Beautiful (and frugal) gift idea!

These were our Teacher appreciation gifts :)
Super easy to make!
My child had a lot of fun counting and placing the glass pebbles inside the bowls :-)

Cost: $1.50 per one :)
I shopped at the Dollar Tree:
6 glass bowls - $6
3 bags of decorative pebbles - $3 
roses from our garden - free :) 

The gifts were well received :-)
 The bowls can be used over and over again 
(just add another fresh flower).

I think these DIY flower compositions would be great for Mother's Day !

Frugal tip: Smith's

*** Smith's Food & Drug Stores ***

Sunday morning is a good time to shop at my local Smith's (Louisiana & Montgomery). I look for the Manager's Special on cheese and ripe bananas (that I use for smoothies). Score!
P.S. I always use my Smith's rewards card :)

What do you like buying at Smith's?

Albuquerque Home & Garden Show 2015

My family and I went to the Albuquerque Home & Garden Show today. I enjoyed meeting new people, learning about local businesses and watching artists at work. I went there looking for ideas and I feel I got inspired!  Now I want to plant a year-round garden, grow gourds and introduce improvemnts to our house (it's good to have brochures and business cards for future reference!). We came back home with a lot of freebies :-) And then a big surprise! I won one of the giveaways! Hurray! It's from Metal Depots - I will post a picture after I pick it up :)

Here are some photos from today:
