What's everyone up to?  Any good crafty projects going?

I am refinishing our kitchen cupboards using rustoleum's new Cabinet Restorations system. It is super easy (no sanding or stripping!). I have the top cabinets done, so I'm almost halfway.... will post pics when I'm done.

Signs seem to be big right now in our etsy shop. Lots of weddings coming up!  Here's a bunch of goodies drying on a rack before getting distressed.

Would love to see pics if you have a spring project going~!

our 17 yr old daughter went to prom yesterday... love the color of her dress (kiwi? avocado green? kelly green?)... green is so hard but i think it was right on!  she was so nervous, mostly because she was on court... but they had fun...

more junk!

super cool old gas cans with great patinas!

check out my junk!

there's an amazing junkyard that i could dig through a couple times a week if i had the time... it is a blast!  i could go there every week and i probably would never get through it all in a year, it's that amazing... it's a sort of "organized chaos"...

yesterday i spent 4 hours there... i found an old amazing ammunition case, the coolest "americana" table, tons of old big cast iron spoons, ladles, forks, etc... an amazing old oil can (i think it could be the tin mans!), and a well drain thingy, and some blower tubes from silos...

the owner is 76 years old and smart as a whip... super nice, too... he only charged me $40 for my finds!  woot!!!
