New Items......

Here are two great black distressed roll top bread boxes that I just finished. For being older bread boxes they are in great shape. They have been painted black, edges sanded and then antiqued with brown. I also finished the two small heart boxes on top of the bread boxes, these would be great for a special little gift for Mom.
This is a vintage magazine holder that I painted white and then distressed. I have tied a beautiful piece of ribbon on the handle that has a gold edge, I added a vintage skelton key and an old earring for a great cottage look.

I painted these two great birdhouse for your front pourch, they are both in a rusty tin square can. The birdhouses are also rusty tin with a grape design painted on them. I have added a twisty vine and a REAL birdnest with wooded eggs. My son climbed up some of our trees to get the both birdnest for me, what a great son!
I am working on some great metal plates with a Thomas Kinkaide type cottage that I am painting on them, I will post pictures of these in a few days. They would of been done already but we went up to my daughter-in-laws family cabin in Island Park over the weekend, had a great time!

Bears, Bears, Bears.....

Finished up 50 bear magnets, after that many you really get tired of them! This is a new magnet design for this year. I will be starting my Halloween magnets this week. I have to start early because I want to take at least 500 or more to Swiss Days.

I don't have pictures of my sunflower items yet, I will get them posted in a few days.
It's getting yard sale time again!!! I went to an estate sale in South Weber Saturday and found these great teapots. The two big ones will end up being pumpkin candy dishes for Swiss Days. The tapered one I will add a light into the hole of the lid and paint something ???? on it.
If any of you need to clean out your garages, sheds, houses, barns, drop me an email at thecountryhollow@msn.com before you have your yard sale. I am always looking for items to paint on including wood furniture.
