I received a lovely package last week from Sondra at Aged Essence. It was wrapped up so cute. Here is what I got. Don't you love the bracelet? I wore it right away. And the notecards are wonderful--I have already used a few. The little spool of fuzzy yarn is so cute I don't want to use the yarn--I have it sitting out as a decoration. Thank you so much Sondra and don't forget to visit her at http://sondraschuld.blogspot.com/ (P.S. How do you get these to show up as a link??)

Now for a sort of project. I took out some new things I hadn't shown you to my antique booth today and totally forgot to take pictures. I was a little distracted--managed to break two bowls and a glass at my booth and the shark cordless sweeper that belongs to the antique barn. I bought them a new one. My brain has understandably been scattered.
For the project I liked the best that I took out there, you will have to use your imagination so close your eyes and picture the red vinyl covered, white iron little bench I showed a while back on project seven day. Got it? Now picture the rose quilt bulletin board I showed as a quick project. I took that same pillow sham and covered the stool. It was so cute and quick. I also took some more candlesticks like these. Can you guess what the shorter one is made of? It is a pepper grinder. The wood ones from the 70's and 80's are abundant at thrift stores. Unscrew the top, take out the metal middle and paint it up and you have a candlestick. The taller candlestick is a brass one that I painted. Just use a little primer first. I did get a call tonight from the antique barn where I have my stuff and one lady came in and bought 5 pieces--a few that had been there from the beginning that I just moved around today. She also bought the bench that you imagined and the matching bulletin board.
