Holiday

I do my best to keep my personal goings on out of business but I think it is time to tell you what is happening. I have been battling a new case of Lyme Disease since June. The first time I had Lyme, I never had a rash. This time, the bull's eye rash was about 12 inches in diameter and took over the right side of my rib cage. Treatment has been difficult and I am struggling immensely with pain and neurological symptoms. On Wednesday evening I went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital after losing the ability to walk without assistance, severe head pain, tremors in my limbs and passing out numerous times. I was kept overnight for observation then released yesterday. Lyme is so unpredictable as are the symptoms. I thank you for your prayers, encouragement and grace during this time.

Kimber and my family continue to be rock stars in the midst of a crazy time. I'm super thankful for their help and support. So if you are seeing a bit less of me, this is why. I want to assure you that Kimber has you covered with all of your DIY needs and continues to manage the store with precision.

I am working from home trying to add more goodies to the Website to make your holiday shopping much easier. If you are in the shop and are interested in having us ship your items as a gift to someone, we are happy to do so. You can also check out our Website (links below).

Here are a couple of links to some fun gift ideas. I'm adding to this daily so keep checking back. https://thereclaimedtreasures.com/collections/christmas

Thank you all for continuing to support our small business. We are thankful for you.

Humbly,

Seasonal home décor and gifts that are sure to brighten any holiday.

We paint often in our workshop and I can't tell you how many times customers have put their hands in our project by accident. This made me giggle today:)

Tune in tomorrow to see what is coming next from Iron Orchid Designs.

After the gingerbread house planning disaster last year (shhhh... it's still a sore subject for Josie), they moved on to creating this year's holiday designs.

And as you know, there's never a dull moment when you get these two together... which brings us to TOMORROW, Tuesday, October 26 at 11am PST (2pm EST).

In less than 24 hours, they'll be going Live on Facebook and YouTube to share what they made for you.

Keep in mind, even elves rely on the global supply chain. (Santa's no fool, he wouldn't let them borrow his sleigh! 🙈🎅😆)

This means the designs won't be available for purchase for a few weeks, but many stockists are taking pre-orders, so be sure to reserve your favorite designs after the reveal.

Hope to see you LIVE tomorrow for all the fun (or you can always catch the replay)!

Don't blink or you'll miss it!

We can't wait for you to see this new IOD product. There is nothing like it on the market. You are going to adore it. We have them in stock but can't show you until tomorrow. Look at this little teaser. EEEEEKKKKK...so excited!!!

10/20/2021

As you may know, the price of raw materials/supplies is increasing throughout the country. Shipping/freight charges have gone up as well and all of them with additional surcharges tacked onto the prices; some are an additional 15%.

As a courtesy to our faithful customers, we want to inform you ahead of time of a price increase that will be taking place on some Fusion Mineral Paint products, including pints of paint. The new pricing will begin November 1. For those of you with upcoming or ongoing projects, we wanted you to know this price increase date to give you an opportunity to get your supplies before the increase. Fusion, in my opinion, has always been priced very cost effective. Their products are of the highest quality and the company has the utmost integrity. As you know this is very important to us here at The Reclaimed Treasures. Fusion is a company we stand by and will continue to support. If you haven't tried Fusion, we know you'll love it. If you have been using Fusion, you can expect the same quality products and amazing customer service.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you!

I have giggled all day demonstrating these to customers as they come in. They can be short, tall or in between (the gnomes, not the customers lol). They "telescope" to change the height. So stinkin' cute. They are limited and sold out with our vendor. Snag one while you can:)

One of my greatest joys in this business is the absolute privilege to be a part of our customer's lives and special events. This sign was made for a special couple for their wedding day. I hand painted with Fusion Mineral Paint and adorned with IOD - Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers.

Brian and Brooke, thank you for trusting me with such a special event!

New product alert!! Stop in and check out all of our new products. Here are a few pictures for you to drool over. Let us know if you are interested in any of these goodies. We can invoice you and set them aside until you can pick them up.

These pinecone orbs are delicate, fresh and beautiful for this season. Use all winter long as part of your tablescape, on top of a candle holder or just as an accent on a table.

Our black metal lanterns are the perfect accent for your table or fireplace mantel. These graduate in height. We have one set left in stock. Use with our push flame candles or sit your favorite orb on top of the pedestal. Very versatile.

These red ball ornaments are candy dishes that would look amazing as part of your dinner party or sitting on a table with your favorite candies inside. Two styles to choose from.

We adore these pinecone cylinders. There are three different sizes to choose from including one stemmed piece. All of these come with small lights to add that extra bit of ambience to your table.

Thanks for looking...hope you enjoy!

If you'd like to participate in one of our workshops, stay tuned as we add more dates for September and October.

I am totally crushing on this metal awning. This one is 48" in length and so versatile. Use over a doorway or on a feature wall. You can extend it out or lay it flat against the surface. I adore this one.

Our custom signs are a hit so let us know if you are in the market for a special gift for someone or come to one of our workshops and make it yourself.

Happy Sunday!! Enjoy these last few days before school starts. Woo hooo!!!

Sometimes our workshops turn into one-on-one goodness. We sure enjoyed time with you, Melissa. We hope you feel encouraged to take on your Fusion Mineral Paint project. We started with a plain wood board and went through all the steps of success for painting a project with Fusion. We used an Iron Orchid Designs First Generation transfer called Bien. Melissa is going to add some awesome hooks and this project will be done. If you haven't been to one of our workshops, check out the ones we have scheduled and stay tuned as we add more.

Our Story

Ten years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I was crippled and in intense pain. I literally prayed that God would use my hands to create something beautiful since my legs were not working the way they should. Painting became a part of my healing and a way for me to focus on something other than my pain.

In 2016, The Reclaimed Treasures was created by me and my former business partner, Denise. At the time, we had both escaped life threatening medical issues. I had been in a car accident and an incidental finding was a brain aneurysm. It was a tough few months but Denise and I decided to press through. The name “Reclaimed” isn’t about home decor or furniture. To me, it about reclaiming each day for joy and being thankful for the gift of today.

Although I love to paint furniture and to sell items in my shop, my focus is to reach the hearts of those who enter my doors. Each person has value. Each person has a story. Sometimes my customers just need to “be”. We have laughed together and we have cried together. I have been inspired by my customers, challenged, and sharpened. What a gift this is to be a part of!

So who am I? I am a Christian, a wife to my best friend (he is my biggest cheerleader by the way), and a mother to four incredible children and a son-in law that I adore. I’m a furniture artist and lover of DIY.

My dad made this solid wood lamp in his high school shop class more than 60 years ago. My daughter rewired it so I could use it. I'm using wise owl white tea furniture salve to rejuvenate and protect the wood and bring back some shine. It smells so good and the wood is not showing its age so much. I hope you can see the difference the salve is making in this picture.
