It feels like I have been MIA for a bit now and miss hanging out with you guys!  I hope your summer is going delightfully well and that you are finding lots of treasures, painting loads of furniture and, of course, enjoying the lovely outdoors 🙂

I have some super exciting news that I have been wanting to share for a while and it’s finally time!

You know I love hitting the road looking for treasures whenever I can (see here and here) and as much as I would love to keep everything I find… alas… I can not.   I have been looking for an outlet for quite some time to be able to offer things that I find and love and I finally have.

In just a short wee while, you will be able to shop my finds right here!  Yep there will be a new Recreated Designs shop connected right to my website.  Yay!

 → SHOP RECREATEDDESIGNS.COM IS COMING SOON ←

And… want to know something super exciting about the new shop?!  There will always be one item for FREE (you just need to pay the shipping/handling)!  Since I find things for free sometimes – ok – lots a times, I wanted to do something special and have at least one item, always for FREE, in the shop just for YOU!   Kind of a pay-it-forward thing ♥

I can’t wait to share with you the amazing things I have already found for you!  I will share more details about how the FREE item will work soon!  If you would like to be kept up to date about the Recreated Designs Shop, you can sign up for an exclusive newsletter here.  It will be only about the Shop.

Until the shop opens, I thought I would share a few things I have picked up so far this summer.  Some will be in the shop, but mostly these are for my own “collection” 😉old chandelierold cream coloured chandelierA gorgeous cream chandelier.  It is rusty and crusty but it is beautiful.  I’ll remove the old wiring and then go from there.old round ornate gold frameold ornate gold frameAn old, ornate gold frame.  It is pretty small and fragile but it will be beautiful hanging on a wall.vintage glass light shadesSome more vintage glass light shades.  These are perfect turned upside down and I am pretty sure I will be making some cake stands with them; I think…

And a few Farmhouse style vintage kitchen items.old solid wood butcher block cutting boardvintage wire whiskvintage Osterizer measuring/mixing cupsMy favourite find so far this summer though is this old screen window.  I found one a couple of years ago (you can read about it here) and am so excited to find another.  This one is a little bit smaller but has just as much character ♥old screen window


brand new Nine West gold shoesAnd… these.  These are definitely my weirdest find this summer; some brand new gold leather sneakers… at the Dump Store!  Wait until you see what I do with these puppies 😉  (here’s a little hint)


I have 2 lovely thoughts, I would love to hear yours.
