Good morning

Wondering where everyone gets their great ideas for writing on blogs.   There are so many talented blog writers out there and so many are willing to share their creative secrets with us.
We have been off wandering around looking for supplies.    I do like to buy them on Etsy and that way we all help each other but it is also fun to go to the local shops and see what treasures you can find.   It is always a good thing to help local small businesses so they can stay open and add some great variety of items that are often different then the chain stores offer.
Artists and creative people prefer to help others like them become successful also by supporting them.
Well, I guess this blog has become a support your local shop story.

Welcome to Wildhorse farm on Etsy.
A very talented artist who fills her shop with a variety of handmade items.
You can find some jewelry she has made along with handmade breyer horse tack and saddles.  This horse tack is for horses similar to Breyer.
You can find handmade purses, each one a little different then the other one.
There are a few vintage patterns in the shop for variety.
Stop by her shop and take a peak.

This is the story of Koda.  
He is a special horse who we were lucky enough to have stay with us for a while and entertain us.
He is a beautiful light sorrel with flaxen mane and tail and with a big beautiful bald face.  He even had white eyelashes on one side of his head.  
Koda was a rescue horse who needed love and food and attention. 
We brought him to the farm and he put on weight and played and ate up all attention he could get.  He especially like us to go and pick the clover outside the fence and bring it to him.
Koda gave us many hours of enjoyment watching him but he missed having other horses in his life and at the time we only had the one.
Twice he managed to break through the fence.  One morning, early, our neighbor came over and said that Koda was standing on his front porch and he brought him back home.  He must have liked to visit the neighbors.
The second time he broke the fence down, he headed for our backdoor.
He really wanted friends so he is now a few miles away at a farm with other horses and he has a couple of girlfriends he likes to run and play with in the fields.
He is so happy to be with the other horses and is healthy.
We do miss him but he is where he should be after we brought him back to health.
Yes, we have a stronger fence now and are keeping our eyes and ears open for another rescue horse who needs food and love and attention.  Ok, we are keeping our eyes open for perhaps two rescue horses so they are not alone.
We enjoyed Koda so much we thought we would share his story with you.

There are some really awesome blogs out there with such talented people writing them.
Perhaps there is still room for those of us who are beginners and whose talent is not writing.
The hardest part has been looking for topics to write about. 
There are some wonderful craft ideas,  receipes,  ideas and suggestions for all kinds of things around the house.
Some are just fun to read because of the story they tell.
So I am off reading blogs to inspire me to find fun topics to write about and not put the readers who happen to stop by to sleep.

Where is spring

Where is spring?   So ready for some sunny and warm weather.  
I was not prepared to see snowflakes drifting down this last week.   While it did not stick there was a light dusting on the ground for a short time.
Once you get into spring you are ready to plant garden and get ready for summer craft shows.
With the price of groceries going up all the time, I think I will plant a bigger garden this year so we can have lots of fresh vegtables that we know are healthy.
I see lots of salads in our future and I love them with lots of tomatoes.
At least we can sit down with the seed catalogs and dream.

Free shipping

Yes, I did not keep my promise to keep my blog up so I am going for second chances here.
Running a sale this week in one of my shops that all agate jewelry has free shipping.
We all need a little break on price when we can get it and with tax season here, we perhaps need even more breaks.
We are slowly building our jewelry shop and you will find several pieces of agates in our shop
Stop by our shop and see our agate necklaces.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
