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 ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

Thanks so much for all of your comments on my previous post ~ 
I truly enjoyed reading all of the posts on how you all love the Springtime!

I agree with all of you, on the love we all have for Spring ~ 
the birdsong, fresh laundry on the things & flowers everywhere
 but you all must know by now my favorite is all of the little ones that are born in the Spring ~

here are a few older snaps from around here a few years back:

cant wait for my daff's to bloom fully!

eggs I dyed using onion skins ~ and paper silhouttes

tiny peeps in my hubby's gentle hands ~ these two are full grown now and our best layers!

fresh flowers in the farmhouse ~ nothing better
 So without further ado ~
I used the Random Number Generator at 
{out of 129 comments}
and the number 113 was chosen ~

"Most of all I favor the pussy-willow, the first sign of Spring and birth to new life, 
like the all the birds and flowers.
It would be wonderful to actually have one of your handmade pieces."
