Happy Easter...and a giveaway winner...


Just dropping in to say have a blessed Easter dear friends!

Chipping with Charm: Happy Easter...Strike Plate Cross...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/

Romans 5:8b is one of the first verses my son learned in Sunday School.  "Christ died for us."  So simple...but it has been on my heart this Easter week.  Before I was even "trying" to be good Christ died for me...and for you.  
You are loved.

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. (John 3:17)

Have a blessed Easter celebrating this AMAZING gift!
 
Also, 
I promised to announce the winner of my Junkers United Giveaway.
Drum roll, please...

Congratulations!  
I'll be in touch to get your shipping info soon :)

My "Collected Junk" Office Space...



Chipping with Charm: "Collected Junk" Office Space...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
Welcome to my new little "junk" office space...
Chipping with Charm: "Inspiration Corner"...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
You might remember this corner of my Great Room that I called INSPIRATION CORNER".
Well, I decided a better space to keep my "Chipping with Charm" business stuff handy and organized.

So I grabbed a few old drawers and some collections to turn this wasted space into a more functional open office.

 I love this Lost and Found sign...all of my finds get a "new life".

 Like this canning rack turned memo holder.

 And all of those fun little junk "bits" moved into the window cupboard...

 Still "easy access"...with less dusting.
Chipping with Charm: "Collected Junk" Office Space...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/  I'm thinking this new little layered, collected, junk loving office space will help keep me organized with out stifling my creative juices.

Aqua Ladder for Books...dreaming of summer adventures...



Chipping with Charm:  Aqua Ladder Book Shelf...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/

Hello friends, thanks for your patience with me and my little "Blog-cation".  I had a nice "low pressure" week.  I even started to "day-dream" about summer shows and Flea Markets.  How about you?

I think it started with this little toy Winnebago I found at an antique store the other day...

Happy Spring...in need of a little JOY?


Chipping with Charm:  Jump for Joy Mantel...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
Hello friends, I just stopped in to say "Happy Spring".
And I don't know about you, but I am "Jumping for Joy"!  Not that it actually FEELS like Spring here in Minnesota...but I have HOPE that it is coming :)

I seem to be taking a little "Blog-cation" lately...not by choice.  For some reason I am feeling a little uninspired these days.  My sweet husband reminded me that I go through this every year about this time.  I decided to take the pressure off and rest a bit.  I'll be back when I have something to share.  
Thanks for understanding!!
 
Until then,

Accidental Wine Bar...planning ahead...


Chipping with Charm:  Accidental Wine Bar...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
I'm not exactly sure what possessed me to design a "Wine Bar" on a Thursday afternoon.  Maybe this Minnesota girl has been "cooped up" too long?  This snow and cold is driving me to...decorate...
