GeT er DoNe...

I have been working on some projects getting them painted and grunged..I bought this cheese(?) box years ago at the TS and its been sitting on a I pulled it down and am in the process of painting it..what color..not sure...what do you think? and I have some old fashioned clothespins that I stained photo below..

there is the black box...but what color to paint it..I also took some wooden eggs and painted and sanded and primmed them up..does my craft table look horrible or has served its purpose...:)
here are some paper mache boxes that I just did..I think they turned out rather well..

these used to be my sugar and flour jars..but I am going to put stuff in them and use them in my craft room with some really cool labels that I am getting from Rene...can't wait..

here is the new sugar and flour containers..I bought these from Tupperware..I just love em! and they stack and they hold so much...I have a scoop for each one inside..they also come with a lid that has holes for putting potatoes or onions so they can breathe..I love the red...that big jar I got is holding pop tarts in it right now..I may still use it for the laundry soap..haven't decided...right now it is in a rubbermade container..

I decided to pull out my graters that I actually purchased for Mice sleds..but haven't used em so I decided to display them till I I hung a board up with those square nails and wah la!..they look right at home there...I bought this neat litte push cart that I just love it has electricity and it it so much better then the italian t-cart that didn't go with the rest of our it is packed and in a box...should just sell it..but hubby won't let me..if its in a should just go bye my mother in law would love it.. or my mommy would love it too..I know I don't want it..should ask them...well we went to Lowes today and shopped a bunch of odds and ends then headed to Costco. .got 3 items and they totalled 100 bucks..geez we always say you can't leave that store without spending at least that...I got some computer ink and vitamins...then we headed for home..gotta go and get dinner going...on tonights menu is pork chops, garlic parmesaen smashed potatoes and brussels and onions and can never have too much garlic..gotta keep those vampires at bay...have a great weekend...:)
