Another groovey Up Cycled Gift Sim made me for Christmas!!!



 
I had this ideal pinned on Pinterest for the longest time and I kept telling Sim I wanted to show it to him. So finally one day I did. For the longest time Sim kept going in the garage and telling me not to go in there. He was making me something for Christmas! He kept saying you know don't you? I actually thought he was making me a stove board!! LOL I had totally forgotten about this pin!!
 
 
This wagon was my son Danny's!! We used it so much!! He loved it! Even Kaitlin was pulled in it!! It was real rusty and well used and loved!! Danny is 24 now. Sim added the vintage wheels the original one that I pinned didn't have them. The base is very important too. An older lady I lived next door to growing up that was like a Grandma to me had this sewing machine n base in her rickety garage. I got it from her. The sewing machine is all rusty and is out in the front garden. This base was painted black and I just had a board on it. I put a few of my Raggedy Ann's in there for now. We are gonna be changing the kitchen one of these days. A couple of my dolls are from Ebay a few years ago so if you see one and it was yours you made let me know!! The matching Annie n Andy are made from a friend for me just cuz. I just LOVE this now!! I am sure I will have many different things in it!! LOL
I went to the Lung Docter today and I still have a little bit of the pnemounia BUT I am alot better and he said it takes alot of time to get rid of but he is positive I am gonna be just fine!! Woo Hoo!! I am feeling a skip in my step and ready to go forward!! Creating here I come!!
XOXO Love ya Fran.

I am sooooo happy I saw this post! I also saw this on Pinterest and pinned it - but, now I think I really need to do this. I have both the wagon and the sewing treadle - now I just have to talk my sweet hubs into doing it!
