it is a beautiful, COLD here day on the farm today...
the air is still & crisp...the kind that stings your nose & awakens your lungs.
...our wood stoves are banked and the farmhouse is again
a cozy nest filled with sunlight & the scent of simmering spices...
it's on days like this that I truly love our humble home
...and thought I'd share a few snaps with you ~
I found the vintage crocheted runner at Vintage on Main, a loverly little shop
here in Amherst, VA.
my 'married' tea-set...
all found in different shops locally...
a chippy white candle box & blue and white childs' quilt
warms this corner of our keeping room...
An early blue basket filled with dried herbs & feathers
tops one of our cupboards...
a beautiful conch shell set into one of my ironstone tureens
graces my step back cupboard ~
I love seashells and have collected them since growing up along the coast of New England.
Today will be spent cleaning & rearranging the shop ~
getting ready for the new items that will be coming in...
it will have a fresh, new "old" Farmhouse look to it & I'm excited about
bringing you new, different items for your home ~
...along with supplies for needlework of course!
The shop is now open
