~ Rainy Days ~

it is raining buckets!
cats! dogs! chickens and sheep!
even a few donkeys too ~
{oh and puppies! ours are 1 year old today}
 Happy Birthday
 ~ Big, Dolly, June, Grizzly, Bruno & Nico!


I love the rain,
but you already know that...


I'll put on the tea kettle 
and nestle in to my chair and hook more on this rug ~

 I like this wool for the border, below:





we need a new patio umbrella...
I want a yellow & white striped one!

~ everything is green-ing but sloshy.
oh cannot wait for my lilacs to bloom!

 enjoy your day my sweet friends ~
no matter the weather.

~ Shop Photos from Open House and other news!! ~

Good Sunday Morning 
~ Friends & Folk ~

I've been waiting to show you photos of our newly renovated shop,
and here they are!

Yesterday was our official re-opening ~  
after weeks and weeks of being closed while Peter & Chris worked their magic...

let's take a tour!


{finally got my purple front door!}

{ the 'big' room now holds class/work/display tables }

{ new pegboard was added throughout the entire shop to hold our models }

{ Peter built shelving complete;y around the shop for merchandise }

{ Updated our furniture with a fresh coat of paint }

{ new shiny racks hold our wools in the 'wool' room! }

{ models can be seen more clearly due to new gallery track lighting }

{ white painted floors make it see so much larger }

{ wool racks have wheels so I can move them about }

{ Old favorites like our sewing tables that Peter made are still with us and put to work for display }

{lighter, brighter and farm-fresh!}

{got wool?  ~ we do!}

{ everything in it's place }

{ Peter made the lattice toppers in all of the windows }

{ new bright lighting over the counter }

{ a new look to the woodstove area with beautiful tile }

{ and I even have a cozy chair to hook in front of the woodstove now! }

Miss Joan came out to lend a hand, {thank you dear fiend}
and Pepper was here to greet you too ~ as she cannot leave Peter's side.
Roxy and the pups stayed busy in the barn all day...

Inside, outside and all around ~
such a difference in the way our little shop looks now!


I am blessed to be married to this wonderfully talented, 
hard working, kind and gentle, always-giving, full of love, helpful, & hope-full person ~
Peter,
thank you for doing what you do for us to make such a wonderful life.
It is sometimes rough, and sometimes we are so tired that we seem to pass the days in a blur ~
but we are together, healthy & happy.

I couldn't have wished for a better partner in life and love.

{ a RARE sighting of Peter sitting down }
