Some finishes & more yard sale goodies

Good morning bloggin' buddies. It was a gloomy & rainy day yesterday, so I finished up a couple of things I had laying around the house. I made 2 of these wool pumpkins with Tom the turkey on them. This is another Country Stitches pattern. I love her patterns!

Sheep punch needle (also by Country Stitches). I mounted it on an old box I painted & stained.

Crow & star punch needle mounted on a drink coaster that was painted & stained.

And my final finish for yesterday, a punch needle house mounted on a basket I painted & stained to make it look older. Sorry the picture is a little blurry~A PHOTOGRAPHER I AM NOT!! LOL

I also have a few more yard sale goodies to share with you. An old milking stool. I will probably paint this & add a penny rug to the top.

A wooden cabinet for $5. This will probably get painted and primmed up.

Feed sack. I liked the graphics on the front. Not sure what to do with it yet. I would love to hear any ideas you might have for it.

An old framed print. I have an Americana themed hallway, so this will fit in nicely.

One of my favorite finds from the weekend. This stack of shaker boxes. They are not old, but for $2, I will find somewhere to put them.

It looks to be a beautiful day today except for being a little soggy from yesterdays rain. I have a stack of patterns to go through. I feel like making a dollie or two today, so I need to settle on which pattern to try. Have a wonderful day!!

WOW! You found some great bargins at the yard sales. That cabinet is amazing for $5.00! I have yet to find great deals like that here in Portland.

Can't wait to see the finished products!

Hi Becky...well you are one creative Lady!
Oh I wish I could get into Needle Punching....I have approx. 7 kits in a drawer upstairs just screaming at me! lol
I think now that my website orders are slowing down I can get to them...ya, that's what I'm going to do today...I was wondering what I was going to do!

Love your blog and now sure why I keep missing you - you are on my list and I follow you!
I will be better I promise.
