my new Treasuries

For today I only have pictures of my new treasuries to share. I found these items in the sale section of our local Supermarket. Instead for 10€ each I got them for 10€ all together. At first I just bought the tea box. I've always wanted to have a tea box. For the chalk board and the board with the hooks (I will use it for kitchen towels) I went back to the store with my Mr..  Not that I need the Mr.'s permission to buy home decoration. But I just wanted to make sure that the items are also to his liking. 

My idea is to take the metal decoration out of the frames and exchange them with small cross stitched samplers. 
But since I am starting those samplers within my Crazy January Challenge 2012 it will take quite a while before I can share pictures of the finishing.

Unfortunately for now I don't have any new stitching to share. I have been under the weather for quite a while now and Saturday evening it finally turned into a fully grown flue. I feel like I got hit with a shovel, which makes stitching very difficult. I dug out my Tante Minna Sampler. It's stitched on 32ct linen and I thought those big crosses shouldn't be a problem even with a dizzy head, but I didn't get more than a few stitches done. I will try to occupy myself with something else or I just go back to sleep.
