Earth Day

Everyday should be earth day, shouldn't it?
It's our home. We need to put time and effort into it.
At least take the time to appreciate it, right?
So that's what I'm doing today.
Playing in my garden and enjoying the fresh air.
It does my heart good.
I even took a soil sample to the county extension office for evaluation this morning.
Last year, my garden didn't do as well as it could have.
So this year, I'm starting right. The soil is mighty important in producing a good garden. 
So...whatcha doing this Earth Day? 
Maybe planting and playing in the dirt? 
Happy Earth Day to You!

The Birds Are Singing

The birds are singing their song of spring.
It was a wonderfully warm weekend with lots of work to do in the great outdoors.
I spent some time in the garden and got a Farmer Fran tan. You know...where you wear a t-shirt and have that tan line across the top of your arm. I do it every year. I must say though, this is probably the earliest in the year that I'm a wearing my Farmer Fran tan. I'm such a trend setter.

Well, all that must come to an end says Mother Nature. 
We do have a freeze warning for tonight and some snow for tomorrow.
The birds may stop singing and start screaming...
will winter ever end!?!

Stay warm and hopeful! I've got to find something to cover up my plants!

(:  The little cast iron love birds in the above photo are now available in my shop!  :)

Kiss A Critter

It's Spring!!!
 
Go ahead. Let your hair down. Kick up your boots.
 
Celebrate. Enjoy. Kiss a critter.
Say what?
 
 
This little baby goat and my granddaughter bonded and became best buds.
 
So for spring, I'm not going to show you...
how I decorated my mantel,
how I crafted something cute for the season,
or how I whipped up something delicious in the kitchen
...because none of that is happening.
 
I'm taking a very simplistic approach to life and enjoying it.
I think we all go too hard at it and miss too much while we're 'busy'.
So my advice is to sit back and enjoy the day.
Celebrate your life. And don't forget. Go kiss a critter.

Waiting For Spring

 
We just had more snow and ice. Lots of it.
So I'm waiting for spring.
Yep, that's what I'm doing.
 
 
How about you?

Country Fun Filled Weekend

Nothin' like a country cutie to make one smile.
My little Sophia is coming to visit her Gramma this weekend.
 
 
Here she is, a pint sized gardener on her new homestead.
Sophia and her Mommy and her Daddy are working hard to make their dreams come true.
The garden has been expanded, the orchard has been planted, and the chicken coop has been built.
 
That little country gal will be growing up learning how to homestead.
It can't get any better than that.
 
And yes, that dirt smudge on her bottom looks just like a heart.
Hope you all have a country fun filled weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day

 
I've been wanting to make a rag wreath after being inspired on Pinterest.
I decided to do a heart one that I shaped from a wire coat hanger.
So easy to do. Just tied on some muslin strips onto the hanger.
Now where to put it? My tobacco basket looked a little bare.
 
 
Now that's better. Much better.
Wishing You a Happy Valentine's Day!
