Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

It is a beautiful spring day today and I am loving it. It's not "officially" spring but the sun is shining and the temps are in the 50's. Much better than the snow, freezing rain and rain we have gotten our share of this year. I am just thrilled to see the house filled with sunshine. It's a great way to brighten your mood and motivate you.

I wanted to share some pictures of the wonderful treasures I have received from fellow farm girls at MaryJane's Farm.



I received this wonderful tea cozy from Ann. It is just wonderful. She hosted our tea cozy swap and was a wonderful swap leader. Despite a small snag she figured things out and everyone was happy.









Ann also hosted the St. Patrick's day craft swap. This is the first craft I received from Kelley who happens to live just a couple of cities over from me. I love this adorable Irish flag with the yoyo shamrock.










Ann made this wonderful filet crochet shamrock. Isn't it gorgeous?!












Kelly from TN made these wonderful potholders. I never have enough of those and these are just so cute.










I have so enjoyed all the swaps that have been done at Mary Janes Farm. It has been such a thrill and a motivation to make more wonderful things to share with others. I don't know too many people who appreciate hand made things, although I think that is changing more and more. I love to create but usually don't have anyone to give it to, or share it with. Now I have found a whole group of wonderful ladies to share with.


I love the Better Homes and Gardens website. They always have so many wonderful ideas. I signed up to receive their emails and came across this wonderful sewing room.


Isn't it fabulous. I have a room in my basement that I need to clean all the junk out of and then I would love it to look like this.
You can look at all the creative storage ideas at The Perfect Sewing Room.



This is another great space. I just love all the special touches and organizational tricks. I will be working away on that room this spring and hope that it can look at least a little bit like the rooms above.

What kind of walls do you have downstair? are they paintable? If so, make sure they are light in color and have plenty of lights everywhere. Those overhead shop lights are fairly inexpensive (comparatively) and give you good work light. That's what makes or breaks a basement work shop. ;)

Hi Ruth!

I just wanted to stop by for a visit. I'm back from my blogging break now and need to catch up with all of my friends again. :-)
It looks like you've been busy!
