Butter churn and a great gift

I've had this butter churn for awhile (was bought at a thrift store for a few dollars ) and decided it needed a make-over. I was thinking about painting it black but then I seen one on-line somewhere that someone redid in mustard yellow and it looked really good, so I thought I would try that. I love the way it came out.
I did paint it black underneath the yellow and then sanded it down some so it would come through. Not it just needs a pip berry ring on top and it will be complete.
This is my "Pay it Forward" gift from Marie. It's a handmade dish cloth, isn't it cute. I've been wanting to try these for awhile and was going to make some for myself, but never got around to it, plus I can only crochet squares and they are Now I have one to try although it's so pretty that I don't know if I want to use Thank you Marie for the wonderful gift, hope you enjoy the one you receive as well.

Country Grapevine

When I went to my Mom's on Saturday we went to a country decor store down there called the Country Grapevine and I picked up a few goodies. I want to go back in a few weeks as there was a few other things I would like to get.
This mini flag is so cute, it is hanging our front right now.
This "Believe" sign was only $7.00.
A new towel that I now have hanging from my bowl rack in the living room.
Some pip berries stems.
This "Olde Crow" plate. Didn't fit where I wanted it to go, was too big. Will find another spot for it some where.

Goodies from Mom

Went to my Mom's on Saturday and while there we were going through her stuff looking for yard sale items (we are going have one next summer) and she gave me few items.
This little americana stool she found in the trash a few years ago and she exactly gave it me. I used it for awhile and gave it her and now she gave it back to Maybe I'll paint it this time around???
This star candle holder she got at the thrift store.
She also had this candle for many years. I used to have one like, but I burned it a few years back.

Little frames

Had these little frames for a few years and never used them, so they just sat in my Christmas/birthday gift box. Was going through it the other day and decided to make-over these guys.

Just painted them both black and sanded them down a bit. I was thinking of putting a prim saying on them, but I don't know what???
Any ideas ladies???
Or maybe some little mustard stars??
Or leave them like they are??
