Trash to Treasure Auction is Friday!

Wow, time flies and it's Gladiolus Days once again!! That means the 5th Annual Trash to Treasure Charity Auction and Wine Tasting Event is just 3 days away! I have a few projects ready to go and am still working on a couple of others.

It is always challenging to take a picture of a mirror! This vanity used to be a blond.

Here is the bench sitting on my kitchen island. It was an easy place to recover the bench.

This memo center is made from a three-paned window. One section has clips for hanging memos, pictures, etc.; the center is a cork bulletin board covered with the same toile as the bench and the third section is a pink chalk board!! There are also two porcelain door knobs for hanging things.

The sheet music decoupaged onto this tray is "A Perfect Day" dated 1909. Let's hope Friday is a perfect day for an outdoor social hour and auction to raise money for breast cancer research!

These are bottles from last year's wine tasting. We drilled a hole and added a string of teeny lights. I painted a few of them and just decorated the rest.

This burgundy bottle is the one on the tray in the picture of the vanity.

I love this one with the pocket watch. It says, "It's Five O'clock Somewhere." This will make a good souvenir of the event for some lucky bidder.

Grab your friends, your checkbook and your friends' checkbooks and join the St. Charles Women in Business for their 5th annual event on the south lawn of the Victorian Lace Inn on Whitewater Avenue in St. Charles. Wine tasting and appetizers start at 4:30 with live music by the Bandanas. The auction starts at 6:00. Each year has been bigger and better than the last. Be prepared to bid aggressively to get what you want and remember it is all for a good cause.
