This was my Favorite project! Julie Nutting teaches her Oh SO Simple background techniques followed by paper tearing to produce this Lovely version of Snow White. Close to 50 woman in the class and no two works were the same! This is what I love! We are all handed the same items and yet...50 different works of ART! I am always AMAZED.
We were greeted by this Beautiful Dress form embraced in a Velvet Gown and Crown. Very Regal .
Tapestry and Damask pennates hung from the ceiling via golden cords..

Chirping and Splashing and waving those stumpy wings!
It was a PARTY ON THE PATIO! YES they are still on the PATIO..........

Like a Heard of TURTLES!
Judy, Kathy and I packed and on our way to LAKELAND!
We left the night before so we could be there at FIVE a.m. to set up!
It was dark and very cool, 56 to be exact!
We got it together and it started to look like something.
It was ALOT of work! But we shared ALOT of laughs...
The day turned out to be Beautiful, cool with a breeze.
And... there was no shortage of customers...Come to find out, over 200 vendors participated and THOUSANDS shopped!
The FANCY FLEA is advertised in ROMANTIC HOMES magazine and has become the third largest annual FLEA MARKET in the Nation.
The three of us did very well. I think we were all Happy with our sales.
Judy and I dressed the part! hehehehe!
Thanx to all our patrons for making this an excitingly successful weekend!

Mother Nature has her ways. We gave it our best try. She will be laid to rest in our families pet cemetary.
So now it's 25 hens and 3 ducklings...They all seem very healthy, extremely active and are sprouting feathers.
We have obtained a COOP plan and will begin shortly.

Three Ducklings have been added to the brood! They seem to be mingling well...
We have one runty, little Hen that needed some help...we woke up on DAY 2 and found her layed over on her side unable to stand! I decided to try feeding her with a syringe and for 2 days my son and I took turns force feeding every two hours... it was exhausting, but a LABOR OF LOVE...
Im HAPPY to report that on DAY 4 we woke to find Lil Bit standing in the feed trough pecking away! She's much smaller than her sisters but seems to be holding her own!
My Husband refers to her as THE PROMISE ONE...
By the way...they are still living in a blue, plastic swimming pool in my living room! COOP to come saith HE...
