What I have been upto....

Last week was a busy week of repurposing....

This piece I had repurposed lasy year. But really wasn't happy with it...Now I love the new look.....I think it shall be crowned..Charlie...

Polly is going off to Portland....I think she will fit in perfectly...

I have been making tons of necklaces at the moment with  broken pieces of jewelry..I must admit I'm quite addicted....

Im hoping to get them in the same Boutique that is selling my rings...

This one should be finished this week........

Weekend finds

This weekend was a whirlwind of lunches with friends,walking with hubby,going to see the craziness of the bay to brakers race(pics to follow)and thrift shopping..
Here are some of my finds...

This one you might say why Kelly???But one it was free off the streets of SF and two hubby and I are renewing our vows in July..We are having the party in our back yard and I felt I could use this piece...And truthfully its really hard for me to see these little souls just sitting on the street..

I really wanted olive green converse but as they are 45.00 thats not something im williing to spend...So imagine my surprise as I head into goodwill last week and what do I find for 4.99 yes the shoes!!!!!ok they arent converse. But, Im not a name brand kinda girl. I just thought converse were the only ones who had that color..
Plus I also picked up these shorts and sweater as well..The total outfit cost me16.99...yey me..
Have a great Monday everyone..

Love the ugly....

I love getting or finding pieces of furniture that are broken,ugly,discarded and heading to the tip... And turning them into something that is useful,beautiful and safe from the tip for another 20 plus years..

So I thought I would show you a few of the pieces I have done over the last couple of years..

As you can see. Some, I have before and after pictures but sometimes I forget, like the last one to take the before..
I have to tell you though I love doing this...My dream is to one day have a barn where I can work on these lovelies ..But for the moment my craftroom, backyard, basement will have to do..
Have a great day..
