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!

Wow! Where to begin? First of all, I love those pantry cakes. Did you use your Pampered Chef to make them? They're great!

And your idea of the calendar page in the frame is wonderful! It does look like a stitchery! It looks fantastic! You're so smart and creative!

Everything you put together just works! I love it!
