A Win & Some Projects!

I want to thank Brenda over at the Rusty Thimble.....I won her giveaway!  It was for the My Memories Digital Software.  I've already downloaded everything and can't wait to get started!  Thanks Brenda :)

On another note, I finished a couple of other projects that I thought I would share.  Remember that whisk I had gotten at the church's flea market?  Well this is what I ended up doing with it:


I mock rusted it up a bit and made a little nest with egg.  Finished it off with some homespun :)


Here's a closeup of the nest & egg:




This next project idea came to me when I was out and about.  I found some wooden spoons that I new I wanted to do something with.  I decided to paint them and use them as a decorative hanging.  My hubby drilled some holes in the top and I poked some ribbon through.  Used a branch that I roughly painted to hang them on and here's the result:


A closer look at what I decided to paint.  Wanted the pictures to tie in together:


Now I just need to find a place to hang them :) 

That's about all for tonight.  Ready to hit the hay.  Even with the kids back to school today, I had so much to catch up on that I am exhausted!  Goodnight :)

Good morning Lori. I love the whisk idea,
very prim. Love the paint designs on the spoons too. I may just have to try the whisk idea, if you don't mind.

I love the painted spoons, I can't paint at all. The whisk idea is too cute. Stay cool here in sunny hot Florida.
