I picked up a special teacup and saucer at the thrift store. It makes settling in for a night of studying feel just a little more special!
It's my life.....
My life is funny, adventurous, busy and interesting. It's full of laughter, love, kids and animals. I am a wife, mother to both kids and pets. I have two cats, three birds and three dogs, one of which is a therapy dog. I love feathering my nest and creating inviting spaces both indoors and out. I dabble in gardening and love when it all comes together. I love learning new things and have a passion for thrifting, junking, bargain hunting and finding ways to fix up, upcycle, recycle and repurpose my finds. I am a huge believer of following your dreams and creating a life you love~I am following my life long dream of attending law school! Every day I try create a positive life force by making sure what I put into the world helps make it a better place. A kind word or gesture can make a difference, and I want to make a difference each day. I choose to live life to the fullest and I hope you will join me~ Loretta

My friend and neighbor Michelle and I have a passion for finding junk from thrift stores to dumptsters and transforming them into new and unique pieces for our homes and gardens. Here is our newest project: Glass totems using old vases, plates, glasses and any other unique glass "junk" we could find.......from shopping to building it was great fun!

This blog has been a long time coming, but it's finally here! To blog or not to blog.....it's been the question I've been wrangling with for a while. (ok one of many questions) What will I say? What won't I say? Do I hide real names to protect the innocent? Well, I don't have all the answers yet, but I do know that I'm excited to finally be here, to have a forum to share my thoughts, experiences, stories.
Thanks for joining me!
