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.

Craving Color and Guess What? Lambs


I'm feeling like a broken record. Lambs, lambs, lambs, and ecru colored wool, brown mud and muck, straw, hay, and winter gray. When I look back on my blog which has become a record of my life and all the lives here at our farm, the winter months are full of these colors. I can't wait until spring breaks around here and we see something else.

Busy week here. I had a photo shoot on Monday with the team of Gridley + Graves, Interior Photographers. It was a fun day watching them work and making the photos. Real professionals for sure. 

They shot tethered which was interesting to watch and be part of. I'll let you all know when the magazine hits. Lovely people and lots of fun stories shared. They brought me tulips - well actually they weren't for me - they were for the photos. But they left them for us.

Nice to have some color in the house. I don't buy flowers so I do crave spring when I can find bouquets outside.

Lambs are still coming. 

Four sets of twins on Monday. 


Hope you all are having a good week.

So much wonderful life is teeming at your farm, Kristin! I never tire of seeing those precious faces and proud mamas.

Daylight savings time starts Sunday, woohoo! Longer days for spring to percolate and bloom.

The tulips are a wonderful pop of color on this gray, dreary day! Love the lamb turning around as if to say, are you coming with me?
