About 3 weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a giveaway on Our Craft Forum and won this fabulous book from Sandy.

book and doily

Sandy wrapped the book in that gorgeous doily as she knows I love them. Thanks Sandy!

I am enjoying reading the book too.

I found this gorgeous little jug in a local thrift shop, that's another thing I love….old jugs!

Little jug

Another thing I love is tins. There are some fabulous tins out there and when I was doing Folk Art & Decorative painting, I would paint them if they were plain janes.

This one is a thin one but a long one. Cheeky mice!

This one isn't really a little tin but an old metal hat box.

I loved painting this watering can for a lady……she loved it too.

I should get my paints out again and finish off the UFO’s I have that are waiting to be finished.

Hugs to all….
