In the Beginning
Welcome to my first attempt at a blog. I am learning all this new computer stuff at one time and it is time consuming and sometimes frustrating. So here's a brief intro to me; I am currently a stay at home mom to four furbabies; I love all things country and primitive. I am attracted to a simpler, less hurried life, even though mine isn't right now. I love to make items for my home and for others in the country/primitive style. I have the help of my four assistants, which is often hilarious. I live in the middle of a large farm in the Thumb of Michigan. We are truly living a country life. We only own one acre, but I am always plotting about how to obtain more land. My dream is to build a country store behind my home. The name of the blog came from the beautiful red-winged blackbirds who think they own me, at least for the summer months! We have one who thinks he owns our home! I am always so excited when I hear their first trills in the early Spring. I am not a winter person and long to return to the South; I was born in the North, but my heritage is in the South. I hope to make this a place to share stories and ideas, but right now my bulldog Niles needs a potty break. So, see y'all real soon.
