Happy New Year and 2011 Top 10 of 2011

Roadkill Rescue is still a mere baby at only 4 months old. However, within four months this site has grown and thousands of you have fallen in love with trash to treasure projects like I have.  I thought I would highlight the top posts of 2011 (according to Google Analytics).

1. Congratulations to April of Home Hinges for clinching the top Roadkill Rescue of 2011.  She took an old TV and turned it into a sheet music cabinet.  It is quite impressive.  Click here to see more.

Wow you ladies continue to blow me away with your creativity, use of power tools and your no holds barred when it comes to scouring curbsides to transform dilapidated, unwanted pieces into show stopping décor for your home.

Thank you for coming to this site each day to get your fill of junkin to jewels and for turning my passion into my career.  My heart is overflowing with gratitude {Group hug!}

Continue to wow me in 2012!
