Look what came in the mail today

My daughter Kate ordered six mallards. The local post office called this morning to tell us they were there and we needed to come pick them up.  Oh my Goodness!  How cute are they?  She wants to raise them and let them loose on our lake.  I'm worried that there are too many predators and they won't survive.  We shall see. I have to think positive!

Prim Pillows and Little Dot.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We sure did.  The granddaughters were so precious in their Easter dresses.  We had a huge family tractor/wagon ride with all the cousins, aunts and uncles to two secret egg hunts.  They had a ball!  At the second hunt location there were five loose kayaks on our lake.  Three of them held an egg with a nice cash prizes inside.  This was a nice distraction for the big kids, and oh so funny to watch while the little ones ran around the yard egg hunting.
On to my newest craze.  PILLOWS!  I had fun with paint and stencils.  I think my favorite is the flag one.
Each is hand painted and walnut stained.  I really love walnut stain.  No stale coffee smell!!

This is little Dot that I made from a sweet meadows farm pattern.  She's so sweet.
I need to get busy listing everything. I hope to be back in a few days with the finished bathroom pictures.  It's almost finished!   Have a wonderful week everyone.
