Project Finishing

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies! ~ Thank you all SO MUCH for the comments on my last post! I appreciate them SO much. I would like to give a warm welcome to my new followers as well!
Natalie asked in the comments if she could see the cabinet full of stockings. Well... that cabinet isn't full of stockings LOL. I do have some stitching in there and some figurines so I thought I would go ahead a take a picture.





Every now and again I find a bargain at a yard sale that I just can't pass up. I got this little painted galvanized bucket at a sale for a quarter! I knew that it wouldn't be left the way it was, so with some paint , some flags, greenery, and some ribbon.... this....





became THIS!


I picked up the flags around the 4th of July at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents each. I had the paint and ribbon , so the entire thing cost me $1.25. Not bad huh? I plan on putting it in my patriotic bathroom , that I will eventually get finished.
I also whipped up the Fall blanket for my little sheep. Here is the result of that effort.


I finsihed BBD's Autumn Song and was really eager to get it finished into a box. I wanted to use the dark paint but couldn't find the right shade so I opted for Delta's spice Brown instead. For the band and the lining in the bottom , I used a print that had leaves and acorns on it. I think it goes really well.







Well, that will be it for today ! I will hopefully be back this week for another post, we shall see.
You all take care and I hope you all have a great week! I hope you all enjoyed your visit today! Come and visit again real soon! :)
'til next time,
don't be a stranger,
Sharlotte
