The sun is shining through my studio window as I watch these beautiful fabrics go around and around at the sewing machine. Songbirds and happy hens are providing the soundtrack and an extra cup of coffee is coming in handy to get me going in the right dir
I love to use Mason jars throughout the farmhouse. One of my favorite ways to repurpose them is by using a large jar as a vase for flowers collected from our perennial gardens. In fact, I shared a photo with all of you during peony season that featured on
