Upcoming Easter Preview Weekend.....

Okay folks I will confess. It has been difficult to focus on the shop between the birthday party, taxes and a renovation project inside the house ( not to mention a busy 2 year old). Anyway, Hank helped me with the shop - cleaning, rearranging, etc. He took my "walls"off the back porch and now it looks fresh with a spring feel to it. I am at the sewing machine working on some cute bunny pillows and some other cute prims that will get you in the mood for spring. Our Easter preview weekend will kick off April 1 and 2. I plan on opening the shop as much as I can throughout April and am planning another event in May, which will be our Spring Open House ( the herbs /perennials will be ready by then).
***Our hours will be Friday, April 1 from 1-5 and Sat., April 2 from 10-3.
Kim McEntee will be adding some of her wonderful bunnies and dolls and Kathy King has been working on some new cross stich pieces. We have also been scouring the countryside for country smalls and primitives!! We hope to see you there. Feel free to e-mail or call for additional information.

The weather here just can't make up its mind. One day it's almost 70 and the next is 50 and cold!! Well, thank goodness we at least have some daffodils blooming now to perk things up just a bit. I always love the daffodils that bloom behind my split rail fence which runs along our driveway. Jared and I had fun taking some pics by them this afternoon. The bright yellow color warms me inside- although my outside is still cold!! Spring will be here soon and before you know it we'll be complaining about the heat. But for now I will enjoy the beauty of the daffodils that remind me that spring is just around the corner.

A Barnyard Bash...

Yes, folks I am still alive and kicking!! I know it's been a while but things around here have been very hectic!! Have spent the last 3 weeks preparing for Jared's 2nd birthday party. The theme was, of course, a barnyard bash!! We had a blast on Sat. Nine children and many adults filled our garage for an afternoon of fun. I have been preparing for months- literally!! We made a huge barn out of a refrigerator box and then some smaller ones for outside. We took the kids on a hayride to the barn to see the donkeys which was so much fun. But the food- well let's just say I will be catching up on my sleep this week. The barn cake was my challenge and at 9 pm on Friday night I thought I just couldn't do anymore. Then I went away from it for a while and finally it was done. If you ever want to make a barn cake- e-mail me and I will try to help you out!! The kids were great and it was a very special day. Now, back to a "normal" routine again. Keep watching for info on our upcoming Easter preview weekend at the shop- April 1 and 2.
