Simple Sunday Pleasures

Hello Friends!
hoping your Sunday is a quiet, peaceful & creative one ~
I've been digging in the dirt...

our potato patch is now yielding tender new potatoes ~
just perfect for a little butter, salt & pepper.
I did make German potato salad with these last night to bring to Bea's house for supper...

here are a few snapshots of Bea's humble little farm...

|isn't this clever?
she took a PVC pipe, some old farm implements and made a Sunflower
...and a place to grow her Hens & chicks!!!

here's a closer look:

here's Bea's HUGE rosemary bush, pretty!

I Love tractors!
(yes, I drive them and yes, they ARE sexy!!)
This one is Bea's fathers...his name is Albert and he is quite the gardener :)

here's just a small portion of ONE of his gardens...
not sure of how many he has, but he has thee greenest thumb !!

Nature is beautiful, isn't it?

and here are a few shots of inside her home...
Bea loves to decorate with found treasures ~

(the portraits are her ancestors & I love them)

 here's a corner cupboard in her kitchen, that displays her love for all things old...

This is Bea's kitty-girl, 'Binx' ~
she has been sleeping in one of her plants on the kitchen windowsill!!!!

a collection of ball jars on a shelf that Albert built for her kitchen...
SO prim!!!

another little shelf built by Bea's sweet father for her....

and yet another little rack built by his hands,
this one holds her rolling pins & wooden spoon collection ~

notice the hooked rug?

Bea is an accomplished primitive rug hooker and has many of them in her home...
this one is of a little Robin ~

Bea sells her rugs and primitive jar candles under her name,
"Glory Bea Primitives" on ebay.

Hoping you enjoyed today's post,
I'll be enjoying my Sunday by decorating my front porch!!!
(I'll share pictures of it with you tomorrow)

Blessings from the Farm!
