As we celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones later this week, I wanted to take a moment and give thanks to each and every one of you. Home has so many special meanings to me and my flocks, both feathered and human. It is incredibly symbolic for so many reasons and having you part of this blog has brought great joy, comfort, inspiration and lessons not only into my life but to many others who visit each week.
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Soon enough, we will all take the time to gather with our loved ones around the table and give thanks.
This is my latest creation for HGTV. I was inspired by nature and the kids just love taking chocolate candy eye balls from under the raven’s watch. This nest was created from found items in the woods and a trip to the dollar store. Click here to make a raven’s nest of your own for around $20. Just in time for Halloween.

Each year, the kids and I look forward to baking for Easter. Last year, we made cupcakes with Peeps sitting in nests filled with candy eggs. This year, I have seen so many variations of cakes with pastel colored M & Ms and an assortment of Peeps marshmallow candy on Pinterest and Facebook, that this was on my list to make with the kids this year. Today we made the cake. From start to finish, working with my 8 year old and 5 year old helpers, it took about 2 hours. This cake may not be perfect, but it sure is filled with love and the kids were thrilled with their accomplishment.
