Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

I am a super organizer - if things are out of whack, they drive me nuts. My one little babe has her own galvanized metal trough from Tractor Supply that sits on the floor. Cheap, practical, and easy for little hands to bend down and find the warm accessory of the day. I am impressed with your handy-lady skills! I have several projects that I have been waiting on my husband to do - maybe I'll have to just step up to the plate myself!

Today I am thankful for... -The last lawn mowing of the year, done under a vivid blue sky filled with white puffy clouds, in the first really cool temperatures of the season. The little babe was running around the yard in her fleece bunting, her face and hands covered in... Continue reading

Hmm, I'm thinking we might need to perhaps change our wood keeping arrangement. We currently have one of the metal, two tiered racks, which only holds about 4 trips worth of wood for my husband. He normally ends up stacking more wood on the floor around the woodstove, which I hate. Space is at a premium in our house though, so it will take some figuring. What a great project for you and your youngest babe. :) And your home looks lovely, warm, and full of good nature finds and handmade goodness.

Tonight in the fridge I had leftover goat cheese and a combination of mashed pumpkin and sweet potato from the little babe's birthday party. I also had some fresh sage leaves that we got in the CSA share this week. I was going to make pumpkin muffins, but while looking... Continue reading

Crazy isn't it? How nature is turned into events and commercialized. Trees losing their leaves - guess that will be a learning opportunity for Bella.
Thanks Chrisy - hats for toddlers go fast! That's why she has about 8 of them!

I do love knitting in the car, but sometimes I feel guilty that I'm not pulling my share!

Last year for the little babe's first birthday, a family friend offered to make her a quilt. I was thrilled - what a fantastic gift! Between the two of us, it took a year, and at the little babe's second birthday party last Sunday, the quilt was unveiled. It is... Continue reading

As an animal lover with romantic dreams of farm life to come, I really enjoyed this post. Autumn is such a lovely time of year on a New England farm (at least in pictures!)

My Mom and I recently went to a small local fiber event. A local non-profit was selling yarn that people had donated. All the skeins were only $1! I bought this multi-colored, soft hued, huge ball of squishy yarn. I had no idea what it was - I was hoping... Continue reading
