My name is Anita Gail. Anita to some,Gail to others. I am a Christian, a mom to two,beautiful girls.My husband is an incredibly talented man.We purchased a 1930's Craftsman Bungalow about 6 years ago and we are having great fun restoring and decorating it.It has been a lot of hard work but so worth it.I love decorating my home with vintage style,European inspired items. My love for decorating along with my desire to save money,inspired me to open my store.My store has allowed me to not only supplement our income, but to offer many great decor items at great prices and make some really awesome "friends" along the way. Stop by and check us out!
In my last post,I mentioned that one of my most popular Etsy items was going to be featured in the March issue of Country Living Magazine.
I am quite excited and can hardly wait for my March issue to arrive.My imagination has been running away with me.I am sure that I am going to fall in love with the way the incredibly talented staff over at Country Living used my chicken wire cloches.
Thank you,thank you,thank you,Country Living Magazine.
The past year has definitely been a year of change for our family.
We have discovered that we are "late blooming farmers" and have spent the past 8 months or so getting a farm going. It is amazing how quickly it has grown.It all began with the desire to raise our own
eggs and chicken,in view of the health concerns of commercially raised meat,not to mention the inhumane treatment of the animals that go along with commercialization. A few chickens and laying hens quickly turned into quite the little farm,which is steadily growing.We are currently raising Quail,Quail eggs,domestic rabbit,Cornish Cross chickens and two pigs.It is a lot of work and consumes a lot of time but is very rewarding. It gives me great piece of mind knowing what I am feeding my family.
Those changes have required a lot of my time blogging time and I have truly missed it.It is my goal to designate more time for The Floppy Cow in the near future.I look forward to sharing photos and stories of my life as a farm chick, as well new and exciting things happening with The Floppy Cow.
One of our my most popular items at The Floppy Cow has been chosen as a featured in The March issue of Country Living Magazine.How funny that the item is made from chicken wire. I am quite excited and appreciative. Thanks CLM!
I hope this finds everyone doing well and blessed.
This past summer was extremely busy for my family and I and I had to put my blog on the back burner for a bit.I have surely missed everyone and all of your awesome talent! It is hard for me to believe that summer has come and gone and that the holidays are upon us!
I have tons and tons of things to share with you and look forward to catching up with everyone!
