Happy Spring, A Better Pickin' Season!

First of all...
Happy Spring Day to y'all!
It fills one with hope and wonderful things to come, doesn't it?
Sigh. It has been a long hard winter and I'm looking forward to spending some time outdoors.
I think my garden missed me and I'm looking forward to getting reacquainted with it.

It seems like I haven't been on here much. Lots happening here.
My shop needs some new merchandise listed to make it more exciting again.
Let me tell you, that is another reason the coming of spring is a blessing. 
It's a better pickin' season which makes for a better shop.
Now I do have some things hidden away here and there that are patiently waiting for me.
I'll be working on getting them listed so they can find new homes soon.

It's funny how I find things that I have completely forgotten about that I have previously picked.
Like these cool brass cow tags. I came across them stuffed in a bag on a shelf.
I immediately listed two of the five I had and they quickly sold.
They were bought by another blogger who makes some really cool upcycled items.

I'll probably list two more of the cow tags soon, but I've decided that I need/must keep one for myself. What I like is that these tags each have the old, rusty chain that actually went around the cow's neck which are harder to find these days. I have a few ideas on what and where I want my tag to go. Once I decide, I'll have to share.

Just yesterday, I had a sale for three rustic items which are going to CA. The customer emailed me her concerns on how I was going to package two pitchforks and a wheel. No problem. Actually, it will be a piece of cake. Way back when, I shipped a cast iron fireplace surround to CA. Well, I should say we as hubby had to build a wooden box for it. It was a really cool piece. That surround is one thing (out of many) that I really, really wish I had kept. It was salvaged out of an old home that was being torn down and had its own personal private history. What's funny is that the person who bought it had no clue what she wanted to do with it. She just had to have it. Can you relate? 

Well, time to get busy. So much to do and never a dull moment.
Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend!!!

Revisiting More Farmhouse Features

Hey y'all! It's that time again.
Time to go back and visit a couple of Farm Fresh Features of the past.

First, we have Dawn of Creative Cain Cabin.
It was so fun to feature her and her colorful log cabin.

Dawn sure has an eye for color and knows how to make it work.
Such a sweet style! Sigh.

Check out her feature here.

Check out her blog here.


And next we have Elizabeth of Blue Clear Sky.
Elizabeth knows how to bring a farm fresh style to her suburban home.

Her farm style reflects all things country and rustic.
Isn't it lovely?

Check out her feature here.

Check out her blog here.
(Her new blog name is Rustic Maple.)

Thanks for stoppin' by and checking out the features!

A Beautiful Day

It was a beautiful day.

And today is just as wonderful.
The sun is shining and the birds are beginning to sing.
It is warming up and the snow is melting. 
Time to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. 
I'm ready. Aren't you?

Eternal Spring Is In My Heart

I know that spring is officially here in 14 days.
I think someone forgot to give Mother Nature a kind reminder.

We awoke this morning to over 20" of freshly fallen snow. 
Shoveling paths for the dogs (and the poor, little birds) began at 6:30 a.m.

Snow drifts made art sculptures in the yard and it is all so pretty, but this much snow is causing problems in our area.
There are miles and miles of stranded motorists on the interstate so the National Guard has been called in. Bless them for their efforts in this time of need. We hope to stay inside for the day and stay as snug as bugs in a rug.

Winter is all around me, but eternal spring is in my heart.
Two more weeks.
Stay safe and warm!
