is my treasure! I recently found myself with more time on my hands, and honestly what girl doesn’t like a little retail therapy? But with funding a little short, I decided to hit some of my local thrift and second hand stores. Some items were down right scary, while in others I saw worlds of potential. I found this small wooden box in one shop and it just spoke to me. “I can be pretty again, I just a face lift and some TLC.” For $2.50 I could not walk away. So, I came home armed with this box and a head full of ideas, and went right to my CTMH ‘Sweetheart’ papers. The brown of the box fit perfectly with the tulip and other pinks in the paper. I threw some ribbon on, a few 3-D flowers complete with a butterfly, and finished with some buttons for good measure.
Once I was done, I looked at this box and was truly moved. With just a little time and attention something that was doomed for the trash was once again beautiful. I was staring at the box trying to think of the perfect place for it, and I had an epiphany. Just by slapping some paper and a few embellishments on this silly little box has changed a small part of me, and I a person who loves to share. So I will be offering the box in the Silent Auction for the DCC crop on March 26th. I can only hope that it will bring some magic into someone else's life, as it has done mine.
