An "Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends and followers.  Hope you are all well, if not please help yourself to some (((((hugs)))) if you think they might help.
Today is Friday   ...  that means its Oldie for Friday over at
Erika would love to see some of your past makes or posts.  Does not have to be a card just something that you think others would like to have another look at.  Remember some might never have seen any of your fantastic work before if the have just recently started Blogging or looking in on Blogs.
Here is mine:-

These are 3 little Chipboard Baskets from the Hobbycraft Shop when it opened in Dundee.
Cheap as Chips pained with equally as cheap emulsion paint.  I crackled them with PVA Glue, decorated with odd Roses that had been lying about and a few bits of foliage. 
They are good to pop maybe a pair of earrings or small piece of Jewellery into. 
Hazel and I sold lots of these at Craft Fairs.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for today`s visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

Tomorrow we are off to my friend Elaine`s daughters wedding.  We are all going, the whole family. If I can get some pictures I will let you see them sometime next week.   I keep forgetting to take my camera, having that does help!!!

Have a fantastic weekend
