Feeding the Fish Camp Amelia Style

 One of the most super fun activities at Camp Amelia is feeding the fishies!
  Amelia!  We are here!
I just love watching the fish make bubbles on the surface of the pond!
Today was a hungry hungry fishy day!

Camp Days are the Best Days!
Thanks Amelia!

Happy Father's Day!

A Big Happy Father's Day to my Dad, Mr. Yesteryear Acres! Not only is he the best Dad to our furry family members, but he is the best Human Dad too! Growing up I have always known he would be there for me no matter what. From the furry creatures I would bring home (an orphaned family of skunks is probably not something everyone would be thrilled about their daughter bringing home..) to going with me to college visits, to helping me move, remodel a house, move again, plumbing surprises, fallen trees,  late night phone calls, and everything in between. You are the best Dad in the whole world and I am the luckiest human alive to be your Daughter. Thank you for loving me, supporting me, and helping me always. I love being so close to you and working and learning along side you each and every day. You are my favorite gardener, ice cream buddy, and DIY partner. Happy Father's Day Dad! Thank you for being YOU! I love you so much!!
Thank you for helping me with all my creature friends

For teaching me how to fish
For coming up with new vegetarian grilling foods like our Eggplant 'hotdogs'
For campfire nights surrounded by family
Mr. Fix It projects
And all your passions in life!
You are an amazing human! 
Happy Father's Day!

A Foraging We Will Go - Y Acres Studio

 We had a request to create a gathering apron for an avid mushroom hunter.  She loves looking for morels as well as foraging for ramps, wild strawberries and other edible plants. She belongs to a foraging group and was looking forward to using one of our aprons for her next trip to the woods.
We chose this beautiful glow in the dark fabric with glowing fireflies and moons for one side
and the reverse side has glow in the dark deer and bunnies and owls.
Perfect for the next foraging adventure
Maybe the fireflies and the pebbles in the stream will help light the path home!
Good luck with the morel hunting!
We hope you fill your apron to the top!

Talking Trash

 Thursday night is trash night.  Let's be honest.  No one likes trash night.  No one likes dragging heavy dumpsters down the driveway alllllllll the way to the road. It is a stinky heavy job.  Usually Mr. Yesteryear Acres is the dragger of the receptacles. However.....tonight he WAS TOO BUSY! There was only one thing left to do.  Elicit expert assistance.
Ernie! The trash is too heavy for me to drag to the road.
What should I do?????
"Have Amelia do it."
Good thinking Ernie!
What a good doggie!
Thanks to your clever thinking, the trash is done!
