This and That...packin' up!

My mind has been scattered these last couple of weeks. I partially pack a box in one room, eat a cookie, check the kiln, sort the weaving tools to keep from storing them, pack the spices, sweep the front porch, finish a box in the laundry another cookie. So this post is a bit scattered as well!

I finally treated myself to one of Tracey Broome's houses...doesn't it look spectacular next to Dan Finnegan's tree with birds (he created this just before his imagination opened wide and released his fantastic flock of birds.)

Spring is officially here and the wisteria is blooming!  I think I trimmed it back at the wrong time a year ago...since this is the first time I have seen it bloom.  A sweet good bye.

AND I have been throwing pots.

My friend Lynette requested sheep themed garden stakes...I'm making more of these!  They were so fun to make.  Though made like tiles, the fact that some warped a bit was not a problem since they are now on posts and in her garden!

I've temporarily closed my Etsy shop.  I've priced and packed pots for the Retreat I'm vending at at Graves Mountain Lodge on the Saturday before our move, I've moved most of the other pots to Fredericksburg....the roof is being repaired one last time as I write this, the kiln is being moved next week and stored (unfortunately.)  Closing is scheduled for the 23rd, official packers and movers the 23rd and 24th.  We are almost there!!!

Awww, hello there my little friend, so glad you have a happy new home! We moved 5 times in 6 years, so I know what that cookie business is like. That's pretty much how I packed every house, cookies and bags of twizzlers. Good luck, hope all flows smoothly for you move!

Good luck getting ready for the big moving day. Hope all goes smoothly. Love those garden stakes!!

Thanks Ron! Today was the day that we moved the kiln into the storage shed. I'm sad. :( But at least I have LibertyTown!

Hello, Its so great to see Tracy's house there, and it does look fantastic with the tree bird.
Your garden stakes are very nice, what a boon that would be when I'm trying to figure out which thyme is which!
