Chick Cave!!!

Swoon!!!! Oh how I long for the day to have a specific room just for crafts, gift wrapping, sewing (still working on that one), scrapbooking, flower arranging, and whatever else room. I am collecting images for ideas on what exactly I want and decorating ideas for the space. I already have a cool light fixture to use. Thanks dad for letting me shop in your shop. And I definitely want an island. An island that has wrapping paper on one end in one of those cut off thingys that stores have. Loving the idea of recycling or upcycling items to use in there. Maybe one day I will have my very own Chick Cave!! Oh! And I already have an owl ordered to go on the door when you enter the Chick Cave or maybe it should be called the Hootie Cave! So, how about you??? Do you have your very own Hootie Cave or Chick Cave???? If you do I would love to have a look. Just send a link in the comments section for us to drool over! Have a great weekend y'all!

So it is another beautiful Friday in the Southeast!! I can't wait to be able to start the weekend. Gus is ready to play and run free for a few days. My brain is starting to think about Easter baskets and all the goodies that can be put into them. I love, love, love the little "Robin Eggs." This is the only time of the year that I eat Whoppers and I consume them. Yummmmmmy and pretty too!!!

Fishing is on the calendar for tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully the weather will continue to cooperate. I am also going to spend some time working on the extra memory quilts for my parents and my daughter. Oh, I got a sewing machine from my mom Thursday and am going to attempt to learn how to sew on it. She also gave me some of her old supplies such as a pin them. Looking forward to pursuing that hobby. I sewed many times with my grandmother when I was young but had not pursued it any further, except for cross stitching since then. Happy to bring that tradition back. I am also going to go to get some flowers for Kade's grave for the Spring/Summer and work on that project. And get some for the wreath on the front door.

Love this time of year and the renewal that abounds all around in nature. It is time to spend some time outside before it becomes an oven down here and I want to homestead inside during the hotness outside.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Spring Break!

The weather has been gorgeous during Spring Break!

Sunshine, quilt making, beach, fabulous eating, smell of sunscreen, playing with the puppies, riding the Gator, watching newborn calves, listening to the turkeys gobbling, riding dirt roads, spending time with my daughter, and remembering my son...very much needed time to decompress. AHHHHHHH!!!! I love it!

Thinking about getting a sewing machine and trying my hand at more sewing projects...hmmmmmm...might be a good time to start the chick cave!!! oh yeah!

Preview of Kade's Quilt

This is just a preview of Kade's memory quilt. It now has to be sewn together then taken to the lady that will be hand quilting it. I am so thrilled with how it turned out.
