My green primitive box and junk store finds!

Im still fairly new to primitive crafting, i mean, ive stitched for years, but the painting and building is still new and exciting, and well i get excited about it, lol! here is a box that was in my daughters room, it was pink and said princess on it, until i sat it in her window , then it became whitish pink and really bad looking so i painted it black, then green, distressed it and added a little prim label i made. . . i actually like it alot.

I hear others talk about junk store finds alot, and i have been in junk stores and second hand stores alot and never really found anything, my mom took me to the local goodwill today and i found two little items of interest, best part is i got them both for a little over $2.

the first as you can see is a mini crock jug, it was just cute, its only about 5in tall, then there is what im calling a homemade tobacco box. Its solid and quite heavy, has a little working drawer.

I put another pic of this on here because some time soon i plan on painting it and primin it up, i'll try to post a pic of it finished, i love stuff like that.
