O.k. Here's A Thrift Store Creation....

I promised I would share with you one of my creations from my thrift store finds. I made this for an auction prize for the Macomb Charitable Foundation's Harvest of Hearts Fundraiser.
It's a veggie and Dip bowl server... It's amazing what you can make out of a plate, cup & saucer and two sundae bowls.
I found these tiny spoons at a kitchen store and just embellished the spoon with a pretty pearl button. The spoon is perfect to use to serve the veggie dip.
I added this sweet little gift tag with a bow and button. Perfect for gift giving.
It's so much fun using found treasures to create something new. I can't wait to see who bids on this item at the auction.... Here are three links to stop by to see other thrifty ideas you may be able to re-create: Thrifty Thursday , Transformation Thursday and
Do it Yourself Day. That should keep you busy for a bit!
I also wanted to share with you two wonderful giveaways. Stop by Carol Anne's Boutique to see what she has posted and then pop over to Miss Molly Cottage and sign up for her giveaway. Wishing you a day filled with happiness and wonderful moments.
