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 ~

~ Peaceful Sunday Musings ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk!
Is it really July 8th?
you would never know it by the temperatures outside today...
feels more like my beloved Autumn ~ and I will take it!

After my farm chores,
I think I'll grab my camera and head out to the big field 
and woods for some much-needed nature walking ~
good fresh air after all of the humidity these last weeks!

Speaking of farm chores, or rather farmHOUSE chores....
my sewing room/studio needs a major clean up ~

I kinda left it in it's messy glory while I was in CT last week,
but now need to tidy it up...
{not as messy as it has been before, and undoubtedly will be again}

Iggy doesn't mind though.
as long as I don't pile anything up on my  his chair ~
all will be well.

my beautiful blood lily is in bloom!
{aka fire lily}

and the bumblers are enjoying the bee balm...
so am I.

Hoping your Sunday is a beautifully-peace-full one!
Blessings from the Farm

A messy project room is the sign of a creative and busy mind! And that you most certainly have, m'dear! BTW, I love that mirror!! Beautiful gardens, all around. Red Bee Balm is my favorite, but for some reason they are hard to find, so I settle (oooh. that's not nice to say!) for the purple/pink ones...
