Trash to Treasure

You know that I have serious issues when I wake up Tuesday mornings and the first thing that pops in my mind is that it's "Trash to Treasure Day". But that's me.. always has been...always will be. I can't tell you how happy I was to find out I wasn't alone in this illness.

This past September while on the Nebraska Junk Jaunt I had the privilege of running into Margo from Margo's Junk Journal. My mom and I walked out of a garage sale and there was Margo taking pictures of the back of our pickup. (It was on the ridiculous side people. We were over flowing with treasures.) We struck up a conversation, she introduced herself and it was Margo that introduced me to the world of blogging. Oh Margo I thank you so much. Needless to say I spent the next half hour calling friends telling them that I had just met a "Professional Junk Guru" .
All that said, here is my trash to treasure.

This is a display that is all made or from Goodwills and local thrift stores.

The tall pedestal bowl was made from a candle holder and wooden bowl.

This of course is an old light cover. $1 baby!!

Before pictures are suppose to come first.. oops. Again thanks for stopping by and head on over to Diane at A Picture is worth a Thousand words @ and also Kjisa and and Kari have a link as well. Visit them over @ plus make your way over to to see a post with the same theory as the above.

Hi Roxanne,
I love it when you can take a couple of insignificant things and create something as eye catching as you did!

You are very creative!

Thanks for linking to 2nd Time Around!

Great recreations! I think that light cover was actually a light in our house when I was growing up.
