Special Bulletin

You've seen snippets of  my rolling pin obsession.
If you haven't you can find it here

It is not my only obsession.

Another is old wooden ironing boards.
I use them for everything
In the garden for a garden bench
Temporary Serving Stations at picnics and family gatherings
Work benches for construction projects.

This is one of many
Put to use to showcase some items that make me smile
My special bulletin

The invitation my girls hand stitched for our 25th
The portrait of Mr. Norm's dad
An invite to Miss Sarah's wedding.
Need to unpack Miss Kristin's   

Something  that makes me smile
A photo sizing trick
Miss Donna of Funky Junk shared it on a recent post
Love learning something new.

Someting else that makes me smile

..Love having a small corner that makes my heart smile


Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special


  1. Oh love this...What a great idea to take the ironing boards outside...Mine in my sewing room is used more often for additional work space (junk catcher) than for an ironing.

    Now I need to hunt out a cool looking antique one to make into a potting table...Oh hubby is going to love this idea *giggles* not...
