bait and switch it on

 just popping in to say hi,
i've missed you all,
and i so appreciate your sweet, caring comments regarding
my dad's passing and the grieving process.
mr. 1829 and i were able to get away for 8 glorious days
to sarasota/siesta key, florida the last week of april. 
it was just what i needed to regroup,
get some much needed vitamin d and rest.

now that spring has finally arrived in the northeast, 
(our area had a record rainfall in april of 8.53 inches)
we are getting our lawn mowing caught up,
 flowers planted, gardens cleaned out, veggie's planted,
and so on.

i have a long list of to do's to finish before mid-june,
so i am up and going every morning to
git er done!

 and now to show you the reason for the title and what i've been up to...
 i've created a few things this past week. 
it feels sooooo good
to get my brain and hands working on a project!

and this happens to be a super easy one.
a peek inside
socket attachment
love the red handle...
illuminating dontcha think?!
 our screenhouse...
a repurposed corn crib
our summer set up

a new light fixture...
all because of some spring cleaning
and a desire for a more vintage look.

necessity is the mother of invention!

still have some tweaking to do but for now,
the screenhouse is clean, neat and ready for use.
my daughter said she'd consider sleeping out there this summer.
let the fun times begin.
