Oh dear.

Here's what's on the table Mabel.  



Baby Bunny coming along nicely.


Petunia the Pig's little rosette.

I really thought last week I would have both of these items finished by now.

That's what I get for thinking. *sigh*

I'll keep you posted on their progress soon and any other shenanigans going on around here.

Have a wonderful week my friends. *waving*

Oh my.  Where has this week gone?

Just this morning I was sitting at the kitchen island thinking to myself, "geez, we're already more than halfway thru February already".  Weird, isn't it?

I've been busy cleaning our homestead today.

You know, one of 'em pull out the stove and refrigerator kinda cleanings.

I love a clean house.  Serious love.

It makes me believe everything is right with the world.

Even tho' it isn't, if my house is clean - it's right honey. *wink*

The day is closing as I type.  It was a gorgeous Spring-like day with temp's in the 50's, sunshine, birds were singing.

I just came in from feeding and I let the chickens out for a spell.

I love the sound of Mr. Whipple clucking for his girls to "come here, see what I've found!"...*smile*

Since I'm in one of my let's-get-down-get-dirty-and-clean moods, I couldn't get as much done as I did without a lil' music playing.

Let's just way that this old homestead was rockin' today people. *giggle*snort*

Here's one of the songs that I was singing into my mop handle.  I provided the lyrics just in case you wanna sing along. *smile*

Heeey heeeey heeeeey

Your lipstick stays on the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn't forget you
And so I went and let you blow my mind
Your sweet moonbeam
The smell of you in every single dream I dream
I knew when we collided you're the one I have decided
Who's one of my kind

Hey soul sister, ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight

Heeey heeeey heeeey

Just in time, I'm so glad you have a one track mind like me
You gave my life direction
A game show love connection, we can't deny
I'm so obsessed
My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest
I believe in you, like a virgin, you're Madonna
And I'm always gonna wanna blow your mind

Hey soul sister, ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight

The way you can cut a rug
Watching you is the only drug I need
So gangster, I'm so thug
You're the only one I'm dreaming of
You see I can be myself now finally
In fact there's nothing I can't be
I want the world to see you being with me

Hey soul sister, ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight
Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight
Heeey heeeey heeeeey (tonight)
Heeey heeeey heeeeey (tonight)

I've only got our Mudroom left to clean and I'm done.

When I come in from the garden or feeding or the barn I enter into our Mudroom.

So I'm sharing a rather dark photo of our Mudroom.

Exciting stuff here, is it not? *giggle*

This exact photo was featured on a friend's website called, "Carole's Country Store".

I purchased that darling little basket from her that you see hanging on my peg rack.

Right now she's offering a most wonderful magazine for sale in her store, amongst other things.

She talked about the magazine this morning on her blog, here.

If you love early homes like I love early homes then you'll want to get yourself on over there and purchase a copy.  I'm just sayin'.

Well, the sun is setting and I need to go outside and tuck the chickens in for the evening, finish cleaning and get dinner going.  A woman's work is never done.  Amen, right?

Over the weekend I'll be sharing a few things with you that I've been working on in my Sewing Room.

And that's about it my friends.

As always, thank you for coming by and I hope you have a most enjoyable weekend!

My wordless Wednesday.

Love ya's,

February 14, 2012

“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, 
but I can tell you what it is for me; 
love is knowing all about someone, 
and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, 
love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, 
including the things you might be ashamed of, 
love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, 
but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”

I proudly announce the introduction of three very precious & sweet lil' tweets.

Please meet...





All three have been tweeting & fluttering about in my Sewing Room anxiously awaiting their debut into my humble Etsy Shop and they each will be making their grand entrance this evening.

We thank you kindly for visiting.

Bless me, please?


Thank you.

I've been hit by a most awful cold/flu combination.

I knew it was coming as it was making it's impending arrival known earlier last week.

I tried and tried to thwart it's capture but it wouldn't relent.

It came.  It saw.  It conquered.

My already ill strickened body played host to every cold and flu symptom imaginable.  

I was reintroduced to bodily fluids and their functions.

Fever ravaged my body, at one point, my husband wanted to take me to the hospital.

I opened one eye and with crust ladened lips I muttered, "get me the gun"...

*giggle*  I stop now.

At least it didn't numb my sense of humor.  Yay, huh? *wink*

I am vertical and on the mend.

Today I will be working on three sweet lil' tweets who have been upstairs in my Sewing Room anxiously awaiting their debut into my Etsy Shop.  My sincerest apologies for the delay.

And the other evening the most delightful frozen concoction started falling from the sky.  It kept falling until it blanketed the woods, fences and barns leading one believing the next morning they had just awakened into a fairyland where everything is covered in buttercream frosting.

Then my fever broke. *giggle*

Okay, it did snow here shortly but then it was gone the next day.  

Anyway, I stop the silliness now, before I lose you all forever, and I leave you with a photo of our woods from one of the many glorious snows of last Winter.  

"There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow.  
It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, 
every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance."
-William Sharp

Have you been clutched by the claws of the latest social monster known as "Pinterest"?

Pinterest soothes my restless soul, nurtures my creative spirit and feeds my obsessive compulsive nature.

If you know the essence and the truth of the words I speak then we are sister and brother.

If you question the above then come with me my pretty and join me in a most delicious addiction.

*insert sinister laughter here*
