Feathers, Friends, Finishings and Floods

Well this has been another weird weather day. But I love a good storm so it is exciting.

Tornadoes in the county again today
Maine street in Caribou. In a matter of minutes it was flooded.

We drove into Burger Boy here and it was clear, by the time we ordered our food this is what was going on outside. It was so fast, amazing and scary.
Did a few of these for the store. Just some quicky things
It Rained 2.5 inches in less than an hour

My summertime swap that Misi hosted. this was all the amazing things I got from Theresa. I am not sure what blog she is from unfortunately because it was a secret and it didn't say on the card. And now that I think about it I am not sure I put that on mine that I sent either. I love it all. Look how cute the bees are. And I didnt have any of the colonial pictures so very happy with these. It is all so great.

I got all these awesome feathers from Tamara as well today. How cool is this.

made these for the store tonight too. I am making different things to hang besides the flower as well. Like flags for the 4th.

Vanna (Ryan) didn't want to be in the picture lol and I didn't want to screw it to my door. Just wanted a pic.

I hope everyone is having a great week. Even with the flash floods and scary storms everyone is safe and that is all that matters.
I hope tomorrow is a little less rain or my basement is going to be a flood zone. My gardens are taking a beating from the hail and rain. Good news is I might not have to water them for a few days I guess.


  1. Wow you are getting hit with some weird weather, way up there in Maine. Weather wise...I remember a hot summer and 6 months cold and snow, not floods and tornadoes. We have had the heat so who knows what we will get. My husband and I are curious to know if they still have the blackfly and the potato blossom festivals ..

  2. Oh my gosh, Kat - that looks horrible! Hope it moves on and you all are safe...Love your projects!!! Wish you were closer - those little trellises would be so cool in my garden...Glad you got some feathers. Still looking for more? (I've been a little slow but should have some together by the first of the week if you would still like some...Feathers from the Land of Nod, you know, aren't your ordinary feathers!! ;o)) LOVE your swap goodies... Wow, wow and WOW!! Everything looks wonderful - but truly love those colonial pictures!! Yikes!! You did good. If you find out what her blog is, let me know!! Keep safe friend - and let me know about the feathers. (wow - what a weird way to end a comment, hey??) Smiles & hugs ~ Robin

  9. Kat,
    Wow! Lots of rain. Looks like what we had here not too long ago. Better invest in a life raft just in case. I love your swap goodies.
    Glad to see you received the feathers I sent you.
    Hope they will be useful. My chickens are greatful for some of straw to be raked out. Gonna get hot soon. Don't want baked chickens.

  11. This has been the wettest year that I ever remember! We have had flooding in Ohio too and even in North Dakota where I am originally from. I think we should have planted rice patties this year!
    Your blog is so lovely! I have signed on as a follower as well.
