Round Top Time Again!


I am excited to see what the dealers have to show us this time.
 I always come back with a full load
and my head spinning with ideas. 

A few pics from previous shows to tempt you...

Next time you visit Maui

 You have to stop by my daughter's shop next time you find yourself  in Maui. You can find Manihi at 
844 Front St. under Mooses and also near Bubba Gumps.

Leah has created some fun and beautiful jewelry for 
the islands and wherever you may live.

 The Tahitian pearls she uses are such a
pretty color. They remind me of robin eggs.

Good job, Leah!

A few birdies stopped by to visit.
 I am ready to go too!

Barns R Us

Mr. Ella and I  happened upon a farm full of barns. Over thirty barns. Nope, that is not a typo.
How this came about is another story and I will tell you about it sometime...

 


 I was in awe of the beauty of the vines wrapped around the silos.

Old hinges, barn wood, bed springs and gates - all make me smile!

Something to Crow About

 Our Romantic Prairie home has been a slow process for us to get settled. We seem to be going in a million directions at one time.... 
I finally found a house number sign that I couldn't pass up. She came in the mail this morning and I quickly perched her on the front porch. 
 I ordered her on Etsy from Cabin Hollow.
She's cute isn't she?
 I had to make the crow a she since there already was a nest nearby. Although I am certain these are not the correct kind of eggs.... we can pretend.

Quite an improvement from the temp sign, wouldn't you say?
