Oh yea, oh yea, I was doing the happy dance when Dick and his brother, Bill, brought the potting bench into the shop! Just what the "doctor" ordered to give our gardening area a finished look. It was hard to let this go, I wanted it for my own back yard!
More handmades are making their way into the shop too. This long girl is wearing her Sunday best.
Little Wanda is ready to share her summer watermelon.
Her hair is made from old springs and she has a key nose.
Fannie is our old herb gatherer and she is a big one.
Her hair is curled rusty wire and she has a "spike" nose.
One lonely little Annie needs a home. She is wearing her patriotic best!
We have a couple more wreaths in too. One has a big old lady bug, and the other...
... has a chicken and eggs. (Sorry about the dark picture.)
There is also a metal rooster and
his hen.
Kari brought in these great bracelets. Her jewelry is so unique and the best part - one of a kind. More coming in today!
Another busy day is planned in the shop today. I have an old cupboard to paint, a window to redo, and set up for our Ladies Nite Out. After work I have to go make a pick-up of new goodies to put out tomorrow. I know it's supposed to rain tomorrow, but I hope you will bring your umbrellas and come to our town's special night. Guaranteed to be lots of fun! Don't forget - Ladies Nite Out, May 7th, 5-9 p.m.
Well, better get moving with my day. Hope you all have a great one!
Until next time...
