I have had some interesting things happen to me in the last few months, first, I won a contest on Canadian Pickers. I had entered a pick of my hoosier in a "Show us your best pick contest" and my name was picked.
Some of my friends saw it online before I did and they sent me message congratulating me. It took me a while to figure out what they were talking about.
It was exciting to see my name and my blog mentioned on the Canadian Pickers facebook page. I never win anything so I was pretty excited. I didn't even know what the prize was when I entered.
I won a prize pack which came in the mail Christmas Eve, it consisted of a Canadian Pickers Tshirt and coffee mug and autographed postcard of Sheldon and Scott. I asked if Sheldon and Scott could deliver it, but I guess they were busy lol
I know some of you might think its not a big deal, but I never win anything so I was excited to win.
The second exciting thing is that alot of my furniture that I had for sale at Iron Orchid Designs has been selling. The owners have told me that people come in asking for my stuff , that is pretty exciting.
Here are a few items that I have put for sale in the store
Then today I had my blog and one of my upcycling projects featured on the blog Before and After.
This blog is one of my favorite blogs and I am honoured to have one of my projects featured on there.
This is what was written
Four things I like about this little makeover from Tobey at Tobey’s Trash or Treasure.#1. the white chalk paint
#2. the gray numbers on the drawers
#3. the original handles
#4. And how she replaced that ridiculously awkward-looking foam seat cushion with something that actually looks comfortable and covered it in a kicky print to match the numbering on the desk, and tied the whole package of cuteness together. I give it four thumbs up! I don't really have four thumbs, but pretend I do. Actually, don't, that's weird.
I tried to add the link to take you right to the post about my project, but can't figure out how to do it.
So I am afraid with my computer skills this will have to do
I can't be good at everything you know lol
That one even made me laugh
Some people might not think that these are big accomplishments
But to me they are very exciting
I love upcycling furniture and I love writing this blog
and when good things like this happen
it reinforces in my mind that this is what I was meant to do
And I will keep doing this along my body lets me
Thank you to Canadian Pickers
and Thank you to Better After , one of my favorite blogs
and thank you too all that follow me and encourage me and rejoice in my accomplishements

Who is loving all of this snow
