Decorated Easter Eggs!

I use to decoupage blown~out eggs years ago. 
I used napkins and fabric.
As I was pinning on Pinterest I found some sweet ones I just had to share!
I pinned them under my SPRING BOARD below if you want to take a look … 
Above is a FREE printable you can find on my board also.
Such pretty prints.
These eggs were done with egg whites.
Love the pink egg carton!
These are fabric!
Rose covered eggs, oh my!
I think these might be my favorites!
Love that pink chicken.

And yes, I am going to make some!
How about you?
Thanks Bunches for Visiting!

Changes For My Trailer!

It's time for a change!

I have had my vintage trailer now for 6+ years 
and the theme has been pink, retro & cowgirl.

Since I am now going to enjoy my trailer "ButtonWillow"
at home more, I wanted a total new look.
One that is welcoming, warm and peaceful…

I have decided to go with a French~Farmhouse style!
I have been collecting my wares to make the transformation!
I went on a shopping spree yesterday and found 
some wonderful wares at my favorite shop,
COTTAGE CHARM in Murrieta.

I love this chair and the back of it made with chicken wire!
Lots of doilies, silver & crystal. 
The teapot I have had for many years.
Every time I go to Cottage Charm,
 I am able to find beautiful silver platters.
I crocheted the doily below using some pretty vintage yarn
my sister~in~law Susan gave me!
I will be making several more of them.
Love the color. 
This pillow is huge!
It looks old but is new.
I love the two tones in this one.
A strawberry on the top of my teapot. 
There is a special meaning to a strawberry since I was 4 years old.
I will keep you posted on the project I am about to encounter!
I may even do some painting inside of the trailer too!
Woohoo! I am so excited!
Have a wonderful day!

Sew Maryjane Pincushions!

I love sitting at my craft room table and
make these cute YoYo Pincushions!

I just added them all to my Etsy shop,

They are as big as my hand!
The base is lined for a wonderful quality. 
They are filled with crushed walnut shells
 that keep needles & pins sharp.
A bit of sunshine!
Customers love them!
Mixing the fabrics is loads of fun.
 Gotta love calicos!
Well, thank you so much for visiting!

Have a wonderful day!

A Quick Chick Update!

My little chicks are growing. 
Their age range is 6 weeks, 5 weeks and 1 is 3 weeks.

They are a (gold) Buff Orphington,
3 (red) Rhode Island Red,
and a (black) Barred Rocks.
Myrtle, Daisy, Nellie, Emily & Kate.
The first 4 names are neighborhood womens names while growing up that I remember fondly.
They love eating out of my hand and
they sure can pinch my skin!

See, they still have some of their baby feathers.

I love my girls, well I hope they are all girls!
Sweet Kate is a gentle soul!
She lets me hold her often. Love being a chicken mama!

Have a wonderful day!

Lunch Bunch Chicks!

Since I have a new flock of chickens again, 
I wanted to learn more about raising them.
I thought the perfect way to have a hands on approach is to start a hen club!
With that I started one up called the
Lunch Bunch Chicks!

We had our first official meeting last week.
I made some chicken journals for the ladies 
so we can keep notes on all the things we share!  
I have so many questions!
Of course we had to have lunch and 
shopping is always involved!
We found some really darling things at


I have always wanted a ceramic egg carton.   
I LOVE these measuring SPOONS!
The cute chicken timer we bought at Tom's Farms.
Can't wait for next month's Lunch Bunch Chicks meeting!
