Do You Have Your Tickets?

Pin It




G
et your tickets now!...if you want to reserve a seat here! Actually, tickets are all sold out!! I took this theater seat/bench to sell at Oronoco Gold Rush Days. When my brother saw it at the show, he wanted it for his very own. He packed it up and took it home with him that day. Happy early birthday/Christmas, Randy!!

Is anyone else hooked on numbers? How about makeover projects? Now, it didn't start out so pretty. Don't believe me? This is what it looked like when I found it...

Here it is primed...


then painted...


and numbered...



A junk makeover is a beautiful thing, isn't it? And I am completely inspired by the way these photos capture the sunlight. Can you feel the sun and smell the freshly cut grass? Aaaaah, so relaxing. The perfect end to a productive day!

  4. Hi Amy.
    Thank you so much for joining me today. There are a lot of inspiring things about what you just showed us. Being close with your family is so special, and indeed inspirational. Your ability to see the beauty in things that aren't immediately beautiful, and the way that you captured the whole scene is inspirational. I love the sunspot in that photo.

    Have a wonderful weekend, girl.

  6. oh my goodness goodness ... how brilliant you are! i love the fact that you rescued these beauties and transformed them into such great purposeful pieces! cool!
    but my heart did go pit pat when i saw them as our local theatre recently fell to the demolition ball and i don't think a single thing was salvaged ... i try so hard not to think about all the wonderful heritage pieces that could have been saved ... ok ... especially the glass paneled swinging doors from the outer entrance into the main lobby ... sigh ...
    so, good for you! yay! this is exciting and i am so happy for you!
    and btw, lovely new header ...
    cheers!

    My blog has been growing like gang busters and while that is great I haven't had much time to visit my blog friends. I decided I needed to make some time for some visits, cuz I just missed everyone too much. Come back over for a visit as well.
