Goodwill Goodie Makeover Monday ~ A Day Late :)

So it's Tuesday and I didn't have time to post yesterday.  For this week's makeover, I thought it would be fun to keep you guessing all week long as to what I am doing ~ no before photo!  I might add a sneak peek later, depending on how this one goes.  The paint is drying as I type this!

Christmas is just around the corner, and I can't wait to start decorating!  I usually try to hold off until December 1, but some gingerbread men have already started to find their way into the kitchen.  I think they must have climbed out of the tubs and up the stairs on their own!  I have a soft spot for gingerbread men ~ okay, maybe it's more like an obsession :)  Each year I tell myself that I am NOT going to purchase any more, and then I end up finding a few that I just have to have!  I have already purchased a new spoon rest, cookie jar, and hand towel for the kitchen.  Hello, my name is Michele and I am a gingerbread addict.

I think a post dedicated to all my gingerbread will be coming soon!  Cold weather has set in, and a few more snow flurries have arrived ~ glad they melted as soon as they hit the ground.  I'm hoping for at least 1 more warm day as I have a few makeovers that are half painted and need to be finished.  By the look of my basement, I should have enough started to last the winter.  Makeover Mondays and Finish Fridays should continue!

Any one started on their Christmas decorating yet?  I'm excited to check out everyone's blogs when they start to post photos!  Come back on Friday to see what I have ready!


  1. Michele,

    Too funny! I collect things too...just lots of things! Ask the hubby! Most are to paint on. My basement has stacks of bins full of things.

    I love gingerbread too and it's one of my favorite themes to paint...they are so sweet and bring back such nice old fashioned memories.

    Can't wait to see you makeover.


  2. I have been collecting gingerbreads, too!
    I bought two, over the weekend, plus a
    hand towel. Besides that, I ordered 4
    of them from Brenda at the Rusty Thimble.
    I can't wait to see all your decorating
    and your make over. I have several things
    that I want to paint, waiting....It has
    been rainy or cold, but tomorrow it is
    going to be in the 70's, so I am gonna
    paint, paint, paint!

    Bear Hugs~Karen

  3. I'm hoping that Kelly from Kelly's Korner has some Christmas room link-ups on her blog over the next couple months. Otherwise, I'm going to have to post some pics of my Winter wonderland myself! :) Found some cute Gingerbread things at Hobby Lobby, as always!! Why or WHY do I get Christmas things BEFORE Christmas....everyone knows the good sales are AFTER it's over!!! Uggh.

  4. I have a few of Brenda's gingerbread boys, but I'm being patient. I am holding off until next weekend. At least, I am planning to wait. Well, I think I am waiting. I'm doing my best to wait. That's right. I'm doing my best!

  5. Michele, I'm looking forward to seeing what you're working on. And yes we'd love to see a post about your gingerbread men.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm sorry I haven't left many comments lately - my time has been very limited due to some extra family needs. But things are better now and I hope to be able to post and comment more regularly.
