The Garden Expo in Madison was a great success this year. We went from sub-zero weather on Thursday morning (-12 F) to 40 and sun by Sunday afternoon. Spring Fever! Big, big crowds and happy people. Lots of my dedicated customers came and found something new to take home. I love seeing them all. I found homes for both of my paintings; hard to part with but they both left with people who fell in love. This is a photo of the first of the two which will be hanging in a porch. I think that's a perfect spot!

I tried my hand at painting last week. It's something I've thought about for a long time but never had the time or nerve to tackle. I had a couple vintage window screens taking up space in my shop and they looked like a good place to start. Here's my second attempt...I'll be taking it to the Garden Expo in Madison this weekend. I'm rather proud of it.

We've been busy this winter making new stuff for our collectors and faithful customers. I'm excited for the show season coming up! New birdhouses, flowers, signs & steel cutouts. Cats, dogs, polka dots and some very special one-of-a-kind BIG things...it has been so much fun in the shop. Blizzards rage outside but inside it is bright colors, flowers and whimsy. We're headed to the Garden Expo at the Alliant Center in Madison, Wisconsin next week and are looking forward to seeing some of our favorite customers there as well as stocking up on seeds and other gardening goodies for ourselves.
