A {Little} Project & A BIG Winner!

Today is Monday, and as promised I will be announcing the winner of the
{Mini} Book Ends Giveaway...but, I'm going to make you wait until the end of today's post.

I am posting an Altered Tray that constructed last week. 
(Mondays are for Mom is being pushed until Tuesday for this week.- Sorry Ma.)
I sanded an old, wooden tray that I found in my Grandma's house.

Then painted it in a high gloss black.
(I did sand it again after this, to distress it, but forgot to take a picture)
Then, the fun part...finding all the trinkets and treasures to fill it with.
A snip of my Granny McNaughton's lilac tree,my favourite. (the first tree I ever loved.)

A Skeleton Key from our farmhouse, a bottle of sand from my favourite place and

a desert rose & piece of petrified wood from my Grandma Burton.

September 1981- the month & year I was born...and my Sassafras Lass (puppy).
Finished Product...
I LOVED doing this and highly recommend it! 
I have already started shopping for a new {vintage} tray!

Now, onto the GIVEAWAY WINNER!!!
Congrats to LEIGH, who said:
"What a great mini and a great lesson for your nephews and niece to learn
about money and giving to those in need.
I would make a mini on our crazy, unexpected house renovations!"
