Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: The Penny Worthy Project


The Penny Worthy Project

Have you ever seen a noise maker like this?

I didn't buy it the first time I saw but when I went back and saw it again I decided I needed to buy it. I've never seen a little wooden noise maker like this, I have several noise makers but none like this. I'll be putting it away with our New Years Eve supplies, pretty sure there will be a fight over it too.

I picked up a few Architectural Digests to browse through. The local thrift store gives magazines away so whenever I see a few I'm interested in I grab them. When I'm done I re-donate them, as a matter of fact I donate any magazines I happen to get.

This vile bright orange fabric is perfect for a couple accent pillows on our bed. We have a turquoise/white bed spread and I've been looking for 3 months for a piece of orange fabric. Not being in a hurry to make the pillows covers made it possible to find enough fabric for 50¢. I could have easily bought the fabric brand new but it's the thrill of the "not buying retail hunt" that I enjoy.

And one bit of interesting excitement for me this week, I won a giveaway over at Cheerful Thrifty Door. I never win anything so this is neat for me. On that note I want to encourage everyone to make sure you keep coming back because my 3rd blog anniversary is coming up and I have an awesome giveaway dreamed up.

How about you, did you find anything exciting this week?

Peace and Love--


  1. Absolutely love that little wood nosie maker. Have never seen anything like that.

  2. Congratulations on your win! The little wooden noise maker is very unusual. How will you decide who gets to use him?

    I love that you could find exactly what you needed to make your pillows; it just took a little patience and persistence! Way to go!!

  3. That is my absolute favorite shade of orange, if not my favorite color. I'd have snatched it up in a heartbeat, too!

  4. Thank you for hosting yet again! The noisemaker is very neat.

  5. This meme has been added to the list of frugal linkies at Link Rink.
