Mini Monsters!

These mini monsters are ready to travel! Mini monsters are a special breed. They enjoys camping out with friends and snacking on marshmallows. This listing includes the mini monster, his pillow, blanket and sleeping bag.

Each is hand knit and felted using fine quality wool and have sweet hand embroidered faces. These monsters' bags and pillows are made of cotton and is their preferred way of travel.
Easy to clean up because they can simply be smushed into their sleeping bag with their belongings.

I've gifted my nephews with these and they're the most convenient toy for children of all ages.

I've been doing some gardening!

To the left is sunflowers, soon-to-be 15' tall with some shorter ones mixed in to cover the taller stems and look full. Behind that is my cucumber teepee. It's shorter, but I chose bushing pickle-sized because I'm planning to learn how to make my own pickles. My brother gave me a copy of Liana Krissoff's CANNING for a New Generation and there are so many pickle recipes to try out. I'm probably leaning towards her Quicker Kosher Dills recipe for my first try.

The seedless grapes are on the far wall hanging on an upcycled trellis (made from an old glass door) and in front of that are several varieties of tomatoes, Thai basil, Greek oregano, English thyme, dill (for the pickling), parsley, lettuce, swiss chard, and sweet peppers. To the right is the raspberries and a "supersonic" tomato. The last "supersonic" I had a few years ago kept fruiting until October!

It's a small garden, but it feeds us all summer with enough to load up other family members too! There are no chemicals and it's mulched with grass clippings to keep it moist and keep the weeds out.

Do you garden? I've also been collecting so many gardening tips and ideas on Pinterest if you're on there.

Good Old Things

What is Spring good for?

I would have to say getting out to explore the simple things around me. In this case, I've had my eye on an abandoned house close by. It sits on private property so I don't want to share the exact name or location to assure it will remain free of vandals. 

I can't help but imagine the families who lived here and wonder why this old beauty was left to decay and have birds roost in the upper levels. When something interests me, I need to learn more about it and I did find out this farm was established in the 1870's by a wealthy tobacco manufacturer. The stables here were one of the dominant racing stables in the 1920's, bringing victories in both the Kentucky Derby and three Belmont Stakes. Today, the farmland around this structure is a self-sufficient stock farm, producing its own grain and supplying other farms as well. It is owned by a wealthy family who chooses to remain private and limit visitors. 

What are your thoughts? Have you been out exploring too?
