Recycling & Repurpose

My sisters and I have been doing a recycling/reopurposing thing since last winter. Here are a couple of items that I have purchased at Goodwill recently and transformed them. I bought this bread box for $8.50 and then repainted and added new knobs, stencil from Cricut and transfers. I love it and I am keeping it. Love it! Just makes me happy!! Love IOD transfers so much!
The black knobs, I think, really make a difference!
This winter scene wooden tray, I got at Goodwill too for $3.00. I painted it with chalk paint. It took 2 coats of paint and then added IOD transfers again. I think it is beautiful. Thinking of keeping this one too! Came out great!
Thanks for stopping by!

End of Summer Fun!

We have had a lot of fun celebrating birthdays, Labor Day weekend and my son, Eric and Sabrina's engagement not to mention a couple of craft fairs that my sisters and I have done. Below is the card I made for my daughter's birthday. She loves watermelon! I think this is my second slimline card. Fun size and style to do! Happy Birthday Lindsey!
Another birthday card below is for a friend's granddaughter who also is a Virgo! The 4 panel pop up card with the panda bears is so adorable!
Now the fun pictures! Labor Day Celebration with friends-these lobsters were 2 1/2 lbs! I haven't had one this big in a long, long time, if ever?!!!
Eric & Sabrina visiting from California and have set their wedding date for next Spring! It was so great to see them because it has been almost 2 years since we have seen them in person!
Last but not least Ollie's first birthday! Here he is with one of his presents! Love his expression! Tomorrow is the last day of summer, here comes fall! Yay!

End of Summer Wedding!

What a beautiful wedding! I will show some pictures below but wanted to first show the card I made for my dear friend for 55+years! Becca Feeken from Amazing Grace/Spellbinders die makes such a beautiful card! So happy I was able to use it again for this special occasion! I used silver glitter paper for the background. Just love it! Here are a few pictures of the wedding that was in Narragansett, Rhode Island just before Hurricane Henri hit there. Perfect day before the storm!
So happy for this wonderful couple! Love their wedding cake that is showing their "babies", Jade and Holly! Such a great weekend - did leave a little early because of Henri but the wedding was perfect! It was just how she wanted it, outside! Congratulations again Mary & Tom!
