The luck of the Irish

Ah, the luck of the Irish has been with me this weekend!  I found 3 4-leaf clovers just walking through my yard!  Each time I was just walking along and looked down and there a 4-leaf clover was!  I put them in a book to press them, maybe I will even make a couple pendants out of them!

It reminded me that I need to look down more often though and notice some of the little things.  The seeds sprouting, the tiny flowers that would be missed, and even the little bugs working hard.  The little things are so easily missed but often some of the most amazing things come in little packages. 

Hope you have a lovely day!

Progress in the Shop and Progress in the Garden!

We've been working hard here at the MooreMagnets house! 

Hubby spent a lot of time on the tractor this past weekend moving dirt around in the garden and then running the disk harrow over it to loosen it up.  I have to give him props because he sure has gotten better on the tractor! 

When we moved here and got the tractor neither one of us had much experience with a big garden or a tractor.  So after 3 or 4 years the dirt had been moved all over the place creating a lot of mountains (ok hills) and valleys! 

Now it is nice and smooth, and almost ready for planting.  All of that wood needs to be cut and moved to form raised beds.  I'm starting with two for now for some cold weather veggies.  The pallet eyesore is my new compost and there will be a second one on the other corner.  Maybe I'll plant some beans or gourds around them to make the pallets look prettier!

I've been out working in the shop today though.  I have quite a nice stack of work to do there! 

You will be pleased to know that I enjoyed that glass of ice tea before I came in to write this post though!

Featured Friends - Laura from LeAnimale

I think one of the best and most unexpected things that has happened since I started selling on Etsy and selling at craft shows are the wonderful and talented friends that I have made along the way.

I hope you will enjoy seeing objects made by a few of these friends!

Today I introduce you to Laura of LeAnimale!  She makes the most wonderful animal totems, necklaces, and notebooks!  Each one is specially sculpted and just looking at them amazes me!

I really want this cute little penguin necklace! She has a virtual zoo in her Etsy shop!  Laura doesn't live too far away from me, and I look forward to having coffee with her again soon!

Facebook Fan Fabric picks!

A couple weeks ago I asked my Facebook fans to tell me which fabrics I should make things from!

Here are a few of the boards that were made from those!  I'll have more new boards listed on Monday ... depending on how camera-friendly our weather is the next few days!
