Blessings Always

The first day of spring is always the sweetest!
 

There are so many things to celebrate including longer days and fresh air.  Yay.... winter brings out the doldrums in all of us, and now everyone is feeling cheerier.   My momma is certainly doing much better with the longer days, so that is one of the biggest blessings.   I am hoping I can get her into the gardens again this year. 
 
We still have a good snow pack but this week is forecast to be quite a bit warmer.  With a little luck the snow will be gone by week's end.   I started the week and my spring by hanging some dollies out to age on the clothesline.   This is the time of year I shift my creating into high gear, although it has been an extremely productive couple of weeks.  Will photo soon...
 
Not only do I have many many dolls in the works, but Matt has a production line of whirligigs almost finished.  It's always good if he can keep himself busy....   And spring cleaning is in full force, finally!  I am taking my house back, a little at a time! 
 
It will be an interesting week here, with grandboys staying for eight days.  We drove them back home to get ready for school early this am before the sunrise.  Ha.... I have to say I rather embrace the quietness of our lives, and the bliss of getting up and following my whims all day.  I do not miss the school schedule one bit.  Four more school mornings.......
 
So more dolls waiting to be stuffed but thinking how nice to greet spring again.   Have a blessed one my friends!

Deerfield Spring Sampler

What a wonderful show we had! 
 


It was a tremendous show for us again this year and I have so many people to thank.... I am extremely greatful for everyone who made it to the show and I do hope you all will cherish the things you purchased for many many years. 
 
It is always the best experience to create one of a kind items for our collectors, and we work hard to put on a first class showing for all of you.  This year's creations mean even more to me because I have done so many of them under the watchful eye of my mom..... It has made our nights so much more pleasant.   
 
And during the crunch time right before the show I find that is when the magic happens!  It is so nice when the marriage of unfinished objects turns into something really sweet, like my little bee girl...

 
or my other little bee girl.... she was fun!
 
 
the little yellow mohair chickies made everyone smile, and they flew the coop right away.
 

 
I've had this basket forever, and bunny was created for it.  He looks right at home.

 
a large bottle doll angel..  a newer item, and fun to make. 


 
I enjoy working with an assortment of materials.... keeps it interesting and fun.

 
One of my treasured baskets.... I do not usually part with my collection, but am comforted knowing it went home with a dear lady.

 
Some Spanish moss and greenery softened things up a bit...
 
 
a crowded table before the doors opened, but it was only that way for a few moments....

 
and so....

 
until we do it again......  hope that was fun for you!
