Somebody got a haircut. It's Smidge. Smidge got a haircut, and now she's feelin' cute and sassy!
We went to our first ever Pride event last night (a drag show). It was so much fun! We're looking forward to going again next year, too. The place was full, and I had to ask a group if we could sit at their table; they said yes and spent the evening talking to us … Continue reading Pride!
I wandered into Big Lots yesterday after getting a haircut, and they're having a big sale - 35% off mostly everything! I found this beautiful glass hanging birdbath and decided to add it to the bird feeders on my porch. It's so pretty! It was less than $10 on sale!

Dollar Tree – gnome garden
I've started crafting a little here and there again, and I've realized something. Craft supplies are expensive! A new trend I've noticed is crafters buying supplies/repurposing items from Dollar Tree to keep costs down, and it works! I couldn't find any premade gnome gardens or fairy gardens online. I think due to their fragility that … Continue reading Dollar Tree – gnome garden
Dresser to a dollhouse
I hate that I can't credit the person who originally took this photo, but it's been shared online so many times that I couldn't track the original poster down. I saw it when Tina over at The Rusted Barn shared it on her Facebook page. I think this is such a great gift idea though … Continue reading Dresser to a dollhouse
Genetics in the herd
It is AMAZING how much genetics can carry over from a parent to offspring. Just look at Chip's two sons! Son 1 (8 months old) Son 2 (also 8 months old) Chip earlier this summer (2 years, 4 months old) If you notice, both bull calves have no horns.
