Hop Into Spring Open House

Well I got my post cards sent out today! That was my main goal today. My spring open house is just over 2 wks away and I'm starting to feel a bit of a crunch. I still have boxes and unpriced things laying all over the floors at the shop. And my floor still needs cleaned!!! All the salt from the winter has left a nasty white haze on my dark wood floors. I figured why clean it, until the very end?!

I have a few things to finish up on my bunnies and they can move up to the shop, to find a new home. I hit the jackpot this weekend, while back home. My 4th grade teacher and a good friend of my mom's, is moving to TX. Their home is much smaller, so she thought of me. I got a harvest table and 4 chairs for 20. I'm going to paint the chairs black and then put them out at the shop. I also go a very old wood desk, that I was just telling Mark I wanted one like it for my sewing table, she only wanted 10 for that. She also gave me a cast iron bundt pan and a rabbit cake pan that her grandfather had made, very cool!! I got several crocks, a huge brown bowl, a masher, a darning thing (not sure of the name), lots of old wooden boxes, and an old barnwood stool. I'll post pics once I get the car unloaded. Haven't had the energy to do that yet. I thought getting my tonsils out would eliminate getting sick. Ohhh was I wrong!! I have a very dry, raspy throat, runny nose and plugged ears. Oh and Sunday nite I was visited by the flu fairy, I HATE throwing up!!!

If you are in the area The Rusty Nickel's Hop Into Spring Open House is April 1-3 and 8-10 Friday and Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-5.

Have a great day!! It's supposed to be in the 50's all week, I'm excited!
