Oh how I LOVE Farmer's Markets!!


Hi Guys!!
I just wanted to share my new favorite gig I made lately. I got this jar no kidding at the St. Mary's Rummage Sale last summer. First of all I couldn't believe they charged me for a sauerkraut jar!! LOL But hey it is for a good cause!! I knew right away what to do with it!! It only took me this long to throw it together!! I experimented last summer with chalkboard spray paint which I also got at a sale!! Ok I am in LOVE with it!! I had made a bunch of these tomatoes from a thrifted sweatshirt. They are so cute. I made as many as I could from that shirt!! And have used them in quite a few things. I LOVE my green tomato worms too. This is in my etsy shoppe.
Always a story with the materials that I use!! I wish you could be with me sometimes. I have so much fun!! Sim and I are known to just get up and go walkin or drivin to look for rusty stuff!! Sometimes gone for hours and my daughter wondering where we have gone now. Seems like we always forget the cell phone!! LOL
Spring is here but it is still quite cold. I can not wait for the sunshine to stay and warm up the gardens so I can work in them.
Have a groovey weekend. I have a super duper busy one!!
Love Fran.

I am so thankful!! XOXO

Well I have been celebrating my birthday week!! I got myself this new groovey mug, "girl you are a boss"!! I love it. And I even got myself some orange daiseys!! I feel like I have finally earned it!! My little handmade etsy shoppe is doing good and I am getting other orders too. SO I am embracing it. I've dreamed it, prayed for it, and I am excited! Maybe excited scared!! When God answers prayer watch out!!
I will also be doing a giveaway soon here on my little blog. Just gotta come up with something jazzy for you guys. Thanks for hangin with me through it all and I can not wait to see what the future holds for me!!!

Well I joined the Pixie Chicks Club!!

After a very long last few months this winter. I needed something new!! So I got new nerdy glasses (which btw help me so much hand sewing. They are full of close up help!!) Then I decided it was time to grow up and get my hair cut. I love both of them!! What do you think?
This is one of my new gigs in my shoppe. It is a large size berry serving spoon with a jazzy nest of vintage strawberries and one of my lil chicks!! AND a real chicken feather I found at the stockyards. My fav thing to do when I am there!! lol
A couple of weeks ago Sim took me for a surprise ride into THE THUMB OF MICHIGAN. We went and checked out where we are gonna stay on our June vacation. Oh my goodness it was so much fun!! We found this barn I do not know what the words mean. But the art on this barn is just amazing!!
We are gonna have some good weather this week and I can not wait. I wanna open up my windows and air the house so bad!! I need to get all the winter yucky out of here!!
Keep on Keepin on!!
Love Fran.

SPRING has Sprung here at The Funky Farmhouse!!


So the other day the top pic caught my eye and I was like wait that is not a squirrel!! So I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pics to show Sim I was not crazy!! LOL
What is wrong with this picture? Raccoons come out at night!!! LOL This one came from the woods. He tried getting the suet cakes but couldn't. I just left him alone and he left and went back over the house and back into the woods!! This is just one of the reasons I love my Funky Farmhouse!!
 I just added this cool gig to my etsy shoppe!!
 I had a lot of fun putting her together!! Do you remember the story of The Borrowers? Well you know I loved it, being about gatherers who lived with the mice!! And then there was the "The Little's" too. Some of my fav childhood stories. I put a lot of my cool junque findings into this oh so awesome gig. And I love it!! 
What do ya think of it?
 I don't go to Walmart very often but I ran in there the other day when I went into Flint. I was looking for the drinking glasses that look like Milk Bottles I seen someone post somewhere. But they didn't have them. So I went over and looked at the Easter stuff!! And I was like Oh My God no way!! CHALKBOARD EASTER EGGS!! I got them so Madeline and I can make some for her Mommy and some for me. There are a dozen in the coolest egg crate and it comes with the chalk too!! And only a $1.98!!
And Madeline wanted to say HI GUYS!! I have been spending a lot of time with this sweet little baby girl!! Her shirt says "Bring on the Sunshine"!!
I have been finishing up some gigs and working on orders. AND lovin this new sun shining week we are having after this very long stinkin winter!!
Keep on Keepin On!!
Peace Out!!
Love Fran.
