Just stuff and a winner!

Hi Bloggerettes!!  I took a thrift store discarded piece of wood and created another sign.  All I had left were enough rub on letters to come up with this....quite appropriate don't ya think?
I even added two old hinges for a little character.  I think I'll stain it a little to give it some age.

A few shots of some kitchen decorations...

A silver tray painted soft white....

Now for the winner of my 800th follower giveaway.
Random generator picked Jane from Mamie Janes!
Congratulations Jane, email me with your address and I'll send out your goodies right away. 
Also, Jane was one of my very first followers.  Her blog is wonderful and she comes up with the most amazing creations.  Be sure and stop by to say hello to her.

I'll be doing another giveaway soon, so don't give up.
