Rise and Shine!

Good Morning All!! I sure wish it was a rise and shine morning...:) As with so many of us across the nation, it is our fourth day in a row of rain and cloudy skies. So since I can't get out and work in the yard or garden, I have been puttering here and there with projects in the house, and I also got this door crown painted.
I love painting folk art chickens......the more colorful the better....:)
This new design by Terrye French was perfect for this door crown. Since I find myself tweaking my home all the time, I love to do pieces that can be utilized in different areas. This looks fab over a doorway, but can also stand on its own in cabinets or in a shelf it!
Prayers and well wishes going out to my blogging friends that are suffering the effects of this awful weather. I pray that all of you are safe and doing well. Until next time........God Bless!

Happy Monday All!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! We spent time with our family on Saturday, so our actual Easter was rather quiet and restful. We have been so very busy, that having a day to just relax was the perfect way to celebrate the wonderful Easter time of renewal.
I don't have any photos to share, as I have been rather occupied with family these past few weeks, but I am looking forward to doing some new pieces very soon. It is a rainy day here today and will remain so for the next few days, so I am crossing my fingers to get some painting done...:)
Also on the to-do list is spring cleaning!! Spring has really taken its time getting here this year, so I did to get motivated and get it done before the really nice days come along that will pull my focus outside to even more projects I hope to accomplish this year.
I did enjoy spending some time out in the gardens Sunday, cleaning out beds, and preparing everything for new season. This is my favorite part of spring....watching all the wonderful flowers returning and beginning to bud.
So stay tuned as I will be sharing photos of my garden as I can, and more new painted items for my Etsy shop! Have a wonderful Monday......and as always God Bless!
