Been Busy

Not much time for blogging...

I started to do some spring cleaning...

Which led to painting some walls...

Which led to painting the woodwork...

Which led to repainting the furniture...

Which led to rearranging it...

Which led to 'Am I done yet?'.

Don't know about the spring cleaning, but I am!

Too Many Days Of...

I've been experiencing too many days of...

Rain and rain and more rain...

Below average temps making me chilled to the bone...

Couped up in the house and feeling overwhelmed with too many projects...

Not getting outside to tend to my garden...

So what happens? This!

It ain't pretty!

Thank goodness I see some sunshine coming up over the horizon this morning.

And it just goes to show that if one just waits long gets all better!

Have a pickin' cool day,

Galvanized Dreamscape

How can one not like the word 'galvanized'? It brings up visions of the country, of times gone by, and of good sturdy vintage that helps get the work done at hand. Take a look at this masterpiece which was recently featured on the front page of Etsy, a selling venue for handmade, vintage, and supplies.

Galvanized Dreamscape says it quite nicely describing the look and feel of this collection featuring various artists and sellers. Must give credit to VintConditionStyle! She has a shop on Etsy which carries vintage clothing and accessories carefully selected for your modern life. Go check it out! Galvanized Dreamscape is her creation and caught the attention of Etsy. Congrats VintCondionStyle for making the front page and thank you so much for including our hay hook!

Oh...see the stool it is on? It's so fun and fabulous...all weathered and worn! I originally had this milk stool for sale on Etsy and decided that some pickin' cool pieces really need to stay with me. I love what I do!

A large antique ceiling tin! A gorgeous design with historical significance!

This large, white ceiling tin tile was dismantled from a bank in Indiana that dates back to the late 1800's/ early 1900’s.
