What season is it? & Trash to Treasure.

013Can It be Spring?  Well it is on my blog today.  We are having beautiful weather that is almost Spring like. 70 and sunny with a light breeze.  I think I can get used to this coastal living. 

I found this little frame at the Flea Market and I thought it might make a cute seasonal decorative piece.  Bellow you can see what it looked like.  It was a whole .25 cents.  I found quite a few items that I plan on repurposing.

010Thanks for checking out my stuff.  The next person on Hip Hop is http://www.thebuckstampshere.blogspot.com/ .  She always has some pretty awesome stuff.
