and the winner is...

(Saying that reminds me of the Oscars)  Thank you all who left comments and were so sweet in your congratulations for my being published in the fun new book, Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase. 

What you really want to hear is who won the book giveaway.  The winner is Sarah.  She is a real sweetie and I have been reading her blog for awhile now.  So go and visit her, hopefully we'll be seeing some new pillowcase creations from her soon!

Last week I did some quick thrifting at my local shop.  My kids were with me and they love picking out a little something for themselves.  Nothing usually too interesting.  But I loove what I found!

This is a wooden tray with a nice wicker trime that I paid $3. for.  I think I will paint it and decoupage something on it.

My kids hate this clown!  But I love him!  Someone handpainted the plywood cutout.  I want to use it for my display.  Paid $3.

Thanks for looking at my photos!  And thanks again to all who visited my site during my book giveaway.  You are the best!

I LOVE the clown! He is great and so happy. Clowns have gotten a bad rap.
I can't wait to see your new display.
