The Bees Knees!!:) Part II

Hello my Darlin Dears, those comical meadow creatures who adore watching the steam billow off my coffee and the sweet Gnomes who tried to make me some Granola, but did not realize that I am not a huge fan of tree bark,

Miss Lamb your Apple Pie achieving farmer here,

Do you know what I love?

I love Bees Knees !!1

As promised, here are some more captures of my new friends having a lovely time around the farm… All captures were taken by the amazing Brandon:)

I had made a large pot of Chicken noodle soup, an apple pie & fancy baked Mac and cheese (I stole the name millionaire macaroni from my friend Cor ). I think it was a success :)

We made cards…

We saw farm machinery and Animals and I was happier than a peach that the whole group fed an apple to one of the animals..

I hope that all of you go and do your part to Support Bees Knees… I think I am going to go and buy a calendar :)

I send a kiss to each of your foreheads

I love you!!! (Said with blowing kisses)

Magnifying glasses, apples and knowing that someone loves you

Lovely Ladies and Time:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, my oh so anwry meadow creatures who continue to try to steal my beer bread (especially those bears…they love beer bread) & the Gnomes, who wrapped up Birch the bear cub and put him under the tree, all because I said I enjoyed baby bears…it was comical to see Birch perpetually clawing out of the wrapping paper and the Gnomes trying to hide it,

Miss Lamb here your meadow brained farmer here,

As many of you already know, I am lucky enough to be a momentum spotlight artist this year, and with that, my dream Handkerchief world will be created in the lovely Downtown OKC Farmer Market Building.

I am also in the process of creating lots of new artwork…

A large portion of the series is about the comparison of a Girl and an Orchard… I just adore femininity and of the curves and curls us as women posses… I also love pairing the smooth gears and gleam of a pocket watch to the soft floral patterns of a pocket watch. It basically sings the melody of what I am trying to achieve.

Time has a lovely curve my Darlin Dears…

Here are a few of the pocket watches…. & I am working on the titles…

Which is your favorite?:)

I also have a friend visiting later this week, and one of our main activities will be collecting large logs, in which I will cut apart with my chainsaw (yes you Blind Lumberjack… be ready… I hope you brought your flannel)…

Did you know that I love you folks?

I really do…

I send some sunshine to each of your windowsills

Light, Cotton and the chill of winter mornings paired with hot cocoa,

So Far, But Always Near

Helllllooooo my sweet Darlin Dears, those handsome meadow creatures who are making homes in my Christmas tree and wreaths & those hilarious gnomes who stayed up all night and made self portraits out of sugar cookies & fed me some sort of tree sap when I could sleep do to my horrible cold,

Miss Lamb your fancy baked Mac and cheese farmer here (with my own cheese of course!!)

Well, I was happier than a peach to return home from my OKC/Tulsa adventure to find a whole pickup cab full of packages (the lovely and amazing mail woman ran out of room in the mailbox, so she filled up the cab of my old white Chevy with packages and letters)

Ohhhh so sweet letters…

Amazing cards full of glitter (yes…you got me back Miranda….Glitter is all over my dinning room and on Harold)

Over 700 Handkerchiefs!!! Yes…700…I stayed up and counted them:)

…& my favorite package, because it came with an adorable message :)

…& A Wendell Berry book from my Amazon wish list sent to me from a secret admirer (who ever you are out there, thank you….I appreciate your kind gesture)

Communication is a lovely thing…in addition, even the lack of communication can be a good thing…there is nothing I adore more than meeting up with one of my friends I have not seen in ages and catching up with life and such…Smiles that can illuminate a room and laughs that add a whole new echo to every corner:) Living in a cottage far away from any of my friends makes this scenario play out often…

For Christmas, I wanted to write a few words for a few of my best friends in this sweet old world..

The Lovely Jenny…

Ooohhh my writing friend…oh my best friend…. Well, we do have matching tattoos☺ You surprise me around every turn… you seem to know your friends better than they know themselves, and I am overjoyed you are in my life ☺ I miss you all the time and I am glad we both liked Minus The Bear :)

The Amazing Caitlin…

You my dear are the hardest worker I know. You love your friends and family very well and are willing to sacrifice anything you posses for them. We are going to miss you when you leave for your internship, but what a better opportunity to have a team birthday meet-up in a foreign country!!:)

The inspiring Sam….

