Hi friends, This is going to be a potpourri when it comes to posts and blog parties! You see, so many to do so little time right now. Here we have little Calista modeling the St. Patty's Day outfit her Grandma bought for her. I don't do much in the way of decorating for St. Patrick's Day but I wanted to join Cuisine Kathleen for her St. Patrick's Day blog crawl.
And look how happy Calista is to be joining in! This little girl comes by it naturally as she has a good deal of Irish in her!
We even made sure to get a pic of her little shamrock behind!
My friend Marty ( A stroll thru life) is also having a blog party! Cloches are hard for me so I just added some Easter grass, eggs and a ribbon to this apothecary jar. Along with some bunnies that are driving my little grand-daughter Addison crazy, ( she wants to play with them) .
I also realized that I really only have one real cloche and it's this wire one. Now before Marty's next party I need to do some serious cloche shopping! This vignette features a pear tree under my one and only cloche, a floral arrangement and a pair of vintage WWII binoculars. Heck I only paid a buck for them at an auction and they still work really well.
I am thrilled to say we are getting some unusually warm weather here. All of the snow has melted and we are supposed to be in the mid-seventies on Wednesday!
The deer have been very busy in our yard! I can only hope it stays nice but honestly it's only March and we still get snow sometimes in March. Now please go visit our lovely hostesses and have a wonderful week everyone! Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
