Reproduction favorite napkin, a cookie cutter and some ribbon. Found the dotted swiss curtains for  .50!
door turned into jewelry box. Picket fence attached for necklaces, mirror added, vintage half slip on top, pink ribbons hang (stapled to door) to hold earrings. Teacup, made a bow and stapled it to frame for rings.
Sorry about the pic quality. I found two cherubs that match, candle ring that looks like grass with sugar on it, hot glued it to a brass candlestick. Then I found my kids two baby lockets, made tiny necklaces with the picture locket around their necks.
again I apologize for the blurriness. The microwave was mounted above the stove. It broke. Hubby went out of town, I got it down, huge, I mean really huge hole behind the chalkboard. I hot glued the chalkboard after I nailed it up, just so he wouldnt know. I also broke off a knob on the stove. The nut sheared off. So I, remembering Tommy Boy, hot glued the handle on and when he went to use it, he said, Thats weird. I said What did you do Richard? haha
finally finished the kitchen island I made out of a dresser, layed it on its side, chalkboard painted, added chicken wire with fabric behind it, cutting board on top. Other pics on my projects pages. Only need to put a skinny board behind the frame with a magnet to make it stay shut.

Every morning I sit down with my sketch pad and drink my coffee, and just think of weird stuff to make, draw it color it in, go back to the ideas later, and adjust them. Then I go alley hunting or to the thrift stores with my list of stuff to make it. If you can believe it, Everything in my home cost less than 30.00 to scrounge up, except the electronics.

I wanted to do the playhouse office, but too broke. Instead, it will be a home office. The back 'fake porch. I want to make the main wall look like the front of a house. Theres a door there too. Thanks so much, Annie Posted: 1:16 pm on April 9th
