I really was a happy first grader!

This old fan was retrieved from a burn pile.  It is easy to change up for different occasions. If it is someone's special day, highlight them.  Isn't that one great thing about using junk!  I like that no one else has one exactly like me, too. At first I couldn't find what I wanted to use for clips, so I took some bobbie pins and added a little bling, then I remembered a stash of old tie clips! yea, don't you love when you realize you already have what you wanted all along!  This one will be part of our Thanksgiving celebration.  I so love the all white, chippy look; I sometimes try for it, but red always draws me back. HEE HEE.   Thanks, Lezlee

I hate buying the game at the thrift stores! I have been talking my face blue to get a playhouse for my office. My husband is adamant about not doing this. He goes out of town for 2 weeks wait til he gets home. Do you want my phone number? I see people trade boxes of junk in the mail. I would love to do this with you, we both are RED fanatics!

Thanks for all the nice words. I am going to get an ebay sellers account, and have a 'Grand opening' of PO FOLKS Creations. I was thinking of inviting the thrift store managers, and several others. Do you think since my name and what we do is recycling, Cut up grocery bags with a doilie that has the invitation glued to center, rolled up like a scroll tied with my signature red gingham ribbon and a spoon with my business card? Have you ever had a junking party? I am on facebook. Annie Valline (the pofolks creator) The town won't let me use Decorator on my cards as I don't have a design degree. Posted: 2:03 pm on May 16th

Thanks for sharing! And happy Thanksgiving!!
