Last week I found this well used old orange dresser at Goodwill.
I liked the orange, but it was pretty scratched up. I decided to sand it and paint it blue.
What a fun makeover. The dresser was $5.99. I bought a couple of cans of spray paint and it looks pretty close to new! It stores books that our large bookcase
can't hold because it is full. And I was excited to use the dresser to showcase an apple picture that I took this fall.
A favorite thing of mine is enlarging photos and putting them on foam core board.



My sisters and I love thrifting together.
I have a few friends who enjoy looking for a second hand bargain too!
Last time Phil was in town he and Will joined me for some thrift store fun!
It is pretty cool when my younger bro likes thrifting too. And Willem is always
excited to hunt for a treasure.

I have been taking lots of pictures lately!
I have had some wonderful fall photo shoots. The weather
has been fantastic and the leaves and fall colors are so nice.
I have lots of my favorite shots on my photography blog.
Being able to photograph and visit with families is a treat. Some of them I know, some of them
I have never met. This hobby/business has been a great learning experience and a lot of fun.

Rudy is such a good old dog. She is thirteen. We have been spending lots of time outside lately and have also been having some fun in our cabin, Rudy is always right there with us. It has been good to see the relationship she and Hazel have formed too.

I love your goodwill!! Sadly, when I come visit, the things I find usually won't fit in my suitcase. Why can't I check a coffee table? I love the way your dresser turned out. I want to go thriftin' with Phil!

Fun! I never think to go into Goodwill and bargain stores. I bet you do get some great finds. Did you happen to get my message on FB? Just curious what your schedule looks like. Next Sat. we are free too, but then after that I'm gone for the next 2 weekends. Just let me know!
