~Friday Fun~

Hi everyone,
I've been reading blogs and everyone has such neat things that they have done...I know I haven't completed so much in all my days of loving prim things and it's all due to blogging! It's just been wonderful meeting each and everyone of you:)
Yesterday in the mail (this time it could fit in the mailbox) a package from Jo-Ann from The Carter Clan arrived. What a wonderful person she is...I won one of her consolation prizes and this is what it was, I just love it and for now it is hanging on my bathrooom cupboard everytime I look at it I think of Jo-Ann, she has also been so sweet to my son Michael and Corrie and Jo-Ann will always be special to me. Thank you Jo-Ann! Yesterday I finally got around to doing this sugar bucket, I've always wanted to paint it and after seeing a couple ladies blogs where they had did just that I finally took the plunge and painted it. I'm so glad I did because I love how it turned out, I used a can of spray paint called sand then stained it:)
This is how it was before, I've had it forever and got it at a yardsale for $5.00.

I've been busy today went to get nails, toes and eyebrows done, then went to Goodwill, nothing much there but I did find a neat, Thanksgiving tablecloth for $3.00, I've always wanted one but never wanted to spend the money for it. I also stopped at a garage sale, not a good one, but I did buy a nice sunflower wreath for a $1.00.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, here in Pa. we are having a beautiful Indian summer!!!

It is the nudge you need, the inspiration required sometimes to move forward and just get things done. I love the little crow, they are my favorite! Your little firkin turn out great! Love it all! ~Beth~

  18. Hi Rondell! Congrats on winning all those wonderful prim accents for your home. I honestly can't believe someone would just mark wrong address and leave a parcel sitting in the rain. Thank goodness everything made it to you safe and dry.
    The sugar bucket looks great with it's new paint job.
    Have a great weekend! :)

  25. Hi Rondell,

    Unfortunately, I can not do the blanket stitch either. I only blanket stitch the outer edge. I have tried and tried and have yet been successful.

    Another blogger friend told me to just do a normal stitch, it works fine also. So that is how I have been doing my penny rugs. I find it is alot less of a headache and I personally like the way they turn out.

    So maybe you want to give that a try. And the the blanket stitch is a cinch for the outer the edge.

    Hope this helps :)
