” A few little things”

I found a few budget- friendly items while shopping this week. These items will be used to complete miscellaneous projects around the house..chair projects etc 008

I am so happy when my treasure hunts are  successful and I can make progress in my ongoing list.  I shopped for a picture frame for my recently finished watercolor. The purchased ready-made frame is 18×24 and costed $25 after discount.

A glue disc was needed for  hanging a plate and that will finish the display for now.

I bought 3 of these little wodden boxes for $6.They can be used to hold flowers, herbs or decorative items for the appropiate season. I’m sure I can find many ways to use them, but first I must give them a weathered look.  I will need to mix up a little paint.

As always, the list continues.  This chair sits patiently waiting to get an update. Perhaps this may be the next project.

Or perhaps this little secretary desk badly in need of an update will be next.

Do you see a glimpse of the Tobacco basket on the right?  A neat find at an antique barn and soon I will find the sweet place for my treasure.
