Getting the Potter's Shed ready!

Sweet Ladies!!!!!

Talk about has been so wonderful as far as my gardening and chickens! 

The other day we were with some friends who have been dorm parents and are leaving in two weeks on a new adventure. We invited them for dinner last night. Talk about a sweet time! 

Earlier in the day our daughter Taylor made her favorite rolls that we would use for our evening meal. I thought maybe you might want the is super easy....especially if  you need rolls in a hurry! No Knead Dinner Rolls  Our meal was simple

Homemade rolls (shaped like hamburger rolls)
lunch meat (each piece rolled on a plate)
Salad/Olive Garden dressing
Pink lemonade or sweet tea
and sweet fellowship!!!!!

Super easy!!!!!!! I can't stress my self out on elaborate meals. Not that I wouldn't want to, I just wouldn't have families over if I had to do that!!!!!

I went out to the Potter's Shed and started cleaning. I had such a sweet time out there. My little Henny Penny and Mr. Roo were on a little stroll as she was scratching her some buggie food. They talked and talked at me! You can see her coming out of this little cubby hole where I have window panes. She would go in.....he would go in......she would come out.....he would come out......they did that for quite sometime and I could hear them clucking with one another! I enjoyed their company!!!! Chickens can truly be your pets!

There was a lot of sweeping to do because the Potter's Shed is right next to the horse corral. We love it that horses are near! I got that done and made these little lamps for the table and around the shed. 

I took the top of a solar outdoor light and placed it on top of a large mouth jar that I get from the college. Adorable!!!!!! My sweet man helped with the CHRISTmas lights so we had plenty of lighting.

Now for the bugs! I was given two of these Tiki lights for my birthday.......they would come in handy. Couldn't believe how well they worked! Perfect for all the bugs that have been around the farm since there has been so much rain.

Here are a few of the things I did to fix up the outside and inside. Added some fake geraniums to the bike......

spruced up the bow on Missy Angel....

took some of my little antique clay pots and put tea lights inside........

we were ready for company!

Tressa bought me adorable plastic goblets on sale at target....we used our tin floral plates.......simple! 

My sweet man prayed over the family! That the Lord would use them mightily for His purposes......what a sweet gift for all of us!

We need to cultivate is important!

Hugs to your day and God bless you all reallllll good!

  12. You have such a beautiful family. I wish I were close. I would love to visit you. Our yard is dirt and weeds and I am not sure when we will have the budget for anything else! Sigh! I planted some different flowers from sees and a few of them are doing well. SO my little tiny planters on the front have a little green color! LOL!
    We do have that new kitten and he is a real pistol! He is giving poor Rose a run for her money! LOL! She keeps him in line though.
    My sister came thru the surgery well. I pray she can stay healthy now and not have to worry about all those medical bills! Always something in our lives.
    Good to see you here. Hugs Anne
