Minty Ponies

While trolling Etsy a while ago I stumbled across some cute horse fabrics at Thistle and Fox. I just had to have them. The mint is my favorite. 

The second it arrived I knew it had to be matched up with some pinks and greys and other minty fabrics.

I backed it with some hot pink flannel and it turned out great!

This one has already gone to a new home, but I've almost finished a bigger one for Ebony. She definitely
 needs one too!

Spring at last!

We love Spring on the farm. The days start warming, the chooks start laying again, we get foals, lambs and this year a calf.

Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers. The kids love them too. We love their sunny yellow trumpets and Samuel says they are like the sun. For him that means golden. His favorite color. Not yellow, golden.

We love sunny days when we can walk around the farm with the dogs and visit our animal friends.

The shorts have been out already (though Samuel has been wearing shorts most of the winter. Yep, he's one of those people.) of course we still need our gumboots on, the paddocks are still flooded, but will dry up soon with these glorious warm days.

The dam by the house is well over full and the dogs love that they can actually stand in it with out having to swim!

Yep, we love spring!
