How cool is this???

I’ve recently become obsessed with a “Trash to Treasures” website that I stumbled upon. Though I would not consider myself a “tree hugger”, I do realize that there is way too much trash being dumped into our landfills and I do try to be aware of what I purchase, how much I recycle, etc.

Well, check these out!


I love those and I have to have them!

Unfortunately, we don’t have any old wooden ladders laying around that I can “reuse” for this purpose but I’ve given hubby strict orders to be watching curbside in case someone else does (I’m not adverse to trash picking! LOL!)

Anyone out there got a couple wooden ladders they’re looking to get rid of???

Let there be dust

Okay, so… the television and table lamp have arrived for the living room so, with the exception of a few decorations that I’ll eventually get, the living room is done! Am I excited??? Oh, yeah, just a bit! That was a project beyond projects and finally, the dust has settled.

Oh, wait… did I say the dust has settled??? Who am I kidding??? The dust can only settle if no one is stripping wallpaper, mudding and sanding walls. Which means they would have to be doing something like… sitting still. And my husband is not capable of sitting still. So…. onto the next project. The kitchen! Our goal is to get a new kitchen (cabinets, floor, appliances, etc) next winter but hubby has already started stripping the wallpaper and will apply a coat of primer in preparation for the big work that will be done next year.

It will look great and I really am happy that I have a husband that is able and willing to do such wonderful things around the house but really, I just wanted a dust-free house for a little while. Was that too much to ask???
