lights will guide you home

Winter in the country is dark.  Quiet & dark.

Night comes early, and I am amazed that all that often
lights the farm are just 4 lights: our security & porch lights 
outside and a kitchen & livingroom light inside.  Acres
and acres and just four lights.

When I used to travel to an office in Madison, I would
return late on Thursday night.  Knowing how much I 
had missed home, Dave would "light" up the farm...
turning on every light ~~ like a beacon.  

I like both: 
Knowing home by heart...just like I do when I 
get up in the middle of the night.  
And knowing home by how it reaches out to me 
across the fields, lighting the night sky like a shooting star.

Lights will guide you home...





To my Ian... "Lights will guide you home".  (Coldplay)
Safe travels my son.

sweet February

We mark winter based on our animal feed....our supply
of hay is at the half way mark on the way to spring.

And in the middle of winter sweet February arrives.  I adore getting
out hearts & vintage Valentines...sweet sweet February.

sweet hearts



Valentine's Day is such a favorite celebration...and when it 
arrives at Meadowview Farm, it arrives with charm.


Our dining room hutch all ready for Valentine's Day!


Love red, checkerboard & tin...and of course a heart or two!

hearts on my mind



28 years ago I made these hearts as I awaited the birth of my Ian!
They remind me of that young Kari...with hearts on her mind!

all is calm...



Daisy Grace at rest...a moment of sweet contentment in the
busy life of a kitten.

May you find sweet contentment in 2016!

Christmas wishes


Several years ago I climbed through a snow drift to catch this 
picture of our house in fresh snow.  This will always be a magical moment...
a warm, well loved home on a snowy day ~ an embrace.

Wishing you & yours that mix of home, love & the magic of the season.

                Vintage wrapped boxes & a bowl of ornaments.

a few of my favorite things for the holidays



Yes, I certainly "live what I sell"!

When I go on an antiquing trip to purchase for resale, one of my questions is~~
"Would I keep it if it doesn't sell?" ~~ I have to answer "yes" to this.

You will always find these favorites (pictured above at my home) for sale
at my booth or case at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall:

~Ironstone 
~chippy little benches
~Vintage holiday
~baskets
~wire works
~anything in multiples
