 CHAPTER I

 TWO BUCKS A HEAD!!.  TIS' TRUE AT YOUR LOCAL "WHOSEWHATSIT" SHOP.  MINE IS CALLED   "THE RESTORE",  NO TWO VISITS ARE ALIKE BUT TIME IT RIGHT AND YOU MAY HAVE LUCK.   ONE DAY I FOUND THIS CLAY HEAD.  NOT PLASTER, SO QUITE SOLID AND HEAVY.  A MESS OF GRAFFITI ON IT....    BUT A MERE $2!!

Fun with comics and old suitcases

Silly Suitcases

I'm a saver, and junk collector.  I hang on to suff that should probably make it into the recycling bin.. But noooo,  I accrue a couple of months worth of sunday funnies for a purpose.  I'll use them for something. Really I willm, I'm just not sure until I come across something that just screams... this is it, these are the items you've been awaiting... Now let the fun begin!

I wouldn't take these to the airport but I thought they would make adorable end of bed storage or dress up trunks.  They are VERY LARGE suitcases.  Don't they make you smile?

Thanks for your visit. Peace Kelly

Crappy Sewing Table Made New


BEFORE
 A pretty beat up old sewing machine table.  Very heavy and frankly ugly beast with pealing veneer to boot.  But I can see the bones are good and it actually has a nice height for a side table... Could go well with a high armed couch like mine. Hmmmm...


AFTER
Once the  heavy and defunct sewing machine was removed, this piece received a fun new color and distressed finish for the first step.  Orange is the new black!


Houndstooth wallpaper with my own hand cut tree and sun designs on top..  I love modgpodge!
Just needs a few coats of poly to give it the everlasting seal.

Thanks for looking... Peace, Kelly
