A New Sampler and Another Cabinet..........................







Good Thursday morning my friends!!!....I thought I'd share with you a new sampler I started...At this point it is 20 1/2 " by 16 1/2 ".....I have changed my mind about 10 times already so who knows what the theme will be...It will be an ongoing project inbetween orders and offerings on my Simple Goodes blog....The only thing that has been consistent in my mind is the colors...I haven't wavered from that...So who knows!!!

And then I have another furniture piece in my home to share with you today...This cabinet is on the left going into my kitchen....Once again I just painted, sanded, and stained it...Simple!!...I have 3 of these, so I will be showing the other two in other posts....This one houses some of my pottery collection...And this one was also purchased from Michael's years back...I haven't seen any since...If my memory serves me right I paid $8 a piece for them...I think they also were on clearance....I almost passed them by because I wasn't crazy about the chicken wire...How crazy is that????

Off to get some things done before I go back to pick up Luke from school...I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday...Enjoy this day God has given you!!!!~~hugs,Jen

Happy THURSDAY to you. I love the cabinet. Your potteery looks perfect in it. I am enjoying the close ups of your pieces.
It is great to show how you can buy a plain piece and make it your own.

Love your cabinet. Yes, Its to bad that Hobby Lobby isn't what it use to be. I have 2 in my area to shop from due to ajoining towns. Both have the sameold story.
Have you ever thought about doing a tutorial on finishing?(I don't remember there being one on the blog) I know you make it sound so easy but for us first times to finishing it would be a wonderful thing. You have a great talent.
Thanks for sharing your pictures, I love the inspirational factor. Have a great day and may you be blessed with a speedy needle on your sampler.
