Angel made from a spring, half a candle pan, rusty washer and a little piece of wire.
Pink bulletin board on an old kitchen cabinet door, small clip board and cute little baby shoes.
A old fan belt display rack and a few knobs become a place to hang coats, caps, etc.
Desk organizer from a wooden plaque, a jello mold, a rusty cup and a chair spring.
Skates from the local thrift store with a little gold spray paint and some winter greenery.  The skates are screwed together in 2 places so they dont tip over.

Hi everyone!  Marge here from Emma's Nook and Granny in St. Charles MN.  I promised everyone at the Junkologie blog party at Gold Rush that I would start posting, so here I am.  Lani, Amy and Cheryl, it was so nice to see you again.  Sue, Kimberly, Kathy, Candy and Gretchen, it was lovely to meet you.  For those of you I haven't met yet -- in person or online -- I am pleased to make your acquaintance!

Here are a few items I have made to donate to our 6th Annual Trash to Treasure Charity Auction coming up this Friday here in St. Charles.  That's a local event during our city's annual celebration where our Women in Business group raises money for breast cancer research by auctioning T2T items we make and donate.  We have a ton of fun at the auction (it involves a little wine tasting!), so if you are able to come, please do.  Last year we raised over $5,500 in a little over 3 hours.

I know some of you have donated things to our auction, and we are so very grateful for your support and friendship.  Fjerda posted pictures of them on her blog.

I'm sure it will raise good money at the auction. Good job girlfriend! Good luck and make sure to let us know how everything goes! Say hi to those adorable Pfarkel sisters for me!

Be Well,
