Happy 4th

As some of you already know...we found 2 turtles in our yard the other day. Seems like we have had alot of wildlife in the yard this year and the boys love it!
I was sitting down to lunch and the crazy dog would just not stop barking! Finally having enough I went to see what the problem was...another dog, cat , WHAT? Two turtles becoming friends in the yard ;) I went and and got the boys and we all went to check them out, minus dog. Brought them up on the deck, one must have been picked up many time before because it was not scared of us. It took off as soon as we put him down and the other hung out for a couple of hours before finally making the trip down the hill, but not before the boys had to give it some leaves.there he goes
The second turtle was in the same place for at least 3 hours.

I'm not scared of you!!!
(I think they are Eastern Box Turtles.)

They sure did have pretty markings. The boys put a dot of pink nail polish on the top of each shell. That way if we see them again we know we have already caught them in the yard. There are at least 4 maybe 5 turtles living close to the house.
We have now caught and released...frogs, toads, lizards, a snake, and 2 turtles so far this year! Can't wait to see what else the boys will find! :)

4th of July

OK, so it has been alot longer that I thought since I was last here! Can't believe the month of June is but a memory. With the boys out of school and an early vacation last month just ran away from me, I don't think it even looked back to see if I was still there!
I have been adding some new hemp jewelry to my ZIBBET shop and have been having fun with that! There is just something about summertime that inspires me to make more hemp jewelry. Might be because all I need is an idea, beads (or not) and some hemp...not alot of tools required except the ones I always have with me! My hands :)
I thought that I would throw a couple of Americana inspired earrings, , I know shameless self promotion. In theme with the blog name and this very special American holiday!
I do have some things coming up that I will share with you all soon. School for my boys will be starting back in August, so that will take some of my time. I am also going to be in a craft fair in September and I have to get started working on stuff of that. My mom is going to join me and bring her wonderful quilts. I have been trying to get her to open an ETSY shop of her own, maybe this year will be the year.

I hope that you all have a wonderful and joyful 4th of July weekend!
