What's in My Studio... fairy house makings!

Fairy house makings! 
Scavanged bits and pieces from the recent wind storm drying in front of the furnace vent. You'll note the hose from the vacuum at the top left. Many leftover droppings even though most are on newspaper. 
The cones and the light green mossy branches at the right were just brought home from my hubby's first foray for morel mushrooms today. (He found a few... they are almost ready!) 

Hubby cut the door for the fairy house. 
We used a wood bird house from Joann's, which will be the base. More on this project to follow... 

Out on the planting table, just outside the studio walls is this adorable little planter. Oops, this shot is in the greenhouse waiting for the dirt. Rest assured it does have it's dirt and is happily awaiting further growth. 
My great niece painted this pot herself, for my birthday (Saturday). Part of my happy day included hanging out with M and her brother in the morning while Mom worked for a couple of hours. Yay for me!

In other news, I've had a busy week in the Etsy shops. They are keeping me hopping for sure (and in spending money) and also keeping me well on track to triple my sales this year. I may have to bump that goal up. Another yay! :D

I'm still happy! Happiness is, after all, a state of mind.  

OMG, is anyone else addicted to this song. O.o  

Sharing with Julia and the rest of the Wednesday Work Desk sharing folks...
