What's a Hillbilly Treasure?

I suppose now-a-days they call it "Re-Purposing." Where I come from...you call it "Making it do with what ya got!"

For a fun and unusual blog experience, come and check out my other blog:

Those of you that follow my Hillbilly Housewife blog might just be thinking...Why in the world is she blogging again if she can't keep up with the one she's got. Well, to my credit, I can't help it when the new hometown can't get the internet hooked up..and when they finally do..my computer gets a virus!

To those of you that don't follow the other blog. HOWDY! I'm just a crazy Hillbilly, that has alot of irons in the fire and tries to keep up with all of them. The hardest to keep up with is about 5 months old..and he pretty much runs the show. It's up to him if I have a productive day or not!

Now, about this blog...and why it's seperate from the other one. Recently, in all my blog hopping, I've stumbled across re-purposing, and I've fallen in love. I have a few treasures that I've come across that we will be working on, and that is what this blog is all about. This will be a simple blog. Pretty much just a before and after type of thing, once we get up and going.

I've even gone so far as to open a seperate etsy shop called Hillbilly Treasures. Currently there isn't much there, except some denim jeans and neckties I re-purposed into aprons. (But please take a look. I think they are cute.) I have A LOT of denim to list on etsy as I've been re-purposing it for awhile, but have been saving it for the right time to sell it. The photos on this blog today show my own personal Hillbilly Apron.

In the future, I have a large variety of things I plan on listing. Re-purposing takes time. I try to use mostly up-cycled materials, so they are sometimes slowly collected. In my next blog, I will show you some 'treasures' that I am hoarding, waiting to make them into just the right thing!

For Hillbilly fun, please come on over and visit MY OTHER BLOG! Also, my HILLBILLY WIFE etsy shop is a nice place to visit if you've got a minute.
