The Squirrels Nest

Our new home away from home. Well with much looking we have finally found our camper. We have had a couple over the last few years and we finally found the one we have been wanting. A fifth wheel. It is a 1988 Jayco that is 29 ft long. YEAHHHH. We are so excited and so looking forward to camping trips ahead this year and years to come. It has lots of space and the floor plans is just right for us. With only me and Earl and occassionally Ethan camping with us it is perfect for our family. The dogs can go with us and have plenty of room to play if the weather is not fit for us to go while camping. Lots of storage for the generator and our coolers. Plenty of space for those who we invite to spend the night with us in the wilds of North Georgia. WOOT WOOT.......

February Fury

Well February has come in with fun at Blissdom in Nashville and now we have snow, snow, and more snow. Its so beautiful to see it falling and look down thru the woods and you can see forever it seems. The critters are enjoying it and so are we. We went sledding down a small hill and even tho it melted the next day it sure was fun. But we got up this morning to more snow flakes fallin but not much laid. But the weather man says more tonight and tomorrow so maybe it will lay once again and we will have some more fun in the snow.

Meet My New Nephew

On January 25, 2010 the newest member of the family arrived at 4:45 am. Christian Zane Barnhart made his debut in the wee hours of the morning. Weighing in at just 6lbs 6oz he is the most precious little bundle of joy. My baby brother, Sam, is a very proud papa, and Crystal is a very proud mama. And they should be, he is just perfect. From his perfectly round head to his tiny little feet. Zane, as he will called, is the baby brother to Tyler, Chase, Faith and Brayden.

Critter Pics

I Wish we had more days with snow. I really enjoyed seeing it. I lived in Ohio as a kid and we had big snows. We would go sled riding and walk on the ice when the creeks froze over. We use to have a blast. We even went to school when we had took some pics of the gang today so I thought I would post some.

We Blog Conference in May

I would love to be included in the We Blog Conference held in May by
3 Boys and a Dog and The Post-It Place. I think it would be a great opportunity for me to learn more about blogging. I am just starting out and so all the information I can get to better further my knowledge about blogging would be very beneficial.

As to what I could bring to the table, as a newbie to the blogging world I can bring insight as to what the beginner is looking for and where we can gain knowledge on blogging. I hope to come away from this conference with life long blogging friends and the knowledge and confidence to continue on my journey.

As a fan of the Discovery Channel I would like to thank them for this opportunity to be apart of this conference. Also I would like to thank the GlenStone Lodge for a beautiful place to hold such a awesome conference.

Snow Snow Snow

The snow has finally arrived and even tho its coming down slowly I am still tickled. Everyone is bedded down for the night with warm beds, food and fresh warm water. Jethro being from Florida has never experienced snow before so he was tickled to go out and play in it. Here is a pic of the snow at my house so far. I will post more later.

Read more about it:

The Damascene Technique. Damascene is a complex decorative technique that involves the embellishment of iron objects via the application of golden and silver threads, thanks to different procedures such as the pressure of hammering and polishing. This is a very ancient form of art originally from the Islamic part of Asia. It developed greatly in Spain during the time of the Moorish presence on the peninsula. L’izzura is currently working together with the last craftsman devoted to this technique.

L'izzura stands for luxury and elegance, glamour and also exclusivity. We believe that unique pieces made one-by-one by hand possess all these values, as they are unique and unrepeatable pieces.

Damascene is a traditional technique we have wished to recover owing to its preciousness and beauty – a genuine work of art that brings total exclusivity to our designs.

L'izzura customizes any of the items of clothing from the catalogue with sets of buttons and buckles made using this technique. Please contact us at and we will design the pieces according to your needs.
