HALLOWEEN BOX AND JUNKIN'

 Hello blog readers!  I have finished out the Blackbird Designs, Casting A Spell Halloween Box! 

 I just have some missing thumb from a mishap with a razor knife. It got the best of me.... Don't worry I did not bleed on the stitching.  I had a get time stitching this box. I did use the called for 30 count Confederate Gray by WDW linen. I also used the called for colors of hand dyed floss. You will need 2 skeins of the Espresso Bean and Dark Chocolate by Gentle Arts to stitch these designs.  It was also a quick stitch for me. Now to remember where to put it till Halloween...

If you remember a while back in a post I was looking for metal trivets. I was having a hard time finding one that were iron. I hit a jackpot Sunday. Hubby and I was in another town close to where we live. I saw a sign for an antique store and flea market.  Of course, I yelled, Turn Around!!! After much grumbling from Hubby, we did turn around and walked around looking. I came out with the items above!  I love the trivet tile with the keys around it. I can see a Halloween design covering the tile. My imagination is seeing needle punch on the trivets. I am also seeing maybe, a needle punch chick for the chicken feeder. . The 2 funnels might get some birds to use them as a perch. My little haul was not bad priced. I did pay the most for the chick feeder, it was 5.00. All the other items were within the 1.50 to 2.50 each range. I first picked up an iron trivet from a booth that was marked $12.00. After I found these, I took that little one back to it's booth in a hurry... hahaha
I'm still stitching away on The Santa Village. Not much to show there. I did start another new stitching project. I will show it this week. 
I need to close for now, I need to call a stitching friend to make a date for lunch. She will be passing through my town next week from south Alabama.  I'm so excited!!! 
Till Later.........
