bits & pieces

a few items that will be for sale at the 'big june sale' this weekend. i stayed up way too late last night (did my clock really say 3:30am?!?!) and created these fun things. above is what everyone needs....an organizer. it started out as a boring brown shadow box, i heard it scream for a makeover at a recent garage sale. so i painted it white, lined the back with paper, added two extra wood slates to hold mail, magazines, school papers...you know, all that stuff that is all over your kitchen counter most days. i also added 3 hooks to hang keys and a clip board for a note pad or photo. the bingo card is just there for decoration for when you don't have something for the clip board. if i needed an organizer i would be keeping this for myself because i think it turned out really cute.

this little art piece would make an adorable house warming gift. the house/heart domino is a game piece that i picked up on my mothers day road trip. wish i would have picked up more, but at the time i had no idea what i was going to do with it. so this is one of a kind. the black mat is behind the glass and the other pieces are glued to the glass on the outside. who says all of the art has to be behind the glass?
what bits and pieces do you have laying around? think outside the box and create something from nothing for your home. OR be sure to stop by the 'big june sale' this friday and saturday!
