 This was a 2 dollar auction find

Bought it from a guy who got it with other stuff

Asked if he wanted it

He said “NO”

Offered 2 Bucks

Got it!

Always ask if you want something if you think they don’t want it!

Part of the game

He made money and I got a deal

Willow's Grace

Mud Boots and All….

Photo568[1]  ……. 

Ok… It is around 90 degrees outside with no chance of wind  or rain and my fashion forward three year old decides she is going to wear her mud boots to go with me to the shop.  This is the second time during near heat stroke weather that she has decided to wear these.  Neither of these two occasions happened to have any rain in the forecast even.

Willow's Grace

Just Odds and Ends


Here is some stuff I have found or bought dirt cheap to redo or sell.  Haven’t done much the last couple weeks.  Did get mirror painted and more stuff to flea market.  I got the best primitive table and old door about three weeks ago for less than 6 bucks altogether.  Got them in booth before I took pictures.  Have got to start taking pics again.  I get some really cool stuff sometimes too.P1020500

Here comes the sun!!!!!!

 "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

— Maya Angelou

I am back and am ready to face the world again.  Divorce reared its ugly head and sent my life into a tail spin.  Willow and I are in a new house that is starting to feel like home and life is looking brighter everyday.  We are truly blessed and are finding little miracles in ordinary moments. 
I am ready to get to work again on turning trash into treasure and finding the beautiful underneath the layers of dirt and grime.  I so.... want to do this for a living someday.  I feel that it is my passion and am ready to share all of my finds and ideas with all of you. 
Have a beautiful day!

My five dollar ugly duckling has turned

into a swan!  I just love how this turned

out.  The colors really pop!

This was my first so called upholstery

job.  I used the staple gun and it was

so easy.  Hope you guys like the
