Yard Art

I was trimming up our Autumn Joy and Todd and I thought it would be cool to put them in the urns and in an iron planter. I added a few hydraengas too for added texture. Lovely! (Aubry helped)

Victoria's Farmhouse Dollhouse

Todd and I are in the process of putting a dollhouse together for Aubry. I knew it would be involved and take a while. But it's coming along.

Dream Chamber

I have a new hobby. Aubry got a doll house for Christmas and we are having so much fun getting our decorating ideas together. Well, the house is still under construction but I got to let off some creative steam with this little room. I found the glass case at TJ Maxx for only $13. I made curtains, a chair, and the bed. I call it "Dream Chamber".

Christmas 2010 and A New Year

What a beautiful Christmas it was! We had snow in Tennessee.

Aubry and I have been reading the Little House books and she wanted a dress from that era so I made her one. When she wore it to church she told her friends she was "walking history". One young man said she looked like a China doll.
This is a picture of Aubry and Logan waiting for the mail. They had a package coming.

And with the new year, I tried to do some cleaning and organizing. Aubry and YoYo helped clean out a corner cabinet. You can see how much help they were. HA

2011 is off to a good start. School lessons have begun. Plans for the coming months are a trip to Atlanta, a snow tubing trip to Indiana with our church teens, and I'll be participating in a sewing retreat as a teacher!

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
