Summer so far....

As a teacher, I always look forward to summer and think that I am going to get soooo much done....I've been teaching for 13 years and have yet to go through a summer and get everything  accomplished on my to-do list. And, I've decided that the summers before I had kids that I must have been completely lazy. I should have been getting TONS of things done back then!!

Anyway, among the baseball games, swimming lessons, wrestling camp, and science camp, I have managed to get some junking and creating done....


Vintage sales rack for Duratite....not sure what that was, but liked the color and size

This bird cage is not that old...any ideas on HOW to make it look older? It came with a great stand, that is also not too old!

TONS of old berry baskets....I have some great plans for these!
70's wastebasket?? Add some white spray paint??

I've not only been busy creating for Summer Junk Market (coming up July 27-28), but also for another flower shop that is now featuring my creations. My good friend, Allison, opened The Back Porch Flowers and Gifts in Marengo, Iowa last Monday, July 2nd. Here are a few of the items that are featured at her shop...


















And...the good news is that lots of my stuff has already sold! Need to get back to work!
