Outdoor Farm Shower

We have an outdoor shower at farm. It has hot and cold water so we can usually use it from late April to November depending on the year. The shower comes in handy because most of the time farm work makes us ultra-dirty and being able to shower outside keeps the farmhouse clean (Well, that is […]

Lamp Love

Rattlesnake Whisperer

The Little Things…

In the end you will not be thinking about that special car you owned, but rather, I imagine it will be all […]

The Garden Scoop

Cowboy came home with these in early spring. They may be hands down the best gardening tool I have ever had. So easy and so cheap! Each scoop has a place to fit over your hand. Every spring when my live oak leaves fall I rake them up into huge piles then use my hands and a […]
