Mother's day gifts

I love to get Mother Day gifts...
from YARD sales!
So here is what I got...
some shoe forms and twine.  What can I say,
 I LOVE twine!

Tart pans with pretty roses.  I may make some tarts
 or NOT
and just put these on display some where in my kitchen.

These are Shaker boxes that Butter found.
  I may paint them white (?)
the best of all...

if you can't tell it is an old steam register heater . 
 I took the picture when it was still in the back of Butter's truck because it is
 and I didn't want to move it by myself. 
We used the tractor to off load it and
 put it in the mud room for now. 
See the beautiful details!
I will be cleaning it up and painting it white.
I have a spot picked out already in my home.
I will post the finished project when completed.

Chicken waterer

I  love the farmhouse style.
I love using found objects.
Like this chicken waterer...
I had it in the barn.
After seeing an idea, on a blog or Pinterest (I can't remember where), I decided to do it.
Unfortunately I don't have any Hydrangeas plants...  

so silk ones have to work.

I love it!

Sorry I have been away.  Spring is calling me and I have been outside getting the raised vegetable beds ready for planting.  Here in Wyoming we don't start till we know that it is not going to frost.  Last year there were a lot of gardens started over because of a late frost.
Since I am in the spring mood, I thought that I would do a little project for inside our farm house.
So I had this little wooden box, I think it came from a yard sale,
then I found some cute dairy bottles at Michaels that fit in the box perfectly.

The box needed to be white of course!
After the first coat of white paint.  The pheasant picture covered up nicely.

So after a couple of more coats of paint I placed in the bottles with some daisies.
I am happy how it looks...

A nice touch of spring time.

The Easter Egg

 the resurrection
 of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
"As the bird emerges from it's shell, so did Jesus from His tomb"

These twelve eggs are not decorated but are numbered. 
Each tells a parts the Easter story.
These eggs we hide on Sunday
then when all twelve are found
we look inside to hear the Easter story....
1.And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and praying saying. o my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Matthew 26:39
*Sacrament cup (a small cup)*
2. Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, and said unto them, what will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you?
  And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Matthew 26:14-15
*three dimes* 
3.  When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death; and when they had bound him, they led him away and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the Governor.
Matthew 27:1-2
*piece of rope*
4.When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was make, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying "I am innocent of the blood of this just person, and said "His blood be on us and on our children."  Then released he Barabbas unto them. And when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
Matthew 27:24-26
5.And they stripped him. and put on him a scarlet robe.  And when they had platter a crown of thorns, they put in upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"  And they spit upon him, took the reed and smote him on the head.
Matthew 27:28-30
*red fabric and thorns*
6. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.  And as they come out, they found a man to Cyrene, Simon by name: Him they compelled to bear his cross.
Matthew 27:31-32
*cross and nail*
7.And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet...and sitting down they watched him there.
Matthew 27:35-36
8. Jesus, when he had cried again with a low voice, yielding up the ghost. And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent....now when the centurion, they that saw the earthquake, and those things were done, they feared greatly, saying, truly this was the Son of God.
Matthew 27:50-51,54
9.Then Joseph, a rich man. went to Pilate and begged for the body of Jesus,  Then Pilate commanded that body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped in it a clean linen cloth, and laid Him in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock.
Matthew 27:58-60
*linen cloth*
10.And he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed,  Pilate said unto them, (the chief priests and Pharisees) Ye have a watch; go your way, make it as sure as ye can,  So they went and made the sepulcher sure, sealing the stone and setting the watch.
Matthew 27;60, 65-66
11. And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet  spices, that they might come and anoint him.  And behold, there was a great earthquake; for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.  And the angel said into the women, fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified
Mark 16:1; Matthew 28:2,5
