Midmonth One-of-a-Kind Finds and Finding Pretty Among the Brown

The JBS Mercantile mid-month updates are loading!  I bought!  So psyched - I always wanted one of those green wire frogs!

Check it all out right here:  Mid-month One-of-a-Kind

Among lots of other things, there are a few vintage alarm clocks for sale ...

which reminds me of a project I once did, where I took apart an old alarm clock and made a little motivational display:

I love stuff like that ... using something old in a manner it wasn't quite intended!

My Lovely Life Challenge has been whipping me good these past couple months.  But I'm a firm believer in keeping hope ... and so I will be hopeful ... 2012 is going to be MY YEAR!  I hope it is for all of you reading my blog ... and for others dealing with their own lovely life challenges.

We need to see the pretty among the brown ...

have a great day!
