|Legs primed and ready to paint|
So my goal is to work on it this week...I do have the fabric and I know what I want to do with it so I just need to have time to work on it. I won't promise I'll finish it as my darling daughter will be home for a few days and we have her birthday to celebrate!
BUT, I did paint the angel ( she is residing in my bedroom with my "Love" vignette ),

one of the suitcase boxes (used it as the centerpiece for a wedding shower), the arched frame with metal scroll inside ( still need to finish that off), and worked on some burlap eggs to put in my little wire basket. ( Did I take a picture of that? No, of course I forgot!)
AND I did manage to go to Canton this time with my twin sis and Mother-in-law in tow. That place is huge and spending just a few hours there doesn't do it justice, but oh! the fun we had and the treasures we discovered. Plus, it keeps me wanting to go back for more. I got some fun things there - some to display and others to work on...like I need more projects but I can't seem to help myself. ha! I will do a post on my finds later.
The bathroom cabinet got its final coat of paint and now resides in the bathroom. It is perfect for the space. Now I am on the hunt for items to display in and on it. Ooo! Sounds like a trip to the thrift store! hahaha.
I am having to rethink the curtain and shower curtain in there. I love the burlap but my shower rod refuses to stay up. I could screw the rod into the wall but would have to go through the tile. I'm not sure I want to do that. Guess that means I'll have fun finding something else to use. ;o)
Outside, the dogwoods are blooming along with several other wildflowers plus we discovered the hawk has a nest in a pine tree by the pond. Way cool!
Just look at how gorgeous the dogwoods are:

Again, it's frustrating waiting until I'm back up at the farm to finish things up. There are just not enough hours in a weekend. Good thing I have things I can work on here in suburbia, so I'd better get busy. Time's awastin' and my project queue is agrowin'.Ta ta for now.
