More trash to treasure!!!

Hello thanks for visiting! There are several posts to look at since it wouldn't all fit on one!!!! These wooden pieces were bought at a thrift store, glue together and painted white. I love to buy wooden bowls, plates, candlesticks and then glue them together to make serving dishes.

You know it occurred to me that God in His greatness was the first to turn trash into treasure! He takes our brokeness and makes us new again. He makes us white as snow! Wow, talk about divine shabby chic!!!

Hi Debbie,

First, I want to thank you for the wonderful goodies you sent me in the giveaway package! I received it on Saturday, and I love the chicken eyeglasses holder you made! My favorite thing was actually the aqua colored egg though because that's the color of my kitchen and living room. Thank you for including the pretty card you made, too!

I really love your creativity by taking the different pieces and creating new treasures with them. Thanks for sharing!!
