Hearts and Flowers and Projects Galore!!

Don't ya' just love this rock??

It's part of the art my brother has collected
and done in his yard.
Check it out.
None of these are glued together.

Gorgeous white tulips.

This is where my sweet fella and I have dinner sometimes in the summer.
It is in the front yard.
We just sit and watch people go by, and kids playing.
And we enjoy the flowers.

What am I workin' on? Cleanin' up my workroom.

What am I braggin' about?
One shelf done!!!


What else have i been doing?
tea staining work gloves...

making nests....

lots of nests.

Takes lots of cottonwood tree bits to get enough
to fill even these little nests.
See the tiny one in the middle?
It is only 1" across!

And heeere comes.....

Some red......

for you!!

Another cute mailbox!!


I'm joining these wonderful blogs today.
Please go by and say Hi, and see all the wonderful posts they have listed.

Oh look at all those little nests! So sweet! Love that firetruck mailbox too! Started my PS 139 jar, but am keeping it more pearly white than the worn/tea-stained look. Since I don't have a running printer, I may have to just hand write my scriptures.. We'll see! Love how it looks so far though, and I'll show you when it's done! ~tina

A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm. You have certainly been a busy gal, can't believe how adorable those nests are! And a heart shaped rock - just like finding a four leaf clover! Ciao, bella!

Angela said...

Believe it or not, my daycare children are standing beside me admiring your fire truck! 'Oh that is good' said the three year old..now he is going in circles around my table making fire truck sounds, LOL

Ann said...

I have to say we have many, many cottonwoods where I live. A few weeks ago while they were shedding their white fluffy stuff it looked like snowdrifts on the roads. Wish I had known...I could have easily filled boxes to send your way.
I love the rocks, that heart one is great. Also, the mailbox is too cute.
Have a wonderful day,
The Tattered Tassel

I don't know about you, but every time I clean up my work room, it quickly becomes just as disheveled as before! Sometimes I don't even bother.

Cute mailbox - haven't seen one like that before, just tractors.
