you should hear the robins singing this morning ~
and the little whipporwills lulled us to sleep last night....
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!
FAT FREE treat ~
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 ~
I'll be putting these in the shop for the open house.
IN OTHER NEWS:
our beautiful peacock-couple,
Billy & Sky
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!
