Six pieces of wood purchased at St. Vincent de Paul for thirty cents each...not sure what Im going to do with them, but a die-hard junker never walks away from a bargain or a challenge, right? Oh, and take note of my mindful cat Winnie supervising, upper left corner.
Realizing I was overthinking this, I pushed two of the wood slats next to one another, plunked them down on the dining table, added the bowl and candle....instant centerpiece. Added bonus: Winnie approved also.  ;-)

These forlorn pieces of wood (six total) were a steal at the thrift shop for thirty cents each. I felt a project coming on, but I had no idea how insanely easy it would turn out to be....

I'm actually a long-time lurker, just getting started out in the junking business. I'm about to open my first booth, with bigger plans down the road. My shop will be called Fiona & Twig, although my name is Anne (that's another story)...
The online community has been so supportive of me thus far, I'd love for y'all to come visit me on my blog!
Hugs,

Welcome...I know what you mean about it being "intimidating" to post. It took me about 9 months to get up the nerve...but beware, once you start, you just can't stop :) Take care, Laurel Posted: 11:33 am on August 25th

It's a bit intimidating to post your first project here on JMS....you folks are all so ridiculously talented. But I sucked it up and decided what-the-hey! Thanks so much to all of you for your inspiring creations, and Sue, thanks for the warm welcome....you're who I want to be when I grow up! :-)
All the best,
Anne
