Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful Wednesday here in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. The sun was shinning, it was a perfect temperature and I got a lot done....PERFECT!!!!

My awesome find at Poor Richards Antique Sale In Spooner, Wisconsin a couple weeks ago

Anyway, while I was in Spooner a couple weeks ago, I picked up this old rusty tool/rake thing at Poor Richard's antique sale along with many other awesome goodies :) I LOVE Richard's Sales.....he has the most awesome finds there. That is where my daughter bought her bin I posted about a few posts back click here if you would like to see it...she only paid $195.00 for it which was a real steal!!!!!! When I saw this rake I knew I could do something cool with it. Well, this is what I came up with....a 4-season ornie hanger. I thought this piece was too nice to just have up for Fall so I made ornies for each season to hang off it so that way you can enjoy it all year round. I brought it to The Country Freckles today and Joni came up with another great idea for it. She sat a prairie doll right in the middle of it which turned it into a cool shelf also....the possibilities are endless!!!!!

Here is the Winter theme.....3 snowmen with a grungy hang tag that says
"Snow Flakes For Sale"

Here is the Spring theme...a bunny with flowers and a hang tag that says
"Welcome Spring Thyme"

Here is the Summer theme....3 crows and a watermelon with a hang tag that says
"Summer Thyme Crows"

Close up

And the Fall theme....PUMPKINS with a hang tag that says
"Field Pumpkins Pick Your Own"

I was very happy with the way this turned out. It looks a lot better in person and if you are into extreme would LOVE it!!!!!

I also finished up some of the cats I have been working on. Here are 3 of them in an antique sifter waiting for a new home. I LOVE these little cuties!!!! The sifter I also picked up on my travels to Spooner.....I LOVE THAT TOWN!!!!!

Last but now least, I made another church doll pocket but his time I didn't stitch the Ten Commendments on it...too much work so I simplified it a bit and stitched "Jesus Love Me" on each pocket!!!! But that doesn't mean the Ten Comandments are not VERY IMPORTANT I was just trying to save some time :) If you would like to see the Ten Commandment church doll I made click here. I got this pattern from Barefoot Primitives.

Here are the church dolls all tucked in

Here they are ready for a little girl to play with during church...awwwwwww can't you just see her little hands playing with them!!!

It folds in thirds and ties on the side so it is easy to take the dolls to church.

Here is a view of the back

My today's finished projects

So that is what I accomplished today. If you would like to share your Wednesday with us, go to Leslies blog and join in on the fun.

Have a BLESSED and Productive day....Rhonda

Rhonda~Those are fantastic!
You are so very creative! I found something similar about 6 months ago, I didn't know what to do with it, but I love your idea and believe that I will do the same.
Thank you for the idea!
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Wow! Wonderful projects! Great ornie hanger there. If I ever see something like that I will have to snap it up. The church dolls idea is great. I will have to keep that in mind. I have a granddaughter who might enjoy something like that.
