I knew those odd little iron stands I've been hanging onto would finally be used for something! I love how my thread spool collection looks on them.

My wood box collection is dangerously approaching "hoarder" status--I think they are reproducing....I don't remember buying all those! Better start to think of something to make out of them--They are like a blank canvas....I hope I can come up with something different to do with them.

Been working on this chandelier made with my pearly crosses--not sure how this will turn out yet.

I've got WAY too much going on these days working on two on-line stores, finding merch. for several locations, stocking up for Country Living Fair, and doing business writing for Iron Accents. Of course all this takes a back seat to hanging with my best bud granddaughter Kayla this summer! Oh...and that @#!! surgery really slowed me down!

Your box collection is amazing. It looks great on its own! Your creations always amaze me and I just love all of them!

Oh, I must have missed something. I hope your surgery went well and that you are recovering quickly.

Love your collections, and the crosses are sensational.

Wish Missy Moo a happy Birthday, I know it was coming up. I hope you get to have some fun adventures over the summer with your granddaughter.

Love you wood box collection!

The boxes look your creations in them and call it a display wall!

Wow, those drawers really 'draw' me!! They're so cool! I have a thing for drawers too..but YOU have the motherload!
Do you have a wall you could put them all on, very much like you have it here, but then fill the spots with all kinds of lovelies. make the singles into a single 'unit'. They look great!!!
Blessings, Doni

SURGERY...we ain't got time for no stinkin' surgery...hope recovery is going well!!!
I haven't been out buying so much lately, mostly because of lack of funds, but the garden and hen house occupants demand so much of my time. It's 55 degrees this morning, finally got to turn off the air for the 90 plus weather we've had of late.

Love the wall of boxes, I'm just glad my garage isn't bigger(that's a lie)...I could hurt myself...ha!

Enjoy that grandaughter...AND SUMMER!!!

I'm loving the cross chandelier! Can't wait to see it when you get it done!

What an adorable chandelier! I see the same Blogger Troll who stole my followers kidnapped yours, too!

I know I have a tendency to drift off and get distracted...but when the heck did you have surgery? I sure hope everything is mending.
Loving the "hoarder's wall". It looks like art all stacked up like that.

I would love to buy some boxes....Would you be willing to sell some?

Hey girl, thanks for the sweet comments! Love the string on the iron stands; what a great idea! You know, the boxes look terrific the artistic way you have displayed them. Bet they would sell themselves at a show with nothing done to them! But knowing your talent, you will come up with some ingenius idea to make them a speacialty.

Sorry you had to have surgery. Hope you are healed and back in action. After all, that darling granddaughter wants you to have the best summer with her. How wonderful you can do that!

Looks like you haven't slowed down with all you have going. Country Living Fair, I was thinking of trying to get in. Think it is too late for Atlanta show?
