The Queen Is On A Re-Do Roll!

I don't know what has gotten into me? The "thrifty" bug has bitten me...or maybe it is the HEAT! I have had so many creative ideas racing around in my royal brain, that I had to take off my crown, worried that my head may explode~LOL! The Cranky Queen is on a roll...and...having a ball!
I found this little dish in a trash pile when I was out walking in Louisiana  



Then I added graphics, lace, buttons, vintage paper...
A hand~made tribute to Mothers...
Finished product...The Queen did good! Don't you think?
REMEMBER THIS YARD SALE FIND FOR A DIME?
With a dab of paint, light sanding & stain...
A new toothpick holder was hatched!
Decoupaged paper & cutesy "5 chicks" graphic to lid...
Add toothpicks & it is one cock~a~doodle~doo makeover!
So the Cranky Queen has saved yet another gold coin by recycling trash to treasures.  I challenge you to "go green" & re~style...re~do...re~make.

STAY CALM & BE THRIFTY!

  2. You will be surprised what you can find in a trash pile. My dad used to go each week. It was amazing what he would find and sell it.Enjoyed visiting and seeing all your goodies.

  3. Dang girl! You've been holding out on us! I LOVE the plate collage! Can't wait to see it in person. I'm feeling shamed, though. I've got to get busy and get all those projects out of my head in into action.

  7. First I must say, I am utterly in love with your dogs, xo. And isn't it fun to find little pieces like these, or re-vamp something in YOUR house...into an art piece. I love to do that, out styles are very similar seems to me...you MUST be a Queen. *wink*
