I love to trade!!

Cathy, who spells her name the same as mine and also lives is Pa, took a serious liking to the train case that I had painted. I offered to trade it for one of her beautiful items and hinted that I loved her blueberries and she sent this to me. Now I had planned to have it in my sewing room, but it is just so pretty that I think it is going to stay right on my end table for now. It is perfect for all that floss that is laying everywhere on the table right now and all the needles and pins also. Thanks so much, Cathy! And then she also sent these pillows to me! What a surprise! They are the start of my fall decorating and are tucked into the items on the hearth. I love them! They are so detailed.

To see more of her items, go to http://cathspennies.blogspot.com/ I am still not sure how you gals make that clickable, but if someone wants to give me a computer lesson, please let me know.



These are a few more items that I am working on for the open house. I love those little canvases from Michaels. They are in the kids section and are $1 each. I need to get some more of those. They are finished on the sides, no staples. Great surface for painting and inexpensive.

You're very welcome, Cathy! I told you I would do just about ANYTHING to get that traincase from you.
Thanks for the tip about the little canvases at Michaels. My daughter, Jen wants to start painting again and I think that's probaly just the size that she's looking for.
