creative may


howdy! sorry i’ve gone m.i.a. again.

between gardening & commissioned art ~ i have been quite busy!

i hope you are having a lovely & creative may!

here are a few recent fun projects…

honoring a big old tree in the front yard {that will mostly likely need to come down very soon}

i planted wildflower seeds around it & whipped up this rustic driftwood star…


i had lots of fabric scraps & some old jewelry pieces

so i made up~cycled brooches for mother’s day gifts…


i {finally} made my first “surprise ball” for a friend’s birthday {it was so much fun!}

i’ll show you that later ~ after they open it.


a big seller last year in my barren river emporium shoppe 

were the forest findings that i collected in the woodlands around le homestead.

unfortunately i didn’t get a chance to collect as much this year ~ but i’ve been putting more sets

together & they should be available in the shoppe in a day or two!

they’re perfect for natural crafts or for filling a vase, bowl, or dish…


here’s a collage of pics from my BIG project – Le Garden 2012!


it is a big job but so rewarding.  i have our main garden almost all planted

& gotta get cracking on the  melon/squash/pumpkin/gourd garden!

happy creating!
