Outdoor entertaining is one of the great joys of summer. Until, of course, the bugs invade.
Looking for an inexpensive solution to costly sprays? Try a cluster of mosquito-repelling potted plants.
Grouped together near a seating area on your deck or patio, they make a pretty and lush addition to your outdoor landscape while also protecting you and your guests.
Check out One Kings Lane’s article Easy Update: Mosquito-Repelling Potagerie for more information about how a trio of lush potted plants will have you saying good-bye to bug spray.
Sometimes, all a room needs is one. single. punch.
Like the room above, featured on projectnursery.com:
The fun ceiling treatment really makes a defining statement…and it is an inexpensive statement, at that.

Remember my post the other day about decorating with maps? Check out this cute idea from Jenn over at Perfectly Imperfect. Her Love Story Map could be adapted in a lot of different ways; maps of the places you’ve lived, the places you’ve traveled, fun things you’ve seen and done, or even just the places you dream of at night!
Check out her simple tutorial! If you make one of your own, be sure to share it with FDG!
How awesome is this lantern by Dana Gibson, as featured on the Traditional Home website? The price tag isn’t exactly a “Frugal Find,” but I bet some of my fellow DIYers might be inspired to try a similar treatment on those yardsale lighting finds taking up space in the garage.
Anyone out there willing to give it a go? If so, be sure to share photos with FDG!

Remember my post the other day about using maps to decorate? Well, it appears to have been quite fortuitous!
Look what I found on sale today at Joss & Main! Several terrific world maps!
The one above lists a retail cost at $150, but Joss & Main is offering it for $89.
And, as if THAT is not enough…this Route 66 Map lists at $98, but is on sale for $61.
What a frugal finds, indeed!
Floral arrangements are like icing on the cake – they offer a sweet, and finishing touch.
Now, FDG is NOT suggesting that readers should run out and buy the fake stuff they sell at your local craft supply store. BUT – when done well – faux arrangements can be just what your decor needs to boost it from fab to FAB-U-LOUS!
It doesn’t get any more high-end than NDI…and right now, they are offering items through Joss & Main!
Don’t get me wrong – these are not, technically, a “frugal find.” One of these arrangements WILL set you back a pretty penny. However, finding them at a discount IS something to blog about!
Check out some of the gorgeous designs they are offering:
