This becomes that


                                                  A few years ago my neighbor moved and left the curb filled with "trash".  My hubby saw them carrying it out and called me out to see the stuff. He always lets me know when there's good stuff to see! He takes care of me.  A perfectly good ladder, this, and much more that stayed there. 

                                                  You know everything has to be inspected by Daffie.  This old gate has been sitting in our shed for years. I finally decided it was time to do something with it. It was easy enough to take apart. Then I just put some of it back together.

                                                      I made my letters out of card board. I covered the letters with a plastic table cloth I got for $1. The gold "nails" are upholstery tacks that  hold the letters on. This now sits by the front porch as a greeter. I don't have a picture of it out there because it has been really cold out lately. When Christmas decorations come down I can just take the red letters off and put something else on. It was easy enough to make and practically free. I like how it turned out. What do you think?
