i don’t know about your climate, but the weather here has been downright miserable. i think if i have to shovel snow one more time i’m going to crack. not only that, i’m honestly running out of room to put it. jen, have you sent that letter yet?
we did get a bit of sunshine yesterday, and it was much appreciated. i was making blueberry pineapple jam, the sun was shining and it almost felt like summer. almost.
i have one more sign to share with you before my etsy shop opens up tomorrow. here’s the link. (even though there is nothing there at the moment.) i should have everything up and ready around 10am est tomorrow.
and thank you for all your support, amazingly sweet comments and the ooh la la love yesterday. every comment i read is truly special. so, if i don’t say it enough, thank you.
so this sign was painted again on my lovely barnwood which i painted with a mix of dark and light chartreuse/olive green color. it’s really beautiful.
and some of you have been asking … to get such beautiful/straight/uniform lettering, i print the text out via my computer/printer, transfer (pencil, carbon paper, chalk, pressing really hard, etc) it to the wood, then paint. so i have a rough guideline and i work from there. make sense? someday i’d like to have a projector like mms to make things even easier.
as far as i know, ‘buttonwood gardens’ does not exist. i used to live on buttonwood street in philadelphia. and the green color inspired thoughts of gardening. so that’s how it came about.
it’s so comforting this time of year. the color green. thoughts of gardening. spring, please hurry.
now, back to more jam making … up next … champagne ginger peach. yum.
