Springtime at Leola's.......

It's Monday, the sun is shinning, & all is right with the world.  Usually I work on Monday but Kelli was nice enough to work today (I know, it's getting to be a habit).  This is our week to get the shop ready for Spring Open House which starts this Friday.  What's really crazy is that we have flowers in our yards and buds on  our trees.  So often, we've had to deal with cold & snow when getting ready for open house.  This is great!


I've been working the last few days on pillows.  These are all linen and I'm so in love with the fabric.  I'm thinkin' about doing my porch in linen this summer.  It washes wonderfully and the more it wrinkles, the more comfy it gets.  Wondering how Mom would feel about having her picture on the front of a pillow, not to mention 1500 postcards that went out in the mail.

Also found these white McCoy and Hager pots that are wonderful.  There are probably 8 smaller ones too that are all this same kind of linen white.  Sometimes it's so hard to sell things but can't wait to see how they all look together.  My room at Leola's has been so dark through fall & winter but I've sold my dark pieces of furniture.  Now it's going to be really light & summery for a change.  Plus I've painted several things a bright green color.....love it!

Better get back to work.  Hoping it will get warm enough this afternoon to paint in the garage.  At least the wind has died down.......what's with the wind, anyway!!!!!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week and if you're going to be near Springfield this weekend, please come visit us.
