On that note, one of the things I've been taking to all my fairs are my version of a message/picture board. Which I've shared with you here and here. On my lunch break today, I stopped by one of the antique/junk shops to see if he had any frames available..and this is what I walked away with.
I could make them, but why not recycle existing frames, if I can find them.
Some of the time the frames are very ornate, but this time they all have simple lines.
But I like the variety of shapes and sizes.
This one needs a bit of work but I couldn't pass up the price.
And this one is oak, but I have no problem painting it.
If it doesn't rain tonight, tomorrow my dad and I will be putting fertilizer on all the pastures. We won't be getting calves this year due to the high cattle prices, so instead we will be putting up hay. And since Spring arrived so early here, if the rain holds up, we should be have several good cuttings of hay.
