I love old, vintage and shabby. Give me a white picket fence & farmhouse with chickens, horses and grandchildren any day. I love to garden and watch things blossom. Nature is amazing all by itself. I love "old souls" who know the meaning of life and are willing to share it with you. Watching the waves crash against the beach is better than therapy. I wish I learned how to surf. But I will teach my grandchild. PS. I have integrated my etsy shop into this blog.

How Can You Tell If Summer Is Here?
Well, let's start by saying the kids are out of school for the summer. That is always a sure sign that summer is here. But, even so, there are still chores to do on the farm. Milking the cows, feeding the chickens, slopping the pigs. You get my point. Early to rise with mom's hardy breakfast, chores and then maybe some fun things to do with the other neighbors. Down to the swimming pond, riding bikes, picking strawberries then helping mom bake a pie. Fresh cream from this mornings milking the cows. Mom will pick then dry her herbs from her garden. Summer is a busy time on the farm. The haying needs to be done, canning our harvested veggies and fruits. Yes, life on the farm is very rewarding.
