LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!


I am beside myself with excitement over the great things I found this morning!!! I have been looking for an old cake cover to paint for ages and when I found this beauty I could have jumped for joy!!!! It has an acorn for a handle on top and acorns with leaves are embossed all around it. I already know what I am going to paint on it and can't wait to prime it and get started!!!


I found two great old pot lids, a pair a sweet baby shoes and an ice cream scoop (it will be a snowman!). The little wagon is in pretty sad shape but it had two wonderful wheels that I know I will be able to use some way or another. I am off to prime and paint on this beautiful April Fool's Day.

Isn't it amazing that such little things can make our day. I guess it's being content with life.
Have a wonderful time painting your new goodies.

Golly Bill, Martha! Hurry and get that cake cover painted...can't wait to see it. I painted one a while back with white leghorn chickens all the way around...but, it didn't have that neat acorn top! I'm really impatient to see how you build a snowman out of that ice cream scoop!
Have a day filled with blessings and do something to make a sweet memory!

Well, you've been busy while I've been away having computer problems!
But I've been painting too, Martha! Not objects d'art like you have! Just on paper! ;-)
Can't wait to see what you do with the cake cover! I know it will be something SO fun!
