Perfect Saturday!

Finally No Rain!! It's a gorgeous sunny Saturday! Hopefully my veggie garden can start to grow now. Heavens know that we have enough rain last week! 

I have 3 more of my Fine Art Photo Coin Purses listed in my Red Oak Images Etsy Shop!

These are so perfect for a Graduation gift, Birthday or even Bridesmaid gifts. And never too early to get started on your Christmas Shopping! Eeeks...Don't even want to think about that. LOL

I plan get be adding more of these sweet little purses as I get the fabric printed. You can find them here in my etsy shop ----> Etsy

Oh and have a new phone case now for all those Vintage Button Collectors and Ball Jar Lovers!

My cases come in all the iphones and Samsung Galaxy versions. I offer the Slim Case and the Tough Case which is very popular. Nice soft rubber around the inside of the case. Great for the person who is always dropping their phone! I have the tough case on my phone and LOVE it!

And in the Bird World around my house...I am so happy to see these Goldfinches with their bright yellow feathers now!

And a couple of weeks ago the Baltimore Orioles were here for just 4 short days. That's about how long they stay. They sure did gobble up my oranges, grape jelly and nectar!

Two of the most colorful birds around!!!!

Gardening Time!

Yes...I'm still alive. Can't believe how long it's been since I last posted. Now that the weather has warmed up I've been pretty busy in the yard with clean up, weeding and planting flowers. I'm so excited that I will have a vegetable garden this year!! My next door neighbor has offered to share his garden space with me. It's about a 25ft X 25ft space by his garage where he usually plants all tomatoes. 

Saturday planted my green beans, carrots and Kale and potatoes. And yesterday planted my Better Boy tomato plant, 4 Green Bell Pepper plants and a Cilantro plant. I love making homemade Guacamole!!

Should be interesting to see how my garden grows. Just have to worry about the wildlife eating it all up. We have many rabbits and deer. Any tips on keeps these critters away, leave me a comment. :)

I did manage to make one of my owl orines last week and got it listed in my Rock River Stitches Etsy Shop

I plan to get a few more Owl's made along with some other critters. My primitive shop is suffering since I've been trying to get my photography etsy shop going.

Here is something brand new I'm working on in my Red Oak Images Etsy Shop.

This cute little coin purse is made with fabric that was printed with a photo image I took of the Cone Flowers that grow in my garden.

I'm expecting more fabric later this week so I can add more of these adorable fine art photography coin purses.

Just have to show you what happened in the wonderful world of wildlife around my house a couple of weeks ago. I had been seeing this female turkey walking all over our neighborhood for about a week. One evening I walked into our living room and there she was sitting on our deck! I was shocked to see this huge bird sitting there! Pepper my cat was very interested in her and kept pawing and meowing at her. Didn't even scare her away. I think she was very amused with Pepper! LOL It was so funny!

She was very pretty if you looked at her close up. Had beautiful feathers! She sat on our deck for about 10 minutes preening her feathers. I haven't seen her since then. 

Well that's it for now and I will try to post more often. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
