Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Peanuts and Crows

One of our little grandgirls grew a peanut plant this summer.
She picked it out at the garden center, brought it home and planted it in a pot, watered it all summer, and last week she pulled it up and look what she grew!
Not usually a desert crop!

I saw these cute crows on Pinterest and thought I should make
a couple.  The undecorated crows are from the dollar store.
Then I just made them hats and necklaces and crowns and signs.
So fun!

I have some of those dollar store crows, too. Guess I need to fancy them up. Yours look so festive! Your grand daughter's peanuts look fun!

How fun to have a crop of peanuts! Good for her for giving it a try:>) Those crows are so adorable all dressed up, love them! Have a great weekend Mimi!

Are the shells soft when they're harvested? I imagine she'll need to roast them before eating? So interesting and fun for her.

Now this is something to crow about! LOL...your crows are just adorable. I'll have to check out my local dollar store for some.

How cool to have grown peanuts. Maybe she is onto something even bigger now.

Happy Fall!
