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 morning...as 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 face...it 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 project....no 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:)

Again...here is the lovely address for my homestead:)

But do not forget.... you will receive a present in the mail if you send little old meadow me Handkerchiefs or string:)

So...I check my mail box daily and simply glow when I receive your gift of handkerchiefs:)


ok...I had to say it one more time so it would stick in your head:)

Did you know I love you? I kiss each of your foreheads my kindred spirits :)

Apples That Grew:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures whom help me collect firewood for the winter & the funny little Gnomes who woke me up this morn with Hot Cocoa (gosh I love hot cocoa)..

Miss Lamb your changing with the seasons farmer here:)

Well, we have made it through Earthquakes, Tornadoes & Floods in the last 48 hours...I am not even joking as crazy as it sounds:)

...& I am creating lots of art of course:)

....& I had a bit of fun with my new Bio picture:)

All of my bio pictures crack me up because I always seem to be on the brink of laughing... I just cant help it:)

I keep on freaking myself out though in the mirror every time I catch myself in it.... Got myself really good two night ago when I was letting out one of the dogs and checking on the cows... It was very late... I went back inside & heard the door open on the other side of the house.... I crept into the other room and turned the corner to only jump out of my skin when I saw red hair... but it was just me:)

I am looking forward to working very hard on my pieces for a show I have coming up at Cuppies & Joe on the 18th of Nov.:)

It is harvest themed :)

You should come:) it lasts from 6-10 pm:)

Did you know that I love you?:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, Handsome meadow creatures who sing from the barn rafters & those hilarious Gnomes who picked me a whole tree of apples....sadly, it was not my tree:)

I guess it is the thought that counts:)

As many of you know, it was a tough loss at Early Bird Acres when the coyotes got all of my chickens and ducks, but with joy, there have been some new babys hatched:)

Welcome to the world baby chicks:)!!

I have been having a lot of fun with my instagram (my handler name is earlybirdacres) ....a few fun captures of the babies:)

Girl Like The Orchard, Orchard Like The Girl

Hello my Darlin Dears, the smart meadow creatures who have been harvesting and keeping seeds and those oh so kind Gnomes who helped me plant potatoes today:)

Miss Lamb your ground tilling farmer here:)

So....I have been hard at work on a little project my darlin dears:)

It is part installation and part gallery show:)

"Girl Like The Orchard, Orchard Like The Girl"

A 7ftx7ftx7ft square, made of whole branches of polished Red Cedar, will be covered in multiple colors of string....thousands upon thousands of feet of string:) In addition, over 3 thousand handkerchiefs will cover the lengths of string:) A large pillar of antique light bulbs will be set in the center to create a pulsating glow of morning-light that will back-light the antique and loved on Handkerchiefs :) This structure will also be scattered with antique magnifying glasses of various colors and sizes:) Makes you look a bit closer ;)

It is all growing and such...& the shows shall be kept quiet until they draw a bit closer:)

...But....I need more HANDKERCHIEFS!!:)

If you have any antique Handkerchiefs, please send them my way:)
