There's No Place Like Home

"He who plants a garden plants happiness"
~ Proverb

Last week I FINALLY got my hands dirty with a little gardening.  I'll show more pictures later.  This one was actually taken looking out my studio doorway before I even started weeding so please don't look to closely.   

I've been busy with orders and am also working on an update for Rabbit Hill.  Pretty sure it's going to be on Tuesday next week, May 4th I think?? 

My mom and I took a little trip to Lancaster County this past weekend and found some good things to sell.  Not as many as I would have liked because the weather was not cooperating and I think most of the vendors stayed home.  That didn't stop us though!  We shopped and shopped until my husband called to warn us of some bad storms coming our way....The wind began to switch the house to pitch; And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch; Just then the witch, to satisfy and itch; Went flying on her broomstick thumbing for a hitch!

I love that song, Can't stop now, grab your helium balloons and think munchkin voices....
The house began to pitch, the kitchen took a slitch
It landed on the wicked witch in the middle of a ditch
Which was not a healty situation for the wicked witch!

Driving home was not like that at all luckily.  Every time the weather started getting bad we'd go through a tunnel and like magic the other side was always clear and sometimes sunny.  It sure feels good to be back home today though.  Thanks for reading my silliness and have a happy Monday!

Such a beautiful garden photograph...looks as though Rabbit Hill suits you perfectly! I am delighted that you enjoyed a bit of time away with your mum. Time spent with our mothers will always remain special and dear.

Rest and sing your Munchkin song...I am certain that I shall (thank you kindly)!
Warmly, J
