Friend Making Monday!

Amber over at aefilkins - for all the 'OMG' moments in life! is doing a Friend Making Monday and I wanted to join in ;o)

1. Favorite thing about Spring? I love to see all the new life coming out...the baby animals, green plants and flowers poking up through the ground, new buds on all the trees, and people everywhere going outside to enjoy the nice weather.

2. What am I doing for Spring break? I'm sending our girls to grandma's house and my hubby and I are going fishing and camping...can't wait!

3. Favorite Spring flower? Would definitely have to be tulips ;o)

4. Do you have a garden? Yes I do! AND I started working in it yesterday. I love to see the progress of cleaning up old plants, weeds, leaves and such...it's such a breath of fresh air!

(Last years garden)

5. If so, what do you grow? Lots of vegetables...but mostly stuff that produces a lot, so I can put it up for the winter. We have plans for green beans, peas, cauliflower, corn, beets, potatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? I'm in that mode right now!

7. What is your weather 'really like' right now? Well...since I live in Montana, we can have 70s one day and the next 5 in. of snow...LOL! But today it is clear skies, sunny, WINDY, and 41 degrees.

8. Whats your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? Work in the yard and/or garden ;o)

9. Favorite TV show right now? We don't have cable but we have Netflix.

Cabin Fever!

On a little island in Alaska lives a sleepy little town. And if you take the right gravel road in that little town it will lead you to one of the most warm and welcoming places in the world! One of my favorite spots is this little cabin that has been fixed up...it's so cute I want to MARRY it!!!!

Come on in and enjoy yourself!

I'm sure you can tell, this one room cabin doesn't have any insulation in the walls, BUT it has this super cute wood stove to keep things warm and cozy ;o) And yes, that is a giant saw blade the stove is sitting on...

A cozy little corner for corresponding or enjoying a cup of tea with a friend...

The door that leads out to the covered porch...

Lots of cozy quilts and pillows, a GREAT place to read your favorite book or to take a nap...

A view of the covered porch that also has a view of the ocean!

Thanks for taking this tour with me, I hope you enjoyed it!

Farmhouse Fresh

It has finally arrived! The strawberry tray...my first Etsy purchase!!! I'm in LOVE ;o) I have been looking at this forever and finally decided to buy it, I'm so glad I did!

The tulips were on sale at Safeway, first time I have bought myself flowers...LOL! My daughter kept asking who the flowers were for ;o)

I love this little table-scape. It makes me want to bake a pie and then go work in the garden and maybe then milk a cow....just sayin'!
