Cute, isn't it? And yes, it did come home with me. My twin sis and her husband, along with their border collie, Tag, came up to visit us at the farm. She and I went shopping in downtown Palestine while the guys cleared brush, trimmed a couple of trees in the front, and cleaned out Martin houses.
We found some really cool stuff -
A cute chicken mug:
Don't you love her kerchief? She makes me smile!
A metal heart ( I want to find some freeze-dried roses for it )
A old coffee tin and a Gingerbread-scented candle and of course, my chicken pitcher.
I had Theresa hang up my husband's baby clothes on my clothesline in the laundry room as I can't climb a ladder yet, and no, I didn't take a picture of them. I forgot. Lol.
I also took a canvas painting someone was going to toss, repainted it with chalkboard paint ( can you have too much chalkboard? ), and then wrote wintery sayings on before hanging it over the mantle:
We really enjoyed our visit. The guys got to go flying with our neighbor in his little airplane:
He flew them over the property and Bruce took pictures. How cool is that? You can see the barn, house, and shop:
In the next one, you can see the neighbor's vineyard to the left:
We also walked the dogs around the acreage - Tag is a good influence on my rowdy youngsters:
He doesn't run off so we were able to let Buddy run leash free and Herbie only had to be leashed when we got close to the pond ( he tends to bolt after wild life ). Herbie did so much better in listening and staying when told. Ha, ha, I need to borrow Tag to show them what to do more often.
We had a great time with them.
Here Michael and Theresa are watching Bruce plant a couple of blueberry bushes:
You can see we are not identical.
As always, time flew by and it was time to leave and head back to the city. But until the next time, our memories will keep us smiling.
