Happy May!

Image result for May

I absolutely love Spring! I love the yard sales, festivals, flea markets, flowers, and just being outside in general! I love being able to paint outside as well, which means I can produce more hand painted items! Being able to enjoy the warmth outside also is distracting! I always find myself fighting the urge when I am at home painting to hop in the car and go visit some of my favorite picking places and places I like to visit for inspiration!

While you are out traveling around Smith Mountain Lake, make sure to visit my booth upstairs at SML Primitives, located at 141116 Booker T. Washington Hwy. in Hardy, VA. Jennifer and her staff will be happy to show you around their wonderful store!

If you are in Vinton, VA, swing by It's a Wood Thang and More/Simplicity Boutique and visit my booth there. They are located at 304 W. Virginia Ave.

You can also find signs from The Country Shed at Diamond Hill General Store (you can see a lot of them in this photo!), located at 1017 Diamond Hill Road, Goodview, VA.

 All of these wonderful  locations have a wide variety of gifts and decor items!

I'm Just Me

Great ideas for tackling procrastination and getting things done! Love this free printable to serve as a reminder!:

I am a beginner at blogging, in fact, I am so inexperienced that I always get excited about writing a post and then never publish it for fear it would be bad. Well, today I decided to get over that fear and whether this post is good or bad, well, here it is! I plan to try to post on here at least every few days or so to share what I am working on and other "exciting" things going on with me and The Country Shed!

I started 2016 with a renewed inspiration to work harder on The Country Shed and to bring new life to both of my spaces, one at The Blue Ridge Antique Center in Rocky Mount, VA and the other at SML Primitives in Moneta, VA. I am excited to get both of these spaces revamped and to make them my own brand of unique (which many of you know is VERY unique! lol) I have some wonderful things in that need a little TLC before they hit the booths, and I working hard to get them ready to go!

I also started 2016 with a renewed inspiration to work on me, I know, we all have that one, don't we! While I would love to be tiny again, well I know my family genes don't allow for that, I just want to feel better about myself and know I need to be the best I can be which in turn will reflect in everything I do, especially for my family and for The Country Shed. While I have not really determined an actual goal for myself, I just want to work hard to have more energy, eat better and maybe if I am lucky, lose a few pounds in the process. I know I need to be a good example for both of my children and know that eating better and getting out and being more active (not just by antiquing and painting furniture!) will be a better example for them. 

Whatever goals you have set for yourself in 2016, I hope that you will stick to them and maybe we can inspire each other! Please feel free to share in the comments below what your goal(s) for 2016 are!
