::Sentimental Treasures::

Is there a place growing up that you just loved? 

The place for Crafty Hubby is a cabin in the "Pines" of AZ!  You can just see him light up when he tells the kids and I all the stories about his family cabin.  From playing with his ALL his Aunt's to getting into trouble or the best part just spending time with his adored Grandpa.

Every so often we would go up north just for him to take a look.  Over the years, it has aged and WE both just loved all the grungy potential.  Time past and we had not gone up for awhile...When finally got up there -- this is what we saw :0(

The town bulldozed it down!!!  I guess it was getting too grungy, then in the corner of the property was a pile of what was left of The Brown Cabin.  I began to do what I do best.  DIG! We found the door handle, spiders, the street post and a bunch of glorious wood and a snake! You can see one of the wood pieces propped up on Bessie (the truck).

I used a basic craft stencil to paint an "The Old Brown Cabin" sign.

 Then we cut the back of the door handle off, so it would hang better. Ta Da!!

Now Crafty Hubby has a little piece of his favorite place that he can look at daily! The street post likes to be in outside in the garden!

Peoples junk are truly my treasures!
