My day off....

Hi Everyone!  I hope your week is going well.  Today was my day off and I didn't get quite as much done as I thought I would.  I did get the mowing completed but I didn't get the trimming done.  There's a lot of trimming to do here on the farm. 
 I worked on the order I got for the trio of paintings.  
I worked on a set of signs for a client.  
I picked up some lumber for the bench I'm working on for one of my co-workers.  I did the fun stuff like laundry and cleaning.  And I went to my parents home and mowed the yard for my them.  So I don't have a finished project to share with you.  I have a couple of finds to share instead.
 I drove by the building that has an ongoing garage sale.  And this frame caught my eye.  I turned around and picked it up for $3.  
It has this little plague on it that says Snow Bound  by Marion Gray Traver.  It's a great size for one of my wire and clip message centers.
 When I got home from mowing at my parents home, I got a phone call from my Uncle Bill.  He was letting me know he had been here and dropped off another Jenny Lind crib.
And three rails.  I only got pictures of two of them because I had already put one away when I remembered to get my camera out.  He rescued them from going to the landfill.  So they were free for me.  Have I said recently that I love free stuff?  Well I do!  Thanks Uncle Bill!  Now I need to get working on these orders so that I can get them completed, shipped, and have something to share with you.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. What are you going to do with the Jenny Lind cribs? Curious because we have one in our attic!

  2. You are one busy lady!!! I don't know how you do it all...
    But I love it~
