Cashing In

For Mother's Day,
my son, John, promised to help me make "stuff."

So, while he was home from college for the summer,
I cashed in on quite a few projects!

I needed a display piece for my space at
Earth Mama's General Store for some bags that were coming in.

Using fence pickets, he made me this...

Here it is at the store...

And, here it is with the bags...
 It's perfect!

Pin It

Here are a few of the other projects John has helped me with...

Wine Cabinet

Suitcase Table

Kerosene Heater Table

He may think I'm done cashing in on my gift,
 but I'm not finished with him just yet!
