So this is my mantra for the next few weeks: "LAUGH"! Isn't this garland just so sweet? I listed this last night....you can click HERE to check it out in more detail.
I was channeling my inner girlie girl yesterday with lots of bright fun color, polka dots, glass glitter and the cutest little baby picture.....was tempted to keep this one, but did I mention I am going on vacation this summer?

I absolutely love it when an idea pops into my head and I can visualize and produce the whole thing in one day. Doesn't happen very often, but it did yesterday... In between trips to the orthodontist and grocery store I managed to paint these vintage barrel staves. Can you tell I was daydreaming about our upcoming summer vaction (not until August-boohoo!)? My sisters, their families and my step Mom are renting a house on the Texas Coast where we will build sandcastles and eat Jumbo Gulf Shrimp (not necessarily in that order-lol) for a whole entire week...I am so looking forward to it....
These signs are listed on eBay right now. Click here and here or HERE to check them out.....

CUTE little chalboard...I have the perfect little artist's easel to put this on in my studio...
This one was for my son, who just happens to be camping with his Dad and the Boy Scouts this weekend (notice I am here posting pictures and NOT camping-lol), dated June 1948. He was amazed at how "old" this book was and that Scouts had actually been around that long, not to mention the fact that things he does now as a Scout, his Grandfather did too...
(I directly quote the eight year old)
These old handbooks also have some fantastic graphics and ads for Schwinn Bicycles, Kodak, Keds and Coca-Cola. Mom will be scanning those to add to her vintage collection for possible AA projects in the future....so many ideas, so little time....

And the other...can't decide which I like best -they are both wonderful. Also haven't decided exactly where it's going. My original plan was to hang the table top on the wall, but it also looks really good blocking the black hole that is a summertime fireplace, just the right size. So it may stay right there 'til Fall....
