Trash to Treasure BABY!!!!!

I love going to garage sales. I have been doing it with my mom since I was little. It was always just a day the we got to spend without the boys. We would always do the garage sales with Golden Glazed Donut's & then go to lunch once we were beat. Now we have passed the tradition onto Tinkerbell. Granted she hates the car & screams bloody murder EVERY SINGLE TIME we put her back in, but we're learning. (Can everyone say, SLUSHY!!!!)
My mom goes more towards the clothes & I go more towards the, "what can I do with this piece of crap" type things. :)

I got these 2 bad boys for a .10 a piece & just mod Podged some scrapbooking paper on them. I am still going to Mod Podge some paper on the R but ran out of time & just wanted it on the wall.

Next I got these 2 candle holder's because I LOVED all the scrawly details. I took the candle holder part off (with just 1 screw btw) & painted it the same as I did all of my SCREAMING WHITE picture frames & hung them above the doorway going to my kitchen. Once again I have some empty frames & I need to line them up a little better on the sides but I had 2 grumpy babies this weekend. I'm lucky I got ANYTHING done. :)

Enjoy other Trash to Treasure's over with Kimm at Reinvented. I want me that End Table!!!!! Great Job Lindsay!!

My weekend involved a little black dress(well a size 16, but Marilyn was a 14 so WHATEVA), hot pink heels & my tiered cake wrapped present. Check it out!!!!

Instead of just a plain old boring card I found an idea last week here. You put a cookie in a treat bag & circle up some scrapbooking paper. I wrapped them indiviually. One said Congratulations Mr. so & so & the other said Congratulations Mrs. so and so. Then instead of just wrapping our towels & washrags & picture frame I put them in their own boxes & layered them like a cake. Check er out baby!!!!

Oh yeah & a little bit of this, LMAO!!! I scared my mom so bad with this bad boy. I'm thinking I'm going to put it on & stand above Mr. KU & poke him with a stick with it until he wakes up. ha ha!!!!

I just found your blog and wanted to stop and visit! I love what you did with the modge podge and the frames. I'm still learning how to use that stuff...and I'm not very good at it!

I'm going to add you to my favorites so I can come back and visit lots!
