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 ~

My first thought was....that's one ugly woman, but then I realized the lines on her face reflect years of worry and caring. With age comes great wisdom and I bet she has lots to share. Please dress her in something worthy of her . Purple might be her color. Can't wait to see. Oh, and don't forget shoes!!!

Now if that doesn't bring a smile to one's face...
Many a flight she's taken (on a broom of course), many a spell she's cast but her whimsical features are a delight.
