Two New Signs




Now that the addition is finished,
I have a lot of room to spread out
and paint.



I've finished two new signs 
and started two more.





Now I'd better get out and get some gardening done. 

Have a sweet day!

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. I'm surrounded my things to do that I truly enjoy . . . I wait all winter dreaming of getting my hands dirty in the garden, so doing any work outdoor is a pleasure. Our weather is beautiful today, the sun is shining and the lilacs are sending their smell scent all around the yard. Don't you just love Spring? Thank you for your kind words regarding my signs, I certain appreciate the boost in confidence.

    1. Good Morning Dear Friend and thank you for your sweet words, I appreciate them so much . . . I need all the encouragement I can get. It's one thing making things for yourself and that you like, but when you start thinking about selling them it becomes a bit scary.

  8. Your signs are very nice and I hope they sell well for you! It is good to see you creating again although I love reading about your garden things also. Do you think some day that you might get some chickens? I would like a coupe but Bob always said no and now I can't have them in a courtyard! LOL Have fun in your garden! Nancy

    1. That is what I'm going to try and do . . . I'm getting a few made and then I'm going to make a few barn quilts. When I have enough to have a sale . . . then I'm going to give it a try. It makes me nervous, but all of the positive feedback is a blessing and it is greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

    1. There was along time where you were not blogging, so I guess I have done a lot in the time frame. If it were not for blogging, I just might think that I lead a boring life. When I look back at my posts I feel very satisfied . . . I mostly stay home, but I don't sit around watching TV and eating Bonbons, LOL.

  24. I think your signs are great, I do like your choice of colour too, they are happy looking signs.
    I think you should perhaps offer them for sale, I'm sure folks would buy them.

    I hope you managed to get some gardening done.
    Always plenty to do.

    All the best Jan
