To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I had gathered some household items to donate to Goodwill
and had everything all neatly boxed and ready to deliver...
which we procrastinated about for a few weeks....
I kept looking at two old framed pictures I had to donate
and decided...I really loved the picture frames!
Maybe I could think of a way to repurpose them!!
They were from Kirkland's and were hung in our laundry
room in the Maine house...the sun had faded the mats.
An idea came to mind to transform them into a little coffee tray
for the fall season using my pretty new scrapbook papers!
It's rather fun to see how you can design your look......
Well...I loved the result.
It's pretty, whimsical and just is a happy little serving tray!
Wouldn't you love using this in your kitchen at your coffee or tea station?
I think I want to make a second one.....
I still want to use these gorgeous fall papers...hmmmmm
