Is it getting warmer where you are ? We are expecting 60* by Friday:) Yeah!!! I'm certainly ready for warmer weather not hot yet but weather that lets you get out of the house, maybe I'll even go to the flea market Sunday, will see:)
Before I get to what I worked on today let me show you what Linda from Behind My Red Door sent me. I recieved the sweetest, little blue coverlet pillow in the mail Monday and the cutest handmade card from her, she said she was in some stuff of hers and found the blue pillow and thought of me so sent it along. I just love it and put it in the basket with the others. Thanks again Linda! Sorry the picture didn't come out very good. This is what I've been working on... the grunged up eggs that Lisa from Blacksheep Primitives posted about, thanks for posting this Lisa! They turned out neat I think, I only did three and put them in the Prairie Grass I got from The Rusty Angel, in a yelloware bowl that I found for half off at The Country Store. The plastic eggs I bought at Walmart for $1.00 for 12 and I used modge podge, cheescloth and cinnamon. I had whole cloves and tried to crush them but no luck with them so I just used the cinnamon:0 They dried up real quick too:)
Then I decided to do the little, wood candle holder that I found at GW for .49, I painted over the blue with brown paint then after that dried I used light buttermilk. After it dried I distressed it and used walnut stain, some of the blue shows thur...it came out so prim and to think I had put it back on the shelf thank goodness no one else bought it! I don't have a place for it yet but when I do I'll show a pic!
I guess today I've been in a painting/staining mood, so out of my Easter stash I found this basket that was my mom's I remember her buying it at a Hallmark store, she got it for a $1.43 on sale so you know that it was a while ago:) It was a real light wood color so I stained it walnut and now it is good to go...I put the grunged up eggs in it so you could see how prim it is stained!
Speaking of Hallmark, I'm so hooked on the Hallmark channel...such good movies and in the movies some great homes decorated with old things:) Try it:)
Be sure to stop over Leslie's from My Country Home to see what everyone else has been up to:)
