New Projects......

We finally had a day where I could work outside.  Almost all the snow is gone & green things are peeking up.  Our garden show is being held this weekend and it's suppose to rain -- not snow.  It'll be nice to wash all the yuck off the streets.

We also had an antique sale in town this weekend.  I ran by this afternoon and picked up a few things but most was glassware.  No one wants to schlep around those heavy pieces of furniture when they can sell a Majolica plate for $285. 

My new favorite color for Spring is pink.  I've never been much of a pink person but for some reason it's looking really good.  After deciding that my g'girls would love pink Easter baskets, I decided to get some spray paint.  Well, as you can see, the baskets turned out yummy.  Now I'm looking in the garage for anything I could paint pink -- not the car or lawnmower.  Maybe I'll paint my garden tiller.

This little girl garden statue is adorable.  She was on the back porch this winter & I couldn't bear seeing her so cold so I brought her into the kitchen.  I think her facial expression changed.  A past owner painted her eyes black but I'm afraid to mess with them.
I love this box.  Just wish I had taken a picture of the "before".  It was very rough with several colors of paint dotted around on it.  I used a trace of blue paint that was already on the box & worked it in with my stain.  Then I waxed it.  It really soaked up the wax. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
