Pots Pots everywhere pots…

Spring has sprung in my little pottery room… my lovely spring poppies are in full bloom..these are by far my favorite!!DSC_6603 copyDSC_6618 copyDSC_6601 copy

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.

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!!

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake


  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I used vanilla yogurt)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbs. butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Mix ingredients in order given (except the last 3 ingredients).
  3. Pour batter into a 9×13 greased pan.
  4. Combine last 3 ingredients to make a topping and sprinkle it evenly over the batter.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes. It’s delicious when served warm!
  6. PS the vanilla yogurt totally makes this recipe!! Trust me if you got some use it!!


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.
