My friend, Patti and her husband Michael, host a Plowday each April.
I wasn't really sure what it was, but when I got to their ranch, I was pleasantly surprised.
Each year, a group of great people get together with their mules, Percheron and draft horses and plow the fields with antique plows.
It was like stepping back in time.
The people I met are genuine and true. Hard working, love their animals, their families and most of all, the land that they turn.

I made these this past weekend. I was going to put them in my Etsy Shop, but I decided to put them in the two local shops.
Three vintage pearl buttons on lace and printed paper with brass locket
Rose buds from tea stained binding tape and faux pearls
Large brass bird with tiny green and clear beads.
Silver spoon, old key, copper patina bird and silver spoon handle with crystal
Three old blue buttons, vintage tatting and faux pearls
Mother of pearl button, tatting and vintage beads
I will make more for my Etsy Shop. If you would like more information on these or special orders, please contact me. I will be more than happy to create something special for you!

After all the 'tilling, raking, composting, digging and planting, my vegetable garden is showing signs of life!
|The green beans will soon be climbing and blooming|
|My sister grew Swiss Chard in her garden last year and I was hooked!|
It is such a beautiful plant, I can't wait for stir fry!
|Zucchini squash is one of my favorites!|
|A nice Early Girl Red Pepper.|
I also planted green peppers and a jalapeno pepper
|This is the first time I have planted purple heirloom tomatoes, they are|
growing well so far!
|I can't wait to pick these cherry tomatoes and eat them right out of the garden|
|I LOVE Roma tomatoes|
|I can't forget the birds! These giant sunflowers will be tasty in a few months|
|A heart rock in the birdbath|
|My larkspur is blooming and adding pretty color to the vegetable garden|
|and a fence to keep all the night time critters out!|
I hope that we get some much needed rain here in central Texas or my garden will be done before it ever begins!

so without further ado.....
|The 80's flipped up bangs|
|sexy side sweep|
|The Marcia Brady-long and straight|
|Punk rock mohawk|
|circle circle dot dot|
|A river runs thru it|
|too much product, but I think going for the bed head|
|and finally but not least...The snowy mountain top|
I hope you have enjoyed the show. I am sure that the girls will be changing their styles in the next season. so stay tuned!
