The Mystery Thrift Off

Hiya! I'm back.

Long winter, busy life, blah blah blah. I didn't even write about my last two foster dogs. You know something's up when I don't do that...and I will soon, but first I want to tell you about this contest I was recently involved in.

Lindsey over at BetterAfter put together a Thrift-Off. She gathered some things from Goodwill and sent them out to 12 readers and the task was to redesign the items. I was fortunate enough to be in the line up and I had a lot of fun with it.

I was very excited and curious when I received the package...

This is what I found inside -- 2 olive boats (I was told by an IG viewer that they are Crate and Barrel, no less):

Here are some in-process photos:

Today she revealed the first four creations. Check them out here. Lindsey goes into more detail of the hows and whys of her idea to do this. Then check back throughout the week as she reveals four more final pieces each day, then has voting on Thursday.

It's been a few weeks since this started and I was excited from the get-go. The anticipation is killing me. ;)


  1. This is way cool but I have no idea what you are making there?? Can't wait for the reveal.

    1. Hee hee, I can't tell ya until Lindsey reveals it and I'm not sure if it will be Tuesday or Wednesday so keep your eye out. I'll tell you this.... they are fun!

  2. I can't wait to share these! I love all the detail you've given them, they're truly works of art!


    1. Thank you Lindsey, I had a lot of fun making them. Life's been busy so it was nice to have to take some time and get Zen with some art making.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
