It’s my third Trash to Treasure’s Tuesday!
Today I am not showing anything that I have
done or anything that I have purchased as a
treasure from Goodwill, a thrift store or yard
sale. I am showing something that my brother
Talent seems to run in my family. I paint, do
crafts, jewelry, photography…etc. My oldest
brother is talented with his hands and his
ideas. He is right now finishing up the remodeling
of one of his homes. Him and my nephew Chase
have gone in and gutted this ranch type home and
redid it all. They have done everything from taking
down walls, to putting in all new bathrooms and
building cabinets. He is great with photography and
one fantastic businessman.
My younger brother, Mark, is
talented with his hands also. He is great with wood
and scrap metal and metal odds and ends. He built
my Mom’s sewing center, end tables and coffee table
many years ago out of solid oak. He replaced her
kitchen cabinets from pine to oak also. He does
awesome work. Right now, he also has part of his
house gutted and his redoing parts of it. There is not
anything that he does half way, and there is not anything
he can't do...and do well.
Mark believes in recycling all that you can to make
this world a better place to live in and for our children
and grandchildren. In part of his recycling he will take
left over metal or spare parts and make things with
About 9 years ago when I first learned that I could
paint, for my birthday he made me the neatest
birthday gift, all from scrape stuff he had laying
around….metal, springs and screws. So awesome!
It is a metal figure sitting at an easel painting. He
took it a step further and cut a picture from a
magazine that fit right onto the easel to look like
that was what was being painted. Such a great idea.
This is displayed proudly in my home for all to see.
He has also made other items for other members
