Wooden Joys

Happy Sunday!  Well on Friday I got the itch to go find some new treasures and I have been working on them this weekend.  Here is the picture of my treasure hunt.  Remember these?

Well this is what I've gotten done so far!!

The little white picket fence turned from this! 

To this!!!  Yes, I kept with the red and the white polka dots. I just couldn't resist. lol Hmmmm now what to put in it??  It is now sitting on my newly refinished shelf in the family room.  Have to do more with it the shelf still.  Well I guess that can be a mini project :)

The cute wooden box with a rope handle.  Opps... just noticed the hand painted "Welcome" is really off center.  lol  Oh well!!

The cute trinket box that my daughter and I found.  Love how it turned out!!

This was just a finished piece that I made for my daughter.  I had made her one earlier saying This is how our story began.  Now this is the finished one as this happens to be their song that they've dedicated to each other.  It's rather cute :)

I'm continuing working on things so stay tuned!!  Have a fantastic day!!

Everything looks great. Don't worry about the welcome being offcentered. I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out. I need you to pack up your paints and come to my house for a while. :)
