I've been going through my photos since starting this blog, and realized that I have quite a few redesigns to show you, past and present.

Check back soon. I'll be sharing more redesigns and recent finds. Hubby and I will be hunting and gathering at some great estate sales these next few days.

P.S. Don't forget, you can click on photos to enlarge.
