SPRING and Miss Begonia ReDo Has Started


Who'd have ever thought I'd be so glad to see a Dandelion?  But, it is a sure sign that Spring is not far off!! Yea!!
 
 
The Spirea in the back yard is beginning to get hundreds of little, tiny white blooms. Yea!!
 
 
These are some small, miniature Daffodils that I got at Lowe's over the weekend.  They certainly did bloom out quickly.
 
 
I also got these little Violas.  Aren't they sweet?
 
NOW TO THE START OF THE REDO OF BEGONIA!!
 
 
This is where we started.
 
 
Over the weekend, I sanded and sprayed the bottom metal part with Oil Rubbed Bronze paint.
 
 
Here's a closer photo.
 
 
And, here's the start of her transformation.  I can't wait to finish her up.  She is going to be beautiful.
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

  5. She is beautiful. I guess you guys have had more rain than we have. My spirea doesn't even have little buds. I'm excited that you are going to make a quilt! You have my phone number, right? You call me if you have any questions! I'd love to help if you need it! What pattern are you going to try?

    Cheery wave!

  10. Hi Judy, thanks for sharing early Spring with your beautiful photos. I love dandelions. When I kept my grandson, he picked them for me, so I don't mind them in the yard. Wonderful memories. Anxious to see how you dress your mannequin. I have one I need to do something with.
    Blessings,
