What a difference a couple days can make! We went from nice spring-like weather to COLD! It might get down to about 28 degrees tonight and "S____". I know it could still happen in April, but we've had enough for this year. The flowers are popping out and we sure don't want to look at any more of the white stuff.
I promised to get a few more pictures on from last weekend and so here we go. I got the old harness maker's bench in and it is SOOOO PRIM! It would look so great on a porch with a big fern sitting on the end.
My favorite is this old turkey feeder. Can't you just see it planted with red geraniums? I also like the old garden gate for a backdrop in a garden or on a porch.
This bench is hand-hewn and also very prim. It would make a great coffee table OR would also be perfect in a garden or on the porch.
Don't know if you can see this old rusty, metal basket. What a perfect planter this would be! The old white pedestal would make just the right stand for a fern or hanging plant.
Tonight it's back to the sewing machine! Another shop ordered a few dolls from me and I need more in my shop too, so guess what I'll be doing for awhile? My creative juices are flowing though and I can't wait to see the end results.
Last night was like a fairy tale! My husband won tickets to the Fox Theatre in Detroit to see "Celtic Woman" and it was beyond wonderful. We had VIP parking (the attendant even walked us across the street with an umbrella) and we had perfect seats in one of the suites. The theatre had a beautiful buffet set up for the suite-holders and we had a host bringing us drinks, desserts or anything else we wanted. If you ever get a chance to see this show, it is out of this world. After the show we went to Greektown to dinner and tried $20 in the slot machines - no luck (I was hoping to win enough for another load of furniture)! All in all, it was a wonderful night to remember.
My Gannon boy is spending the night tonight and going to work with me again tomorrow. It seems that Abbey and him have been taking turns while they are on spring break. What the heck? They are only kids once and I'm thrilled that they like to come spend time with me as much as they do. (Wonder when the next FIVE will want their turns!!??)
Hope you all snuggle in where it's warm tonight and spend some time with the ones you love!
Until next time...
