New Friends

 Gracie had so much fun with all her new friends this past weekend.
Playing Puppy with William
With chin scratches of course
It's important to learn about Tail Wagging Devotion from a young age!
Right William?
Mister Bear definitely agrees!
Ready for a walk? They are always best with company!
And treats are always extra tasty with your best buddy too!
Big Smiles all the way around! It is nice to make new friends!
We can't wait for your next stay Gracie!!
Until next time!

Stay Safe & Fabulous Y Acres Studio

With face masks still required in most places to keep yourself and others safe, it is always a fun idea to spice up your mask collection with some new fabrics!
Purple hues to make your grocery shopping groovy
subcut and ready to sew!
A purple-y perfect work week!
Next an order of fire reds
Have to make sure those pleats are symmetrical!
Orange you glad you have a new face wardrobe?
A perfect combination of hot and cold 
Happy Sunday from the Y Acres Studio
Stay Safe and Stay Fabulous!!!!

Self Care Caturday

Our sweet Devon Rex cats like to remind us to take some 'Me' time
That self care isn't selfish 
That right MEOW is the best time to do some Me Time
As long as you find a good spot to curl up
So if you are FELINE tired, just take a moment to relax
Take a deep breath
And let your stress be WHISKERED away
So grab a friend
And have yourself a PURRfect Self Care Caturday!

I know we will!

Always Amelia’s Birthday Bash!!

 Amelia’s 29th Birthday is today!!!! We had the best day celebrating this wonderful, smart, caring, sweet, hardworking, and animal loving young lady!! In true Yesteryear Acres form, we showed love in the best way we know how- with lots of food and animal snuggles!!!! 
The day started with beautiful freshly fallen snowflakes 
Followed by the birthday girl’s breakfast request of  fresh squeezed orange juice and cinnamon sugar toast
Time for a kitten cuddle or two 
And a mug of Birthday hot cocoa for a mid-day wish!
The final touches on Amelia’s birthday cake
It’s Banana cake and baked with love! 
Now for tackling tonight’s dinner menu- Chana Masala with Coconut Milk 
Vegetable goodness for the herbivore of course 
Homemade Curry from scratch! 
Don’t forget the garlic butter naan 
Now that’s a birthday dinner fit for celebration! 
But wait! save room for the cake! 
Blow out the candles and make a wish! 
We hope all your dreams come true Amelia! We love you so much!! Happy Birthday!!!

A Tale of Two Flatbreads

On tonight's dinner menu- Flatbread, and in true Yesteryear Acres style a Story as well.

Our story begins with two flatbreads, destined for greatness
Sliced cherry tomatoes
And a whole lot of avocados
Our flatbreads were then toasted with butter and garlic paste, then smeared with cream cheese straight out of the oven
Add the avocado, and by avocado we mean LOTS of avocado greatness
A dash of tomatoes and everything but the bagel seasoning
One with chicken... supervised by Miss Gracie and William of course
And voila!
One perfect meat lovers flatbread
And one vegetarian heaven flatbread artistically drizzled with a balsamic glaze
With that, our story comes to a delicious end with not a bite left to spare!

Mmmm! Until next tasty story time!
