Spring is Coming!

I know this because our ducks are back. We have three mallard ducks that live in a pond behind our place from early spring until fall. They came back, quacking loudly to announce their homecoming, this past weekend.

We made Roasted Vegetable Stacks for Sunday dinner.

They were delicious!

I’m still working on many custom orders for the shop. This is one of the latest… Etsy Labs Blind Mice!

Yes, those are the Blind Mice Likenesses of the girls of Etsy Labs : Danielle, Julie, Christine, and Mary. I wasn’t sure at first how it was going to work to take photos of humans and make mouse feltidermy versions of them. I ended up being white happy with the results.

Oh, don’t forget to tune in today to see Emily Martin of The Black Apple on the Martha Stewart Show today!

Have a great day!
