Strawberry Tart Pinkeep ~

Good Morning Folks!!


it is a beeeutiful day here on the farm....
you should hear the robins singing this morning ~
and the little whipporwills lulled us to sleep last night....


ahhhhh,....spring!


we had a great Easter weekend, as I hope you all did as well....
so much to be thankful for ~ friends, family and FOOD!

I think I'll have to walk an extra mile or two today to help
shed the couple of poounds I've put on since friday!


BUT


here is a little
FAT FREE treat ~


it's a little wool Strawberry Tart pinkeep!


I've stitched it from handdyed wool, stuffed it with cotton and crushed walnut shells.
stitched on leaves made from old feedsack, then settled it onto a nest of dried moss...
lastly, I placed it into a little antique tin tart cup!!

the 'seeds' are pins that I've painted black ~

SWEET!

I'll be putting these in the shop for the open house.

IN OTHER NEWS:

our beautiful peacock-couple,
Billy & Sky
are expecting!!!!

Sky has laid 4 precious eggs so far, and I am told that she will lay another dozen or so before she will actually set on them to hatch them...
remember last year when we hactched 2 of her eggs in the incubator?
sweet little dears didn't live long, so we are letting
Mother Nature work her magic this time!!!

I will keep all posted on the progress and share pictures soon!


Hoping you all have a most wonderful day
~ full of sweet treats & beautiful things!


Blessings from the Farm...
