Ugly to Prim Makeover & Lucky Times 2

Good afternoon. I hope you are all enjoying the weather we are right now. Sunny and pleasant. Although we are getting to the point of REALLY needing rain. The crops are showing some stress. We were once told that we shouldn't pray for rain, but to pray for more while it is raining. I'm not sure about that!!

I wanted to share one of my recent GW finds. When I say it was ugly, I mean just that. It had glossy green and gold paint that was very hard to paint over. Some of the green even showed even with the black and navy over it. Wow, what good stuff they used!! Here is the before.


And here is the after. It is the perfect spot for my little pottery pieces.

I also wanted to show you how lucky I have been lately. I am the proud and excited winner of two giveaways. The first is from Carey at American Girl Primitives-N-Such. Thanks so much. I love it all.

Then along came Janene at Primitive Lifestyle and her wonderful giveaway. She really outdid herself on all that she sent. Wow!!! Thanks so much for the goodies. She is a fellow Ohioan. Gotta love that!!

I guess all I need to do now is buy a lottery ticket!!! LOL. Since I have been so blessed by gifts, I am getting together a giveaway of my own. Stay tuned for details. It will probably coincide with my 50th post which is coming up.

I changed my post picture. The corn in the front is our sweet corn patch. It met with a small problem this year. DH sprayed it for weeds just like he always does. Well, the chemical has been changed and he didn't know it. It has been stunted and we are hoping it will produce at least some corn.

Well, I need to get some supper ready. We have more ball games this evening. DD has her first tourney game and DS has an all-star tourney. Two different towns--same time. Gotta love it!!! I guess we are splitting up.

Thanks for taking time to stop by. It means so much that as busy as you are, you take time to read my ramblings. Take care and have a wonderful evening.
