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 our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens or talking to the trees.
and 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 ~
I love seeing the past through the eye of my needle...

Thanks for commenting on the reason for Memorial Day. It seems people forget and think it is about barbeques, sales and the start of summer.

When I was VERY young and a Brownie, our troop would always march and the 'Memorial Day Parade' held in our beautiful town of Hawthorne N.Y.. Not only does it conjure up happy memories, but also somber ones for all those who gave up so much so we could have these pleasures. God Bless them ALL.

If you can't stand crowd then for sure get to event space NYC here early to start off your night. Our group did this just a few days ago and quaffed down some tasty beers and ciders before making our escape to further escapades in the city.
