Where am I?

Where am I???

Definitely haven't been blogging . . . 
  or adding more items to my etsy shops . . .

but I have been busy . . . .
reorganizing and managing a non-profit thrift store

and adding a coffee shop.

A new concept . . .

free coffee while you shop . . .  at a thrift store.

I love being involved with new
projects that think outside of the box.

Here are a few pics.

Today is our unofficial reopening day.

Still working on a few details . . .
was excited to find these online

Gotta think about the big and small stuff.
I'm working with residents at a local family shelter . . . 

helping them learn new job skills at the thrift store . . . 

and learning new skills myself.

It's all good.

Hope you are doing well.
Sorry I won't have much time for blog hopping 
in the near future.

I look forward to catching up on your blogs.

Thanks for visiting.
I appreciate your visits and comments!

Repurposed Rusty Fencing

Found this bundle of rusty garden fencing . . .
curbside while visiting New York . . . 

Carried it on the subway {lol} and 
packed it in a suitcase to get it home.

Inspired by its green color, 
I decided to make a tree
which can be used inside or out . . .

. . . I took it to Junk Fest to display ornaments.

Hope you're having a great start to the New Year!

I will be sharing a few back posts 
from Christmas crafting.

I've currently taken on the role 
of redesigning a thrift store and adding a coffee shop, 
so I will be somewhat MIA from blogging 
and won't have much time to blog visit
over the next few months, 
but I hope you'll keep in touch.
I will catch up when I have some free time.

I may do a few posts on the 
thrift store project as it progresses.
It's a great opportunity, and all proceeds 
benefit a local family shelter.
