I have been a trash to treasure person for a long time. I use to live in Illinois in the early and late 80's in a log home where I stayed home with my older children and the only way I could decorate my home was to buy used. Of course I met others like me and we all did the garage sales, auctions and estate sales together....I now live in Southern California and it is much harder to get reasonable priced things. I resigned my job over a year ago due to my health and having another young family. I have been remodeling during this time and have used many new and used things for our house that we bought a little over 3 yrs ago. I did post a photo on my homepage of an old oily workbench that a friend gave my husband that I fixed up for our outdoor patio if anyone would like to view it. I tiled it by buying outdoor tiles that I bought at a tile warehouse for only .50 per tile. I broke them up because there was maybe only one box per color for that price and I also needed it for an outdoor kitchen L shape bar that we built for our BBQ.

I also love gardening and will be getting into that as soon as I save up some money to start buying plants, bushes and maybe one or two trees. Right now I am trying to figure out on how I can make somethings to sell so I can buy the things that I need. I took woodworking long ago when I use to live in our Log Home and have some scrapes of wood; I also have lots of fabric that I can make some simple quilts to sell at our Annual Craft sale at our church. Well, I think that is allot of stuff to read about me right now....I have more things going on but I think that is enough for now....

Look forward to getting to know all...
