My First Blog Post, Finally

I've been "mind blogging" for a couple of months now and finally decided to just take the plunge. I've hesitated because I was always worried about having time for a blog; even my website doesn't get updated nearly as often as it should. I decided that this is something I really want to do, so now I can stop lurking in the background and join the fun with such inspiring bloggers.  I'm just so amazed with all the sharing and creativity out there. It's time to come out and share what I do and what I love.
So........

I'll be sharing my flea market, garage sale, estate sale, and antique show adventures. Sometimes I bring home my treasures, clean them up and sell them.......

Sometimes I repurpose what I find and make something fun........

A well used rake and lamp parts can make an interesting picture holder

I especially love making jewelry from bits and pieces of the past.....buttons, typewriter keys, broken vintage jewelry, game pieces, sheet music, rosary beads, hardware, watches, photos, and just about anything else that can be turned into something beautiful and unique.....

  3. I love going through old posts of blogs I like - like yours - and really getting to know the person behind the posts. You are a very talented lady, and I so enjoy seeing your repurposed creations. By the way, the typewriter key intro was a fantastic idea! ;)
