the stunner.



The view this morning out the front door.

Oh, I wished it lasted longer,
but for a few days each spring we are treated
to this stunning display of crabapple loveliness.

one last thing.... Lamb Farm.

 


I knew I wanted to add a sign from
my collection of old signs
to the front entryway coat rack.

I had the perfect one 
in the garage.




Yesterday I dug it out and put it on the rack.

I may hang it, but I like it just sitting there for right now.

The sign is from a now closed
Lamb Farm
that was south of 
Racine, Wisconsin.

I had driven past the farm many times over the years
before I had the opportunity to buy their sign.

The sign is made from painted white twigs
which makes it great looking.

Ta Da, done.

What do you think?  I love it.

P.S.  The antique rabbit doorstop is for sale in my etsy shop.

let there be hooks.



In my last post you can see the board without hooks.

I picked these hooks because I wanted to keep
the colors lighter and I needed hooks that
would fit below that deep top trim on the header.



I spaced the hooks 9 inches apart which is 
perfect for "our stuff".

Ah, done.
