Hello, friends and Happy Holidays to you all. Seriously, I cannot believe it is the last week of 2016! I hope you had a blessed Christmas and can look forward to the New year.
Being that it’s the wind down of the year, provided a time to look back upon Thrifty to Nifty’s journey. What fun it was to recall the many treasures, projects, and events. I have chosen to share with you my 5 Favorite Thrifty Decorating Posts from 2016 Let’s begin…
#1 THRIFTY WINTER MANTLE
This Easy Thrifty Winter Mantle post was completed in January as a result of the all the Christmas decorations coming down and being packed away. This blog post also shows how easy it is to transition from a Christmas decorated mantle to a mantle that can be left for the remaining of the winter. See here, how I used items already owned to make the transition.
#2 Thrifty Decorating with Ironstone
As the winter cold dragged on, I continued to decorate around the house. Using thrifty finds are important to me in creating a warm, lived in home. Here, Thrifty Winter Decorating with Ironstone, combined ironstone that I found at a church sale with some I already owned to create a winter table scape.
#3 Thrifty Spring Decorating
Spring decorating definitely made the top 5 favorites. Here I was able to completely decorate with all thrifty finds – no cost decorating. I use this technique quite often. I call it, ” shopping my stash” Thrifty to Nifty’s foundation is reusing favorite owned pieces over and over again in ways throughout the house .

#4 Thrifty 4th of July
In this post, a quaint and simple vignette was created using items found at a garage sale and a flea market. Combining them together resulted in an outdoor decor scape that could last throughout the month. Knowing me, it probably stayed the entire month. You can read the complete post here.
#5 Thrifty Kitchen Decor
This post share was the easiest project to do. With a few items from around the house, some stain and spray paint, an adorable kitchen decoration was completed. Step by step directions are provided. You will just fall in love with the end result.
It was great to look back at 2016 and find my favorites. It truly has given me direction to where Thrifty to Nifty will be headed. My hope is to continued to be inspired by my thrifty finds and share with all of you what I can create with them. Stay tuned in 2017. There will be some BIG physical changes taking place. Here’s to a AWESOME New year!! Until then……
