Repurposing Motivations

If you really want to get motivated you need to check out the Junkmarket Under Glass Extravaganza that we have been talking about. It is coming up on September 7 - 10. Taking old items and using them in a new way is like finding them all over again. You will get your chance, to not only get motivated, but find those one of a kind items we all love. This event is hosted by renowned author Sue Whitney and Otten Bros Garden and Landscape Center in Long Lake Mn. 

 Repurposing can be taking an old bee hive and making a light fixture.

Repurposing can be relocating an inside cabinet to a porch for use as a plant holder.

Repurposing can be an old iron porch swing used as a love seat in a bedroom.

Oh before I forget it is a must that you go to U Tube and search for Sue Whitney at Marburger Farms Weddings Part 1 and Part 2. You just might see someone you know.

Taking time to give thanks

Most of us know who truly deserves our thanks. There is so many different things going on in our lives from day to day we seem to forget to take the time to voice that thanks.  I hope you will stop just a minute and give thanks for just a few of the things we take so for granted.  

Thanks you for my family
Thank you for my health

Thank you for my freedom

Thank you for giving your life for me

Leaving Texas and Hackberry Hill Farm.

 Yes, this is home in Texas and  I love it but I am more than ready for a break from this hot weather!! The weather man doesn't give us any hope of relief from it  so we have decided to take a road trip to some cooler temps and do a show in the north!!! No matter if you live in Texas or Minnesota everyone love the outdoors and beautiful flowers.  Don't you agree?

This is just a sneak preview of where we will be going.  This is a booth in the "Junkmarket Under Glass
antique show which will be held in a wonderful greenhouse at Otten Bros. Garden Center and Landscaping in Long Lake, Minnesota.  We will be doing the show with Sue Whitney and a wonderful bunch of awesome vendors on Sept 7-10.  We know it is a long way from Texas to Minnesota but pull out the motor home, tent, or turn loose of some of that extra cash and take the road trip with us.  We do have clients in the area around this show and look forward to visiting with some of them in their part of this beautiful U.S. of America. See you soon and you might need to bring a lightweight jacket!!!

You can get more info from the Junkmarket Style website or on Facebook.
