Spring Turkey

 Spring is definitely making an appearance,
the willow tree is covered in pretty green buds.
We finally got some much needed rain the other day,
so the grass is greening up, the ducks are back,
and cardinals are making a nest near our back yard.
Of course, I wasn't expecting to see a turkey in my back yard!
We have seen a flock of wild turkeys in the area,
but I was a little surprised to see this lovely lady
 peering through my office window.


She didn't stay long, 
but I did manage to get a few good photos.


And then she flew over the fence!
Have you seen any wild life lately?
Bye for now!

What I'm Working On


Working on a new cottage pin
and kicking around ideas for a 
customizable pin. 
 Also started crocheting butterflies 
for my summer decor.
Aren't they pretty! 

Bye for now!

What I Wore


Ah, it was one of those days that felt like spring 
and winter at the same time.
Warm in the sun, but with a cool wind!
So layers were called for:
Denim jacket, belt and purse: thrift
Cardi: JCPenney
Tee and tights: Target
Shoes: Dansko
Crochet collar, skirt and chalet pin: made by me
Butterfly pin: vintage


While I really love the warmer weather, 
we really could use some rain. 
Instead we just get lots of wind!

Linking to Turning Heads Tuesday!
Bye for now!

"Wooden Shoe" Like These Shoes?



I would love to have some real shoes like these to wear,
but alas,
these are just teeny little wooden shoes that I hand painted.


I really do love miniature things,
although painting in miniature can be tricky!


But it was definitely worth it,
because I love how they turned out.



 Here are some adult wooden shoes,
to show what size the hand painted shoes are.
 The littlest ones would fit on a doll.



Then I thought I'd add the big shoes
to my spring display. 


As you can see, 
I also love wooden shoes.
I'll have to take pix of my other wooden shoes
one of these days. 
Bye for now!

Egg-cellent Color


 Hope you had a nice Easter,
we had a nice quiet one.
Not a lot of cooking and baking,
but we did color some eggs.


It's always fun to play around 
with the different colors. 
 

They aren't perfect, 
but that's what I love about them. 
Bye for now!

What I've Been Working On


Finally getting around to painting 
some little wooden shoes 
that I found a while ago.
 

Also working on spring cleaning 
in my studio.
 

 And spotted our stray cat
hanging out in our play area,
right at the top of the slide!

Hope your having a great week!
Bye for now!

Rose Cottage Pin

  
Just finished this new pin:
Rose Cottage!
You can find it in my shop!
I love adding all the little details, 
even though it takes time and patience. 





 Wouldn't it look great with a vintage dress like one of these?
Bye for now!
