I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Just last week I was surprised by a wonderful gift.
My daughter, Diana, came home after work with these wonderful old crates.
Her friend and co-worker, Carol, found out how much I like crafts and DIY projects and gave my daughter these old wood apple crates she has owned for over 15 years for me to use in our home.
Carol told me these apple crates traveled from Wesler's Apple Orchard in New Paris, OH, they were used by her cousin in her Art store and, Carol herself, used them in her own shop and later in her craft room.
Wasn't it sweet of her to think of me?
The best part is Carol and I have never met in person but I plan to fix that soon. :)
You want to talk about excitement!
I wouldn't have been this happy if she would of brought home a diamond necklace! LOL
You know my mind was racing thinking of all the ways I could use these fabulous crates and although I had many ideas in mind, I also turned to Pinterest for some inspiration.
I was amazed at how many boards there were with ideas on how people used old crates as part of their home decor.
What do you guys think?
It is going to take me a few days to decide how I am going to use them. :)
And I am opened to all kinds of suggestions!
Carol, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this gift.
I will cherish them and put them to good use for many years to come!
Thank you all for stopping by!
See you soon!
