Been Rockin it out here@ the Funky Farmhouse!!

Lookin through the Sunflowers!!
Right in front of where I have been workin/playin!!
Close up!!
Here's Gary our Goat! I gave him an old rusty bell tied with twine!

Hey there just been workin/playin really hard here on the front trying to make it more like a Funky Farmhouse!! LOL It has taken me about 3 weeks so far!!
If you could watch me you would laugh!! I have all my tools out and then there is my old rusty layin down lawn chair right there with it all!! Oh my gosh I digg and plant and play for awhile and then sit up in my real funky lawn chair and rest!! It is old and broke but still works!! And by golly I am gonna use it til I can't!! LOL
Sim and I are in our Mt. Morris Historical Society. Sim is the President and pretty much runs it. I am the secretary of course!! LOL Sim does a lot of presentations. This pic is taken on the back porch of the oldest house we have left in our hometown. It has a very awesome story and is about to be torn down by the land bank of Flint. BUT Sim got it put on hold to see if we can get grants to save it!! And YES it is the one house I would leave my house for!!
We actually got(bought) the old sign back that use to be on it when we were kids!! Can ya digg it!!!

And it even has a Cat that resides in it!! If you could see the roof on the back you would know how it lives there!! And right on cue this lil sweetie jumped up on the roof and went in during the presentation!! LOL
I noticed when I went up to town and Sim was mowing the place for the presentation that there were a lot of wild blackberries growing around. So Sim and I went back and picked all of the ripe ones. I was able to make 71 plus the 2 Sim and I ate thumbprint cookies!! I just took white sugar and made the berries like a jam and put it in my fridge and then in a few days I made the cookies!! I found a real yummy Kraft recipe for it. I used some of my cool goodies for display like my old berry pickin crate, an old table runner, old blue jar with day lilies also from the yard. Sim made a sign that says "Stage Coach" Cookies on it. This place was a Coach Stop on The old Mackinac Trail in Michigan. Going up to the Mackinac Bridge. It also was a boarding house and that part is still in pretty good shape except for that darn roof!! Our town has a very cool history with a lot of founding people coming from Mt. Morris, New York. That is why we have the same name as Mt. Morris, New York.

I also went to my son Danny's group home picnic on Friday and we had a blast!! Danny loves this kind of stuff and he was so happy!! I was able to send some good pics to his sister Kaitlin in Connecticut!! Danny looks so much like my Dad and is built a lot like him. My Dad was a little dude!! LOL 

Been kickin out some "JUNQUE GARDEN" green tomtos. Well I actually have a red one almost done too. Just needs its junque garden made. And you know it I LOVE makin these!! Got some thoughts on some pumpkins too!

Ok now don't laugh but this the outfit I wore to church. We are havin a "JUNK IN THE TRUNK SALE" on August 9th. Our whole town is gonna be shut down with a lot goin on!! The Back to the Bricks classic cars will be in our town for the day!! SO I came up with this ideal for us to have in our parking lot!! And this is such a hoot the Pastor of my Church she's a lady found these on her vacation in Virginia!! So I guess it's ok to wear them!! LOL I have been wearing them the last two weeks to church to advertise!! Lot's of laughing! and so great to hear it!! I took my suitcase this past week with a few of my Funky Farmhouse girls and my "GOATS" to show them!! I will be wearing them that day too!!

This event is gonna be so much fun and just what our lil ole town needs!!

Here is an old fishing tackle box that Sim gave me for my rusty things I gather!! I just LOVE it!! It has a ruler on the top of it for measuring!! And the best part it is it's already rusty!! LOL You know I am digging that!!
I am workin on a lot of new stuff that needs to be finished in one way or another. Some need a grubby touch and some need just to get the last touch on them. I do love all that goes with it!! I am trying to fill up my Etsy Shoppe and have enough for the "JUNK IN THE TRUNK SALE"!!
 Keep on Keepin on!!
I'm off to do some sewing!  

XOXO Love Fran.
