I found a really neat old dress form this morning, The violin is a very old one and I will have to research it a bit to find out its value

One little known fact about me is that I love chickens. After hinting to hubby Marv for a few years he finally gave in and decided to build a chicken coop. As with everything he builds it had to be very sturdy,well-built and functional. I absolutely love how it turned out. Getting it out of our shop turned out to be a bit tricky but as usual he managed quite nicely. We let the kids pick out thirteen ckicks and they are so cute!

We have a sweet friend Anne that has wanted a garden cottage for some time. Today we had a great time setting up the cottage she purchased and got to share her joy as she saw her cottage evolve. Her excitement was priceless :)

May 2nd for me is both happy and sad. Tomorrow is the birthday of our youngest child. She has been a pleasure from day one. However it is also the day I lost my mom 3 years ago to pancreatic cancer. I am so fortunate to have had a wonderful, godly, intelligent,wise,extremely committed and solid mother. My mom was all black and white with no gray area. She new what she believed and she new what expectations she had of people. I really didn't know how much I admired my mom until she was diagnosed with cancer. Wow how stoic she was. She never complained, and her time left was all about those she was leaving, not herself. She had an incredible attitude about death and was confident of where she was going. I have missed her terribly and as Mothers day approaches I am so thankful for the wonderful mom I have had.
Tomorrow is also sweet Sarah's birthday so we celebrated today with a party in the potting shed. We had a great group of girls that eventually ended up in the pool (filled with last years water,ugh!) They did have a ball!
