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.

Sometimes we get so caught up in the "material world". It's nice to know there is someone out there to help bring us back. Thanks for reminding me of what the really important stuff is; like your canine loves, riding your bike and the world around you. You are a wonderfully interesting, creative, life-loving, individualistic, loving human being. Keep writing!
