Welcome Spring

I took a look at some of the trees we planted last fall to see if they survived the transplanting. I was happy to see some buds on them. We rode the 4-wheeler down to the old house and saw all the work we have to do down there to clean up the fallen trees and branches. We are going to have a big slash pile to burn in a couple weeks. Anxious for mild weather so the outside work can begin.

Where have all the elk gone? I haven't seen the herd on or near the property for a couple weeks. Part of the problem is daylight savings time. Part of it is I've been leaving for work at 4:30 am. We see signs that they are still on the move further down the road but I miss them.

Not a total bust.

This is the second time I've had my window busted out on a trip to the antique show. They didn't get anything but a couple of magazines and my reading glasses. I had fun anyway and I did enjoy walking the aisles at EXPO. I found fun things at Target and IKEA for Easter and I saw a chick flick. Not a bad weekend considering.

I was going to wait until I found the next two books in paperback so they would match the first book for a nice set. I couldn't wait to start book two. So I got them now. Tomorrow I read!

At the antique show I found a few fun items. The funnel for the Christmas trees. That wood box is nice. I'm anxious to use the chick chocolate mold. Silver items to resell at our shows and a wood spool made in France. I think I will wrap some old lace around it.

I was on a mission to find some nice old photos of young women. For a future craft project.

I really love old postcards. Easter was everywhere at this show. The holder was one of the things I got at the D.I. thrift store. I also got a nice little shelf. No picture of it yet.

I love unpacking it all and looking it over when I get home. A lot of times there is a theme. I have been leaning towards silver, wood and cream. Looks good all together. The Santa will be a big hit at the holiday show. The junking season has officially begun.
