Shabby Tool Box

Hello Blog land!  I'm not going to say I'm back because I don't seem to keep my word.
Anyway here is my shabby tool box I just painted one coat with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White. I buy mine from Robyn Story at Adjectives in Winter Park.  I love it!

I have been wanting to do this for a long time.  Why I procrastinated I don't know.  It took me all of about 10 minutes!

It's just so cool.

As I have shown you before I have a thing for old platters.  I'm very particular about what I buy, I don't care if they are chipped or cracked if they have that wonderful glazing and pretty flowers. 

They usually have a date of some kind on the back.  Most are from around the 40's & 50's.
I usually get them for about $1.91 at the thrift, I won't pay more then $5.  That helps me keep my collection down.  Since I don't sell anymore it can be overwelming.

I did pick up the pretty cheese cover thing(forgot the name).  Paid $2.92 because it has cracks and chips!  The one next to it was "perfect" and was $24.24, you know which one I'm going for.

Never too many large pitchers!  See the chip in the spout?  $1.91!

Love hobnail!  These are from my friends daughters wedding in Montana.

Someone tell me to stop please.

I love drying roses and peonies.  Pick seems to do the best.

Thanks for visiting me!
