So I haven't been to The Candle Shed for 4 days or so and needed to take some things in there and see what fun things Piper dreamed up while I was gone. This birdhouse was sitting on the corner of the counter. Isn't it just the cutest thing!!! I tell ya, she just gets better and better on ideas and painting. She said she has 8 more sitting at home to finish painting. If 6 months ago, I would have said, Piper, by September you will be knee deep in painting birdhouses, she would have said, WHAT?????
I don't think she ever knew how popular her birdhouses would become. She was even featured in the local newspaper!
Piper also asked me if I wanted to take a bunch of stuff to a show in LeClaire, IA the weekend of October 10th & 11th. At first I thought, noooooo, but the more and more I thought about it, I started warming up to the idea. Now I just have to revvv up the engines and get a bunch of stuff made. So that's what I am doing... I will show ya stuff as I go along. This is going to be a push, cuz I don't have much stuff at this point, but I also have 2 weeks..... so I might not be blogging alot!!
Gotta go!!! Boy, am I glad it is supposed to be raining for the next few days. That will help keep me chained to my room, cutting glass!!! If you get a chance, check out Grasshoppers, LeClaire, IA. I guess that's where we are going to set up!!!
