Welcome Spring!!!! And what's going on in my neck of the woods!


The older I get the more quickly time flies!
I'd always been told that but now I see how true it is.

Spring begins next week!!! EEEK! I simply can't believe it.

I so hope that life has been treating you well.
Things have been clipping along here in our old farmhouse
so I thought I'd share what's been happening around here.
The photo below is from a few years ago,
a sweet cardinal's nest in one of our shrubs.
The color of the eggs are beautiful!






And since my last post...
look at how big our precious grandson Owen is!!!
He's about to be three months old and
is such a happy baby...
he knows how much he is loved!






In other news ~
I'm not sure if you're on Facebook but I had the bright idea
to start a "Dawn's Studio De-Stash" group!

I've been going through EVERYTHING!!!
I thought I'd try to sell a few items as
my hoard had grown to GIANT proportions.

So....
why not sell to my friends?
If you'd like to pop over to Facebook and join,
I welcome you!
Simply request to join and I'll approve you.
I have no schedule but am constantly adding new things.

Here's a sampling of items that have already been sold:





Neat, huh?
I'm still adding items to my Etsy too.
I have even made a few new things!
A couple of altered bears wearing wonderful vintage
doll clothes...and lace lavender sachets!






And lastly I'm almost finished with the guest room!!
Yes, I have been adding and adding more things
to the point that I believe it's reached maximum capacity!









I found these wonderful cones at Hobby Lobby for half price.
Only 7.00 each!!!
I knew they'd be beautiful on either side of the framed lamb print
over the bed.










Then I found a furry pillow cover at Hobby Lobby for half off as well!
I love it...it seems to remind me of lamb's wool.






I found a beautiful bookcase at Walmart for only 80.00!
Searching all over the house,
I gathered tons of old, raggedy books and placed them inside.
I'm so pleased with it!
Of course it's still a work in progress.
It's so much fun placing items inside.








I'll hang the thankful sign over the door going into the bathroom soon.




More botanicals!!!
Again, half off at Hob Lob.
I want to put them in the wicker cone below ~






My last project will be to finish framing FIFTEEN
of these beautiful herbarium pages!
I will hang them in three rows of five
opposite of the sheep and bed wall!
I can see it in my mind's eye already.
I'm puttying the corners of Dollar Tree frames
and spraying them with Kilz.
I found some wonderful text scrapbooking papers to place inside
as a backdrop. I'll be sure to share when finished!





WHEW!!!
Sorry for such a humongous post but it's been awhile!

I hope you are doing so good
and want to wish you a very Happy Spring
dear friends!!!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

Hi Dawn, I sure do miss your posts, but yes, you are so right in saying that life brings changes to all of us. Your new grandson is precious, so happy for your growing family and love your new project with the guest room......it is beautiful and definitely has your fingerprints!!! Good luck with your destashing.......we all have that problem I'm afraid.....You are always inspiring my friend. Blessings, Linda

A lovely post Dawn. Such a cutie for you to spend time with too. AH yes time changes, priorities change and downsizing is a must !! My niece just had an 8lb little girl so I get to spoil here now and then. She's our family's youngest. My grandson just turned 14 so I am feeling the age. Stay motivated, you've accomplished a lot. Enjoy.
