I have never been timid with color.  Although I admire
the white on white palette, it has never been for me.

I am drawn to color.

Layer upon layer upon layer...

Little Moo

There are these moments you know you will never forget...
Such was Monday evening.
Our timid patriarch goat was ill, the vet was called.
We knew what was right.
While we waited, I sat next to Little Moo, stroking the thick black fur on his neck.
We talked about his long life at his farm and how he had blessed my life.
We listened to the lullaby he had heard at dusk a thousand times...
  a leaf against the straw, the wind on the barn flaps, the coo from the silo.

Little Moo left us quietly & bravely...just as he had lived.

little white holder

One of my favorite finds is this sweet white holder.
Paired with vintage Easter grass & bunny & chick cutters...

Some sweet pot holders & dish towels round out the charm.

April, sigh...

This month always brings with it a sigh of relief.
In the Midwest, it means we made it through winter.

So, I treat my home to sweet spring treats.

The vintage wicker & glass tray is perfect to show some of
my vintage spring cards.  The teapot is from my childhood
home.  The firkin was a fabulous $30 find!  And the zinc 
topped trunk provides the perfect coffee table.

Happy April!  Happy Spring!

spring kindness

For a number of years, "kindness" has been anonymously left at
our roadside mailbox to commemorate spring.  This year was no 
exception.  We arrived home to find this sweet vintage watering can
tucked into the evergreens that winter at our mailbox.  

Thank you dear friend, whoever you are.  You make me feel ever 
so special...and you remind me that spring always returns.  You are 
like my extra special Robin.  I am touched!

hello sweetie!

Green - check!
Chippy - check!
Needed storage - check!

This sweet cupboard had to come home to our farm!

           Our kitchen always can use more storage!

Her "sister from another mother" lives on the other side...
           next to our hardworking jelly cupboard.

The new green cupboard freed up space in the jelly 
            cupboard...cleaned & reorganized!

Green, green, green!  Be still my happy heart! The new 
cupboard can be seen on the left next to the fridge. 
Kitty ribbon on the floor...they love the kitchen too!

Oops, I did it again...

I found a second French enamelware pitcher for an
incredible price.  Was all set to resell....then it found a spot
with the blue one in my farmhouse. least for awhile!

gentle farewell

Saying goodbye to a pet is just never easy.  Over the years we
have become very attached to all of our dear hearts...even those
that call the barn home. 

In the early morning hours, dear Chestnut Violet ~ one of our oldest kittens
born on this farm passed on.  She will be greeted in a heavenly meadow by many
beloved siblings and one Taffy goat.

We will miss you Nutskie...

May her memory be for a blessing.
