I made a bowl rack!

Lookie at what I did!! Remember this shelf? I picked it up about a year ago at a flea, then had it in the bathroom, then moved it to the bedroom, then the kitchen. It's been in just about every room! Then.... during the usual weekend monsoon (wow, this one had a tornado warning with it! and 3 inches of rain that shut down major highways!) I was clicking through my favorite sites, and a light bulb went on. I took this shelf...added two pieces of wood I picked up at the craft shop... painted them.... and.... and....

LOOKIE! A bowl rack!! I am really proud of this one, and so glad to see the heat hasn't totally fried my brain. I was feeling oh-so uncreative in this ridiculous heat and humidity.... and then this idea popped into my head-- and it worked. Goes to show ya... TS goodies can be made over... and made over... and made over! I'll show you the entire dining room after I clean it up!
And the great box I got last week... is now in my bedroom. (also needs a good cleaning)
And... I painted this box that was black and getting lost on my tall bookshelf. I like this mish-mash color. The best thing -- no cost at all! Couldn't get to the TS because of the weather, but as it turns out, I had everything here all along.

Hey everyone who lives in SE Penna! AUNT DAISY'S (http://www.auntdaisys.com/index.cfm)

is having their Fall event on Sept 10th-12th!!! Ewwww, I can't wait!!! This shop is just fabulous and it is a special treat to just walk through it. (Hey Grammy Linda!!! Take note!!!) And it's right down the street (sort of) from Judy Doyle's Cinnamon Stick!! Yippee!!! A double dose!

Well, by dear blogbuds, I'm off to run some errands (before it...rains.) Hope you are staying cool!
