You know how it is; you sit down to Google ostrich feather dusters and before you know it you've followed a link to a link to a link to a link that makes you stop and forget why you sat down in front of the computer in the first place.

Today I found this contest on "A Resting Place."  The blogger, Melisa, and her husband recently launched their internet store called Rekoncile Design.  Talk about trash to treasure, these two have been busy recycling peoples' castoffs and transforming them into functional works of art.  If you are in need of some new design ideas or simply love to shop, check 'em out.

Oh, and enter the contest quickly - it's over on June 28th.
