New Beginnings: Life And Lessons of a Farm

Hello my wonderful Darlin Dears, Meadow creatures that sing & the Gnomes who face the dawn with a love of whole-wheat pancakes and sweet milk as I do,

Miss Lamb your...well..farmer here:)

In memory of my sweet chickens and ducks, whom the coyote (or possible bob cat) has claimed all but two chickens now....I went and took a few captures...

It is called..

"The Circle Around My Waist"

...The chickens and ducks always seemed to appreciate a Bucolic scene as much as I do:) They themselves were a Bucolic scene...

They will be available at Indie Emporium this weekend... & I believe I shall set out a small jar for donations for a new flock...ya gotta start somewhere:)

I have been told by my other local farmers that due to the drought, the coyotes and some bobcats have been coming closer and closer to our other food...

Maybe I should fence in my entire farm and get a Miniature Donkey to protect the chickens now..

The dogs were to scared to meander around my farm last night, & I accidentally fell asleep....

But, I at least had the opportunity to know them:)

I miss you chickens..

Ooohhh I have so many more captures to....

For those of you who have ever visited the farm, you know how lovable they were:) Thank you for being my friends little ones:)

I hope you all have a really lovely day:)

From the farm of Life and Learning:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, The meadow creatures who stay vidual in the night & the sweet Gnomes whom are currently entertaining the lone duck on the farm,

Miss Lamb your white pumpkin picking darlin farmer here,

Ooohhh life...

No matter how long I carry on with this thing called farm life, it is never easy when something bad happens...

As all of you know, I use this place as a personal diary, a place to display art, a space to tell people that no matter what happens it is going to be ok, and a place to let a little more light into every sweet old life in this sweet old world...

Strange enough, I had a dream yesterday night about a group of ducks and chickens being born, and me being very upset because I was trying to save all of them from wolves...

Sadly Enough, I returned home to the farm after being gone for two days while teaching in OKC, and I found all but one duck had been taken from this world, and 5 chickens... including our adorable and loved silkie named appropriately "Love"...he was a adorable rooster who crowed with all of his body...

It was a known fact it was Coyotes...

I found their prints in the mud just outside of the barn yard...broke my heart..

Here is the kicker...I also love the Coyote...

I know it is just feeding it's young... Fearless females that trek over farm land and face gun over gun...

This is not the first time and it is not the last...

What I am taking away from this is a simple fact..there is a circle of life.. a farmer it is adorned to my waist...wraps around my chest....leaves my mouth wet or dry...Adorned around every curve of curl on my head... least I knew them while they were here:) I sure did love you ducks and chickens:)


I have been working hard on getting ready for Indie Emporium coming up next weekend in lovely Tulsa, & goodness gracious I have come up with some lovely things for you folks:)

Here are some lovely Magnifying glasses I made myself:) The handles are covered in vintage fabric (The gnomes helped of course)...

They are ready for all of your flower hunting and page meandering needs:)

Of course Cotton could not stay away:)

He really could not stop starring :) It was adorable:) He is currently asleep on the pages now:)

Hold your pets close my loves... unconditional love is something of heaven :)

I look forward to seeing all of you Tulsa folks in a few days:) Ooohh I am over the moon and back to the morn excited:) Wait till you see the new prints and such:)

I love you...& you know that,

Yours Truly,

Handmade Doughnuts, Cinnamon Rolls & Hot Cocoa cuddle time with my pups,
