Salvaging Bliss...

This may be a long one!

 to those of you who have wondered how to comment on posts...

You can usually find a "comments" link at the end of each post, like this:

If you click this link, you will go to the comment posting page. 

On the right hand side of the page is the space for you to enter your comment. Beneath that are the identity options.

The options are these:
  • Blogger username: Your display name will appear, along with a link to your profile and your photo (if you have one).
  • Other: You can enter your name and a link to your website, without having to have a Blogger account.
  • Anonymous: No identifying information is displayed. The comment is credited to "Anonymous" without a link.

I love your share away!

If you receive my post via email...go to the bottom right of the email page and click on my name...

that will bring up the full blog site in all it's color and extra information I have going on currently
(I try to keep up to date)

this weeks post...

Salvaging Bliss...
Lucinda and I happened upon Architectural Salvage in San Diego on Kettner Blvd in Little Italy last week while on our way to Dick Blick Art...
we had to pullover!  

old watch cool

glass ceiling light shades 

We were like kids in a candy store...but good kids...we didn't give into the temptation and left empty handed.

It did spark me to look at salvage projects online and see what I could come up with should I happen upon something interestingly salvaged!

old keys & snipped tin
rubber door mate spray painted & hung
glass lampshades as candle holders
printers drawer to hold mini collections
 wall of suitcases for organization

old rake as jewelry holder

old photos as gift tags
(we all have tones of old photos)

Very cool shutter the shutter wall.

And then...

I found some old windows (5) and two small louver shutters to play with while at a craft sale on Sunday.
Now I'm hunting for inspiration on what to do with them...

...and I'm open to your ideas if you want to that you know how to share & comment here.

Enjoy the Day...


  1. Hi Denise! I love, love, love your blog (and I love your space at Leaping Lotus, too--Linda introduced me, and I'll be going back and introducing another friend as well). BUT I have had trouble figuring out how to comment, and, FYI, it took 3 tries this time for the comment box to come up (course it could just be me).

    Anyhow, I am always so happy when I see one of your posts waiting in my email queue!

    1. did it...the comment came through, thank you for being so tenacious! Thank you too for your kind comments...I just keep blogging away about all the cool stuff I come across, hoping someone out there appreciates it too! I'm glad you enjoy Leaping's so much fun putting it together and searching out vintage finds...and then blogging all about it! Full circle !
      Enjoy your day...Denise
