I mentioned elsewhere (one of the posts under "weather") that we were opening a bed 'n breakfast soon. MaryJane surprised me with the offer for a bed set for one of the beds. It is lovely! Here's the photo of her blue Cotton Clouds bedding:



And, I asked her for a little card to put in the room so our guests would know where this scrumptious bedding came from! It is just so perfect and I love it! Thank you, MaryJane!

That is wonderful Charlene. I'm sure it's beautiful, I've seen pictures in other shops of her Cotton Cloud line. Your picture didn't come through or else it's something with my computer. Anyway congratulations! How soon will you be opening for business?

Uhm...not sure what is happening. I just tried to edit my post and use a different picture, but that wasn't successful either. So, it isn't your computer, Janet. It is me. :-) My rooms are all ready, but we are hoping to install double doors in the hallway that leads to the rooms and bath for increased privacy. I'm waiting on my builder...I think its going to take me being a squeaky wheel. It is a small job but he will do it well so it blends with the rest of the house...so I shall need to be patient! Hopefully, we can officially open within the next few weeks.

Here's a photo of my surprise! And one of our very first guests to use MaryJane's surprise...actually it is my one and only grandbaby! Oh, how I love my little grandson...I get to spend every Friday afternoon with him so my daughter can run errands or even have lunch with my son-in-law.

Charlene,
I missed this thread/pics somehow. It's the sleeping baby that makes that bed! Great idea for an ad:) I know what you mean about spending time with grandkids. It's the ultimate on one's bucket list I'd say. Again, good luck with your B&B!!!! I'll be sending people your way. In my experience, people loved staying on a farm. I called my concept a B&B Farm Stay. You might try that in your advertising.

Thank you MaryJane! I so appreciate your encouragement and advice. And, I do agree that little Theo makes the bed just perfect. :-)

Today was a busy day as our builder came bright and early to start on the double doors in the hallway leading to the guest bedrooms. Workers were coming in and out all day...good progress was made. The double doors look so grand and inviting at the same time! Pictures will be posted when it is completed.

And, then this afternoon I took Clover over to MaryJane's. Busy day on the farm and loved it all.

It sounds like a pretty full day Charlene but when your B&B is finished, and Clover is pregnant, it will be all worth every moment. Hang in there lady!

Oh yes, Janet, it will be worth it! I actually like busy days like yesterday as long as I don't have several of them all in a row. It was just a little crazy with the workers asking questions (some I knew the answers to and others required a quick call to the hubby). I wanted to make some molasses cookies to take over to MJ and her husband...never happened until late last night, unfortunately. And, I still have some cookie dough to pop into the oven this morning...always makes the house smell wonderful.

So we are up and running! If you so desire, see us at our website: meadowlarkheritagefarm.com or find us on Facebook (search for Meadowlark Heritage Bed and Breakfast) for all the photos and information! My dear son-in-law came over on Saturday and took the photos for me and we got everything posted.

I got to see it in person. The private deck has the most amazing view! And the accommodations are fabulous, just fabulous. Charlene has attended to every detail. Plus I think guests will benefit from and enjoy the Meadowlark Heritage Farm scene. Very uplifting.

Thank you everyone. I hope we can be gracious hosts to everyone who stays with us. Hopefully, we can get our place advertised well enough to start getting some reservations. I ordered brochures which will be delivered next week but I still need perhaps a better website...I'm not very good with computers and everyone keeps telling me that my website will sell the BnB. I am learning. :-) Frankly, I'd rather be setting up the rooms, caring for my farm animals, chatting here instead of working on a website!

Here are my happy goats that greet me every morning:



This is Marigold and Tulip. DaisyMae, Poppy, Tansy, and Blossom were still outside in the pasture.

They are great, Ron!!! And, their milk is quite tasty...not quite like Jersey's but still good. Goat cheese is good, too. I love how each one knows their name and I can call them and each one will come to me, even when in the middle of the herd. I love it! I think its great watching one of my does weave and push her way through to get to me after I've called her name.
