Project #1 and Twins

Hi everyone! Ok, so in my last post I shared with you that I was working on a couple of projects. The first project I'm going to share with you, is one that I'm doing for a friend of mine. She is designing beautiful jewelry and has decided she wants to start selling it. We all know that once you decide to sell, you need somewhere, a place, a shop to sell your treasures. That's where I come in, I'm helping her to design her "shop".

Below is a picture of the new/old door to her shop. I know, it doesn't look like much......but give me a couple of days and I'll share with you how I transform it into a beautiful new door, most becoming of a new shop ;)

And now for the I didn't have another set of twins myself. My twin boys are enough for me. But we do have the sweetest new twins on the farm........

Here is the one I call Itty Bitty. She is the smallest of the pair, the runt, the little red head with spunk. She came right up to me yesterday and this morning. Albeit, there was a fence between us, cause momma is protective.

Here is her sister, as you can see they are not identical, :) And this little darling is quite a bit larger than her sister. This one the mother tends to favor. She is protective of both, but she is only allowing this little one to nurse. I don't know if it's because she doesn't have enough milk or what, but cowboy Justin, is now bottle feeding Itty Bitty. Of course, I volunteered to do the bottle feeding. When I was young and living on the ranch, I bottle fed all the calves the mommas didn't want. At one point, I had seven calves that I bottle fed, (it was more like a bucket with a nipple) I call this little darling, Fancy, because I fancy the color of her ;) I hope my landlord doesn't mind that I'm naming their calves ;)

Here is Itty Bitty and Fancy. I was trying to get a photo of them running around, but they would stop, almost like they were posing for me. Last year the mommas were bred with a Black Angus bull, so all of the calves looked the same. This time the mommas were bred with a Charolais Bull, that I of course named Charlie, and the calves are beautiful!

Until Later,

Happy Valentine's Day

Wishing all of my friends in blogland.....

Happy Valentine's Day

I know I haven't been around for awhile or posted lately. My sweet dad has been ill and was in the hospital for awhile. He's staying with my sister, but is very fragile. It is so hard being 600+ miles away. He is supposed to be moving in with me, but right now we are just taking it day by day.

I have been working on a couple of projects that I will be sharing later this week. One is a project that I'm doing with a friend and I'm excited about it because it shows my imagination side, which in this case is a good thing :) the other is an update on an item I actually traded for, which means free, I love that part.

I will have photos later this week.

Until Later,
