Part Two... Repurposing Thrifty Finds....

Hello Everyone!
It's been awhile.
I've been so busy,
trying to keep up with 
my Painting.
Here are some of my latest
Thrifty finds, re-purposed.

These are two old shovels...
that I got from my Sister.
The handles are broken off.
So I painted a Snowman
 on the shovel part
 and added some greens.

This is a Piece of Barn Board,
also from my Sister.
I painted a Snowman on it,
Cut a Burlap Bag  apart
and made a Pocket
then stapled it to the bottom
and added some greens.

These two screens are Huge.
5 ft. tall
These were also from my Sister.
I painted Snowmen on these also.

My 2 oldest sons
came to me with a pile of
jeans that no longer fit,
where full of holes
and worse for wear.
I couldn't throw them out.
After looking them over,
I decided to cut the back
pockets out of them.
I painted a snowman on them,
added some greens to the
inside and a piece of wire for 

And this pair of Bibs
I had in my stash.
I was gonna use them
for a Scarecrow, but never did.
So after studying them...
I decided to paint them.

I Painted a Snowman
on one leg...
Let it Snow
on the other leg...

And another Snowman 
to the pocket on top.
Some greens and a candy cane
added to the pockets
and hung from an old
wooden Hanger.

This is an old pan with
a handle. 
Also a Thrift Store find.
I painted a Snowman face
on the bottom,
added a some fabric,
tag and a rusty bell.

So this is what I've been up to.
When I'm not at work.
I still need to do a Post
on a few items that I have won
and get my overdue Giveaway
Hopefully next week, sometime.
Have a wonderful
Weekend Everyone!!
