Salvation Army: Part 2

How do all those other bloggers out there do it? They always seem caught up on their post. I have a busy couple days and nothing gets posted. I guess I could prepare ahead of time. Wouldn't that be novel. Anyway.....Remember this from my Salvation Army trip?

Well, I've been busy with my glue. I love my heavy duty glue that could hold a house to it's foundation. It's been very good to me.

I experienced my first true Bountiful Basket this weekend (I'm one of the site coordinators and we just opened our first 3 sites here in Casper) and had to wake up at 5:30am to unload the truck. That really doesn't have much to do with anything, but I wanted to show you what I did with some of my produce.

Seeing where the glue came in?  It looks like it was meant to be.

I could wash AND store the fruit in the same container.  Cool!

I love how it looks on our table.  If you just happen to be on my Christmas list this year, watch out.  You never know when one of my finds/creations could turn up in your own home.

That is really awesome! Now I want to scour the local thrift store for a colander and candlestick and put my heavy duty glue to work!

Love it! I have just recently started thrifting and trying to blog on a regular basis but also working full-time and having 2 kids and a hubby makes it tough to post regularly...but since I don't have too many followers I don't guess I am really letting anyone down, right? LOL! I scored a few things this past weekend at Goodwill and recently found out there is a Salvation Army thrift store near my offie so I am hoping to take a lunch hour and head over soon.

Hi Lyndee,
Hopped over from The Creative Blog. I am a recent thrift store hoarder, and have discovered a few candlesticks and plates to transform. Thanks for all your ideas. I like your candlestick/strainer combo! I'm your newest follower, and invite you over to my blog, http://altered-artworks.blogpost.com
