This and That

There are a few things we need to discuss,

so let's do it now, shall we?

This way we can start the week off with a clean slate.


Thank you for all the lovely comments about how cute I am,

with date filled layers, made by my stalker aka mom, is not me.

For the record, I'm not blonde, and I'm not quite as tall. She has long legs, while I 

was blessed with shall we say a shorter version. And I say blessed, because I

know they are a blessing, I just haven't figured out why yet.

Who is she? That sweetheart is my Aunt. 

 Not what you pictured for an aunt?

That might be because she's only eleven years older than me.

And I will state for the record that growing up with an Aunt, so close in age,

was the coolest thing ever, for both my brother and I. 

She liked our music, our clothes and our friends.

In fact, she still does! 


Speaking of sweethearts, my dear and very sweet friend Misha,

is hosting her second annual 'Flea Market Style' giveaway.

to see what all the buzz is about!


And speaking of buzzes,

I went here on Saturday.
 And I'm buzzing with excitement!


And speaking of bees, I've decided the button decision is final

and the tally is over and the end results

were astonishingly lopsided.

The winner by a landslide of 29 - 5....

And I think that wraps things up around the old farmhouse for another weekend.

Here's hoping your week is a good one.

~Bee well friends!~

Yay, the bee's are on their way!
They have to be...or my future vision won't come true, will it?

I knew that was your Mom, but not the aunt. My aunt Deb is only 9 years older than me! Too cool :)

Thanks for the shout-out about the giveaway! I can't wait to see who wins. Hooray!

You have an awesome week. Think of me while you are riding on the train. I will be mucking stalls and yelling, "Annie, NO!" over and over and over....Geez, toddlers.
xo, misha

I am grabbing your new
too-cool-for-school button!

Dawn said...

Bee-uuutiful choice for the button:)

Dandy said...

I loooooove that button! I have a thing for bees :)

Chris at Red Gate Farm said...

I knew you'd pick that button! It will be interesting to hear about beekeeping... since I assume that's why you went to a bee store :)

It must have been interesting to have such a young aunt. My husband has 11 aunts and uncles all from his dad's family (yep an even dozen kids)... the youngest uncle is only 4 years older than my husband. My father in law's school bus driver joked that there were Bouchard kids getting on the bus for 20 years... he was close since it was actually 19 years!

Heading over to My Front Porch in the Mountains right now!

Dianna said...

It was interesting to read about your aunt. I was an aunt when I was 2 1/2. By the time I was 9, I had two nephews and 2 nieces. We all grew up together. So I can identify with your love for your aunt!

Nancy said...

I must have missed your post about the button -- but I do love it! :)

Wren said...

You went to Better Bee? How cool is that!?! Happy Beekeeping!

Rural Rambler said...

I picked that button! Glad you got all about the picture straightened out! BeesBeesBees!

Mary, Windy Meadows Farm said...

Fun's always great to share those favorite family photos and stories! the idea, but I don't think it'll happen for me this year...I'll keep dreaming! -Mary

Vintage Country Girl said...

I like your button. Great choice. Bees scare me a little, so you are very brave in my eyes!

Dog Trot Farm said...

Having bees sounds very intimidating however, I am looking forward to future BEE posts! Love the new button, my favorite. Happy Spring!

Lisa ~Suburban Retreat~ said...

Thanks for the 'updates'! I wondered who the cake lady was as I recall seeing your Wedding Photos and didn't think you were one in the same!

Joy Tilton said...

My MIL's aunt was like 2 years older, I never could understand how this could happen! At nearly 90she has nearly 30 living cousins. Enjoyed reading your blog and looking over your fabulous pictures this morning!

MJ said...

Great button :). And thanks for the link to Misha's blog and giveaway!! Love it!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Love the button! You went to a bee supply place?? I didn't know such a place existed. Too wonderful! -Tammy

Shannan Martin said...

You are the best Segue-way-er EVAH!!!!!

Love this.

And I had a young aunt, too. She totally ruled the school!

Elle Bee said...

You went to a bee supply store!!! I'm so wishing I could have gone with you--I asked Jeff if we could have bees...yeah, backyard chickens was an easy sell--backyard bees? Not a chance. Sigh. I'll have to live out my barnheart through you!
