Dollar day do over…an old candle holder.

This one is a short one you guys. This is my dollar day purchase this month. Slim pickings second hand shopping this month in the repurposing department. I saw a really fun farmhouse DIY that used a candle holder like this where they added a really pretty birdhouse to it’s base. I eventually will do…

A sweet summer time treat .

 Food has gone up so much lately. Starting to feel a lot like the 1970’s. Now I know why my parents were so scared back then. I was really little but I do remember having to move in with my Nana to save money.  Even though food prices are going up there are still ways…

It’s country time.

 Took a trip up to the country. We all needed a break from the city. While there I went shopping for vintage items. I mostly bought books. I also found some little storage containers for organizing small art supplies of mine. An old chocolate tin. I think it’s from the 1920-1930’s. And a really pretty…

Dollar day do over…repurposing a vintage jewelry box.

  “ When I make of my hands, I give of my heart.”  I went out junking the other week and came across this jewelry box. It was a little worn on the corners but I didn’t mind since I like worn and rustic things. Means they were loved. Like an old stuffed toy from…

Dollar day do over….candles.

“ The greatest wealth is to live content with little.”                               Plato Sometimes when out shopping on bargain days thrifting I will come across huge candles for $1. The candles are burned half way or a little beat up but they can be repurposed by melting them down and re-jarring them. This is the first time…
