When the Sun Shines!

This spring has been dominated by rain, so much so that lots of outdoor projects have been put on hold, so when the sun shines, you:

Wash and sand on the camper! 

Nearly forget that you have to water the flowers outside, because it's been raining so much, watering isn't required! 
Work on orders and new brooch bouquets (to be listed soon.) 

Enjoy the May flowers! 

Prime and paint the camper white. I thought I would be content when I got her painted a solid color. Just to have her looking better for the time being, but no! I've debated about how I was going to paint the glamper for a long time. As I washed and scrubbed her down, the vision came to me. 

Here's a sneak peek! I've got one side painted with the design, but now it's raining again and forecasted everyday for the next week.
I practiced my set up for the Junk in the Trunk show last Saturday. I wanted an idea of how everything would be placed, before I got there. 
And then we got sunburned at the parking lot sale, but oh how gorgeous and nice it was to be outside and visiting with shoppers and fellow vendors! 
Several pieces of painted furniture and home decor items sold. I was tickled with the outcome of the market.
Cows have been worked and new babies discovered. 

It was an absolutely gorgeous 7 days of sunshine and I enjoyed ever minute of it! Thankfully the spring rains have eliminated the drought classification for almost all of Texas, but I'm ready for the next sunny day to paint outside again! 


  1. We got to open our pool last weekend! Loving the weather we've had for the past 5 days or so! Some beautiful creations you took with you!
    Stopping in from Life & Faith in Caneyhead.

  2. The sale looks fun, where was the sale at? I might have been close to to come enjoy it.

  3. Can't wait to see the design!!! How fun!
    Yep, lots of rain here too.


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
