I found some great trash garaging this weekend. Eden came along and was the perfect silent shopper (and back seat driver).
Remember my angel theme in Eden's room. I found this beautiful Dresden Saxony candle holder.
I'm in love. I paid $10.00 for this piece.
This vintage carnival glass bowl I purchased for $2.00 shimmers perfectly in Eden's pink nursery.
From the same yard sale, I purchased this vintage metal-painted rose hook.
Hanging from it is another piece of trash; a used over-the-top fancy boutique swimsuit princess peanut will be sporting this summer.
And these outfits!
$2.00 each and perfect for the growing girl.
I already have outfits for her 5th birthday (don't even think I'm exaggerating)!
I found something else this weekend. What is it?
I found the time and resolved determination to do something crafty (and actually have it turn out decent). I start out small. This $2.00 rod-iron stand from Goodwill went from this:
And my antique angel lamp with the broken shade that I paid $3.00 for went from this:
To this. I found the trashy shade at Goodwill.
And my very questionable $4.00 broken angle sculpture I purchased went from this:
This angel was fixed with a glue gun and some silk flowers I found at Goodwill.
This old toothbrush worked great to clean up the dirt.
I'm happy with the way my projects turned out and can't believe I actually did it. Many of you who read My Dear Trash have blogs that I read too. You are doing some amazing things and inspired me to try something new so I say thank you.
What I do best is EBay. To go along with the Summer Dress theme I'm working on this week, I found these $1.00 beautiful dresses this weekend out garaging.
I wonder what they'll sale for?
