My creations are on Fire!

~Good Morning~ I hope you all are having a wonderful day!  I am so excited to tell you that a friend of mine who recently opened her own scrapbooking/photography studio is wanting some of my crafts to help decorate her gorgeous studio.  It is so vintage and primitive so I think my creations will fit right in.  I have had so much fun refurbishing some of my treasure and great garage sale finds and I sure hope that ladies will like them too.  Its been so hot and humid here in Nebraska and when we woke today it was nice and cool...a great relief!  I best get back to the craft room....hope you enjoy some of the pictures that I have provided you and I am sure there will be more to come.

A Bargain of a day!

Happy Saturday my friends~I am so excited to share with you some more great treasures that I found yesterday and this morning at some local sales.  The old window and wreath was $1.50, shelf $3.00, cupboard $1.00, red gas can $1.00, old metal lunch box $1.00, little shelf $.50...so a grand total of $8.00, can you imagine going to a store or antique shop and what it would have cost me.  I have BIG plans to distress the shelves and the cupboard...so stay tuned for a later post on how they turn out.  I am also so excited to tell you that I have a friend who just recently opened up her own scrapbooking/photography store and is willing to sell my crafts in her store...so needless to say, I better get busy and get my paint brush and sander to work.
I sure hope that you are having a great weekend and remember to sign up for my summer giveaway on my last post, it ends June 20th...it will be here soon.  I need to go for now, we have a BBQ at some friends house later today and I need to go make a taco salad to bring to it.
Blessings~

Garage Sale Heaven

Happy Friday Everyone!  Today was such a fun day with my kids and I .  We went to town and hit over 35 garage sales....I found wicker baskets, a shelf to distress, wreaths, 2 primitive plaid towels, and a wooden cookbook shelf.  I spent around $35 for all that you see in this picture.  I just love a bargain and especially when I have so many uses for all these items whether it be crafts or other decorating ideas for our home....I hope you all have a great weekend and starting next week I am going to have a summer giveaway....check back with me on Wednesday to see just what it will be....
Blessings~
