Newest Simple Joy!

Here is a cute idea I incorporated into the Children's Garden:  I saw one of these at the Country Loft in Lamesa, California, one of my favorite places.  It's an old cake pan (funnel cake pan) put on a stick and used in the garden as a bird bath. 

Primitive Paper Mache Lambs

These are up-close photos of my paper mache lambs.  They measure aproximately 4" long.  I made the molds of Femo clay and then stuffed the molds with recycled and pulverised papers, adding a little clove so to keep the bugs from eating the finished little guys.  I put them into the oven on low for a long time and am quite pleased with the result.

Dog Days of Summer are Here!

The Dog Days of Summer are here.  It is a wonderful time of year and I am loving collecting seeds from the garden and packaging them up to sell.  See my etsy site for details (coming soon).           -Carrie
