Giveaway, redos! Where to start??

I was such a busy bee yesterday. It was another 65-degree day, so out I went. I did find some goodies! (more on that later). I've been reading everyones' blogs and it seems like every TS is a bit bare these days. Now what's that about, do you think? That does not make me a happy girl! But, my concession shop was just chock-full yesterday, (prices higher, tho), so I came home with 'stuff." And -- I finally got the stupid memory thingie for my camera while I was out. Like, so, what a difference! DUHHHHH!
First of all, yes, we are approaching my 50th post very soon, so I am offering a lovely little giveaway to mark the occasion. Now, I tried and tried to make this look very nice, but the lighting in here was weird last night, so let me tell you what is in it: a candle holder redo and grubbed candle, 2 candle tarts, a wonderful SPRING wall hanging for those of you who like Spring stuff, and a little wooden holder covered with homespun. The swan is big and painted on wood. Don't know why it came out looking so small...

I'd like to offer this giveaway to anyone who is a follower of Big City Prims, because you have all been so nice in welcoming me to blog-land. If you're not a follower, you should be!! LOL. All you need to do is sign up to follow the blog, drop me an email and let me know you want to be entered. I will have my GF pick a name next Thursday, Feb 19th after WW meeting. So, sign up! I'll redo the pic to make it look nicer, as you don't have to see all the dust on my black rug! I also finally figured out how to do a slide show -- so if you'd like to see Big City Prim's apt, click the pic to the right!
Now for the redos. Here is the candle holder:
It's "ok" -- not great, but it will do. And the bowl -- I did a black paint on the bowl but left the arm brown. It's another just "ok." I might add this one to the list of things to swap. The best was the salt box, which did come out nice in a blue-black.

Well, that's it for now -- I will show you my new jugs tomorrow! And... don't forget my 5oth post giveaway! Have a great Monday!


  1. Ummm, do I want to see your "jugs"! I don't think that would be appropriate for the internet...well not this one! LOL LOL LOL
    I hope you got that!
    I love your redo's! Paint the handle of the bowl too, and sand it a little bit to age it. I think you will like the outcome! Any paste wax? That would be great too!
    I too, love that salt box. Go ahead and add that to your giveaway, and I will be glad to accept that into my home!

Good Morning Terry!....boy you HAVE been busy haven't you!....not sure posting pics of your "jugs" is a good idea though, LOL!! has been warm here in Central Virginia too and I don't like it either, I thought I was the only person in the universe who didn't want to be reminded of spring, so now I know there are two of us in the universe!
