Sunny Day On The Farm




It was so nice outside today and the winds have finally settled down some. Yesterday Oklahoma was ablaze with fires. Many folks lost there homes, barns, and outbuildings. The firefighters worked endlessly trying to gain control. We were very fortunate not to have any near our place.

This coming week they say temperatures are to reach near 90 and with winds coming again they are asking folks with tall grass to get it mowed down as a precaution. Everything is so dry it only takes a small spark and before you know it so much damage.

We are sure praying for rain! Well this afternoon after running a few errands I gathered up some of my thrift store finds and my paints and brushes and spent a few hours outside giving them a coat of paint.







They do look so much better painted. I just need to add a lil' wax to them and then they will be finished and ready to put in our booth.



I tried my hand at making a stuffed bunny and a few muslin eggs. The poor lil' bunny has a square nose guess I'll have to try to do a little better on the next ones!

Tomorrow after church I'm planning on more time spent on the porch painting a few signs and benches. It's suppose to be another sunny day just hope the wind isn't blowing too hard.

Hope each of you are enjoying your weekend and enjoying a little bit of sunshine!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Ginger your wooden pieces look great painted. Hard to believe that you are having such warm weather already! Prayers lifted for the ones who have lost because of the fires. I can't even imagine. Praying it stays away from you.

You are busy! Your bunny is cute. It and your painted goodies will be great additions to your booth. I have a room full of stuff in the basement that I need to get painted up. I would like to take it to our craft show. I just need to find the time!

Have a great day! I do pray you get rain. We are foretasted to get some - or snow - tonight.

Your bowls look great, and I think your bunny is cute even with the square nose. :) I have a bunch of bowls I'd like to paint, but for some reason I'm having a hard time painting over the wood. I grew up with the thought that you should never paint wood. lol. I'll get over it. :)

We've had so much rain recently. Wish I could send some to you all.
90° temps. sound wonderful, it's back in the low 40's here and all gloomy with clouds.
Enjoy the weather and hope the winds don't bring you any troubles.

I cannot imagine temps that high already, I would be happy with 60 degress, lol. Lots of nice wood products. I need to clean up my table and reorganize my woodworking station.
