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 kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...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 ~

{ Covert Operations }

Afternoons around here can get really sleepy...
especially if it is raining & cold outside
and inside it is warm and cozy.
so when it's like that, I tend to creep around with my camera
and catch the sleepy-folk around here ~

oh, hey Ig....I was

 I love when he falls asleep sitting up.
he hates when i embarass him.

 and here are the other sleepy-folk....
snoozing in the recliner together.
(pathetic, no?)
 as quiet as I could be...
I snapped the picture and Mr. Peach snapped open his bead-y eye...
...and then I was caught red handed by the Big Mr. Snooze!!
his eye snapped open & that's all she wrote...
I was totally & shamelessly guilty of covert paparazzi maneuvers.

Hey, If I can't take a nap,
...why should anybody else be able to?
