And the painting continues..

I've been painting up a storm here on the homestead as I attempt to make this place 'practically perfect in every way'.  To add a POP of color, I decided that the old rusting bed frame that my grandmother had placed in one of the gardens, could use a touch of bright yellow!   Another … Continue reading And the painting continues..

Update on the Homestead!

It has been a BUSY month and a half full of family visits, getting ready for college, fixing up the property, and my first ever trip to the county fair!  I just realized that I hadn't been updating my blog at all this past month and a half!  So I thought I would pop on … Continue reading Update on the Homestead!

My little fairy garden

Better late than never getting this in!  I've had the stuff sitting on the porch for months, but haven't had the time to get it done! We have this 'rock garden' where my Grandmother keeps the rocks she collects.  When the last place I had the fairies in didn't work out (the weeds kept outgrowing … Continue reading My little fairy garden
