New Furniture

I have been waiting for this day for a few months now!  My new furniture from Sprintz arrived today.  This is our first home with a formal living room.  I wanted a contemporary sofa, one with lots of pillows.  I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it in the showroom.
Sorry for the blurry photo, but here's the detail of the sides and back - the piping really emphasizes the that !
I also got two side chairs.  Keeping with the contemporary theme - wanted to have a geometric pattern.  Hard to tell but the colors are cream, tan, gold, and a very light green.
They are so comfortable....can't wait to curl up with a good book!  It was fun to pick out fabrics and imagine what they would look like on a piece of furniture.  Guess I can remove the tags now!

I'm off to try out the sofa.....Robin

Flood Pix

A week ago today, this is what our gravel driveway to the shop looked like.  It's kinda hard to see in the pix, but it's completely covered by running water.
This is B emptying out the shop vac he used to remove the water in his shop.
This is a closeup of the water at the corner.  It's not very deep but you can tell how fast it was moving.

The Art Mill

I took a quick class (2 hours in the evening) at the Art Mill in Lebanon and painted these flowers.  It was wonderful to spend time with a good friend and also create something!  Scott and Caroline have a great setup.  Their website has the monthly calendar so you can pick what you want to paint.  I plan on doing this again.

Springtime Cards

I actually made a few cards recently.  The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart.
This one is my Mothers Day card for my mother-in-law.
Loved this purple paper!  Just realized this is the only one that I stamped on.  This was sent as my Card of the Month.
