Back in the summer sometime, you might remember me finding what was probably a bird or squirrel feeder at Goodwill. I'm not really sure that's what it was intended to be. Anyway, I brought it home fairly sure that I could make something primitive out of it.
Here's a before picture:
I painted it black, distressed it a little, added a rusty screw, hung some dried lavender, and put rose hips and cinnamon sticks in the botom. My first intention had been to hang tapers on the nail, but my tapers were too long. However, for a change I may add the little "knubbie" hanging candles when I get some of those.
And Saturday, Joy and I stopped in Goodwill and I was excited to find these two pieces:
The bowl is perfect as is. I couldn't believe it.....no paint required! lol! This was on the first aisle I walked down! And the wooden box has already been painted and distressed as I came in immediately yesterday and got to work on it. I will be filling it with prim goodies (I'm thinking prim ornies, candles, sweet annie, homespun...) and adding it to my kitchen. I'll share it when it all comes together.
And....one more thing....We've been working on the giveaway for my 100th post...so stay tuned!
