What Happens to the Stuff?

Hi Friends!
Happy April!

Hope you had a nice and Blessed Easter

Yes, what happens to the  stuff  treasures we find junkin?

Some time I just never get around to posting about them
or sharing my finds before they get a redesign and fill the shelves in my shop.
In my mission to do better
I thought I'd show a few of those goodies recently completed
most off to new homes.

I think I may have showed you this pretty mint yarn I found at Hobby Lobby.
It's so soft and comfy.
It was so much fun creating this in my signature lace throw with matching pillow.
This one was a smaller size 
and perfect for a baby or spring accent on a small chair in a cottage setting.

I found these darling shakers at Target.
They got a few roses painted on them.

Remember this rusty vintage shovel I found on my recent trip?
For this I painted a little beach scene.
I wish I could find more of these.
It was fun to paint on.

I also found some shelves, signs and wall designs
for a little makeover.

When I found this little tote, it just had to become a HOME and garden design.

Vintage lace tops the handle
and large polka dots accent the sides too.

Remember these vintage cheese servers?
I love finding these but haven't for awhile till recently.
I gave it an accent of a crown with glitter and aqua checks topped off with a tag.

So charming!

This vintage Avon dish was a great little find too.
Love the swirls of mint green and I added my hand painted pink roses with checks and swiss dots.

So many more items pass through my studio each week.
It would be very hard to post and share about them all.

But what I can share.
I love what I was called to do.

With a thankful heart,
I'll see you next time.

Be Blessed,
Celestina Marie

You're so talented Celestina! I love everything you created, especially the shovel and the tool box! Gorgeous! Have a wonderful week!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How cute is that shovel!! I love all your finds/makeovers, Celeste. You certainly find some great things. I was at my Goodwill the other day and found a couple of things (no makeovers necessary), but was a little disappointed in the wood section they have - not much on the shelves there.

Christine said...

How terrific to see how you so easily transformed those pieces! I adore the bunnies!
Have a lovely week!
