From trash to treasure!

From the Accessories...
Our story isn’t over yet. A big thank you has to go out to Amy‘s grandmother Ada Brown a.k.a. Granny Brown. Granny taught Amy everything she knows about crafting, art, and most importantly how to turn trash into treasures. At a young age Amy would go garbage picking, Rummage sale-ing and garage sale-ing, looking for things they could fix up or use in a craft project. So because of that we have a chance at a new life out of the landfill and into your home.

Details
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Amy Brown-Coleman has been keeping unwanted items out of landfills for over 30 years, thanks in big part to her Grandmother Ada Brown, AKA Granny Brown.
Amy’s earliest memories of turning Trash into Treasure were at the age of 8 or 9, when the lace trim was tearing off her doll’s blanket. The blanket had become very tattered around the edges. Amy was sure it was time to toss the blanket, but Granny Brown had a different idea.
Granny said, “yes, the lace is old...it will need to come off. The blanket edges will need to be trimmed too, but I will show you how to sew and we can turn the rest of the material into
