  1. Thank you so much for the recommendation! I’ve been looking for a new book to read! Looking forward to Frugal Friday! Love and hugs!

  2. What a beautiful quote. I will save this in my journal. As a mother who has felt the loss of a son, these words bring happiness to my heart. The book sounds wonderful, and I’ll have to buy it. Thank you…Bonnie in cold WI, where the temp is -2, but feels like -21…Winter is truly here…

  3. How about beauty tips, makeup,hair coloring, nails. Also DIY h ome decor.

  4. Sounds like a good read, Brenda. I am, for the first time, keeping a list of the books I read this year. I have tho’t about doing this for years. Finally, I am doing it! Not that it’s an original idea at all; just that I’ve always been curious about how many books I actually read in a year. I list the book and author then a brief note about how I felt about the story.

    I’ve been trying to think of another thrifty topic. Let’s see–how about how to obtain art and craft supplies cheaply? I am always looking for supplies to use without breaking the bank as buying paints and other items at the regular stores gets to be costly.

    Have a lovely weekend, Brenda, Ivy and Charlie. Hope you get some sunshine!

  5. I’d love to see some tips on how to decorate my large fenced patio with plants and flowers really, really cheaply. In Florida where plants go to die.

  6. OH MY! This is definitely on my to read list. Thank you so much for sharing this information.

  7. How about frugal get-away’s. Short ones, maybe an hour or two, or longer, a day trip, a weekend or even a bus ride around town. Sometime I long to roam but money’s tight and mobility is an issue. Thanks for your book revues, too. I recently read “Dog Songs” by the late Mary Oliver – a dog lover’s book for sure.

  8. I am a starting gardener, know almost nothing and would like to approach gardening herbs and vegetables frugally. Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

  9. I am looking forward to reading about frugal meals. That’s the one I suggested and have been waiting for. Thank you Brenda.

  10. Sounds good!
    (I am reminded in a way of a story about women facing extreme adversity in a little book called “Two Old Women” by Velma Wallis.)

  11. Thanks for this, Brenda.
    Have requested the library order it as it sounds so uplifting.?

  12. I will have to look for this book since I have lost a daughter. I’m not quite as stuck as Masha but certainly nowhere near as courageous as Sally and Kitty. It sounds like a very interesting story.

  13. This sounds like a very good book! I love reading your book reviews, you write beautifully.

    I am off to buy this on Amazon!
