I fear I pull things out of junk piles, too -- which is why I'm having a little hoarding problem in my house... but you had great finds! Thanks for the bird reminder. A friend who recently died had left me with many craft supplies, including some small birds that have found their way onto birdhouses and peat pots (thank you, very much!). But the larger ones don't really "fit" that and now I have a great idea, thanks to you. I'm finally feeling well enough to get into the art mode again. I see glitter in my day.

My favorite "Karla must re-do" is when you rented the bathroom at the antique mall because you really wanted to repaint it - and it looked 1000% better!

It had to be done, Beth! It was a total waste of my time, but I couldnt stop myself.

I understand exactly what you mean about rescuing things. I have a really hard time throwing things away because I always think that surely I can fix it or find a different purpose for it.


Love your revamped dove with crown and your "dewdrop" baby girls is getting prettier every day ! :o) Sue


First birthday already?! Wow!!

You do a wonderful job saving and fixing up. Please never stop. I love to see what you've created out of something "unloved". Have a great week, Karla! - Kathy

Happy Birthday, baby Dewdrop! Love your bright eyes!

SHOOT! I got to the rings too late! ...they're all gone!!! Let me know if you get more!

Oh I remember when she was born -- how is it possible that it was a whole year ago! Happy birthday Dew Drop!


Happy Birthday, Dewdrop!
