Three Projects Finished







Nest Box, an order for someone.

Framed Friends Collage, another order.

And a second Friends Collage, same order.

Short and sweet. Lots still left to do! =)

Here are a couple of my thrifty finds this week.
(oh, should have saved this one for Blue Monday!)

I love this metal box. It was a couple of dollars.
Would you believe I saw one at an estate sale for $10.00?
I thought I was paying a lot at $2.00!
And of course my sweet fella is saying,
"who on earth would pay anything for an old rusty box?".

How may of you would have bought it??

and this sweet treasure!
Anyone for a game??

Adorable work (play), looks like you had a lot of fun! My friend just pulled out an old lunch box in that rusty state....rust is good! She will either make something real cute out of it or sell it in her etsy. Rust is in!!!

You do such great projects! I love how they all turned out. I am curious as to what you will do with the blue box. Hmmm....

Have a great week!

I love all three of your projects, but the take time box is so sweet!
as for the rusty blue box, I probably would have passed, only because I prefer wood. but it definitely has character!

Wonderful projects. I could design a room around any one.
I know what you mean about certain other people not seeing the potential in a rusty box. But give him time, he'll get it.
