Everything old is new again

We love the idea of taking lost pieces and fragments and junk, and bringing out new beauty - letting it shine again, and be loved in a new way . . . this black counter could be a kitchen island, a laundry room folding table, a baby changing piece, or entertainment console . . . the possibilities are endless!
Oh the fretwork! Isn't this a wonderful way to admire a squeaky screen door, and this wreath handmade out of old book pages . . .
Vintage tea cart repurposed as a piece maybe in the bathroom . . . load up the bottom shelf with a stack of fluffy white towels . . . clean and crisp -
Love this creativity! Hat molds hung as display pieces . . .

What a bright idea - found galvanized piece turned into a lamp . . .

Don't throw away your tools just because they break . . . don't you want a shelf made from a rake?

Old wooden trim made with cute clips to hang anything!

Food cover made from newspapers - love this! And it's so strong too!

Old fencing and insulators turned into a chandelier - love this for your outdoor spring entertaining!

A chair with no seat? No problem. As a planter it's neat.

Unbelievable necklaces made from found fragments and amazing pieces you have to see and love . . .
Dry sinks we love now to fill with new plants, or piled with wonderful finds

A new coat of paint and color will change any piece - brighten it up . . .
We can't wait to show you all the things we've been changing, enhancing the old and making displays new again!

Drawing us in . . .

We are mesmerized by pieces like this 3 tiered, ever-so-large birdcage, that would transform any space where it calls home.

We love the thought of giving gifts like these natural bird journals - that inspire the person receiving them to reflect, create and write their heart's thoughts.
And we are fascinated by simply gazing at a found treasure touched by the warm sunshine, drawing us in its fleeting moment of this beautiful light it has now cast on our souls.

New thoughts, new things

Check out this so cute cupboard - chippy white paint outside, old rich red paint inside . . .

It's music to our ears - repurposing, renewing, and rediscovering!

Awesome register cover, love this style -

So many new things going on here at the shops in these warm Spring days! We're lovin' it and we can't wait to see you on your next visit to Sisters'!

Take time to REFLECT

Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.
