing set turned chicken coop from His Mercy is New!

 I was totally intrigued by this Natural Garden Pest Spray from My Sister’s Pantry.  Husband and I have had almost no luck with our attempts at gardening thus far, and one of our biggest problems is BUGS!  I can’t wait to try this recipe on our next go-round.

Love, love, LOVE this DIY Upholstered Wingback Chair from Lovely Little Life.  SO pretty!  Upholstering totally scares me, but she almost makes me believe I could do it too!

 This Pottery Barn-inspired Raleigh Headboard Frame How To from I Dream of Jeanne is insanely beautiful.  She did SUCH an amazing job!  I am ready to throw out my old bed right now and get going on this one!

These Parmesan Wonton Chips from Essentially Eclectic looked delicious.  I’m pretty sure I would eat the whole plate if I made those right now.

I actually wanted to lick my screen when I saw this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie from Real Food Enthusiast.  Chocolate, bananas, & peanut butter?  Yes please!

And speaking of peanut butter, did you know you could make it yourself?  I am dying to try this homemade peanut butter recipe from Pounds 4 Pennies.  YUM!

This tutorial for How to Slipcover an Ikea Chair from Just the Bees Knees was fantastic, as was her entire little boy’s room makeover.  (A dinosaur/baseball theme? I die!)  Sheer perfection.
