Happy Rainy Monday!!!!

Finally, we're getting rain.  Started sometime this morning.  I had a bad night and hardly slept, so was sleeping in this morning!!!!!

Want to share a garden pic I took last week.  My begonia.  Got it for $1 at an Amish stand a couple of weeks ago.  My poor chair has seen better days, but I love it.  Guess I should try and fix it up.  Did you know chippies like to eat the leaves and especially the flowers!!!!!  I've chased him out a couple of times.

Bought this 6 1/2" skillet last year.  It's a shallow skillet.  Was going to put a watermelon with a crow on it.  Glad I let things perculate in my mind.  After seeing some posts, alot of girls like chickens.   And I saw this in a magazine and knew this was going on the skillet.  It's a design by Cheryl Lafferty.

Then I bought this 10" wood plate.  Knew I wanted a Renee Mullins design and found this scarecrow in an old Quick and Easy Painting book.  If it doesn't look like it, I stained it.  That was a no-brainer!!!

Hey, my first 29 followers!!!!  I'm having a giveaway.  A few posts down, I'm giving away snowmen ornaments.  You have till Sunday to sign up.  I'll have my granddaughter pick the winning lady.  And you'll get to meet her then. 

I want to thank the new followers I got.  I'll do another giveaway sometime soon for old and new followers.

Hope it's raining where you live!!!!  :)
