Always On The Lookout

I am always on the look out for things I can use to display or cover with stitching projects.
Katy and I went to West's Rangers Station yesterday.
It is an old Forest Rangers Station that sells stuff. 
Can't say they are antiques but, it is stuff.  
I picked up this old wooden bread bowl.  
I have coveted some of the ones I have seen on other blogs.
 I cleaned everything with Murphy's Oil Soap.
Great display for washing machine.  LOL
 This is a small cedar box, tourist rememberance from Eagle River, WI.
It's about 4"x6".
Can't you picture a little something on top?

 I think it would be perfect for scissors.  
 I think this must be an old cigar box.  
It is in really good shape. 
 I didn't measure it but, I think it is about 6"x10".
It has a nice flat top, perfect for a stitched piece.  
 I have not had a lot of time to stitch.
The company left on Friday and we went bumming yesterday.
I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning.
The next two weekends may be really busy too.  
The summer has flown by.  
I did finish the socks.
I have been working on Freedom House Button Sampler by Homespun Elegance.  
Hope you had a good weekend and had some stitching time.  
Thanks for the great comments. 
My sister loved the basket.
It was a huge surprise especially, since it was sent in a rather large box. 
Have a wonderful week and 
Keep on Stitching.
