I got to visit the spring open house at Gatherings in Anamosa this weekend, and, oh, was the shop full of the best of the best as always. I re-filled my masher box, got some great bowls and the mostest gorgeousest bread boards. My husband bought an amazing original blue paint bucket, wait until you see~! Today, we stopped in Marion and I have some really nice prims that need a paint job, they will arrive soon. I did get another of those unsolicted emails, someone cyber yelling at me for painting a bowl. Honestly, you would think I had snatched food from the mouth of a starving orphan rather than just prettying up an old bowl. I am fortunately getting much better at just hitting the delete button and not answering the critics!
