What I'm working on right now

Last year when DH and I were looking around the State...we love to just get in the car, choose a direction and just drive and "look" around the state if we see something or some place that looks interesting, we will stop and check it out. Well last year we ran across and old barn like Flea Market, kind of junky if you know what I mean, and it made my heart jump with kind of place to look for those special little treasure nobody else wants.
I found an old tin breadbox, that I have to admit looked like it had seen it's best days. I had a picture of it, but have misplaced it over the year. Computer has crashed 2 times, love the lightening in the south.
But anyways take my word for it, it was not good. DH used his sandblaster and got all of the rust of and most of the loose paint. I spray painted it white, trimmed it in red and painted my own design of a Hen and Rooster Couple on the front. I haven't finished it yet I plan to stencil BREAD on the top, hand shakes too much to just try and print it...ahhh old
When I finish it I will be listing in on EBay. I have a lot of luck and good followers on my Chicken stuff at Ebay.


  1. Awesome! Can't wait to see what all you come up with to sell....because sell my dear will do!

  2. I love the stencil-look, don't worry about the shaky handwriting, my hands shake BAD too and I have to take a lot of deep breaths and hold them even to stencil! But whatever you touch turns out so good, so yer breadbox will be no exception!!! I just love those pretty chickens.
