Stash To Treasure Saturday

Welcome to
Stash To Treasure Saturday,
where some sad, forgotten,
and unloved bits and pieces 
are given a beauty makeover
and a new life.

This week's abandoned hidden treasure
comes from a Goodwill score.
I purchased 2 dozen wood frames
which had been used as table markers
and then donated to the store.

It took a good sanding to prep the frame for paint.
I used black chalk paint,
followed by a light dry brush application of white chalk paint.

I added paper and a gingham ribbon to complete.
(FYI: Merry Christmas die - Tim Holtz)

it's Shop Small Saturday,
and I am running an Etsy Cyber Sale
in both shops
(button links are at the top of my right sidebar).

Merry Hugs,

Both shops are on sale beginning right now,
and ending on Cyber Monday.
That's 7 days of savings
on everything in both shops!


Supplies & Vintage,

are all 20% off with any $25.00 purchase.

I will combine purchases made from the two shops,
simply make your purchase and I will refund you the 20%.

Merry Shopping!

Stash To Treasure Saturday

Stash To Treasure Saturday has returned!
This piece was made back in early 2016,
and sat unloved in my shop for a bit of the 2+ years since.

A little overhaul was called for,
okay, more than a little.

Lots of new bits from Tim Holtz 
were combined with vintage items I have collected.

Funny side note,
these icicles are vintage (sadly, the last bit of them),
but Tim Holtz has a reproduced version.

I kept the vintage "wallpaper" backgrounds the same,
but went over everything else with a light coat of chalkpaint.

"Oh What Fun!" this project was.

It is available to purchase at

Wishing you a blessed weekend!
