Just Sunday, we woke up to a winter wonderland.  Today? 70 degrees and we're putting up our homemade bluebird houses and thinking spring. Bluebirds are back and we are hoping they are interested in moving in one of our homemade houses. 

Now, this little hint of spring does a soul good, but a bit more of winter is promised in the great state of Maine. That's okay, for I'm not sick of the beauty of winter yet.


Art Fireside

Two things I love: doing art fireside and art made by little hands.  This is "The Demick Farm" for all my relatives. May drawing farm scenes always be his thing, for I don't think I ever will get tired of them.

This baby...

We all love this baby a little more everyday. 

And I love my baby dressed head to toe in handmades. <3

She's been the perfect addition to our family. 

"SOP" signs

Remember that challenge I did a few weeks ago? The one that I stated I wanted the kids to be outside a minimum of 3 hours a day, regardless of the weather?  We did the challenge. And now we are just continuing.  We've met that goal most days.  Definitely not at once many days, since it's still winter.  But going out side some in the morning, some in the afternoon and sometimes adds up. The other goal of the baby and me being outside with them daily too? Yup. Doing that. Except for my long work days, we're hitting that.  Today I went out for two walks with the kids (one doing some birding and one just because) and I pruned fruit trees with Anna-Kate on my back. 

Creativity is soaring too.  Audra says she can read and write and needs no one's help.  We apparently spell "stop" different ways. Hers doesn't need a 't', so I'm told.

So I present to you, "Sop Signs".  Make sure you stop if you see one!


Sometimes the no-fussy-stay at home-use whatcha got-just be together weekends are the ones I love most. 

Mama Made Applique Shirt

It's been a while since I've made him something.

Mama made applique shirt for my birder.  It could use a little ironing, but he doesn't care. I just sort of made it up, no pattern. He loves birds and he loves blue jays and now this is his favorite shirt.


Another vintage bowl. I know, I know.  I have a problem. And this miniature little set. They are half the size of my thumb. Thinking they'd go perfect in a teacup fairy garden. Anyone made one of those before?  Grand price: $5.00.
