This little piggy and my birthday goodies

Hey there,

I thought that I would share my birthday goodies
that I got from my mom.  I had forgotten to post them until I went to change my blog header and was reminded that I hadn't done so.     I just love it.

Summer thrifty scores

Hey there,

I thought that I would take a moment to highlight
some of the awesome thrift store scores from the summer.  All of the following came from either a thrift store, the Goodwill or Salvation Army.  Just another example of how you can achieve any look on a very minimal budget.  
 This is actually a bowl, I found a set of 6 at the Wacky Wednesday 1/2 off at the Salvation Army.

Curbed cabinet upcycled

Hey there,

Man it's hot outside!!!!!!!!!!
I am sooooo ready for some fall weather.  It's too hot to even get out in the shop and work on anything.  I have a cabinet that I have yet to do anything with because it is so hot... I figure I will get to it once the temp gets into the 80's.

Shutter Headboard and a guest room makeover

Well, the kids are back in school
and it's 100 degrees outside! Even though this has been a very mild summer for us, I am still ready to welcome fall, the cooler temps, the yellow and orange colors showing up all over the landscape, the decrease in daylight.....
