Take a Look at the Nursery

Sorry, I have been busy during the holidays and haven't had a whole lot of time to blog, create jewelry or anything. I haven't even had time to ride the horses. I got on Sunday for about an hour but since the weather was soooo nice out here in Southeastern New Mexico. Hopefully I can get back into it! In the meantime we always start our nursery around this time and it is a fun time. Baby goats, Barbados and baby lambs. So far we just have nine baby goats and counting. At night they all huddle together under the heat lamp and it is so cute. I will get a picture of that tonight. Gracie wants all of them to come inside with her. Wouldn't that be fun! :)

Photos that will Capture you

I am having so much fun exploring on Etsy.com. I have bought several gifts for family on there and of course for me. I think I have bought more than sold more!!! "Go figure"!! I came across this lady (http://www.judemcconkey.etsy.com/) who does photography and the pictures just really took me to another place in time. They are almost haunting. I feel like maybe that is the direction she may be going in some of them and I think it is really cool. It inspired me to take those pictures of the graveyard gate and railroad. Of course there is a story to both those pictures. My mother played at both those spots, at the graveyard and on the railroad tracks, what memories she had!! lol. If anyone is at all interested you should check this etsy site out. It is just too cool! The Tapestry Trees is the one I think I will get for my In-laws. Hope they will like!

Gypsy Mare

This lady is absolutely talented, and I love her work. How I have always wanted to own one of these breeds. But hey, I want every kind of horse. I like them all. My daughter loves Unicorns . I think she needs to create a children's book or something that has her images in it. Like a Halloween book or a fantasy book with fairy's and unicorns and such. That would be
really cool. You should check out her site at http://www.gypsymarestudios.etsy.com/. You will love it and it will take you to a magical place.
