Spring at Leola's.......

It's almost that time again at the shop.......Spring Open House!  Isn't everyone so ready?  We've all been so busy.  I moved my area to give it a fresher look and it made such a difference.  Now all I have to do is take the spring merchandise in and get it out of my living room.

I spent the last couple of days painting a buffet for my sister Jean.  She bought it to resale but we decided it needed to be white.  Here's how it looked before......

It turned out being a lot more work then I thought when I took on the project.  Two of the drawers had veneer that was breaking off so I just pulled it off.  Here's how it turned out.  Looks so much better.


There are so many projects in my garage and workroom but if I don't get all of them done by open house, it will be nice to have the inventory.  Just want to make sure I have plenty of spring, garden & porch things.  The last few days have been crazy at the shop -- we are all so ready for spring.  Our great-niece, Jessica, who has worked with her mom, Dorlece, in the shop, has decided to take her own 1/2 space.  It is so cool & young.  I'll take pictures next time I go to Leola's. 

We've had such gorgeous weather lately (& most of the winter) & the garden centers are already advertising cool weather plants.  I can't stand it.  I'm going out tomorrow to get just a few things.  I think it's worth the risk.
