Is there anything I own that's NOT a trash to treasure transformation?! There's always some project waiting in the garage for me to work on but I rarely take photos of the "before" so I'll have to just show you the "afters". I love this little cart on wheels! I use it everyday. Of course I had to add a flower or two =)

My best find, of course, is the pink stove!

This old door is waiting to become a counter top. It and the sofa were waterlogged on the curb last Fall.

All dried out and I only had to put some pillows on it!
The old bed we got on one of buying trips up north (toward Door County).

And it's matching dresser - I use it as a buffet. (ugh - still hate that wallpaper - I gotta paint!)

The tall cabinet on the left is another Goodwill find (shh.. it's bursting at the seams with fabric)

This old oven top makes a great shelf!

Last Summer hubby made an outdoor dressing room for the kids. It has a working portable potty so when the kids are swimming, they can use this instead of tracking their sloppy wet bods through the house. I guess it's not really a trash to treasure but it's definitely a gem to me!

The greatest trash to treasure example at my house is myself! I could say that I used to be lonely and abused and God gave me a husband who's my best friend. I could say I used to cheat on my ex and God saved me from myself. I could tell you all the things I used to be but they were just outward signs of the struggle that was inside. When I finally gave in, He rescued me - transformed me! Here's a word you can take to heart and depend on: Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. I'm proof—Public Sinner Number One—of someone who could never have made it apart from sheer mercy. And now he shows me off—evidence of his endless patience—to those who are right on the edge of trusting him forever. (written by the Apostle Paul)

Be sure to stop by and visit all the Sunday Show and Tell participants. Hugs to Analise and Cherri for hosting - thank you, thank you!

Sunday Note: Because the Bible says that honoring the Sabbath is sign of the covenant between God and us - forever, I take Sundays as a day of rest. To honor Him, my Sunday posts are prepared the day before and any questions or orders that come through on Sundays will be responded to on Monday. Thank you so much for visiting.
