A Salvaged Pie Safe


Josh rescued a dilapidated  chest of drawers from the trash...
designed and cut out some legs ,
fixed a drawer and shelves,
 made doors...using some authentic ceiling tile ...
added some trim pieces...and later different knobs than these...
Painted it red and it is in his dining room now.

 a grand babies picture...just because.

I have been on a 4 day camp out with about 50 relatives. I had a birthday yesterday, started back to work (school) today, and will help open a store in October... And William will have surgery Thursday to put stints in the right leg to open some blockage.  What are y'all up too?


Elsie Mae on Market coming soon!


    In deep play

the Junkin' Sistas 

         harkened to the creative echos 

                    of  childhood mud pie days, 

conjuring up endless possibilities, 
they were blessed beyond measure... 



candle sticks, trash to treasure


Josh and I made these ...

I still adore numbers and words...
environmental  print ...

Lit Pumpkins would look cute in Autumn, huh?

While I was working on these I had a huge messy spill.
                                                         Please say, I am not the only one this happens too!

Be My Guest, Be My Guest, Be My Guest!


 It has been some time since I posted about this guest room. I've had it painted this way about 7 years. Now that I have started refreshing it...I decided to post these pics as a "before" postThis graphic little tray was the inspiration for this guest room...yeah,  we have a couple, now that all but one of our five kids are grown and gone.This retro tray made me think of 50's & travel, along with    kitschy souvenirs, picked up at gas stations. It brings back memories of our families Carry All, one of the 1st  SUVs.  I love the blue, when you stare, it becomes an endless sky,so peaceful...even with the brights of the red and yellow... Love the illustrations representing each state, so cool.                                                                                                        I purchased this chair and couch from Goodwill about 7 years ago, for $25.00...the cushions are in great shape, just dated and I covered them with grain sacks, Josh was given, for free... I washed them several times with detergent and Downy...I left the one on the chair right side out, then turned  the couch ones inside out.I had seven matching ones: that just worked out!The couch and chair are "Genuine Cushman Colonial Creations"and are fairly collectible,I first thought they were Oak Ranch.  what I love about them is... a full dinner plate will fit on the arm  and they are  comfortable to sit on & easy to get up from.  If you want to waller you are welcome to stretch out on the bed!We like to waller 'round here.                                                                                       Moma gave me this sweet dresser for our daughter, Jodi, when she was getting a "Big Girl Room"Our windows are 12 x 6 double hung panes and 83 inches long...We have a  veiw of the neighborhood goings on, also among other trees, is a fig tree, the birds favor.This Right here is one of my favorite sitting spots in our home.  This corner has been set up a few ways,Just a chair, a round breakfast table and chairs, a baby bed...I'm guessing it will stay a grand kid corner for awhile, lol.Big Chief Tablets! Who remembers those?  We found the yellow license plate in this old house...JV, my dad's initials.the rusty middle globe was snagged at The P & William and I bought the colored glass vases to remind us of [...]
