Now don't take offence to my angry ducks…they mean no harm lol I was trying my hand at doing some sculpting
This bowl did not turn out like I wanted. That smear to the left was suppose to be much redder…but the red smear on the right looks great.
I love how this pitcher and cup set turned out …that red smear is what I was going for on the bowl.
Them are some deer on them there mugs…lol my boys loved these!
ugly mugs lol
My little tea cups …the v cut is for the tea string to hang over so it doesn't fall into your cup

Two truck loads of mulch down in the flower beds. (one more truck load is going to be needed I do believe)
Hubby working on another one of my yard projects…priceless!
New flowerbeds in process out by the pool…hammock included :) Something is going to fill this in in the middle and there is going to be a fire pit and comfy seating going around….
4 sweet baby Bantams hanging out in a cardboard box. Waiting to get big enough to go into their chicken condo! Wanting ducks but everywhere I go they are sold out of them!! Why the sudden rush on baby ducks people geeesh!! lol
The smell of an apple cake baking in the oven this morning. And the sound of my rooster crowing, makes for a great rural setting!!

And on to what seems to happen every spring as the weather begins to get nicer,we love it!! but nature seems to get a little grouchy about it! We had a F3 tornado come through our little town ( 2/29/12), and praise be that our home is safe. It missed or home by about a mile away. However some families were not as fortunate. It came through about 4 in the morning..people safely asleep in their beds..or so we thought….many hurt, 1 lost their life, lots of dead farm life.
