2nd Hand Tuesday


After looking through all the things
I rescued today with plans to
breathe new life into
and give another chance to be loved,
mosey on over to Diane's to see
what else has been given a 2nd chance.
Hit a thrift store today that I hadn't
been to in about a year. All
this stuff must have been waiting
just for me...how nice!


The other day I was surfing the web
looking for fun cool stuff and
came across an old sewing machine
vignette that I just had to do.

Usually I have to wait longer than
one day to come across something
I am looking for. WOO-HOO!


Sweet Life Adventures on the
Way to Paradise

I mean is that not the truth?


Another weakness of mine...pillows.
They are to me what a canvas
is to a painter.

Soon I will enter my new studio
and baby the saw dust is gonna fly!

The man I bought the sewing
machine from asked if I had a shop.
"No, I said, I am in the collection mode."
"You will some day, you will," he said.

Smile and your feelings will follow!

I didn't know you liked old sewing machines...I have a couple of them I bought when we lived in England...they're in great shape except not hooked up for electricity which I think is better! I love all your finds...lovely!

Too often we try to choose and control things we cannot.

Too seldom we choose to control what we can ...our attitude
