Daily we are blessed with the sounds coming from budding musicians.
There’s always paint open somewhere.
The sewing machine is standing by awaiting the final touches to the new curtains.
And Momma’s more than likely in the kitchen with her own creations.
Frugal, thrifty finds are the brain-child behind many of our projects. By making all things new, we demonstrate our value in the art of restoration.
