The Key to My Heart

We always have tons of old and 
vintage keys laying around the shop

Keys come in all sizes and shapes 
and are so interesting and fun to look at

So we made these fun key tags using small framed blackboards, some twine, a key or two and a saying about keys in Chalk Markers

The possibilities are endless and since we are using chalk markers we can wipe off and change the saying at any time
Chalk markers are great.  They have a regular marker type tip and come in a variety of colors.  They allow you to write on just about any non-porous surfaces like windows, mirrors, glass of any kind, ceramics and of course, blackboards.

You can pick these up in the shop presently and we are planning on putting them on the website 
but haven't gotten to that yet.

Spring Activities

This year it seems as though we have waited extra long for spring to arrive....
So we are fully enjoying being out and about.  The gardens are looking good and the animals look happy to see the sun!

 So we took a ride to our local farm's only down the street, and they did not disappoint.
 Everything looked fresh and healthy
 They even sold organic manure from their farm animals
 This is only cement....
not any of the above cow's relatives,
but it is one of my favorite all time finds 
and I had to show it to you
When we got home someone came with several vintage, old, chippy paint doors....aren't they just fabulous!!

These will all be available in the shop
