I've done it again...I've fallen off from posting.  No reason other than I've been in a slump, probably a Winter heading into Spring slump.

Even my crafting has slowed down!  I did, however, get into my cottage twice this week!  It would have been more often except my back kicked out on Good Friday and I wasn't out of the tough pain until Wednesday or Thursday.  By then my plans for ship-lapping one bedroom were on hold til summer, as well as my plans for crafting up a storm.

I actually think it was God's way of telling me to quiet down, to stop mentally running on overdrive.  So I did...I've read four books so far, and that's okay.

I was able to spend all day out in my cottage today though; here are a few of the things I got done.

I made the roses a few years ago and decided to give them a try...I'm still on the fence about adding/not adding flowers, but for now, the roses aren't permanent.  

Here are a few pendants that I made earlier this month and that are now listed in my Etsy shop.

Oh thank heavens...I figured it out!  No idea how, but now I like the colors better.

Thankfully I wasn't obsessing about it...not like it's past my bedtime or anything.

Over and out!
Raise your hand're unable to change your blog design!!  Me either!!

For some reason, I'm unable to change my color scheme using the Design/Theme/Advanced settings and if I were an OCD sufferer, I'd be upset!

I'm upset.

It's going to bug me! 😨

Maple Sugaring Antique Print

Raise your hand know anything about this piece!

I sure don't, other than it comes from my husband's grandparents, having hung in their Vermont home for decades.

I think it's a photo that's slightly colorized, but one daughter thinks it may be a pencil drawing. It's pretty hard to tell, even looking at it up close. 

It is signed in pencil, entitled "Sugar Making In Ye Older Tyme" we think.  There is an artist's signature, but I can't really make it out.  It may be S.L. Blass or Blasi or Blair. The picture measures 13.5" x 11" and it's reeeaaalllly old.   

I tried looking up those names but found nothing.  

Any ideas?
