Eep!  I hope I'm not too late!

At first I wasn't going to do this challenge...that is, until I found this GORGEOUS picture at Texas Thrift for $1.88.  It was actually so pretty that I considered not doing anything to it at all, and picking something else, but ultimately I decided to go with this one.

Here's the before:

And here's the after:

I made a point to use only items that I already had at home, so this cost nothing more than the picture itself!  The background was blotted on with stencil paint on a paper towel.  The stars and moon are beaded, and a little faux fur make her collar, trim, and muffs.  The earring is a heart-shaped charm.

Now that I look at it, I wish I had been able to figure out something to do with the cute little cabbit thing, but I didn't have time.

Kindness isn't dead.  Promise.

This is pretty cool!  I like that you used only materials found at home -- a real thrifty thrift store revamp!

It is totally 1970s.
