New Goodies and Some Americana Accents

my basket

Good morning everyone! It's a beautiful day here in IL. The sun is shining and that is a very good thing. I decided to do some sprucing yesterday and move things around in my house. I have a lot of projects that I will be sharing over the next few days too. Yesterday, I painted and sewed up my bolster pillow case. I will be showing off my bedroom plus some americana touches.
On Thursday I received my order from Bee Charmer Primitives. Everything looked great! I got this very nice gameboard that I decided to place on my coffee table for now. I could hang it up later though. Then I got my B. Franklin sign too. I'm really running out of room in my current house for things on the wall but yet I keep buying things. LOL! I made the basket in a class taught by a lady at my church. She does such a great job and knows how I like primitive things so I asked for no bows please. I worked on it for a few nights! Whew!! I have a whole new respect for basket makers. She finished it up for me and I think it looks great! Thanks Tracey!
