In Buffalo, Minnesota resides the queen of repurposing and thrifting, Rosalie Darden. It should be quite apparent by now that we love most anything that has new life breathed into it and flipping a find beats a night out on the town (almost) every time. Though we might have met our match in Rosalie, see why after the jump.

The Star Tribune featured a few photos of Rosalie's home and we have to admit, we were smitten. An extra large mailbox used as a trash can? Yes please. An iron grate as a curtain? Well why didn't we think of that? Splitting a vintage cookie jar between two shelves to make it fit better? Sheesh, we might need to beef up our skills a bit! A bent fork as a curtain tie back? Never would have guessed — and get a load of that ceiling in the kitchen!

Make sure to stop over at The Star Tribune to check out even more of Rosalie's collections, display skills and diy projects around the home. There's a collection of painted busts, a faux stone floor from linoleum tiles and more!
