Goats

I have a thing for goats - well, I want 'a' goat. I know it's not possible, so it's fun just to say I want one. But, if I lived on a farm, I would have a little white goat. 

Goats are funny creatures - they will eat anything and they love to climb. I've heard stories from others who thought they wanted a goat until they got one. In most of those cases, they didn't keep their goat for reasons fore-mentioned. So far, these stories haven't dampened my desire for one.  These little guys just make me smile.

Pencil Sharpener

This was one of those random viral emails that was too good not to pass on. I think you'll agree.

The amazingly talented Dalton Ghetti, a carpenter by trade, devotes his free time to an extremely unique hobby - pencil art - taking used pencils, a razor blade, and a sewing needle to create tiny works of art.

For My Backyard

If I had one of these...


...I'd add a cute little bucket, a lovely towel, a bar of soap, and it would be fun to wash up
after working in the garden.

I Want One

Is this not just the cuttest little "a room of my own" cottage?  It makes me smile.

Extreme Makeover

How many times have I passed an old dilapidated house and thought of the possibilities? Many!  Not only do I think about what it could become, but I always wonder about the house when it was a 'home' - full of life and memories for a family.

A young couple (new baby young), in Jefferson, New York were brave enough to take on the extreme makeover of this 106 year-old farmhouse. Once a chicken farm, it had been well-worn. The last renovation had reconfigured the 6000 square foot structure into six apartments, but it had been setting empty and neglected for 25 years when the couple decided to make it their home.  Their bravery and vision are amazing.
