Goodwill finds & New Country Sampler Magazine

Yeahhhh.... The new Country Sampler came in my mailbox yesterday. It is amazing ... I love this magazine.


I was in the Goodwill and I found the following: an old sled , two little cups (50 cents/ea, these are stamped as Pfalzgraff 100), I'm not sure if they are old but I love their color and blue print on it, and old strainer ($1 ). Probably, I can make a shoo fly with it.

On Sunday morning, I was in some antiques stores here in VA and see some old sleds. I was thinking that I need one for Christmas but the cheapest was $49.99 and the most expensive $79.00. And I decide to wait few months more to buy one. What a surprise when found one in the GW, I am thinking that it has good price, mine is only $12.50. What do you think ??? Here the pic.

**** New Makeovers ****

Yesterday, I was working in two new makeovers. The first one was wood spoons. I bought this package at Walmart for $1.00 / 4 spoons. I painted each one in different color: Yellow, Burnt umber and Barn Red, then stained them to give and old color.



The second project was this little cabinet. I sanded to remove their color and painted it black. After that , sanded again and use dark walnut stain on it. I think looks better now. I love black!!!! Before,

Have a wonderful evening! See you soon...

  12. I believe what you published made a ton of sense. However, think on this,
    suppose you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "Goodwill finds & New Country Sampler Magazine" is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news
    titles to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related
    picture or two to get people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
