Frugalicious Friday Favorites & A Winner!

Hey guys, it's wonderful to be back!  It's Spring Break around here and our family took a much needed trip to the NC mountains over the last couple days!  As a result, I've missed half of the linky parties this week :(  On a different note, if you stopped by looking for our kitchen reveal...the project has been delayed a few days.  However, we hope to have the whole project finished by the week-end! I'm crossing my fingers.  

 Well we had another fabulous edition of Frugalicious Friday last week!  I saw fun n' thrifty finds, ca-ute crafts and talented Diyers.  To those of you who linked up...you guys rock!  I hope you found some great ideas surfin' those links and got inspired to go revamp something yourself. 

We've got another winner to announce today from our csn giveaway, but first here are a few favorites from this fun day all about gettin' creative!

Mandi from Tidbits from the Tremaynes shared her Pottery Barn knock off fruit signs she made from some old scrap wood.  Now the words in the Pottery Barn version are in English.  But Mandi changed the words to French...I think I love it even more!

Just The Right Angle linked up her fireplace revamp.  You have got to check this out!  Her old fireplace was dark and dated with a shiny brass surround and a boring mantle...zzzzz!  But this new fireplace is sleek and modern with a whole new minimalist look.  Two words here people...amazing transformation!

Bird, yup that's what she calls herself, from Bird Crafts shared her Spring decor finds including these painted up candle sticks.  So light and airy...I love these!

Allison from House of Hepworths combined a cheese dome with a candlestick, painted them black and made one fabulous cloche for her kitchen!  Wow...super cute and functional too.

Finally Kendra from Creative Ambitions shared her amazing transformation.  She took a simple warehouse pallet and made a garden bench.  Doesn't this photo below look just like a picture straight from Country Living magazine?  Now that's thinkin' outside the design box...love that!

Okay onto our giveaway.  If you'll remember csnstores.com offered a chic set of coctail napkins to one lucky winner.  And without further delay, using a handy number generator from Random.org, the winner is ...

Congratulations Meg you are going to love having these napkins for your next coctail party!  Send me your contact information so I can have csn ship this set out!

Well Frugalicious Friday is on again for this Friday, have you got your projects ready?  Don't forget to link up and share a little about how you find fabulous because we want the scoop on your thrifty style!  See you then, if not before.
