  •   tell2tiff but I don't want anyone I know to see the pic :-( 1w
  •   lawmommyof3 @lawmommyof3 ps. Because its dark on our side of the world already I had to leave the lights on for the picture 1w
  •   howdy_honey Love this contest! 1w

  •   monhub This picture is killing me. That's the best part. 1w

  •   tell2tiff There's no bad part of a brownie! But they shouldn't be crunchy either. Most people overbake & them the edges aren't good. 1w

thenester Years ago, when the internet seemed scarier, Melissa & I became friends, conference roommates and giggled often at inside jokes. She's on one coast, I'm on the other but having her book is like having her right here. if you want step by step ideas, applicable & simple routines, confident thoughts, & encouragement for your home--you'll just love this book by @theinspiredroom #lovethehomeyouhave 1w

thenester Well hello! We've got 10 baby chicks & now we have ducks on the way! 2w
  •   beach_joy Beautiful chicks @benphills2020 1w
  •   tell2tiff If you live on a farm & raise animals, that's okay, but too many other people make mistakes of buying these or bunnies for Easter gifts :-( 1w
  •   vol25 @thenester I missed this post of yours! How exciting. Which breed of ducks did u order? I decided to not mix this flock and went with all welsh harlequins. I wanted a Cayuga so bad... also I second bunnies!! I had a couple of Holland lops as a kid. Best rabbits ever. Can't wait to get a couple this year or next. I'm looking at using them inside a greenhouse as a heat source. Also... like duck poo... their "business" works excellent right away as fertilizer. 7d
  •   theoilyjourney We had ducks when we lived in Texas. They were so fun! I bought them a kiddie pool & filled it with fresh water daily for them to play in. They loved it! 5d
  •   theoilyjourney @mgason isn't that the truth? They are better than a guard dog. 5d

thenester If you don't love your door, paint it! More today on the blog along with why I won't tell you the paint color--it's for your own good. 2w
  •   andrea_ann29 Love that color? What's the brand? Color name? 2w
  •   toryj4 Love the color! @thenester 2w
  •   tell2tiff I'm glad you won't tell! I'm tired of everyone trying to copy a certain look. Make your own decisions! It's fine to get ideas, but don't buy the same exact accessories etc. It should be personal & meaningful. 1w
  •   robin.horton Did you paint it while it was still hanging or take it down? I just painted mine yesterday, actually, but I'm seeing the white from the door jamb and so I'm wondering if I should have painted that too 1w
  •   thenester @tell2tiff I love that you think I might be that thorough! No, do not remove the door. Xo 1w
  •   tell2tiff Hmm, I didn't ask about the door coming off. Robin did. I love the door by the way! ;-) That window style is nice. & the color of close to the one I used to have in my room. So pretty! 1w
