IN THE BEGINING




WELL I HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE SO HERE GOES. THE HOUSE IS OUR BIG PROJECT. ITS BIG AND A BUNCH OF WORK BUT I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. IT SHOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE THE PROGRESS. THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN JANUARY AND WE HAVE DONE SOME WORK OUTSIDE NOW. ITS A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. TALK ABOUT TAKING SOMETHING ROUGH AND JUNKIE AND MAKING IT PRETTY, WHAT HAVE WE GOT OURSELVES INTO. NEXT IS THE ANTIQUES AND JUNK I COLLECT AND RECREATE. I HAVE MANAGED TO GET SOME THINGS MADE AND TAKEN TO THE SLEEPY POET . MY JEWELERY IS A GOOD ESCAPE. I LOVE TAKING CRANKY THINGS AND MAKING THEM PRETTY. BROKEN CHINA AND BUTTONS WHAT A COMBO. I'M LEARNING TO SOLDER WOW ITS COOL BUT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. WELL LET ME KNOW WHAT YA THINK THANKS, KAREN
