A Giveaway, Crates, Pantry Cakes, and More
Anne over at Seasons Of The Past is having a wonderful Spring Renewal Giveaway.She is giving away some great things, so go on over and check it out!
I finished painting the two crates I got at GW a couple days ago. I still not sure what I am going to do with them yet. I think I will put some primitive grass and strawberries in the smaller one that I painted black. For now I just put some eggs in it . I still need to get some primitive grass. I'm not sure about the large crate, but I'm thinking out front on my little porch area with pots of flowers in it . I just sat the pantry cakes in it for the picture.Here is something I came up with onTuesday that took me about 15 minutes to think of and finish. I was putting something away in my school closet and my Williamsburg quilt calendar from last year fell off the shelf. I love the quilt pictures in it, so I kept it in case I ever wanted to use the pictures. Well, sitting on the floor in the closet was this large black frame that I bought for my Declaration of Independance, but it was the wrong size. I started flipping through the calendar and picked a quilt that looked very Colonial and then found some fabric that I had that matched well. I painted over the quilt picture quickly with my antiquing glaze and painted a little mod podge on the back. I put the quilt picture on the fabric and into the frame. I love it! I was so excited with this little project! The fabric in the picture looks brighter than it is. It is more of a brownish gold color. I don't think you can tell that the quilt picture is paper. It looks like a stitchery or something.
This is a little bird makedo I made with the floral fabric that I like so much. I think it turned out pretty cute!
I also sewed up this little bag for the wool I got on sale the other day. I like it hanging on this peg board.
Yesterday I made my first pantry cakes and they turned out so good! I was really excited because they were so easy and I love how they look.Thanks Linda , for sharing the recipe! I am working on a gathering that I will be listing on Liberty Hill later today that includes one of the cakes.
I hope you all are having a good week. We have had wonderful weather here. It's feeling like Spring and I'm so happy about that! Have a wonderful Thursday!
