Want some?

Won't you join me in sharing this sweet bowl of cherries?
They are as good as they look.

Be back soon.

Hello from Me & My Peeps

The girls are getting bigger.  I often call them "peeps" because that is the sound they make right now and they seem to have a lot to say. We have had them for six weeks now.  They are losing their chick fuzz and growing lots of feathers. They are starting to look more like little chickens.

A couple of them remind me a bit of little eagles like the white chicken below (giggle).

It has been fun watching each one with their individual personalities.  This Rhode Island Red I named Lucy and she is one of my favorites.  She is so sweet and loves to be held or sits quite comfortably on my shoulder.

Their coop still needs some more work and finishing touches, but for now it is home sweet home for the chicks.

I want to welcome all my new followers.  Thank you for all your sweet comments.  I am so sorry if I don't answer all your comments personally.  This has been a very busy week for me.  Know that I appreciate the time you take to visit me and leave such thoughtful comments.  I have the best blogging friends a girl could hope for.  I hope you are enjoying your week with whatever you are doing.

Instant Relatives

I won a giveaway from Sandy's Creations and this is just some of the goodies she sent me.

Can you believe she made these dolls?
The "Baker" lady has a measuring cup and cookie cutter attached (how clever).

She thought to add little details such as jewelry, flowers and ribbon.

Sandy has a wonderful and whimsical blog.  I hope you hop on over there and tell her Danielle sent you.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Not much to say today except ...

If the flowers could speak,

I could imagine them saying nothing

but joyful and beautiful things.

It is a beautiful day and Lola and I are enjoying the sunshine and the petunias.

Pure joy and happiness.

Mom, Mama, Mother

To all of the Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, Sisters, and all those special people who stepped into the role of "Mother".

To be loved and cuddled.

To learn.

To be sheltered.

To be kissed.

Mom knew how to make it all better.

She had useful advice.

She shared about the love of
our Blessed Mother Mary in Heaven.

Thank you Mom.
I love you.

Happy Mother's Day.

She quietly sits on a chair in the corner of the room and patiently watches life buzzing around her.

She is very observant and notices even the tiniest of details.

 She is made of porcelain down to the boots on her feet.  She wears a simple gown with details of tiny buttons and lace.

She often wonders if anyone really ever knows she exists, yet she humbly knows she has much to offer.

She may be fragile, but
her heart is full and beautiful.

As she is a kind and compassionate soul, she offers to share her heart to anyone who is in need of love.

There is where you will find her
true beauty.

The Royal Treatment

When I spy something like this case
at a rummage sale, I grab it.

I am hoping to find one of these inside.

The lady at the rummage sale told me that it was donated by her husband.  He had used it all during his college years.  Keep in mind that laptops and personal computers were not around then.  I myself learned to type on a manual typewriter in high school.  There are no more typing classes.  When my daughters went to high school it was called "keyboarding".

Gosh I feel old.

This piece of paper was in the typewriter.

This is what I added to it.

Found these rusty things today.
They originally were the legs off
an antique "clawfoot" bathtub.

Do you see feet?

Or do you see bookends?

I think I like them as bookends.
At least for now.

I've had a busy week so far so I will try to visit you soon.  Can't wait to see what you're up to.
