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!

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!

Chicks First Day Out to Play!

**A blogger asked if I really had green grass already?
Yes, here in Southern California I have it year round!

Daisy, Myrtle & Kate are growing!
They had their first day outside to play, and loved it!
I used our dog play~pen we use for camping to keep them safe.
I took the top off and turned it upside down! Perfect. Safe from hawks & crows.
They have been out each day for 2-3 hrs. 

We have got to get the coop finished!
It will have a chicken run, so they will never fall into the pool.
These pictures were taken last week.
We now have added 2 more adorable chicks to the flock,
 Nellie & Emily.
They are all from the same brooder batch,
 so they know each other and doing perfectly well together.
More pictures soon of all FIVE!

Thank you for visiting!
