~ Spring Gatherings ~

Hello friends, can you believe 
it's Friday already!!!

Easter has passed but I just have to share what
was gifted to me by my husband....

Straight from my husband's woodworking shop!

All hand carved and painted. 

 Even a cross on the back of 
this Easter wagon!

I especially LOVE this little bundle of wooden carrots!


Today I'd like to share a really fun little book...

Mary Emmerling's "American Country Gardens"

Hardcover with a total of 79 pages.

Published in 1991.  Can be found on either Ebay or Amazon.

This little book is full of pretty pictures and great ideas for 
Spring decorating.

Never enough birdhouses!  Love the log cabin.

Wonderful old stone shed!

Sweet little herb garden.

More great sheds and birdhouses.

Nice porch sitting area...a must have for outside stitching!

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into this little book.


Here is a gathering of some of my favorite Spring time
photos ....

Snippets of threads that I share with feathers friends....they
love to weave them into their nests.

My wild rabbit friend Abby, bee skeps and a log birdhouse.

All these things bring peace and happiness to my 
country heart and hands!

This weekend I'm hoping to find some time to turn 
these little boxes into something special...

My three favorite colors of Americana paints ~

~ Heritage Brick
~ Antique Gold
~ Georgia Clay

I'll probably be lucky if I get one done!


Next, I'll be pouring my heart and soul into establishing ~

~ Humble Hare Handwork Club ~



This morning a Woodpecker outside my bedroom window
woke me up early and I couldn't get back to sleep...he 
would not stop pecking!

As I glanced across my bedroom these old Llamas 
caught my eye in the morning sunlight...they
have such a happy look on their face!


~ Weekend Soul Food ~

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning will I direct
my prayer unto thee, 
and will look up.

~ Psalm 5:3...KJV ~


Thank you for visiting with me today, and hope 
you'll stop again on Monday!

Have a great weekend!

Spring Blessings,
Kindly, Tammy 


  1. What a talented husband you have! I will have to show this(and past treasures you have shown) to our 18 year old son. He is going to trade school in the fall to become a carpenter.
    The woodpecker made me laugh.

  2. I am waiting with bated breath to see what you are going to do first for Triple-H Club. I can hardly wait. Happy Friday.

  3. Your hubby is quite talented! What an adorable bunny and cart!! A priceless treasure. :)
    That looks like a great book. I added it to my amazon wishlist. ;)
    Thank you for sharing!!

  4. Hubby is very talented. So sweet.
    I have a couple of the Mary Emmerling books, but not that one. I think I need to head over to Amazon.
    Hugs :)