How is it possible, in this sweet old world, someone can be so tried and true… True, with Miss Crain, is the key word. I have known you the longest out of most of my good friends, and since the second we met, you have made me see the truth in myself and everything around me. I look forward to our many years together and just know that I am always here for you (I hope you liked my cheesy speal☺

I really do, as sure as the morn, love you ladies:)

Egg Nog, Barrels of Apples (or peaches) & Spreading the holiday cup of Cheer,

Miss Lamb your flannel wearing and meadow mind farmer here:)

This past lovely Sunday, I was lucky enough to host Bees Knees here at Early Bird Acres:)

We had a mini Christmas party:)

I can not tell you how much my pups liked this lovely crowd of people:) Especially Harold:)

Harold wore his Christmas collar the whole day:) & I do not think he will ever realize he is to big for laps:)

Here is Ali & Harold:)

I promise to post more captures very soon:) I was having such a fun time with my new friends I had forgot to take a bunch of captures, but the amazing Brandon did and I shall grab his:)

I send a kiss to each of your foreheads:)

Time has a curve my Darlin Dears:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, furry meadow creatures that breath heavy from warm caves in the mountains just a few miles from my cottage and those comical gnomes who I believe are planning a barn dance or simply just stockpiling barrel upon barrel of applejack :)

Miss Lamb your egg collecting farmer here:)

As of late, I have been very busy getting ready for many a lovely show:)

I shall keep my plans for 2012 a bit quite until my need is just to great and I haft to say something, but I am currently creating a few new pieces to finish out my pieces for an Installation...a large installation...I am doing in march, and a solo show I am doing in February at Visions:)

Here is a lovely new piece:)

"Time Has A Curve"

Ooooohh I am so excited about these shows:) & preparing for a show in lovely Chicago and then later in the year, if it all pans out, Europe :)

If you notice, there is a lovely Handkerchief in this capture:) a lovely lovely Handkerchief that was given to me about a year ago from one of my oohhh so kind blog readers:)

I am telling you Darlin Dears...send me your lovely Handkerchiefs!!:)

Just last Saturday, I received a large package of about 37 Handkerchiefs from one of you ooohh so kind dears, and I had a lovely time creating a makeshift care package for them...I even put some hot cocoa I made in there:)

So again, if you have any Pastoral Handkerchiefs or string, send it my way:) I can not tell you everything about the project and world I am creating (because that just spoils the surprise) but it means a lot to me...the world and a half:)

Home Sweet Home, away from home:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, the rather chubby meadow creatures who are stocking up for future storms & those comical Gnomes who are visiting from the forests of Oregon & brought 3 bushels of apples (It was basically a hint saying "Hey...we want an apple pie Miss Lamb!!)

This is Miss Sam Lamb your meadow brained farmer here:)

As I have mentioned before, my lovely friend Erin Austin is staying with me for the lovely month of December:)

I want her to have a lovely Christmas when she can't be with her family for the holidays, so I threw in my home and meadow ideas to help host a dinner for some of Erin's friends from all around:)

Here are a few captures from our preparation:)

The lovely Table:)

.....With amazing table name things that Erin had:)

(you like that? Table name things?)

......& before my lovely washer broke, we washed nearly everything in my house:) & here is a random pile of blankets & such:)

Here is our pre-party outfits:)

It is not possible to be a girl and not take captures of yourself in the mirror before a lovely dinner:)
(come on folks...I am taking this lovely girl time for all it is worth!!)

My tradition during Christmas is to also drink Cold Duck:)

....only Andre for this classy girl:)

The next day we had a lovely day of baking, farming, garden tilling & chicken coop cleaning:) my favorite part of the day though was being able to wake up in the morn, make some coffee, and sit around and talk with the girls:) In addition, Harold joined in:)

I hope you folks have a very lovely Monday and I send a kiss to each of your foreheads:)

Did you know that I love you?:)

A horse named Emmy Lou, drinking coffee & a semi blind lumberjack :)

Milk & Honey my loves:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, furry bears of the Forrest and those comical Gnomes who keep stealing every cookie I try to bake for friends and family (so yes...that is why you have no cookies yet folks...I promise:)

Miss Lamb your honey harvesting and cow milking farmer:)

A long long time ago, I was in college....

....during my time in college, I was required by the higher powers of this Forest of buildings to do an internship:)

A woman by the name of Lissa Hatcher took little old Sam Lamb under her wing:)

This past summer, Lissa came to visit me at Early Bird Acres, and she took some captures of meadow brained me:)

...& this is what came of it:)

Hahaha:) I just had so much fun on this shoot:)

you folks should go and look at some of her captures right here:)

I send a kiss to each of your foreheads my darlin dears:)

I sure as the!

