Forgot to mention...

Hey y'all,

   I forgot to mention that I am very excited about an opportunity that God presented me with!  My hubby got me a 8x10 paper mold for Christmas and I have been fooling around with making paper. Well I made some lavender bookmarks, they are purple with dried lavender in them. Someone saw them on my etsy site and asked me to make her 150 for her upcoming wedding!!!! Never thought that would happen!! So I hope it's just the beginning!!

Where I have been and Hummingbirds

Hey y'all, I sure have missed ya! it seems time between my posts gets longer and longer! Things have been crazy busy around here! I am now working part time, and in between that, starting seeds and trying to keep them from freezing in our mountain temps here, it snowed the other day!! I think spring and winter got their info mixed up this year.

     I am still planning on blogging about my life in a camper, I will have a lot to write about next time, I need pictures first. We have had a horrid ant problem for a while now, and there seems to be a mouse that gets in the storage compartment under our bed at night of all times, and starts making an awful racket that sounds like he is a drummer in a hard rock band!! And banging on the walls and poison does  not phase him, I think he likes it! So, anyway, I hope to have lots of pictures and posts in the days and weeks to come, sorry it's been so long! I will leave you today with some pictures I took of our returning hummingbirds that decided to come back a week early just in time for the cold snap!

The enchanting Blue Ridge Mountains I call home.


About Me

My photo
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, in a little camper, with my husband and family. We are trying to become self sufficient and live off the land. I am sick of all the sad news on TV, the economy, and the evil world we live in, so we are trying to make things as simple as possible and get back to the basics. I think if everyone did that, and had faith in God the world might be a better place. Follow along, as we live life in our little tin can, and try to make it a home, while learning to homestead.
