Farmhouse Pantry Goods ~

Sharing some photos of the boxes I painted yesterday,
and the finished spiced calico strawberries ~
my boxes came out SO old looking!
these will accompany me at the show on February 11th...
comb-painted and severely distressed,
and the taller heart boxes are a set of 3 ~ I call them Bride's Boxes.
the insides are washed with black paint then spiced...
the strawberries are filled with crushed walnut shells ~
love them piled into this old wood bowl.
such a pretty grouping!
(I want to keep them all)
Today I will be working with paperclay,
... and stitching on some small simple samplers.
Hoping you all have a beautiful wednesday!!!
blessings from the farm,
Lori
