Shoo Fly & More
Last Friday the shoo fly I ordered from Primcats House arrived. This gave me an excuse to rearrange the stove board. The snowman is gone & now there is a duck & bunny on each side of the new shoo fly. Thanks Carmen.
The shoo fly gives the stove board a fresh new look.
The old barn sink continues to stay on the table but has some sheep added to the display.
I really liked the black basket but I just thought it was to much black. I painted the basket a cream color to match the crocks on top of the fireplace but I did not like it so on went another coat of paint.
The basket endedup being painted brown.
Ollie has had another suitor come calling. This is the third fellow to pay visits. They all three continue to visit daily. I would have thought by now they would have all given up on her. Ollie is safely tucked away from them all. I am wondering if they will just decide to make the homestead their home.
Sam & I have been enjoying hot cups of mint & chocolate hot cocoa & apple crisp on these cold nights.
As the garden sleeps it was covered in a blanket of soft white powder. All the tulip bulbs wait for spring to arrive so they can burtst thru the soil & open into beautiful red blooms. I am in a hurry to see the wonder of their beauty.
Blessings Til Next Time!
