It was FREE!

I picked up this great croquet set this weekend...

And the best part was.... it was FREE!

I've picked up a LOT of free things over the past few years. You can do some amazing things with free things.


I've grabbed a lot of these.....
and made things like this......
and this.....

I found this....
and turned it into this...

I've gathered up many, many,many of these ....
and made many things (but this is probably the biggest)....
I was given bunches of these (by the high school janitor, nonetheless)......
and came up with this.....

Believe it or not, I been given 3 of these (so far)...
and I've come away with this....
and these.....
and even this....


No one wanted this....
but now it looks like this....

Picked up this (along with 2 others).....
and it became this....

Came across this....
which gave me the opportunity to make more of these....


BUT...... the BEST thing I ever got for FREE was......
In Jesus Christ, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace. Ephesains 1:7
and because of that
to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, you may know that you have eternal life. I John 5:13

Hi Midge- great post! I just found your blog through Alice and have really enjoyed it! I have seen your fun creations on Junkmarket, too (I am ninnarae on there). Looking forward to reading more!

I love all the things you've made but my favorites by far are the star and the graduation hat frame -

The star because I like it and the hat because it is brilliant.

But the ending is best of all...you are right - there is free and there is FREE!
