I've been swamped with work so this little barscape was all I managed to get done this week.
As most of you know I am a Goodwill Junkie. I find so many great things there but Some of them are in rather garish colors. Not deterred though as Rustoleum is my friend :-)  I think we all know how to do this by now..
 Wash your piece and allow to dry-- very light coats of spray paint , to avoid drips. I dont usually do a coat of poly unless a piece looks dull to me when I've finished.  
  I dont paint anything we'll eat off of, only decorative pieces like the basket, bunny, jar and the tall piece in the back.
While I dont have an exact amount I would guess that all these pieces including the paint would be about 23.00., which is probably what just the basket cost, new.. Did I say yet today, I LOVE GOODWILL.. well I'm sayin'  it now.
I'm linking up to Marty's party~ ya'll stop in there and see all the other folks who are participating.
You'll see so many beautiful vignettes and meet alot of great folks you might want to follow, to see the pretties they'll create next.. I know thats always a favorite part of my tuesday.

and now on to the good part~! The winner of the $25.00 Target Gift Certificate and The French Stenciled Pillow is.....
Loui ~ Mountain Mermaid 
Since I have no clue how to do the generator I just let me neighbor's husband pull a name out of the bag and call me to say who it was. I did'nt even stay there while he did it lol...
I'll try to email Loui and notify her, otherwise I hope she stops in and gets a great surprise when she sees her name..
 Thank you to all who entered and hopefully we'll be doing another giveaway real soon. This was more fun for me than for ya'll..

Hugs and Happy Tuesday