Baking Powder Drop Biscuits :)

Hello my Darlin Dears, my furry Meadow Creatures & The Oh so kind Gnomes who helped me catch the cows this morn when they got out,

Miss Lamb your oh so busy and baking farmer here:)

As part of my random Recipie collection here at Early Bird Acres, I am posting my favorite family Recipe for Baking Powder Drop Biscuits :)

Here is what you shall need:)


2 cups of Spelt Flour (or bread flour if you do not have it:)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 cup chilled butter, diced very well
1 cup whole milk

Here is how you perform this lovely magic:)


*Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

*Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl. I sift it all together multiple times (ladies and gents...a flour sifter is your best friend:)

* Cut in the cold butter with a knife. I actually shave the very cold butter so it will be as fine as possible.

* Add milk a little at a time, stirring lightly between additions.

*Drop the batter by spoonfuls into a muffin pan, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the tops are golden. I like mine slightly more doughy inside, so I usually turn off the heat around 10 minutes and let them bake with the oven door open for the last two or so...(I know...Random...but it works)...

I make a classic sausage, biscuits and gravy with these...but you my darlin dears can add maple syrup to make them sweet or cranberries to make them festive:) Your choice:)

Did you know that I love you?:)

Maple Syrup, Epic Trees & the bears that took me as their own,

A Story upon Story Upon Story:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, Wonderful meadow creatures who serve as a bit of color to the bare trees of fall & those oh so kind Gnomes who invited me to their own thanksgiving feast:)

Miss Lamb your cider pressing farmer here,

I hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving :) I sure did....friends, family & a rather charming adventure out for waffle house hot cocoa:)

The year my darlin dears is coming to a close, and the many lovely days of 2012 are lining up to be very dreamy....i will be the meadow age of 27 this January, and Oooohh how the holidays make you reflect:)

Many a story am I looking forward to though:)

Story my owl continues to return to the old pecan tree on the side of the house...a lot more than usual as of late...nearly every night:) She will even sing into the if she is trying to replace the void that my rooster left:)

I have a story I get to create at many a lovely gallery.... some stories with intricate hearts... Some with thousands of Handkerchiefs...some with simple wildflower seeds:) What a blessing to be able to work with a park...create a story there:)

...& then their is a life story....I can't help but think about that story...I am a young girl with a cottage on my mind:)

When I say cottage, I mean an ideal of a cottage:) Being a single girl, I think about how I want to fill that cottage:)

I had a dream last night of an individual... Heck...ok...I had a dream about a dreamy future husband...but I could not see his was more of an impression...this individual basically transfered my emotions into a landscape around the farm:) He built me a flower garden, a vegetable garden, a stable & a new barn with a hay loft... all out of love:) Someone who cares not only for you, but what you care about:)

Someone I can bake for:)

But that is the joy... That is the peach...being able to think of things like that:)

It is all derived from inspiration...& it all is lovely rain for inspiration:)

A perpetual spring my darlin dears:)

Ooohhh goodness gracious... I adore Orchards:)


In the next few days, I hope to update you all on what I am creating for the lovely Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar:)

It is Dec. 10th...a lovely Saturday:)

I look forward to showing you all of my projects I am working on...Gnome homes, new prints & framed captures:)


Did you know that I love you?:) I kiss each of your foreheads:)

Story the owl, Autumn morns & baby chicks,

A Small Dream Come True:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures who sing always at the right moment and those hilarious gnomes who threw a impromptu barn dance last night,

Miss Lamb your cottage adorned farmer here:)

Ooohhhh my sweets...

Something magical has happened....

Something wonderful has been given to me...

Goodness Gracious I am Honored and soooo excited:)

I have the honor of being a momentum spotlight artist come this March:)!!

You may ask what that means:) Well, just go right here and find:)

What this means for me though is that I get to create my dream world of Handkerchiefs, honey & light for hundreds of people:)

Yap yap yap....I must say, I am happier than a peach:)

& just today I received many a lovely package from across the U.S. of Handkerchiefs :) From a sweet Georgia peach to a girl of the ocean in California, the handkerchiefs as sure as the day made me smile:)

Given this opportunity in March, I as more than ever need your help.... the simple help of Handkerchiefs :)

I want to make this small world of mine very epic, and that means lots of Handkerchiefs:)

In addition, you can send me twine, cord and string of every color for another facet of the thick yarn, but everything else will work fine:)

I might be asking for a few more things in the near future, but for now send me your Handkerchiefs:)!!!



By the end of this, you might get a tad bit tired of my talk about Handkerchiefs and such.... but I shall keep pursuing you all none the less:) The world I have in my brain simply needs to come to life....& once it does, I can not wait to share it all with you right here on the Early Bird Acres Journal of Meadow Meandering:)

Just last evening, I took these captures:) A small bed of Handkerchiefs for the last of the seasons honey:)

So yes.....even if you can not give me any Handkerchiefs, maybe you can blog about my need for Handkerchiefs...I would be honored if you did that:) is the lovely address for my homestead:)
