Getting Ready for Winter

  I just finished putting tung oil on my bench to prepare it for winter. Also purchased a nice bench cover to protect the bench. Found this cute pillow and put it back for next spring where it will sit on the porch bench! Wow, is that planning ahead or what? True story is I walked in the store and it had been reduced three times so I could not resist buying it.  Next spring my bench will be … [Read More...]

The Real Deal

This cute green cowboy material is actually from the 1950s! It is the real thing and not a new retro fabric. I found this in an antique store. I actually knew more than one person who had this fabric in the 1950s in the small town where I grew up! … [Read More...]

More Retro Cowboy

This is a cute blanket throw in retro cowboy. I love these materials. I would not want an entire room in them, but a piece here and there as an accent is nice. … [Read More...]

Retro Cowboy

  I really love all the cowboy retro materials from the 40s & 50s! I can remember when growing up actually seeing these materials in houses. Anyway, found some material at a local flea and made into a pillow. It just gives me a good feeling to look at it! … [Read More...]

Strangest September Sunset

We had this very unusual sunset earlier in the month. It was dramatically different from most of our sunsets. This one was hard to capture on photo, but in real life it almost looked biblical... … [Read More...]

Isn’t She Sweet?

This Canada fawn was ready to let me take as many pictures as I wanted which was fun to be able to get up close and get a head shot. The deer around my parts do NOT stick around and let me take pictures. Run is the name of the game! Can you blame them? … [Read More...]

Ball Park Deer

What you cannot see in this picture is that this deer in Waterton, Canada was actually sitting on a baseball field watching the local baseball game in progress. Waterton actually has deer wandering all over the place. In town, on front lawns, beside the roads and at the baseball field! … [Read More...]

Cute Critter

Chipmunks are the cutest. At least they seem cuter than the pesky squirrel I had in my attic last winter. I saw this one in Waterton, Canada this summer while visiting the Waterton waterfall. I think I like Chipmunks and think I can pass on squirrels. I have a farm squirrel who manages to get in our chicken coup/playhouse every winter. Oh my goodness, what a huge mess he makes of everything. We … [Read More...]

Big Horn Sheep

This big feller got caught in the Glacier Park road construction this summer and could not seem to find a way to get off of the road.  Some stupid man got out of his car to get a really great close up picture and I was hoping to see the man go flying from a head butt, but this big guy was way to busy trying to get away to give us that pleasure! Park visitors can be irritating! … [Read More...]

Daddy Goat

Daddy Goat from Glacier National Park this summer. He had his family with him sitting right by the road! … [Read More...]

Baby Griz at Farm?

No grizzlies at farm! But I did visit friends in Montana and got a great shot of this little guy up close. Mom was on down the hill eating her fill of Huckleberries long enough for me to capture her baby. I love our farm, but Montana is absolutely beautiful! More Montana pictures later. … [Read More...]

Cha-Cha Solar!

  Got a few of these cute solar lanterns to try out and they worked great. How easy & so very cute for any farm or house. I wish I had ordered more... They came from Target. … [Read More...]

Antique Chicken Coup

Our farm has an old chicken coup that was built around late 1800's. It used to be in the cattle & sheep pasture. That pasture now has my donkey's and pet goats. I have always loved this little structure. It was a rickety falling down little thing that had seen better days. A few years ago I made cowboy have the stone restored and had a little tin top but on it. Then we moved the fence line to … [Read More...]

Can I Cook Eggs on Sidewalk?

If I had a farm sidewalk we cook cook our dinner on it tonight...REALLY! I hate to complain, but since I always have an ongoing farm list of things to do and knowing they will not get done in this 105 degree heat today I have posted a picture of where I will probably be all weekend...under our wonderful shade trees. Cowboy got me a really great mist maker so it will be hooked up all weekend. This … [Read More...]
