to celebrate the publication of my new book


Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.

This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.

The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.

More Spring Color at Leyden Glen Farm

It's really great to walk out the door in the morning and see something that isn't brown or grey or white. Color is popping out all over. The Virginia Bluebells Mom gave me a few years ago are starting to become established and spreading out under our silver maple tree.

Lovely ornamental cheery buds before they pop into bloom.

Fresh green grass for the sheep to eat.

Little wild violets in clumps throughout the garden

Good weekend everyone.

Beautiful mother nature happenin' on your farm! The appearance of spring like that is so uplifting.

Love your Spring colors! I was gifted some Virginia Blue Bells as well- I love them. It's so interesting how after they bloom the leaves quickly disappear and go dormant until the following year.

The closed buds look so sweet. I love it when they show up, it's filling me with hope and wait.
