My husband and I started dating on August 7th, 1971, and we married on August 6th, 1978. We are still happily together! Our daughter is grown, 35. She has 2 of her own, boys. 11 and 1. She has her hands full!!! We live about 5 minutes from each other. She works, and goes to school. My older grandson is in all sports! And my younger grandson is all over! She’s always busy :)!

I used to do everything, work, we owned a farm, I've worked and owned businesses all my life. I’m disabled now, I have lupus, fibromyalgia, and arthritis, among a lot of other things, but my attitude is still excellent! I've also lost a bunch of weight, after I'd gained a bunch of weight :); which was good for me, but I have to slow it down now. So, I want to start baking! and I want to start crocheting, and possibly knitting, again! There are so many cute things I can do now for my grandkids, and I’ll just get the cushions for the hooks and needles, I’ll be fine!!! I can’t wait to get started!

Finding Quiet Moments on Local Farms with @wings_of_tin

For more lush portraits of life on small farms, follow @wings_of_tin on Instagram.

“Farming is the dedication of your life to the stewardship of plants from seed to harvest, for better or for worse, in good weather or bad, through pest and disease, at all hours,” says Nikki Seibert (@wings_of_tin). “All of this back-breaking and often heart-wrenching work is done to provide food for family, friends and neighbors.”

Nikki spends almost every day working with local farms in Charleston, South Carolina, where she runs a sustainable agriculture program for organic farmers.

“I’m a ‘farmer of farmers’,” she jokes. “A childhood filled with outdoor adventures, hardworking parents, and countless hours spent building, growing and fixing things created the trifecta for me to end up in a career in agriculture.”

Nikki uses Instagram to showcase her favorite colorful crops and the green, flourishing landscapes of the farmlands she visits.

“I hope my pictures show how important it is to support the people and places that make your community unique,” she says. “Also, how much I love playing in the dirt.”

Madeleine Cake

this looks good!!!

Very funny…from Animal Planet, they visited the set of “Tanked” with the stars of “JackAss”…hahahahaha…


Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell meticulously recreated her parents’ house using German chocolate cake, complete with flickering lights in the windows.

"The foundation of the house is made out of layer upon layer of German chocolate cake. McConnell then covered the base with piped buttercream frosting and melted chocolate—no fondant necessary. She constructed the windows out of frosted sugar glass so that light could shine through from the interior and light up the house."

She also created an oil painting of the house, which Redditor Your_Post_As_A_Movie used to create this awesome faux movie poster.

Click here for a brief video to check out McConnell’s mouthwatering cake house from all sides.

Visit Neatorama or My Modern Metropolis for additional images of the original house, interior and exterior.

Look at this…this is just amazing!!!  How talented she is…
