SILK EYE PILLOWS

I have finished some Some Silk Eye Pillows,  They are filled with flax and lavender.  SOothing for tired eyes.  The silk is hand dyed, and they is available in size small and medium at the show or from me directly.

MAKE DO

Another project gone from the dining room table.  A blanket that my Dad always kept in his car.  It kept kids warm, was used for picnics covered fresh veggies and many more things.  It’s a nothing special blanket probably acrylic but the memories held in it are more precious than all the money in the world.    My Dad was a caring person who always thought of others before himself  always watching over his family and friends like a Shepard watches over his flock. 

After years of wear and being stored it had some holes in it.  I cut it up and the cats will use some of it in their beds and I will use large piece in my car.

We live in a throw away society today.  There are things that have to be thrown away, i do my best to recycle and repurpose things. My family always repaired things and used them up this went back for generations its hard to break that old of a habit. 

EGGS

I have heard that in some states eggs are being rationed because of the avian flu.  I am always grateful for having my chickens.  They have given me so much more that I could give them.  Eggs and Entertainment!!!!!
