whimsical wednesday

it's national watercolor month so we are painting for whimsical wednesday! not really painting but playing with paint. we're making a drop of paint and watch how far it travels. while watercolor painting takes a particular type of paper, paint and brushes, we won't be worried about that. if you don't have watercolor supplies, use a damp paper towel resting on a paper plate or something. drop a bit of food color on the paper towel. watch the color spread. how far did it go across the paper towel? of course, you are free to use actual watercolor supplies if you wish!

miscellaneous monday

miscellaneous monday at the whimsey project! our day to share all the stuff we don't share the rest of the week. what say you miscellaneous?

new critters grace the farm. windy and the children came home with baby guineas recently.  so cute! eight became seven over the first night but the remaining fowl are flourishing (sorry. couldn't resist!). when the guineas are grown they will roam at will, eating all the bugs we don't, as humans, enjoy! the former chicken coup will be their place of roost.

get ready.....

we're painting for whimsical wednesday. gather your supplies while ye may.
