I saw a dove candy mold at the market & thought I would try making some wax doves. I poured the used melted wax from my tart burners & left them harden. They came out of the mold easily & looked pretty good. They have very little scent to them. Now that I know it works I will try it with unused scented wax.

I did not have the heart to put the unscented doves in the trash so I layed them on some greens on the stove board.

The tree is up & all a glow. No ornaments have been put on it yet. Sam said he likes it just the way it is. I guess we will wait & see what will come. I spoke with Sam Lucas Laken & my mother today about plans for Christmas. Nothing is set in stone at this time. I still need to speak to Atlee his girlfriend & the grands.
My day was a busy one from the time my feet hit the floor early today. Laken called & needed a ride to work. I went to pick her up & her employer called to tell her they were not busy & she was not to come in. So we hurried back to the homestead & the boys were off to school. The weather was nice so I cleaned all the animal houses. All have a nice fresh layer of fresh pine shavings to bed down tonight. I layered the gardens with the dirty shavings. Eggs gathered. Laundry vacuuming & scrubbing all were done. Before I knew it the boys were home from school & off we went to take Lucas to work & back again to get him. So off we will be heading to bed shortly. As I close I wish you all a good night with lost of rest to start the next day a fresh.

Blessings Til Next Time!

  5. Love your little doves Lara....and your tree and touches of Christmas look so inviting and homey....No tree here yet - and not sure how or if that will happen even....I feel like I'm in full panic mode - came home yesterday from my son's therapy appt, looked around and thought "a crazy person lives here" - there's black cats and pumpkins mixed in with Santas and snowmen and stray bunnies....and it's been days since I've seen my countertop....Help!! Hoping you're having a great today....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
