Down on the Farm




I found this darling piece of farm ephemera at an estate sale in one of Portland's beautiful, older homes up in the West Hills. Some child did a wonderful job of making this little pictorial of a farm oriented scene. I keep it in my kitchen.


It is so cute the way this piece can be turned open to reveal the hens!



Have I no pride? My kerosene chimney is in need of spring cleaning as it lights up my sheep, and hens and bunnies high atop my baker's table. Above it is my favorite Edward Hicks painting of a wonderful old Pennsylvania farm scene.


Two butter molds nesting in my wooden bowl shelving unit. Time to churn that butter!



This beautiful sunshine overlooking the hills and valleys is derived from a Betty Caithness design that I painted. I painted it onto a piece of roof shingling that dates back to the 1830's from our old house in Ohio. It hangs outside on our porch by the kitchen door.

Thank you for sharing all your beautiful things! I love taking a peek into your home and seeing all the things displayed with such care and grace. Your new little scrap art is adorable and your shingle painting is beautiful!

Oooh! Lots of treasures to look at. That farm is precious--and a great find. Your painting on the shingle is wonderful...all crackled and soft and old looking.

Thanks for sharing your home with us. Looking forward to receiving the little book from you.

Still not quite spring in New England--but hopefully, soon we will see some sun and warm weather without so much wind. Your painting on the shingle really does exude feelings of warmer weather and the promise of spring and summer.

Hi Christine....I was so looking forward to getting together with you with my last trip to Oregon but alas it wasn't meant to be. Your home would have flooded my head with memories of my childhood growing up there. I hope we can connect on my next trip to Oregon. Pam
