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 ~

~ Rainy Days ~

it is raining buckets!
cats! dogs! chickens and sheep!
even a few donkeys too ~
{oh and puppies! ours are 1 year old today}
 Happy Birthday
 ~ Big, Dolly, June, Grizzly, Bruno & Nico!

I love the rain,
but you already know that...

I'll put on the tea kettle 
and nestle in to my chair and hook more on this rug ~

 I like this wool for the border, below:

we need a new patio umbrella...
I want a yellow & white striped one!

~ everything is green-ing but sloshy.
oh cannot wait for my lilacs to bloom!

 enjoy your day my sweet friends ~
no matter the weather.

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori

I love visiting your farmhouse, Lori! Everything is so neat and cozy and welcoming, even from far, far away! I love the rain, too...wish we'd get more of it...

A yellow-and-white striped umbrella would be just the thing...and your "Corny" rug is looking great...awesome border choice.

Things are bursting out all over Moonflower seeds have popped through! Yay!

There will come a day when I can stay home and hook and not have to rush out of the house for work.
