Small projects, Big results

I love finding little things at Goodwill and transferring them into something I love for my home.

I am always drawn to clocks. So many cute clocks at Goodwill--or at least clocks I see potential in.

I painted these 2 clocks with original white and now I love them!

Costing me only a few dollars and a little bit of paint these clocks quickly turned Shabby Chic cute!

Having several clocks on the mantle reminds me time is precious! Something that was made so clear when we lost my sister in law about 6 months ago.

Jaxon always tell me, "My Mama is an angel" so I put a picture of her by my angel wings. I think Jax will like it.

Speaking of Jaxon..he is doing well and continues to bring us so much joy. We all just adore him and look forward to Mondays when he stays with us.

He is obsessed with Ninja turtles and he likes me to call him by the name of whatever mask he is wearing. This day he was Donatello. Who would have known at my age I would now know so much about Ninja Turtles? lol  Chantel and Jax (I mean Donatello) made cupcakes the other day.

I love seeing Jaxon's little fingers in the photo :)

I am so busy--wedding plans and painting (and Jaxon) keeps me really busy! The Daphne is blooming and the wonderful aroma is making me look forward to Spring.

The smell is just intoxicating!

I hope this finds everyone feeling loved and about to have a Happy Valentines day!

Remember...time is precious...

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sandy,

I love how it all turned out. You are blessed to find so many good things at your thrift stores. I haven't been able to find much lately. They are really picked over these days.

What a beautiful tribute to your late sister-in-law. I love angels so I am always smiling when I see them. I also love clocks and always regret that years ago my dad had an old antique clock that no longer worked and my friends boyfriend and his dad were clockmakers/repair clock people and my dad made me get that clock back from their shop! Made me sad because like everything else my dad wanted me to have disappeared after he and my mother passed away. Sigh! I have a couple prettt lead crystal Princess House clocks but I prefer the kind you can paint! Your shabby chic project turned out beautifully. I am happy I found you here,it has been a long while since I came by. enjoy a beautiful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day to you!

The clocks look amazing now with their new shabby chic refresh! Great vignette with the frames, too. The whole mantle is a fitting tribute.

You did an amazing job on those clocks! They look wonderful on your mantel with the rest of your treasures. Your nephew is a cutie.
Happy Saturday.
