Pineapple and Fly Screen

Hello from sunny warm Ohio. I haven't been able to say that for quite a while. It is so nice today and tomorrow is to be better. Yeah. I just have a few minutes and wanted to post a couple of redos. You can see the before pics in my last post. I painted and gel stained the pineapple. Looks so much better. I made my fly screen as well. I just love it. Now I can be like all of you who have one!!!! Finally, I made a pantry cake. I had that really neat German mold to make it in. Well, the star doesn't really show up but the shape and size are good. I'm fairly happy with it. Do those of you who make them roll them in spices while they are still a little damp or wait till they dry all the way? I waited, but wasn't sure. The cutting board they are on is also a make over. I just bought another today at a garage sale. Can't pass them up.

I also wanted to show you my Primitive kitty, JoJo. She took a minute to pose in the Primitive box out on my porch. She must be trying to tell me I need to get things on the porch arranged now that it is nice.

Hope you all have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Love it!!! If you wouldn't have showed us I would have never thought they were redo's...but from a country store. Great job Melissa:)

  2. Melissa,

    Wow..I really love everything you made over...that pineapple is my absolute favorite...I'm really loving pineapples! Love that screen too! Great job...well done!


  3. That pineapple turned out perfectly prim. Your fly screen cover is GREAT and I wouldn't pass up those cutting boards either. I am so addicted to cutting boards and now gameboards. Enjoy the weather tomorrow... I know that I am going to : )

    Love your new blog look!!

  4. Melissa everything turned out great. I love the prim kitty. It was nice here in VA today and tomoorw is also supposed to be nice. I love the weather but hate the pollen. :)


  5. Thank you for your kind thoughts. Dianntha
