This is a crate that Dwayne got for me on an on-line auction site. He power washed it and then I put orange berry vines and string lights in it and put it on top of the corner entertainment center he built me out of barn wood. It looks pretty at night. Another repurposed item. He is such a wonderful man to not only put up with my collecting (some would call it hoarding but they wouldn't be very nice :( )but he actually helps me when he sees something he knows I'll like.
Here are three more projects I painted that I thought I would share. None are new but they are to my new blog! The first is a folk art crow with a star on a pineapple, second is an apple on a teaspoon with a green plaid homespun bow, and third are two tin tiles with flowers on them.
Well my friends, I've taken the leap and started a blog. My friend Mary has been urging me to for some time now and I just didn't think I had anything interesting enough to say that the world at large wanted to hear. I probably don't but the curiosity has finally overtaken my reluctance and so here we are. I will put some pictures on here of projects as they come along and new goodies I get from all my treasure hunts. November 13, 2010 was the Pig-In-A-Poke Primitives show. This year it was in Angola, IN. Normally it is in Nashville, MI. I got a few things. Two old cutting boards and a cute little handcrafted ladder to hang goodies from. What goodies I don't know yet but that's the fun part! My friend Melanie went with me and it was fun to introduce her to the world of Prim! It gave me the urge to make things...... The season is right for it too. So many ideas and so little time. Please let me know what you are making these days.
