Hello Dear Friends! This is a (little) Trash-To-Treasure finish... so very simple! I found this stray, wooden salad bowl at the Goodwill store not long ago. It is small ~ only about 6 inches across. I've seen painted wooden bowls of all sizes used in prim decorating & just love them. So, I couldn't pass it up... especially at only 49 cents.
After a quick spray of flat black, then some Christmas red... a little sanding... and finally a shoe polish of brown...
It has become the perfect storage for my sugar~free, fat~free, calorie~free candy canes... that I'm using for dolly & ornie making. (This, of course, couldn't be used for edible food.)
Why only this (little) T2T finish? Well, I've been wrapped up PUNCHING all weekend... and LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT! Here is what I've been working on just over the last few days...
With the exception of the darling lil' snow angel, all are my original ditties. Wanna know more about the darling lil' snow angel? Of course you do! It is adapted from a freebie offered by Robin of Bird In The Hand Primitives... swing on over & grab it! Plus, she has lots more you will wanna get while you are there too! Thank you Robin! I hope to finish punching mine soon & stitch it into a lil' pillow for my sister for her birthday.
Before I go back to my punching for the day... I wanted to let you know TWO new cross stitch patterns will be released on December 1st!
Wishing you many warm smiles...
