Let's Face It

These are my latest projects: face bags. They are currently available at
Three French Hens in Nolensville Tn.


Our chickens have "found" the front landscaping and love to come scratch and peck there.  Well, Echo and Whisper saw them and were very intrigued/mesmerized.  So I had to get a picture.  You can see Zoe to the left of them. 

And Then.....

         Button laid her first egg.

The very next day....

...she laid another!  And Aubry was there to see it happen!  She had gone out to see where her "girls" were and she found them inside the coop (they go everywhere together).  As Aubry is standing there talking to them, Button sort of sits up and squatts and Aubry hears a "thunk"; the second egg!  How exciting!  I never knew having chickens would be so much fun, but they really are!
I didn't take a picture of it, but we got our 3rd egg today.  I think Button is on a roll.  Zoe needs to catch up.  he he

School Pictures

I get pictures of the kiddos every fall.  As I was taking sweet shots of Aubry, we decided to get "the girls" in on it too.  (our hens)  The top picture is Aubry with Button, our Americana, and then with Zoe, our golden lace Wyandotte.
Aubry loves her sweet chickens (and so do I).

                   And this is Mr Logan.  He's such a handsome young man.  When he was younger, it was much easier to get a nice picture of him.  These days he's very ornery and would rather show out for the camera than let me get a "serious" shot.  I was able to sneak this one in though.

Chicken Tee

My girl loves her chickens and we recently
saw a t-shirt in a catalog with a chicken
appliqued to the front.
Being the DYIers we are, we decided to
try our hand at this.
Here is the product from
concept to completion.

Pool With Fence

The fence is up and it's so pretty.  You can't see the gates here, but they have an arched top.  I was surprised how much better the pool looked with the fence.  Now it's time to landscape....

More Star Wars

The guys are almost ready for their big trip.  I've posted a few more pictures.  The dark haired boy is Logan's friend, Andrew, who is going too.  There will be much fun had by all.....and lots of wonderful memories too.

Utterly Rediculous

My girl has learned to crochet and there is no end to her ideas.  She made udders for our cat, Whisper.  He's a good sport.  If I tried to do this though there would be wounds.  Aubry is Whisper's "person" and she can do no wrong in his eyes.

Pool Progress

We're getting there...  just a little more work and then a fence.

Star Wars Celebration VI

It's time for another Star Wars Celebration and my guys are going!  The costumes are still in the works, but this one is almost completed and I just HAD to share it.  Logan painted and distressed his armor.  He looks SO grown UP, doesn't he?!

Trying on all this stuff  is exhausting.

A Refreshing Trip

I had the priviledge to attend a stamping convention in Cincinnati with some friends and OH what fun we had! I found the BEST STUFF at a booth called "Coffee Break Design" and you can find their stuff at I bought WAY too much but CUTE! And look who else was there....Tim Holtz. My friend snapped this shot and I think it's adorable. he he

The Pool


So the next night, Todd and I went out to eat and I mentioned it to him.  He immediately started plotting it all out on a napkin and after dinner we went to see them in person. 

So now we have a partial pool completed.  It's a little further along than this last picture.  We need the concrete poured for the patio and sidewalk area.  Hopefully that will be done early next week. 

We're looking forward to having friends over to "play".

Another Quilt

This is another quilt I made over the winter and I'm just now getting around to posting it.  I love the colors.

Recent Projects

I saw a scarf made from old hankies on Pinterest so I made myself one.  It goes with so many things!

Though you may not be able to tell it here, this is actually a maxi dress on me.  I found the fabric at Joann's and KNEW it was to be mine.

This is a little dress I made from fabric I bought at a local store, Stitcher's Playhouse. 

Okay...this little darling is actually an under dress to wear under...

this and

this and...

I will actually make little flowers to pin to this.

This is a little dress I made for my sweet girl from a 1950's pattern. Isn't she adorable?!?!  She's my little steampunker.

Todd's Planes

These are Todd's model airplanes that he's been working on for the past year.  The top one is big and is in what they call the "coconut" series.  That's our queen-size bed it's sitting on.  BIG!  I don't remember the other one's classification, but I thought it was cute and wanted to share it.  It is not very big. hehe

The "Girls"

The girls are growing up.  Here is a recent picture of them.

Before, During, and After

These are pictures of Aubry getting her hair cut.  She donated her hair to Locks of Love.   She had 11 1/2 inches cut off.

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.
