About Me

My photo

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Natural Play

My little girl is a very physical being...she likes to fully experience things. And when it rains she loves to be out in it. She is especially fond of the down spout...it pours out into our dirt driveway and makes a river. I got to take quite a few photo's before she realized I was near.


Poem to Mud
Poem to mud -
Poem to ooze -
Patted in pies, or coating the shoes.
Poem to slooze -
Poem to crud -
Fed by a leak, or spread by a flood.
Wherever, whenever, whyever it goes,
Stirred by your finger or strained by your toes,
There's nothing sloppier, slipperier, floppier,
There's nothing slickier, stickier, thickier,
There's nothing quickier to make grown-ups sickier,
Trulier coolier,
Than wonderful mud.
-Zilpha Keatley Snyder


What a beauty...
