Whatcha Working On Wednesday

Hey Ladies! I'm back and I would like to say I'm sorry I haven't been posting! I am just so tired of winter and being stuck inside! Too much snow and ice....I hate it! The economy slow down means no extra money to spend. It just all becomes so overwhelming sometimes. Is this happening with any of you?

Well, on to better things. I did get a few things done for WWW. So here they are.

I used this box at Christmas time to hold gingerbread men. It has a ginger label on the other side. But I wanted to keep using it so I found another label for the other side. I love sheep so I thought this would be cute. I really like it!

I finally got my bread box painted, that matches my canisters. I just love how it looks and it is huge! It holds a lot of goodies!

I found this rocking chair at the local Salvation Army store on an outing with Ellen and it was just the funniest thing trying to get it to fit in my Honda! One lady walked by laughing and said "Been there done that!" We could not stop laughing! But, I got it in and I just love it! It was only 15.00.....for oak? Yes! A great buy! I really like it painted black.

Those are my projects for now. If you want to see more go on over and see Leslie at My Country Home.

On a personal note, I want to thank Donna for stopping by my blog! Mom really misses having you and Harold for neighbors! I'm glad to hear things are good and look forward to hearing more from you! You never know who your gonna run into on Blogger! I love it!

Well, that's all I got for you today! I am working on some stitcheries and hope to be able to finish them soon. Thanks for sticking with me and I will try to get on here more often! You girls are the best and I love each and everyone of you! Big Hugs! ~Beth~

Hi Beth -- I think everyone s feeling a little cabin fever -- esp you all who have really gotten a bad dose of winter. Here in SE PA, we just got our first real snowfall of about 3 inches last nite, and everyone is in a panic over 3 inches. And , yes, the economy has everyone nervous and depressed. Hang in there. I love all of your goodies -- esp that chair! I have a honda also, and it is always a traet squeeeeezing in my goodies, but when there's a will, there's a way!

Bren said...

Beth, Love all your pics, the chair looks Great, and a n awesome buy. I'm right there with you on the bad weather thing, I've had enough. So, vacation was much needed for me.
Hope you have a Great day!
Hugs, Bren

Jenn said...

Hi Beth!!
I love your boxes AND your labels! I really should get some eh? Maybe Ill join Janene and paper a room, HA - that girl is TOO funny!

PC said...

Love your box! Thanks for sharing such a creative idea.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

I love the projects you have been working on! Your bread box is beautiful, and so is your rocking chair~ and what a great deal you got on the chair! :) That is a clever idea to turn the black box around and put a different label on that side! That gives me an idea of how to change something, too! :)

I love your blog! :) Have a beautiful day!

I love all of your redos and that chair was a steal. It looks wonderful in black. I agree with Terry, I think we are all anxious for spring this year. I know here in Mi. it's been an especially cold winter. Hang in there, kiddo.

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

Boy did you get a deal on that rocker!Looks fab painted black like that! Spring is right around the corner......I PROMISE!
Chin up !!

ceekay said...

Your projects are great and I love the little rocker, especially in black!

Susan said...

Your labels look nice on the boxes and your canisters. I'm patiently waiting on my canister labels to come:o]Love the rocking chair, too.

Tomatoe Creek Prims said...

Hi Beth,
So glad to see you back:0
What a find on the rocker, I wish we had a Salvation Army Store around here all we have is the GW.

You also have given me an idea about a blue box that I have stuck away in the closet...thanks! Love what you did to yours.

Back in the Day said...

The rocker looks great painted black! What a great deal! The bread box turned out great too!

Linda said...

Hi Beth,

I think cabnin fever and the economy are getting to all of us so we have to stick together and keep our spirits up!! So here's me being a cheerleader for you - WOW GIRL - great job on the breadbox! I love it - BUT I love the rocker even more - that is one heck of a good buy! YOu done good! Go Beth go!!

hehehe - feel better yet? You really don't want to see me jumping up and down with my 'pom poms" shaking!

big city prims said...

Beth, ask me how much I love Hondas and I will go on forever! It is the only car I have ever bought. Tell your DH that I am driving a 1998 Civic with 140,000 (yes, that is 140K)and I will continue to drive it until it falls apart, which may be in the next decade sometime! I love this car!! (except when I'm squeeeeeezing in my TS goodies LOL)No other car is so dependable. When this one turns up its toes, I want a FIT, but they are hard to find. I like them. Will need to wait until the economy turns around -- the Civic was paid off years ago.

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

Beth, glad you are back..:) love the it!!!!love the tags too..have a good one:)

jen said...

Great projects. That rocker is fabulous!!


Katy said...

OH I love each thing! The chair was a great find and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bread box! GORGEOUS!!!! I hope you are having a wonderful week Beth...and I am with you on the feeling blah about winter! :( I am ready for Spring! :)

JenW!~ said...

Love the boxes and the labels. I need to get DH to make me a couple of boxes like that.

Kath said...

Hi Beth-happy to see ya :)
Well, I LOVE that rocker! What a deal!
...and your breadbox turned out great!
clever idea with that little 'sheep' box!
I love sheep too!

Have a great day!

Shari said...

I love your black rocking chair. I passed one up a while back and now I could kick myself.....




Just love that rocking chair...It's so much fun finding a deal and getting it home and a good laugh later.

Simply adore the canister set you did.



Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

Oh I am really slobberin over that rocking chair. I found two matching chairs at the thrift last fall and painted them black. They insist you send their sister back to them! LOL


Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

And yes, I'm feeling the stress here too though I keep trying to stay focused on the positive. You just keep right on stitching and creating and keep your mind busy thinking on good things. It's good therapy.

Blessings, Lea

Terry said...

Beth - Everything looks great, and I love that rocker.
You're are definitely not the only one with cabin fever. I haven't posted for a while either. I always have a tough time in Feb. It feels longer than Jan. to me. Plus, this flu crud I've been dealing with came back once again. Arhggg!!!
Hope you feel better soon.
Hugs back at ya!

Anonymous said...

Love the rocking chair that you got at the Salvation Army store!! Also love the bread box...I want to get some labels as I love what everyone is doing with them.
I'm so ready for Spring...I've heard that where I live in Ohio, we are going to have temps in the high 40's to low 50's starting this weekend and into next week. Yeah...I so done with all this snow!

Rue said...

Hi Beth :)

Yes, I think we are all feeling the crunch. I want to buy a new couch, but money is tight right now, so it'll have to wait. Besides.... I don't know if it would fit between the boxes LOL

Your projects turned out really cute!

Big hugs for you!

I know exactly how you feel. We don't get that much snow but had a lot for around here. followed by rain and very low sales. It really dampered my spirits and am just now popping out of it.

I LOVE your projects. They would fit right in here and infact I have a bread box I think needs a redo and I will follow your lead on that one. I know it will be wonderful now. Thank you and I will be back.
What I am working on is a few bunnies and hope to finished in time to take pictures today.
