yeah, well, that is if we can find the ground underneath all of the WEEDS!
will officially be NO MORE
after this week...
(after all the bites I have from Hayin', I think I'll wear a HAZMAT suit!)
(i really didn't want to take a picture of them in there, but they insisted...
and yeah, that's hubby on the john...just posin' though!!!)
an outhouse with a flushing toilet and running water...
(Peter added the flowers...nice touch!)
I'm on the hunt now for old 'stuff' to decorate it with...
looking for old newspapers to cover the inside walls with
(a little 'reading material')
We've got TONS of work to do before the show
(which is less than a month away now! EEEP!)
the grounds are covered with weeds...been too hot to work out there...
then it rains and is too muggy, wet, bugs...
I just don't like to weed, ok?
(they have feelings to ya know!!!)
anyhoo, now that it's getting a little cooler,
I'll have to start on that...in the meantime,
I'll continue to stitch, punch, paint, sculpt and draw
all kinds of new halloween goodies for the show!
(btw, take a look at my HALLOWEEN BLOG)
Off to the farmhouse to make BLT sandwiches...
have some AWESOME tomoatoes from the garden and a loaf of fresh bread...
add me a nice icy glass of buttermilk
& I'm in Country Heaven!
Blessed be Friends!
I try to notice them as much as possible...
a bluejay feather laying on the grass in my path~
a barred owl's song at dusk...
a basket full of ripe tomatoes and corn~
a winged visitor to my herb garden.
My days are usually spent creating,
stitching, painting, designing...
and I am prone to be more introspective
when doing these things...
focused solely on my art, meeting deadlines, shipping & myself.
Lately, I'm becoming more and more aware of the wonderful creations around me,
in the form Gifts from Mother Nature herself.
(the new glasses are a plus!)
It's these quiet little Gifts (as I call them) that recharge my creative spirit & soul..
taking a walk around my property can yield more productivity from me
than any trek to a big city museum full of man-made culture.
when you take a break from your creating, when you tire of the repetition,
whether it be from stitching, painting, hooking~
go outside and look for your Gifts...
they'll be there waiting for you, ready to lend a tiny helping hand of inspiration...
Wishing you all a gift-filled day!!!
Blessed be, my friends~
