Project Time! ~Tray~

Everyone else is posting Tablescapes, Holiday Decorating, New Years Eve plans, menu, etc.  Me, a project!  A craft!

In my archives you will see where I went 'thrifting' and found a silver plate tray.  And promised to post more about that tray in the future. (Tray in the upper left.)

Thanksgiving 2008 I displayed my faux turkey, leaves and gourds in it.

 Christmas 2008 I displayed my bisque nativity in it.

 This year it has under gone a transformation.

Here you see my price tag. $2.48. And I think blue stickers were marked down that day.

You can see there are spots where the silver has come off and a little rust has set in.

Primed with what ever I had that needed to be used up.

Added the color I wanted and an additional coat...

Then added a couple of layers of Chalk paint.

I dropped some chalk paint on the edge. When I tried to clean it up, I got this effect. Loved it!!! Added it to the project. :-) Aren't mistakes great blessings!

Hey, Alabama won SEC Championship and is headed to the Nationals! Merry Christmas will have to wait until next year.

ROLL TIDE ROLL! One more week!

Christmas Day

New Camera!

Favorite Candy in Stocking...

Ed got a case of his favorite candy. It would not fit in his stocking.

Favorite people.

New camera works well and this new movie was watched... many times! Cute movie!

Turkey Breast Pot Roast Yum!

With potatoes and carrots!

Steamy green beans with almonds!

Our favorite rolls made from a secret recipe ;-)

Ed in his party hat that came out of his party cracker.

For dessert, our favorite! Vanilla ice cream with Martha Stewart's Hot Fudge Sauce. Oh yum! And only about 1000 calories!

The Cannon G11 does a pretty good job! Of course, I would like to think that the photographer had something to do with it. ;-)

I hope that everyone had a wonderful and Merry CHRISTmas!
