Eggs, hikes, a coupon & a winner!

Whoo hoo!!!  Your intuitions were correct, Dana!  Lita picked you to win those awesome earrings from my last post.  Although, you didn't have much competition [sorry Jen], it came down to a right hand/left hand pick, with you being my left hand and Jen being my right...the first hand Lita licked was the winner!  And I promise I washed my hands, so no lingering smells would be left, making the choice biased, one way or the other.  So yay!!!!  I hope you enjoy your little dragons, Dana!!  And thanks to all that read my ramblings and leave comments ~ ya'll are the best!!
I went down to the farm yesterday to bring food scraps to these guys and came home with this:
A huge goose egg!  Now I know folks call it a goose egg when you get a big knot on your head, but I can't imagine having a knot that even remotely resembles an actual goose egg!  This thing is huge!  And I was going to whip it up for breakfast, but I "chickened" out ~ lol.  Has anybody ever eaten a goose egg?  What do they taste like?  Maybe I'll get braver as the day goes by and we'll have it for breakfast tomorrow...or dinner tonight.
 So Wayne, Broc and I went on a hike up to "Big Rock Trail" in Dupont State Forest!  It was a gorgeous day...actually the weather has been amazing!  I really do hope that Winter has come to an end!  When you are standing on the edge of Big Rock, you almost wish you had a giant balloon to float away on...well, PhotoShop can make that a reality!  I love this photo!  Had to share with ya'll!
And since you are all so awesome, I'm offering a 10% discount to all of my blog readers!  All you have to do is enter the coupon code BLOGGER2011 in both my Etsy Shop & Artfire Shop to get 10% off your total purchase!  Happy Spring!!  And now, I gotta run....I'm making something awesome with these:
 Tiny harmonicas and they really play!  They are awesome!!  I'm keeping the red one for myself...I serenaded all of the dying hemlock trees in the forest...hope it helps them, or at least gives them peace...
...I'm calling the first necklace I make "Carry your own tune"...it's a little like "dancing to the beat of your own drummer", of which I can totally relate!

Happy Tuesday!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. I'm ok with Dana winning! That goose egg is huge! I have had a chicken egg almost that big...poor hen, must have hurt.
    The only thing I've heard about goose eggs, is that they are really rich in flavor, having more fat.
    Grace and I are heading out for a hike with our neighbor after a while, looking for an old cemetery. I'll take my camera and get some pics if we find it.
    Poor hemlocks...we had something similar with white oaks and the oak borer beetles. They seem to have slowed down (knocking on wood).
    Enjoy the wonderful day!

  2. Thank you Lita, Kathy,.... and Jen, for being so gracious! I have not been online and didn't even know I had won until the earrings showed up today. The mail came super early (a rarity around here); what an awesome way to start a day!! The loving care you put into each little detail makes me smile all the way to my toes. :)
    Can't wait to see your latest creations with those tiny harmonicas. Have a beautiful day!


Thanks for your comments ~ ♥
