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...

Our Needlework Shop & Studio
is located here at our farm:

{ a new day }

We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and its first chapter is
... New Year's Day.

~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
I love that quote...
it sums it up.
no resolutions, no regrets...
just keep living life as a new chapter unfolds for us.

it is our book,
and we can begin it again any way we like.....
how refreshing & peaceful to our hearts & minds!!!
Wishing you all a Blessed New Year!
