Encouraging Hearts and Home 04.22.2021

A visit to Tim Hortons, A DIY tutorial on How to Make Tassels,  Cookie Crumb Peach Cobbler, and A C2C Window Pane Throw Pillow (with free pattern!) are this week's featured posts!  

Hello and Welcome!

We are in a race with our chickens! They are growing faster than we are getting the chicken coop built! We had little help from Mother Nature this past week it cost us a lost day when we got 6+ inches of snow on 04.19.2020! But fortunately, it melted almost as quickly as it fell, and we are back to dry (enough) conditions to resume building. 

The other thing that shocked us a bit, the new price of lumber! So while we are not changing our plans, we are changing some of our materials. Fortunately, we have been blessed to find more materials to recycle into what we need around our little homestead...

And now, it's time for this week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!

  1. Melynda,
    Good Morning!!!
    Thanks so much for taking the time each week to host this charming party!!! It is truly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

    1. Debbie, thanks for sharing your creative content with EHH, have a great week ahead!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting! I’m linking up with my HAPPY SPRING TRUCK PRINTABLE and OUTSTANDING BLOGGER AWARD – MY WEE ABODE. I’d like to invite you to drop by and linkup at some of my parties.

    1. Dee, thanks for sharing with EHH! I will stop by, I am intrigued with the truck printable!

  3. I have been hearing a lot about the rise in lumber prices, but I haven't really noticed it here. I will add that I never really paid attention to the price when we bought wood though... I look forward to seeing your chicken coop! Chickens are one of my favorite animals. I always had them growing up. Since we have plans to tear down our home in the near future and build a new one, I have held off on getting some but I want to build a nice, big aviary for them.


    1. They will love the space! I hope lumber prices have stabilized when you go to rebuild your home, in our area currently a sheet of plywood is over $60! We have used this time to search out recyclable materials, which I always enjoy using, but I have to admit, it adds time to the project for nail removal etc. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.
