Made a run to our local thrift store and picked up a few cheapy items……
I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with them exactly….
But I had seen old cake pans made into tiered holders and thought….maybe…..
The old wooden tumbler was just a warm piece of wood….
The straw or woven cup…..I have a later plan for it.
I stretched the Valspar leftover paint samples as far as I could with more water…..
If anyone ever tells me that i can’t do this…..
I won’t listen.
Because it works for me.
And I did this while making my thighs looks as big as humanly possible while my daughter took this photo.
Aren’t pictures of cows in right now in blog land?
Does this count?
Ok, I will stop the self – yucky talk.
I think I need a larger stool.
Ok, for real.
See this little tiled trivet….I just loved it……
I will be making the 1.99 photos behind it into chalkboards…..later…..
But look at how all of these goodies look like now.
Candlestick and old cake pans…….trivet…….
Old wooden tumbler….holds water…..and perfect for a rustic simple flower arrangement.
Each piece was 49 cents.
Not really sure about my layered pans yet…..
They don’t feel really stable.
My thoughts were little fall pumpkins soon……
Linen napkin storage for my dining room table….
Still processing that one.
Now about the Craigslist 501 and warning.
I have a great, intelligent friend that is selling some high ticketed items on Craigslist.
She has a very friendly, interested buyer that is hearing impaired and cannot communicate by phone.
The buyer wants to send a cashiers check and then come pick up items.
She emailed about it….because it didn’t feel just right.
THAT MY FRIENDS IS YOUR WARNING…….
IF IT DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT……LITTLE WEIRD……IT IS.
God gave us our sense of instinct for a reason.
I googled hearing impaired and Craigslist……
And tons of similar email scams came up.
My friend was smart enough to wonder if it was real or not.
There are other scams that say……”I am stationed in Afghanistan….will wire the money….or am selling something that i have in storage because i am overseas and need you to wire and then pick up…..
They are scams……
If you aren’t sure.
Google the story they are giving you.
Literally copy their email. Paste it into google and you will be surprised what will come up.
It is sad….but there are tons of scammers and creepy people out there.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
Hope you enjoy my little projects!
I think my favorites are the wooden little tumbler….then my tiered pans…..and the trivet now lives at Beaches Coastal and Creations…..
PS…..she loved my stuff!
I can’t wait to tell you guys more about them.
You can order your AS straight from them.
They are awesome!
They are going to be carrying upscale shabby chic pieces……and they are in the perfect location to do this……at the beach!!!
I am so proud to be a part of their team! I mean….I’m like the bench warmer….but hey, waterboy….bench warmer….that’s still a part of the team isn’t it?
Let me know your thoughts and loving hearing from you guys.
Follow on Facebook if you haven’t yet. Getting ready to do a giveaway on Facebook and I am late on the Facebook train and would really like to build it up……share the love people and share with your friends. Got any ideas on how I can grow my Facebook?
Like my little goodies?
Can’t wait to hear!
