Our county fair week has come to a close,
and I've finally had a chance to catch up
on a few projects of my own!
I washed, sealed, and prettied up the sweet little aqua door
mom sent home with me a few weeks ago.
It has found a home in my scrap/craft/guest room upstairs.
I've also attacked this pile of Goodwill goodies.
The Atlas jar has been hard at work as a vase on my kitchen counter.
Because my kitchen is never clean enough to photograph,
please just visualize it full of purple cone flowers.
Did you notice the little wire basket on the door?
A little "Goo Gone" is all it took to remove the label from the "Poppy Pitcher." There's just something about yellow and red that screams Ronald McDonald at me, so out came the spray paint.
Oops! Should have moved that jar of buttons out of the way,
but that's as good as it's going to get today!
The silk flowers were a dime a stem from a local craft shop.
Meet my great-grandparents
(in a frame I'd love to change, but the photo is stuck to the glass).
Think I could paint that gold part a different color?
Anyway, this little arrangement sits on the nightstand
next to the bed in my scrap/craft/guest room.
This room is taking on a completely new look,
and I promise to feature it in a future post!
The toolbox has been stained and stenciled
and is now this planter on our back porch.
It belongs to "Cabin #4."
(Remember that "campy" theme
I decided to go with on the back porch?
I wish we had a "Cabin #4,"
but it's completely fictitious. . .
And finally, I dug this old calendar frame out of the basement.
I always thought it was so cute,
but I could never find a calendar to fit in it!
Why did it take so many years for this to dawn on me?
A chalkboard! Perfect!
Here it is on a shelf in my scrap/craft/guest room . . .
Ugh . . . so much to blog, so little time.
Still to come . . .
my first shot at bread and butter pickles,
Thanks for stopping by!
