As I was standing at my kitchen window the other day I saw this Momma cow giving her baby a bath so of course I grabbed my camera with the long lens. Ever so gently she gave the little one a bath. Nothing like that Momma love! I love farm life.
From the looks on these two faces I can see they are looking to get into some trouble. No really, aren't they sweet? I wish I could hug them but unfortunately after the first couple of days I can forget that. So I will just have to settle for being able to look at them and talk to them in the field.
Today is Christmas Eve and I am putting last minute touches on everything for when our family arrives tonight for supper and presents. I would like to say I love all the blogs I look at and I sincerely hope you like my blog also, so from me and my husband Richard Merry Christmas to you and your families. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Christmas Eve.
I went Antiquing with my childhood friend last Friday and found this little oak desk for the room in my house that Lucas, my nephew likes to play in when he is here. The desk lifts up and has an ink well. The chair came with it and I couldn't believe it was $30.00 for both pieces. I didn't have to do a thing to it except polish it up.
I do a lot of decorating at Christmas in all rooms, here are a few pictures. I hope you enjoy them. I have been collecting for years, I get a lot of things at flea markets, antiques stores, thrift shops also. Several of the things in these pictures range from 50 cents to a few dollars. Nothing I love more than finding something for a few cents or a dollar and transform it into something that looks good. To me it's all about the smallest detail. In this first picture the little snowman in red is really a bell and I gave 50 cents for it at the local thrift store. It's so cute I don't know why someone would not want it.
Welcome to my blog. I am a Farm Girl at heart and a photographer, still working full time and love to decorate my home. I am married to my wonderful husband for 27 years who puts up with all my ideas and believe me I have many. We have a little male Yorkie named Jake, 3 cats, a Koi pond full of fish and lots of cattle. We treat our cattle better than most people probably treat their kids. We love all our animals. I work at a major University as a Senior Secretary and do photography professionally on the side. My husband's profession is the owner of an archery business for 32 years. I love to decorate our home and scour antique shops and flea markets for unique items all the time. You can usually find me out and about on Saturdays looking. I help my friends decorate their homes too. I love to bake and am always taking things to work. We love to go to Wyoming on vacations. We raise cattle and something you might not expect from me is my husband and I love to Turkey Hunt together. I can't wait for spring turkey season.
