So my wife has been putting together some pieces for a display case for some of her old crocks. We’ve found the pieces, and the fun began.

Here is the blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Nice. Seems like your projects always come together quickly. That is a skill in itself.

That’s fantastic Don! Nothing like a bit of salvage and repurposing.
