Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose...

...whatever you call it, it's smart. It's what most of my most creative blog friends do. We love to take something ordinary and unwanted and bring it back to life.  For a while, I was known to spend every Saturday morning scouring flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales for stuff...old plaques, unwanted wood boxes and discarded frames and furniture. I wish I still had the time. My job has taken over my life lately and I barely have time for family and exercise. However, I've gathered quite a collection over the years--enough to keep me busy in my spare time.
Here are some projects of the past...we'll start with frames. Next post...maybe boxes?

See you next time for some more repurposed creations!
