Lucky Me...a special gift...

Not to "rub it in"...or anything ;)

I mentioned in a previous post that I celebrated a "BIG" birthday in December...

But I never showed you the special gift I received from my friend Joan (SIGNS OF THE TIMES)

I just FINALLY got it hung up...and I couldn't wait to show you!!

Like usual...I have no idea what this piece originally did ;)

...but with the addition of this lock box screwed to the wall for a little shelf...

...and some papers and "greens"...'s the perfect addition to my home...

...right by my front door.  
The PERFECT thing for my family and friends to see as they come and go!!

Thank you Joan!!  I LOVE it!!

(See more of Joan's creations on her Facebook page...

I'm still working like CRAZY to get ready for the JunkMarket show next weekend...
More info HERE!!

I'll try to stop in to say "Hi" here and there...but if not, I'll be back with pictures after the show!!
