Want the perfect housewarming gift? Well, guess what? This cute chalkboard, started out as a yard sale mirror.
Went junkin’ today…….
Did you ever read this past post about going Junkin’?
If not….I think you would enjoy it. Click, here, and then get right back and enjoy this before and after.
But today……I went Junkin’ and I was looking for a “housewarming” gift idea.
One of Freebirds best friends and her husband, just bought their first house.
CAN YOU IMAGINE?
21 and her first house. She and her hubby should be very proud.
Makes me a little sick that one of Freebirds friends is married….and buying a house.
That shouldn’t be?
How did it go from this? (they are the two in the back)
To this? (they are the two on the right)
And fast forward to this……4 years ago……..
It has went too fast.
And now we are shopping for “housewarming” presents?
My heart hurts.
Lest I start getting misty, let me move forward with this conversation.
Freebird needed a gift……she wanted something special…and for me to make it……so, I went junkin’.
Which leads me to:
What can you do with an outdated mirror that they were asking $10.00 for and you were able to get for $5.00?
(It’s a little foggy due to the 747 degree weather and camera that was in house with a/c)
Let’s see what we can do…..
“Cankles” not included.
She loves it.
Freebird and her BFF.
We love her BFF…and her hubby.
They have known each other since the 2nd grade.
I can remember like yesterday.
The days passed so swiftly it hurts.
My heart can’t stand it.
Where did it go?
My consolation is in who these two little girls have become.
Wonderful woman and as I have said before……I never even dreamed as beautiful as they became…inside and out.
Welcome to your new home “BFF”.
We are proud of you!
