Beautiful 1st Saturday of Spring....

It's been an absolutely beautiful first day of Spring here in NC. I hope you all are able to enjoy it. Hubby and I went up to Pilot Mountain today and it was such a nice drive. Signs of spring were everywhere! Didn't take my camera, but I should have.....

Took a few things up there for my Pilot Mountain Peddlers

Wish I would've taken a before picture. This was a pale aqua blue color. I sanded it first, painted it black, sanded it again and antiqued it. I also added the peg to the side and three pegs at the bottom that you can't see (after the picture is made smaller to fit). Turned out GREAT! Kinda wish I had somewhere to put it.
Also took more folk art flowers...

and a few more items that I didn't take pictures of. 
We stopped at a little cafe on the way back to have lunch. Don't remember the name, but it was pretty good. We just had sandwiches and fries, but enjoyed it. Everyone there was so friendly.


A few other goodies  that I have been working on this week...along with lots of bonnets, carrots, dolls and pillows.


Painted tulips were a special order. But I made extras to put on my web site.
They look fabulous in my pottery vase. Don't ya think? 

One of a kind Kitty is going to my web site.

Another special order...grungy chick
One of my first attempts at a mouse...this was made for a friend....

Etsy order....

Wish I could remember to take more pics. I am usually in such a hurry to get things finished, packed and shipped....I just forget.

There's a few more things I need to get finished today, so I'm gonna run for now.

Hi Shari! Happy Spring. All your goodies are adorable!!

We have had 6 days of unseasonably warm weather - just gorgeous!! Mother Nature was kind to us after the horrible rains and floods of last weekend.

Have a great week!

Hi Shari,
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for entering the Fred Give Away. I think to post a give away on your blog from any body else's blog you add it using your dashboard. I think you can add it as a link, like you have done your Etsy shop link. Just thought I would let you know with you saying you didn't know how to do it. Give it a go and see if it works. Looks like you have been one busy lady of late, have a rest this weekend and enjoy, Blessings, Karen

I'm so glad you had a beautiful first day of spring. We had snow on our first day and what's even crazier is the temp was 74 degrees the day before. Can you believe it?!

I love all the goodies you've been working on! Lots of neat things.

Happy Spring to you too~
