Good Monday morning to ya! Thanks for joining the Barn Hop ladies, Amy from Homestead Revival, Jill from The Prairie Homestead, and myself, for another weekly round-up of linky love.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! I, for one, and EXHAUSTED!! We had Elias’ first birthday party yesterday, and I’m still trying to wind down from the craziness!

Some new happenings around the homestead… we had a surprise chick hatch out (more on that to come!), our 20 guinea eggs are beginning to hatch, and I got some fun new plants in the mail which I hope to get in the ground soon (if this rain will ever stop!).

What’s been going on around your place??

We had lots of great posts linked up last week! If you didn’t get a chance to see them, here was one I particularly liked…

I just loved these Hand Towel Aprons that Lisa shared last week. They’re super cute, and look easy enough for a newbie sewer like me to do!

There were so many great posts linked up last week, though. What was your favorite?

As always, a BIG thanks to everyone who participates in our Homestead Barn Hops! It’s so great to see so many motivated people!

Be sure to link up and share what’s been going on around your homestead! If you don’t have a blog, please say hello in the comments section! I always love to hear from you guys!

    Thanks for hosting the Homestead Barn Hop once again. I shared a post on making herbal first aid salve for your animals, using medicinal herbs that you can find growing on your homestead. There’s a lot on the internet about making salves and tinctures for humans but not so much on which herbs are helpful for our animal friends. The two are not equal. Hope your readers find help for their homesteads through my post.

    Now off to check out some of these other creative ideas.
