Last week it was so gorgeous, I just wanted to stay outside all the time! I couldn't get enough of walking up and down the big hill, any time of the day or early evening. The colors changed drastically through the week and this week, there are not too many leaves left on the trees. Here are some photos from one day.
Near the top of the hill, you can see the abandoned house I like to photograph.
Here it is later in the day after the sky had turned gray. What a difference a few hours makes. You can really see how the quality of the light changes too.
This barbed wire looks more complicated to untangle than yarn, doesn't it?
The mature ewes are wondering what is going on. They are grazing a new piece of pasture behind an abandoned barn.
The old milkhouse sits unused beside the pasture - a reminder of the past.
Closer to home, the lambs are always curious.
This sign is finally visible now that the leaves are blowing away.
Taking a walk is Phoebe and Ness's favorite activity.
Good day everyone!
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
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.
