BEST LOCAL PRODUCT- Thank you!!!!







First off...

THANK YOU! 


We learned that we won "Best Local Product" again this year in BayouLife Magazine's Bayou Buzz Awards. 
Wow!!! 
To think that we won this over some folks/businesses that we adore and respect like Kelly Moore Bags and Flying Tiger Brewery, is pretty amazing to us. 
  We are really appreciative and decided to take out an ad to thank all of you featuring our two kiddos ~ Pearson (aka Mr P) and Phoebe. 




Photo shoots are funny things. Especially when you are trying to do one for an ad in a magazine that will come out a whole month later. We wanted to show one of our newest tees ~ the Watermelon Chicken shirt and feature our kids wearing it in our big garden. When we found out we won, there was not a whole lot of time... luckily, our friend Kelly Moore Clark was able to squeeze in some pics for us one evening before the rain hit. 

So here is the new design....

They really are all hand drawn by me! No clip art!!! 



We try to create tees that have some sort of special meaning to us.......In our other life (besides  the tees, and me being a talented art teacher and Brent selling windows and doors, we like to pretend that we are "farmers".....

We like to "grow stuff!".... 

and we have a dozen Hens and they LOVE watermelon!!!!  YUM
Last year, you may remember that we grew pumpkins and we had a funny Pumpkin patch tee that represented our adventures in trying to grow them. 

 Art Imitating Life 



This year,
we are attempting watermelon and cantaloupe... so far, so good. But, the watermelon and cantaloupe are TINY!!! 

Nothing you want the public to see for the moment. They are smaller than my shoes!!!! Hahahah 

  Fake it until you Make it!!! - Right?!? 

  So, poor Brent and P went on a mission to find some really big impressive watermelon in the grocery stores so that we could place it around our patch for the shoot. 

They ended up at Super 1 in West Monroe and bought 4 biggies. 

Thank goodness I remembered to peal off those big red stickers! HA


Brent placed them around the vines.


And Kelly went and caught one of our hens for Phoebe to hold in the photo. That would be Posey the Chicken :)

Hopefully, 
OUR watermelon will look this good and be this BIG next month........to be continued.


Thank you again for voting for us for Best Local Product. We are proud to say that we have donated more than $75,000 back to our community and region since 2013. Pretty amazing for this little small family owned company!!!

Love
Lissy
