Another day of farming! While we were talking about NEW "farm" themed goodies I wanted to share a new layout I finished the other day. There are tons of great samples posted on the Heartwarming Vintage blog, done by the ever so talented Crafty Secrets Design Team that you wont want to miss.. so be sure to pop over and check them out.
Wish I knew more about that darling little girl in the photo. It's a photo of Sandys..but I just had to use it for these new "farm" images and stamps.Thanks Sandy!
I also used the chicken wire stamp and the checker board stamp from the new stamp set below.

Here are the ..... **NEW** Farm Fresh Scraps
It's funny that the last few days I've been working with "farming" things, and also just happened to have been scanning some photos of moms to put them on discs. This photo below just cracked me up!
One day when I was chatting with mom about life back in those days, She said, "you know .. everything was harder back then...but still we call it The good old days". "Things were harder, but it was just simpler times, less hectic, people werent in such a hurry".
Below is my Great Granparents farm.
The photo below is not one that I just ran accross. Ive had this for some time, and it's one of my very favorites. I've scrapped it a number of times. It's a photo of my cousin Craig and I, holding baby kittens on the front porch of my Grandparents farm house. He and I were bestest buddies ... awwww
I wasnt raised on a farm but I have so many fond memories of trips to South Dakota to visit my Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. I have so many great memories of each place. I was just thinking the other day about how I loved to gather eggs with my Aunt Pauline. How she let me ring the big bell out in the yard to call the guys in from the field for lunch. And how she tried to show me how to milk a cow. ( I never did get the hang of that)...but I always thought it was funny when she squirted the milk accross the barn into the cats mouth. :) Oh.. the things kids remember.
In nothing are we as rich as in our memories; they are pictures painted by our hearts, and nothing can erase them.
