"You are so creative!" I have heard that phrase constantly since I was little. DIY, Refashioning, Crafting, Sewing, Woodworking. I love it all! Now I have a place to keep my favorite projects or ideas organized and share them with you!

Gate Flower Vase Giveaway!

Post two in the series I am calling Grandma's Treasures. Upcycling things found at Grandma's house.

Today I have a two grandma combo for you. I am taking these bottles which I had been searching for for years. From Grandma Bauer.

And this wire... From Grandma Bill's garage.

And an old gate I had in our basement for four years. I found it laying behind Grandma Weber's Garage when she moved to her new house. She said I could have it, so I saved it knowing someday I wanted to make this...

Isn't it Fun!

I love the old look of painted wood and hardware next two delicate flowers in their own little vases.

It makes a nice cozy decoration for any front porch.

What do you think? How much do you love it??? Do you know the perfect spot for it, or know the perfect person to give it to? Well this is your opportunity! You can win it!
