I'm working on more of these....

and found more spoons for these

And these....

Sweet Spring Flowers
Some outdoor smiles for you.
A little red sewing vignette.

One of my newest finds.

Isn't she beautiful?

Question: Would you leave her like she is?
Or paint her a lighter white and antique her?

Lovely white vignette.
I know I've shown this vignette form the store before,
but I just love it and wanted to share it again.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday,
and will go check out all these great memes.
Many thanks to all our hostesses.

You have beautiful treasures! I especially love the sewing items. I always look for old sewing notions at yard sales and thrift stores. I am enjoying in participating in my first REDnesday.

Thank you for the shots of the spring flowers! I need it, because it's snowing again right now! I love the sewing vignette. I always grab those old packs of seam binding and rickrack and pincushions when I see them. I just love the way they look sitting all together in a basket or box. Makes me happy!
Have a great REDnesday!

I LOVE the spoon/nest wall hanging!

So sweet.

I can't believe you have SPRING flowers already. My daffs just finally opened yesterday AND today they are 1/2 closed again.

It's been really cold at night down here in G.P.

Happy Wednesday!

I love your little bird nests that you're working on. Very cute!

The spring pictures are wonderful. It doesn't seem possible that anyone would be seeing things in bloom with the winter we've had on the east coast...lol It's coming, though :)

Have a great day!
