Red Handled Rolling Pins & Momma Groundhog

The pin on the left is from the Dollar Mart for $1.00. The pin on the right is a flea market find for $3.00 that was previously yellow handled. I painted both. The older one looks more glossy because of the previous coat it had.
 Today I'll share a super easy craft that really makes a difference.
 All it takes is 3 basic things:

A plain $1.00 wooden rolling pin from the Dollar Mart:
$1.00 at the Dollar Mart
 Some Barn Red glossy paint that I found at Big Lots.
Paint was $2.00 at Big Lots
 And a paintbrush.

Super easy as you see. Just paint on the red, glossy handles and let it dry.
I forgot to mention sandpaper above.
Ater this photo, when it all dried, I did go back with a little strip of medium sandpaper and rough up the handles a bit to give it a more worn look. 
And that was it!

What a difference a little red paint can make on a dollar rolling pin!
 I am a big collector of rolling pins. Mainly plain ones and red ones. It's hard not to keep all of these!

I price these Red Handled Rolling Pins in my
Booth#555 for $3.99

Oh, and before I go, I thought I'd share a few more pics from my yard.
Since my photo of my Momma Groundhog got a few comments in my Friday Five Random Things,
I thought I'd share a few more of her today.

Here, Momma Groundhog was posing for the camera.

And here she is on the far right, sitting with three little ones.
Yes, there's 3. Look close, the difficult one turned its head just as I snapped this. Kids!
 And then here she is taking it easy away from her kids.
I'm guessing this is Momma's relaxation time while the kids were sleeping or off playing.
 And up close a bit. She loves this spot. And seems to have no worries.

We can't bushhog or weed eat behind the trellis because that is where one of her little dens is they all come out of all the time.

Friday Five Random Things


My curtains soaking up the hot sunshine yesterday.
I've been finally getting a chance to get around in this "Blogland" lately and do some awesome reading and viewing.

I've been noticing today that people are sharing a lot of 
Friday Five Random Things.

Here is my first little go of it with sharing five random photos.

I took a walk around outside in the hot sun yesterday. It felt so good. I heard it got to 82* here in my lil part of the world!

A beautiful, big ole tree up by our picnic area yesterday. Getting close to getting its leaves.

A little stream that goes beside my driveway looks so quaint in the sunset,  yesterday.

And here is a cute mason jar filled with Easter flowers brought to me by my nephew on Wednesday.

And finally for my last of the five, is this cute little Momma groundhog.
She was in our yard about two years ago when I got this photo.
She use to stand like that for about 3 or 4 minutes before moving every time I'd see her out.
Momma Groundhog who roams my little bit of American soil.
More photos of Momma Groundhog & her family found in my other post.
