Dust Bunnies


Sunday I needed to finish up my bunnies
for the show.
I only made a few.
Procrastination is a word 
in my vocabulary lately.
At the first of the year I had every
intention of making lots of bunnies....
P R O C R A S T I N A T I O N 
should be my word for the year.  


Here is the one bunny I managed to finish.
Actually made two.
His every day look.


Now he is sporting his Spring look.


His Autumn look.


His Winter look when he gets cold.

I spent my Entire Sunday working on these.
except for laundry.
Dinner was in the crock pot.
The dust bunnies will stay another week,
since no cleaning was accomplished.

I took this week off to help Bob with the new store.
Monday I spent the entire day cleaning
our huge cabinet that will reside at the front door,
This will hold some architectural and industrial,
and whatever will fit in it.
Yesterday I painted some squares 
that Bob cut out.
These will be turned into scrabble tiles for the wall.
On our way now to do more.

Do you ever procrastinate?

Dust Bunny Blessings To All!

March CupbpardScape


Happy Saturday all!

The new store is coming along great!
We spent yesterday cleaning and started
a few vignettes.
We are going with a nautical theme 
for the back half since we are along the river.
We have mixed in a prim cabinet, metal,
a map and vintage furniture.
Still need to add some fillers.
Once we get this area done I will show some pics.


Today we will be back at it.

Thursday a few counties Northwest of us,
four tornadoes touched down.
70 homes and business' lost.
Please say a wee prayer for those folks. 
We had rain mostly yesterday, 
but then a bit more snow. 


For this CupboardScape
I wanted it to be
light and airy.
I will let the pics tell the story.
Hope you enjoy!














Hope you all have a great weekend!

Spring Awakening Blessings To All!

Try Try Try


And try again.
Happy Wednesday everyone.
These past two days has been a treat for me.
Along the river now are golden eyed ducks.
Cute black and white divers with gold eyes.
They come down from Canada each year for a bit.

My post name is fitting today because
I did have to try and try again to finish
this latest hook.
I had thought it was complete...


But I was not happy with the colors I chose
for the outline of the bunny.
I felt the white was too stark.
So try again.


I took out the white and added tan.
Now the outline blended into the bunny.
So try again.


Next I chose this blue.
This ring of sky I did not like either.
So try again.


I finally went with the same blue
that you see to the left of the tail.



It may look like the sames blues, but trust me 
they were two different colors.
Now I just have to add a backing for this new mat.
This one is also for sale.

Sometimes you just have to try try try 
and try again.

Do you ever work on something that just
does not look right, so you try again?
It happens to me.

Try and Try Blessings To All!

SPRING 2019

In honor of Winter's soon departure,
I wanted to feature a few of my

Do you have any whites you decorate with?

Do you hate Daylight Savings Time as much as I do?

Using Up Leftovers


Well friends the weekend is almost here.
Wish it was Friday...but have another day.


I finished up my second house.
Made it so I could hang it.
It will be featured in my 
CupboardScape this month.


A blue back and wire for a hanger.
I should have pressed this.


I used up leftover worms 
to create this candle mat.
A spring flower.


The back of this one is a gray wool.
This mat is for sale.
Again I need to press.

I have exciting news to share.
Bob and I are close to opening a new store.
This one will feature products
that are industrial, architectural,
signage, vintage modern and
anything guy related.
Our new store will be called 
"The Urban Garage"
Bob has been working since December
getting the building ready.
He completely remodeled it.
New wood floor, industrial lighting,
new bathroom and walls.
We hope to open next month.
Will show pics once we get merchandise in
and decorated.
We have so many ideas.
Totally not primitive,
but a definitive store to bring in the
younger clientele.
We may be old, but we know the trends.
For those that follow me who live nearby,
we are not closing our antique store.
Back Porch Antiques is still our baby.
The new store will be across from our parking lot.
CANNOT WAIT!

Hope everyone has a great day!
We are ever so closer to Spring.
W O O   H O O!

Read A Book Month

March is Read A Book Month.
In honor of this,
Bob and I decided to create
a mini doctor's library for our store window
this month.


Complete with books, medicine bottles
 and a ladder.


We put back in our fireplace
and added medical items.


I can imagine a doctor sitting
in his rocking chair reading a book
by the fire.


With his medical pieces nearby.


Also putting on his favorite record.

This month I want to finish reading the 
1912 Titanic book.
It was a book about the survivors account
of the famous ship sinking.
I started reading this book in 2012...
and found it very interesting.
Like there was a fire on board 
in the boiler room when they left port.
The coal which was added caught on fire.
If the ship did not sink from the iceberg...
it may have sunk because of this fire.
One will never know.
Such a tragic event.
Now where did I put that book....

Do you like to read?

Crimson Ruby Cardinal And Red

Morning friends.
So glad it is Friday.
Been a busy week at work.
My final Valentine's post is simply
just about the color red.
Hope you enjoy!












Tomorrow we have a memorial for Bob's aunt.
She passed a week ago and the family
decided not to have a funeral, 
but a memorial to her life.

Sunday will be staying home.

Any big plans for your weekend?

All That Is Red Blessings To All!
