Crocks, frames and projects!

Two post in one day, I could scare myself! But it is getting me closer to my 100th post, and I do have a giveaway ready!!! Yesterday, I hit a few TS in Joplin. The big blue frame was an 08 calender. I could see it painted black and a nice big sampler put in it. I picked up a couple more nice frames I plan to paint. I got home and realized I now have tons of them. I need to stop with the frames. I loved the crock I found for $1.00. I put it on the hearth of the fireplace. I've had my eye open for old cutting boards, without having to pay to much for them. I think I pd. $3.95 for this one. I like the look of those I see on many of your blogs behind a crock on a counter top. I am wanting to get some pine to make a noodle board for my gas stove. I want one of those so bad! I have a hard time passing up any grater and the long old treenware with the cinnamon sticks i liked, I will possibly put a candle in that with some small berries. I have finished some small samplers in those $ store frames I bought a while back. I like how those turned out. I like to watch TV and stitch in the evenings up in my craft rm. Taylor is going to a Valentines Dance tonight. Had to have a new sparkly dress and shoes. To be in 8th grade again, no actually I wouldn't want to do that again~
all her little friends are meeting at a friends house to get ready. Maybe I'll post a picture of her tonight! well I have better go see what else I can get done before the day is over. Have a great one.

Hi Dawn!
I do love your stitcheries. I'm so happy to have some. Thank you so much again.
I don't know if I'm suppose to tell you this, but your swap is on the way. I mailed it Fri. morning, so be on the look-out for it.
I would love to find one of those calendar frames, and I can hardly pass up graters either.
Happy Valentines Day!

Hello Dawn dear,
I love those stitcheries also!!!
I don't stitch them, I paint them.
My hands don't hold out long enough to stitch.
I have a silly question for you Dawn dear, where in Kansas do you live??? Email me!!
