I’m so proud of our redesign today. But first, I want to introduce you to new friend of mine. Her name is Retro Wifey and she’s on
Face Book here
And, she blogs here!
This lovely retro-woman, who is a wife and mother of three living in Maryland, received an email from me, a total stranger (but avid Face Book, pintrest, blog, and twitter follower), asking if she would post about my Nano-Canning eBook giveaway last week and she did it! How incredible of her. Do you know she helped me give away 800 eBooks?!?!
She is just the sweetest woman and I love following her on all these media outlets – and so will you! She has a joy about her that is contagious. I always feel better after reading one of her funny posts. I know you will too! Please visit all these sites and add them to your “regulars”, she is so worth it! When you do, please tell her I sent you – I owe her!
Now, on to our repurpose: As I have told you before Son Smarty-Pants will be graduating from Law School if a few short weeks and has had a job for the last few month with a municipal bond firm. He also sits on the 4-H Foundation of Oklahoma. When he was a Senior in High School he was the state president. He’s been involved with 4-H since he was a kid. He GOT involved because his dad told him all the cute girls were in 4-H, he stayed involved because he was able to acquire so many life skills. It made him a great orator which in turn helped him graduate with membership in The Order of Barristers. As a foundation member, it is important for him to contribute to fundraisers each year and this year he asked us to help. The following is what we came up with:
Doesn’t that just Rock?!?!

You are always involved in such fun, innovative and creative projects – your transformation is stunning and you cannot even imagine that rust bucket picture being the same 😀

I’m glad you like retro wifey! She’s great! Thank you so much for your kind compliments – I really do appreciate them!
Thus is awesome! I am looking to do this project, but can’t find any tutorials! Can you provide a step by step on how you did this? Or at least how you put the tractor seat on the milk can?
Hi Katelyn, thanks for dropping by! Yes, I can share how you get the tractor seat on the lid! You drill a hole in the lid and handle of lid if it has one. Then you get a REALLY long and big bolt and nut. Stick the bolt in and screw the nut tight – put the lid/seat onto the milk can. Some people weld them onto the can but I can’t weld – I CAN drill though!
