I spent last weekend with my good friends Amy and Lindsay. Amy lives in a part of Georgia that is chock full of antique stores. Yes, I said chock full of. I mean, seriously, they were everywhere. We only had one day with Amy, and had a lot on our agenda for that day, so we only went into one antique store...her favorite. It was pretty great. We tried on silly hats, laughed at creepy dolls, and scored some really great items. By far, my best find of the day was this...
I immediately fell in love, but I almost didn't buy it, which is crazy. Thankfully, Lindsay talked some sense into me, and reassured me that it was well worth the $22 I paid for it.
Okay, so this is my question for all of you...what would you do with the frame? I'm not crazy about the color of it and want to paint it. But what color? I was thinking a light brown. Or green. Or more of a creamy white. Ideas? Suggestions? Anyone who wants to come and paint it for me? All of this is welcome.

It's been a while since I've written in this space. 35 days to be exact. I didn't really intend to take such a long break, or even one at all. I can't even explain why I did. I just needed time away, I suppose. I've been contemplating a lot of things with my blog and shop. I haven't come to any conclusions, which isn't surprising, since I'm horribly indecisive.
In the last 35 days we have been enjoying this amazingly beautiful weather with lots of outside time and trips to the park, I've done a little bit of sewing for myself (which was long overdue), and I spent a much needed girls weekend with Lindsay and Amy. Scott & I are excited that Spring and warm weather are finally here. We are making plans for a little garden, and a few chickens. In a few weeks we will take a family vacation to our favorite little spot on earth, and I can not tell you how much we are looking forward to this. We have been taking little getaways here for years, and every time we arrive we say that we feel like we are home.
It's nice to put some words in this little space of mine again. I hope you have all been doing well. Please tell me, what have you been up to? What are you most looking forward to with the arrival of Spring?
