Hey Everyone!...I have been so busy!...Crafting away!...getting ready for FALL!!!Yea!..I love Fall!..Can't wait for it to get here!..Anywho I wanted to share an idea I got from another blog..(I really wish I could remember the name)...I seen it and fell in love with look!...She took a piece wood wedged from a tree cut down and painted it to look like watermelon!...I thought now why didn't I think of that? My FIL had a few trees cut down on his property and I took the wedges...They have sold like wildfire!..Who would've thought?..I kept the biggest one for my front stoop!..here it is..I have had several neighborhood people want to buy it!...I already have a couple of orders for them too!..Well I just wanted to drop a quick post!...So until next time...I'll take mine Americana!...

Good Monday morning to all!...So over the weekend..my hubby and I went crazy going to swap meets, garage sales, craft fairs and antique malls! We had such a great time! On our way out Saturday morning...my husband says (he works at our local highschool) one of our Science teachers threw away an old rocking chair...it is beyond repair..but I really think we could use the spindles on some crafts!...I thought..hmmmm...let's go check it out!...Boy oh boy am I glad we did! I love these!..One of the things we built was using one of the spindles as a handle!..(I got this idea from another blog..I wish I could remember which one..oh well.."Thanks" whoever you were!) We found so many cool things on our weekend hunt!..( I will post pics later). I am now making table benches...I have had a request for these..so here it is (of course it still needs painted and sanded and distressed!)..October (my craft fair) will be here before I know it!...so I better get back to work!...Until next time..I'll take mine Americana!

Hello ladies...and a Good Monday to you all!...I just wanted to share a project I am working on. I have seen these houses in craft shops for way more than I am willing to spend!...soooo...I thought...why not make one?..sooo I found some scrap wood and (with hubby's help) I constucted one!..The picture shows it right after I had sanded it down. I hope to have some finished pics on here tomorrow! I am doing a local craft show in October and hope to "construct" some more. So..be honest...tell me what you think!..I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!..Until next time..I'll take mine Americana!

I have been looking for some affordable ones like these forever!!.So you can guess how happy I was!!..I was actually looking at some other things and my hubby said..haven't you been looking for these?...I couldn't believe it!..then a little later we found the two enamelware bowls (with red too) for only 1.00 a piece! My kitchen is done in coca-cola with red lower walls...so I am sooo happy to find these!..Also today we found 2 really cool baskets..also for 1.00 each!!.(it must 1.00 day!), and 2 graters..one for .25 the other for .50...( I think they will look cool with some tea lights in them), a wooden potato masher for 2.00, an old bottle with a handle for .75 and last but not least a grapevine tree for .75..I am so excited!..it feels like Christmas!!..I hope you ladies had a wonderful Saturday!!!...Well, I am going out to work in my yard...until next time..I'll take mine Americana!
