Throw Aways

Isn’t it amazing that this adorable cupcake display started life as a mattress? 

It’s like how God takes each of us – whatever we look like and however we started life and transforms us into something beautiful.  That’s something to smile about! I like finding “throw aways” and turning them into something useful or pretty again. From bed springs to old greeting cards and even cardboard egg cartons.

I hate to just throw away all those pretty birthday and Christmas cards – but they don’t do me much good gathering dust either, so I have turned them into cute gift tags. A new way to share those beautiful scenes.

Last year, I was privileged to participate in the Salvaged sale in person and it was great fun. Two days of great company and enjoying people find just the right goodie for their home or a gift. This year I will participate in spirit, and I look forward to hearing all about the great finds each of you will make at the 2012 Salvaged for Good sale!
