Spring Chores - DONE!!!

You're probably wondering why I haven't made any posts recently about my etsy shop. In two words, "spring chores". Here in Florida is gets so dang hot that if I don't do my gardens in the spring, it just doesn't get done. This year we had a lovely prolonged spring so I was able to get a lot done. Here's a couple of photos of what I've been working on.



And here is my final spring project. I refinished my mail post and decorated my new mail box. I luv the way it turned out. What do you think?
