I am enjoying participating in the weekely blog parties. My favorites are the before and afters, transformations, and DIY projects and crafts. It's so amazing to see what some very talented folks can do with road side trash and how inspiring they can be for others to give it a whirl.
A few years ago we moved from a place that was fully furnished for us to an empty apartment. A new area, new home, new jobs, meant no $ to furnish or decorate lavishly so I took a garage sale find that was pretty cheap looking and quite frankly had no personality and worked her over until she earned a spot of her very own in my guest room.
