Spring wreath....

Hi Everyone!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and a great Easter.  I spent the weekend working on projects and getting ready for the fair at the end of the month.  And I have projects to share with you!  But first, I want to show you the flowers I got for my aunt Marge.  My parents had Marge and Uncle Bill up Saturday night for dessert to celebrate Aunt Marge's birthday.

 I just love daisy's.  They make me smile.  And don't you just love this color of purple?

So now onto one of the projects I finished.
 Now that my saw is fixed, I've been trying to get caught up on all the things I started working on before it quit working.  And this was one of them.  I made this little picket fence out of paint sticks and a piece of 1x2" board.  I cut the paint sticks into pickets and glued and nailed them to scrap pieces of 1x2" boards.  Then painted it white and added a bit of antique medium. 
 Then I added them to a grapevine wreath with green and cream pip berries.
 Then I added a couple of dragonflies and a butterfly that I painted.

I think it turned out kind of cute.  And I'm hanging it on my front door until the fair.  Now I just need to build a couple of wreath holders for the wreaths I've made.  Tomorrow is my day off and I have several benches to build so I'm hoping for a very productive day!  I hope you have a productive week!  Thanks for stopping by.
