a make~do....

i have been away, visiting our daughter & family......& attending my first grandparents day with our Carter..(kindergarten)........what a joy it was watching a little fella learning songs & sharing his artwork & special booklet for Grammy & Grandpa......................needless to say, i am very proud & honored to be his Grammy.........................................................................so since returning home, i just grabbed one of my favorite cabinets to show .........................and it is definitely a make~do.......................bought two seperate places at two seperate times.....................i love the bottom with a touch of red paint, and meal bin............this little shelf was perfect for the top..................on top are three blue stoneware crocks that i got at a yardsale for $5 ea..........they have multiple cracks from a bad ebay deal she said.........but i care not..................everything i have has a crack.........a tear...........a wobble...............................well, you get the picture............................................................ ..................................................................... i am blessed!

Isn't being a grandma the greatest, Oliver is only 5 months, but I am looking forward to those days of doing all kinds of things with him. Love the crocks, my best loved crocks have cracks in them, just gives them character. Vicky

Beautiful make do. Wonderful tin baking collection. The more cracks the better. I am putting together what you would call a make do. Please visit & take a peek. Got any suggestions I would love to know. Blessings!
