    I started selling plants and miniature fairy gardens/accessories to get more livestock and pay for fencing--etc. Then I met the most amazing people when I started posting ads looking for livestock!

    One friend I met on LSN, she's the Yardsale Queen and somehow manages to get everything for .50, gave us meat rabbits and hatching eggs! Sooo we were busy putting together tractors that my other buddy and her husband, GAVE US! There are so many nice people around here, I am always amazed at the good hearts of people.

    Miniature fairy garden! I am making them all custom ones to say thank you. The ones they are getting are bigger than this though. Me and buddy are also making hypertufa and polymer clay stuff to sell!

    Indeed!!
    Great pictures. I kept scrolling and thought, "Wow. Someone's had a jam-packed few months!!!"
    I like your fairy garden. I've always been one for miniature things/scale-models. Nice work.
