and Happy Monday to you! tis a grey, drizzly day here on the farm...
a good day for chicken soup, as my sweet Mom would say!
so I think I'll do just that ~
put a pot of chicken soup on the trusty woodstove to warm our bodies & spirits...
|our little herd|
I think you're adorable ~
|one of the twin yearlings ~ we have two sets of twins this year|
|i see you!|
here are a few snaps of our old green cupboard in the dining room...
|ready for Springtime ~ love rabbits & ironstone|
|a couple little black sheep in the mix|
|worn, chipped, cracked & yellowed ironstone ~ simple old farmhouse perfection!|
...now it holds a favorite pair of red-handled children's scissors
and a hand written note from my friend Netty L. ~
of course it had to come home with me...I would put it in Barbara's cage, but I'm afraid the paint on it might not be safe for him, so it sets amongst my sugar & creamer on the cupboard....
|pink transferware platter, and old bottle ~|
|I know, an ecclectic mix of things, but they fill my heart ~|
I decorate with things I love and things that hold memories...
|baa baa black sheep|
...soup tureens, handstitched samplers & old wood...
bright & cheerful for my old farmhouse!
