I love this time of year, sans the snow of course. I have been working in the garden when weather permits. Gardening at 9000 ft elevation is a bit different than in most places. We do well with root crops, peas, rhubarb, and plants in the cabbage family. But our freezes last longer and our night time temps never do much for tender crops like tomatoes and peppers. Hubby and I put up an 8 foot fence this year, since last year, the deer ate most everything, even my onions. Hopefully it helps. We are also experimenting with a small raised bed. I had two greenhouses at my last home, so I could really prolong my season, but not here.
I spent three days helping my son move.....never fun. And they are moving further away which makes me sad.
I have also been crafting. And going to yard sales. I love buying things at sales and reinventing them into sale-able merchandise. Here are a few of the things I have been working on:
I got these little rusty bears in with the stuff I bought from Jean. I wasn't sure what to do with them, but they look really cute as clocks.
I bought several of these sleds, unpainted after Christmas at 80% off. I simply free handed the snowman, flakes and wording.
I found two of these pitchers at a yard sale for fifty cents each. I had purchased a couple of trees after Christmas and simply added ribbon, lights and a rusty angel on top. If this doesn't sell, I know just where I will put it in my kitchen.
