hope you all had a wonderful 4th ♥
my girls have been at summer camp this week that's put on through their school
tons of fun they're havin' :)
i've mentioned before (i think)
that i love garage sales
i don't just love them
i luuuuuuuuurve them
when it's summer time i see no need for Target to even be open
'cause it's garage sale season
and what i love most is finding something that looks like it's beyond it's years of use
and turning it into something usable, and something you love!
so i've been doing a lot of that lately
taking old things and making them new ♥
it started out like this...
lotsa potential :)
a little Mod Podge and some pretty paper ... i had a hard time narrowing down the choices!
it holds all the little tags and scraps for the shop...
i love how it helps keep even the small things organized
this vintage 3M tape dispenser was not from a garage sale, but was my grandpa's :)
he was a wonderful artist, he worked most of his life painting and making signs...
he was very talented
i could kick myself for forgetting to take a before picture
it was dirty & rusty in some spots ... nothing a nice coat of spray paing couldn't fix
i added some pretty paper to each side for some print
i love that i have something from his studio, now in mine ♥
speaking of the shop...
i'm getting super close to being ready to open!
and this is what sat in my front foyer a couple days ago...
shipping & packaging supplies for Sugar 'n Spice
i did a little happy dance
with the front door open
it actually felt official :)
any good trash to treasure finds? please share!
much love ♥
... in Your presence is Fullness of joy...

sweet parties here ... ♥
