I See Many Projects in my Future

This past week I found a few moments
To venture into a thrift store or two
I came home with Many items
For very little $$$
And I now have quite a few projects in my future

This $2 bunny will land in my backyard
Somewhere beneath a red bottle brush bush
He will have many neighbors to hang out with
I'm sure he will be very happy there

I got this plant stand and 3 pots for about $5
It is actually larger than it looks
I had purchased a few plants over the weekend
And this is going to be Perfect for what I bought
I will have the girls help me plant tomorrow
It will be a fun project
We may even paint :)

Just couldn't turn my back on this metal basket
I'm not sure where it will end up 
But it will get a small makeover
And find a new home soon

Speaking of makeover
This frame 24x18 will definitely get a fresh coat of paint
And some distressing
It's kind of old but has Lots of potential

I found this cute frame with chicken wire and a few clips
It will also get some new paint
And find a new home
I'm opening an Etsy shop and this may be
One of my first pieces to go on sale

Though I paid about $6 for this 2 foot cross
I absolutely LOVE IT!!!
You may not be able to see it 
But it has a beautiful brown/green patina
I may not touch it at all
I may simply put it in my front porch flower bed

So for less than $20
I have many items and projects to work on

Stay tuned for some after photos in the next week or so
