Hi Friends and Youtube Family,
This is my weekly thrift haul, what I found while out secondhand shopping in a week. But also I include the makeovers. In these makeovers I will be trying out some viewer suggested technique. Honestly some did not go as planned. But in the end it’s about learning and the end results.

  1. Love seeing you do different techniques . Love seeing how you make them work anyway. have a blessed day💞. thank you for showing us how not to give up try try again. 💞

  2. Even with the candlestick bulbs in the Christmas tree, vintage ceramic trees are super-popular right now! I’ve seen them sell at auctions for $40-100 or more depending on the size of the tree.

  3. If you learn from it, it isn’t a fail! It’s just a different outcome. 😉❤

  4. The frames sure turned out pretty. I love the way you distressed these !
    I know that you felt that the salt on the star was a fail, but I loved it and would have left it that way and called it a happy accident. Sure shows that we are all different in our likes and dislikes.

  5. Hi I just wondering what are the fonts you used for the bed and breakfast sign,I really love them.

  6. I would buy that huge wood and white flower Lazy Susan from you, Yvonne!! Like for real. Is that possible?

    I wanted to tell you about the IOD transfer. Once you get it transferred onto your surface, you’re supposed to burnish it with the paper cover deal you just used. So just use the clear sheet that the transfer just came off of and rub it real good over the transfer. Does that make sense? 🤷🏻‍♀️ LOL it’s hard to put into words what I’m trying to say. 🤪
    Side note: I’m absolutely LOVING their new releases!!! 🥰😍

    Anyways, thank you for sharing your projects with us!! I’m so thankful you didn’t throw your hands up and toss the ones that didn’t work out, aside. You’re right, not everything works out. But everything IS a learning experience! And I’m so thankful that you’ve shared your learning experiences with us! 👍🏻 You absolutely rock, my friend!! 🤘🏻🤍🫶🏻

  7. I believe after you put the salt on that you need to put another layer of paint on your piece and then you send it off after it’s dry

  8. Love your content and of course you all. That bird lamp….can it be shipped to Canada??

  9. Hi Yvonne! Teach me— is there a reason that you used the Dixie Bell instead of Waverly on the fabric of the dress form? Thanks! ~Kelly
    p.s. in case no one has mentioned it this week: you are so awesome! thank you for sharing with us! 😉

  10. Do you still have the bird lamp, I love it, please email me if you do and how much, I like the color it is already
