My love for junking can never be quenched, at least I don’t see how. There are so many ways you can reuse an item, even to the point of dismantling it and putting it back together in a different form. One man’s trash is another (woman’s) treasure, right?
When I pulled out this particular treasure (or better yet, trashure – treasure from the trash!), I knew exactly what I would do with it. Do you ever do that? Find something and it speaks volumes to you before you can blink an eye? Treasure out of trash, I tell ya.

Your treasures and stories of your grandmothers are wonderful. I love how you transform castoffs into wonderful things you love, that are useful, and that look great in your home. I like that bunny card from a package of ribbon. You’ve found some wonderful trims. That pink one is especially cute! I like your stitch markers too. Very cute! 🙂

What beautiful items – eye candy – my favorites are those fabulous patterns and that yellow basket!
That’s the cutest vintage collection I’ve seen in quite some time. Love the individual pieces in your collection and how cleverly you displayed them.

That bunny binding card is genius! The entire display is wonderful and the fact that it is full of memories makes it even better. I bet it makes you smile every time you walk by it. I love finding trashure!
Isn’t it though? It is one of my treasures for sure, and a reminder to not make waste of what we’re given.

I love your posts. I get lots of blogs from people who redo furniture and stuff, but yours is my favorite. When I don’t have much time, I will look at yours and skip the others. You are so creative. I thought I was creative, but I don’t think I would have seen the possibilities that you do sometimes. I love to use what I have to make things or redo. I love to redo clothes and make them into something else or resize things. I just wish I had more time to do that! You are doing life right. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas.
That just made my whole month…really! Thank you, Sarah. It’s not only fun to create, but sharing it with folks who enjoy it as well is the icing on the DIY cake for me.
