Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...chasing our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens or talking to the trees.
...
and I collect old & odd things.

I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh ~ I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~
I love seeing the past through the eye of my needle...

~ Ramblings and Such ~

On My Desk:
tiny glass-globed watercolor renderings
 encased in silver metal onto which one holds their scissors about their necks:




 ...and also a few original watercolor paintings, altho tiny ~ 
'housed in hand-painted and distressed wooden frames, for those who love all-sorts of magical garden-y sprites and things having to do with stitching and needlework.
 

and paper-y goodness of the cross stitch chart-type 
along with the beginnings of black magic marker'd sketches of the same design,
 but for those who ply their needles differently. 


 I rode the lawn tractor for 2 hours today ~
only to almost finish the entire grounds {6 acres}
when another downpour of buckets-full came down upon me...
~ making me then drive said lawn tractor like a maniacal Ms. Pac-man-on-crack to our garage.
Oy.
 
Wet but not deterred, shaken but not quite stirred...


Blessings from the Farm
