Saltbox & Farm Animal Primitive Softball Bowl Fillers Finished!

Well, I  finished the farm animal and primitive saltbox house themed softballs today.  My only regret was not having any coordinating potpourri to sprinkle around them for the photos.  Okay make that two regrets... Could have done with a little more natural light for less light bulb glare! ;)     

The softball fillers are so versatile with the paintings and prim sayings.   I fell in love with this recycling concept and knew I would enjoy creating them.   They are never tiresome in an arrangement.   And if you have a kid like mine, each day will find them rearranged in a different combination!  I won't even get into the story of when that son of mine continually switched around my laundry and cleaning supplies every night for a week.  I was beginning to think that someone was telling me from the great beyond to get off my behind and get my house in order! LOL  Do you suppose hubby paid him to do it? ;)

It was a pretty productive day today.  I managed to get these finished and some Americana ones started.  Then, something possessed me to do some cleaning of my basement shelves.  I will definitely have to do some listing on my selling blog in the next few weeks.  My goal is to downsize dramatically this year!  As this post is being typed, I am listening to the pattering of rain on our back door.  Must be the promise of Spring around the corner that has me in the cleaning out mode! ;)

When I think of all the balls lost in the fields behind the baseball fields around here you would have many to make your treasures. Blessings!

Hello Lara... I know! Isn't this a great item to recycle? And the best part is that the more wore out they are the easier they are to paint. So its a 'win win' situation! :)
