thrifty life styles

 Thrifty Style for me has expanded to include 
what could be characterized as a Life Style.
This blog started out celebrating my clothing finds in local thrift stores.
 As seasons of life move from one to another,
I celebrate OTHER areas of simplicity and frugality.
 My father has come to live with us and as winter passed into springtime,
we celebrate simple and frugal healthy habits.
Walking in public parks and spaces that require no admittance fees
has proven to be a favored recreation in the evenings following
easy and healthy suppers.
And so we stroll...
sharing the sights and scents of nature with those we love...

  1. Stunning photography! The colours of the blossom and the vivid blue sky are just gorgeous.
    Your father looks really fit and healthy. Living with you obviously suits him. x

    1. Seems this year we had to get our noses a little closer to the lilacs to smell them. (Not sure if that's a sign of aging or this particular crop!)

  3. Definitely a feel good post! I have been weeding things here in the house with both sadness and relief. The LESS is MORE. Today I found a notebook of my students' published works...small poems and essays. There were quite a few and definitely in a time before MAP tests sucked the life out of teaching. It was fun then and fun today to remember. But no one will want this notebook so it will be tossed, it's day long gone by. I so appreciate how you are moving into this new phase of your life!

    1. Sadness and relief.... Such a bittersweet balance! It's hard to know where one starts and the other ends, isn't it? Or I guess it's really not a balance, but a blend. Hmmmmmm.

    1. It IS good, Susan. I think I've always lived a fairly simple life, but it takes on different dimensions as "seasons" come and go...
