Frugal Friday

We bought feather pillows awhile ago and we've been dealing with feathers everywhere since.  I made a new cover for them this week with material I have on hand.  This is the before and after picture.

I've been needing a new kitchen cabinet and we found a new one on Facebook Marketplace for $65.00.  It was half price of the one online.  It pays to be patient and wait (I keep reminding myself)!  

After three hours tada!  I would have never ever got this put together without my husband.  We have had an agreement over the years ..I read the directions and he does what I tell him (ha ha that doesn't sound right but you know what I mean). We are getting better had it and I'm proud to say nothing was backwards or upside down.  

I download a free book from one of my favorite authors, Enduring The Lie: Ashley's Triumph, and read it last night.  Jean Kuhnke books are so encouraging and relaxing and usually can be read in one setting.  I believe it was what helped me sleep a good 8 hours.  I post free and low cost books throughout the day on my Facebook page, Vickie's Kitchen and Garden.

Other news:  Ok, I'm beginning to think we might be jinxed guys, our oven quit this past week.  I ordered a heating element a couple of days ago so it should be coming in soon.  It's an older electric oven without too many gadgets so I'm hoping it's a easy, cheap, and fast fix.  I'm going to borrow my daughter's toaster oven this morning till the part comes in.  I've never wanted to bake so bad and not have a way to do that!   

What's been going on in your neck of the woods?

We went six weeks without any stove in the early summer while we waited for a new control board to come in. That was horrible so I know what you mean about wanting to bake. I got by with a one eye hot plate and a toaster oven but it was not a good time for decent meals here. I hope you are back up and baking soon!

6 weeks! Goodness this fix better work! Yes, I got her toaster oven and that's already helping today. I need to bake with Christmas coming up.

Good fix on the pillows and nice cabinet. Hope you get your part and get it fixed quickly.

Me too..although I really love and thank God for the toaster oven I borrowed from my daughter.
