Breaking away from the Raised Garden Craze: Vegetable Garden with a Brick Border


Happy middle/late summer everyone! My next few posts are all about gardening! I know, I know I promised I was going to do a continuation of my window post but alas my DIY ADD strikes again so my window is on hold until after I share my new found love of growing my own healthy foods. Plus I had to get this gardening series in before the fall or I’d have to wait until next year and that just won't do. So yes, I'm super late posting this "should have been springtime" project but it literally took me forever to complete my garden because well, I’m a novice gardener and I did all the backbreaking work by myself at a slower than normal pace.

5 minute DIY Magnolia Wreath for less than $25


I'm kind of obsessed with magnolia wreaths. They blend beautifully with pretty much any decor from farmhouse to cottage to rustic and so many others. My style in my home is a little bit farmhouse, a little bit french country so it was inevitable that I would want a magnolia wreath (or 2 or 3) mixed in with my decor.  I swooned over them for years but never purchased one because I wasn't willing to spend $50-$100 for a large magnolia wreath.

My New Adventure: the Rabbit Hole of Lyme Disease


This post has been on my mind a lot since I found out at a few short months ago that I have Lyme Disease and several tick related coinfections. After debating with myself about letting my readers know, I ultimately decided that yes, Thrifty Artsy Girl is more than just a blog about my DIY crafts, home improvements and the occasional recipe. I've put my heart and soul into this blog and if I can bring awareness about something so personal and it helps even just one person, then I need to share my new journey.

How to Wallpaper Over Textured Walls with No Prepwork



Wallpaper. You either love it or hate it. Or maybe you're indifferent, you've never really put any wallpaper up or experienced the joy of removing old, damaged wallpaper that wasn't your style (insert sarcasm here).
