Tomorrow is officially the first day of fall. So, I guess that I should start filling The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy with items made in the most beautiful combinations of fall colors. To that end, I just added the first four sets of our Coloni
This Small Egg Basket is coming together at the sewing machine this morning. I can almost picture a few speckled brown eggs nestled in there, can't you?
This beauty was just added to our shop. Don't you just love this combination of fabrics and colors? https://www.etsy.com/listing/201362920/medium-egg-basket-0442
A few of our most popular product ideas have been generated by our 1840 Farm Community. You asked for fabric trivets and coasters and they have been a hit with our customers. Then you asked for a basket that had longer handles to be carried over your wr
Our End of the Year Sale is still going on strong in our Etsy Shop. There are three items in stock and ready to ship that have been marked down by more than 25%! Selling these beautiful Fall items at such an extreme discount will make room for our Sprin
You've been patiently waiting for me to share details about our newest line of handmade products. I hope that you love the first design as much as we do. We're already working on the next designs and will have more to share very soon. I can't wait to h
How about a Medium Egg Basket in bold primary colors?
Working with these fabrics seems like a good way to spend a rainy Saturday. I love how this basket is coming together, don't you?
When this patchwork basket is finished, it will include snippets of handwrapped cord from eight of our past basket projects. I hope that you're ready for a very unique and colorful basket!
Hmm. Where should I begin?
With a cup of coffee at my side, it is time to answer the important question: how many heart shaped baskets can I stitch today? #1840farm #handmade #fabric #sew #basket
I just added 1840 Farm Gift Certificates to our shop. Thanks to your input, I included an option to select fabric or twine to be used when making each certificate. We can make these in any denomination and take the guesswork out of choosing a gift for s
Perhaps I can finish a basket for our shop before shitting down the sewing machine for the day. Wish me luck!
I just put the final stitches in this Large Tote Basket. I love how the color pattern came together. This was the first basket that I made using this combination of colors, but I don't think that it will be my last. I can't wait to work with these fabri
This beautiful collection of baskets are headed to the post office this morning. I am hoping that these ten orders will get out ahead of our impending storm so that they can begin their journey to our customers. I have my fingers crossed that they won't g
The very first Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Basket is leaving the studio today. I decided that it needed an appropriately festive thank you card and recipe card to go along with it. They're both decorated with a simple barn red heart with white stitchin
It's hot and humid outside, so I'm settled in at the sewing machine inside the farmhouse today. This Large Tote Basket is taking shape in shades of blue, peach, deep purple, sage green, and cream. I love this combination and can't wait to put the finish
Often, I struggle with condensing my thoughts into a concise statement. That was certainly the case when I was working to create a special tag for the baskets in our new Handmade & Heartfelt Collection. These baskets will have a theme and raise money fo

Handmade on August 2, 2014
There are certain color combinations that I never tire of. Blue, yellow, and white are at the top of that list. It's no wonder that our farmhouse kitchen is painted in these colors!
A member of our 1840 Farm Community named this style of basket for us. Serendipity seems like the perfect way to describe this lovely combination of random colors and patterns. I hope that you like it as much as I do because it is destined for our Etsy Sh
Yesterday's pink basket with gingham and polka dots was so popular that I made another one. I just added Small Egg Basket #0521 to our shop. I hope that you like this pink beauty as much as yesterday's! www.1840farm.etsy.com

A few weeks ago, I asked you to tell me what colors you wanted to see used in our Fall Collection. Many of you mentioned that you wanted to see dark purple added to the traditional fall leaf colors. I couldn't wait to see eggplant purple with chocolate br
During the next week, The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop will be getting ready for fall. I'm not in any hurry for summer to come to an end. I plan to enjoy every last moment of summer. Many of you have already requested baskets in fall colors. It won't be lo
The first three 1840 Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Kits have been added to our Etsy shop. I'll be adding several more over the next few days including a few in fall colors just in time for holding sunflowers fresh from the garden. Which one of these three k

I just started working with this beautiful combination of fall colored fabrics. I love how they are coming together. Now I just need to decide if I should make an Egg Basket or a Table Basket for our shop. I'm hoping that you will help me make the decisi
Since opening The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy, we've mailed out more than 425 orders. It's hard to believe that we've sent more than 500 baskets and other items to customers in the U.S., Canada, Alaska, and Australia. Yet here I sit, writing a han
I am hoping to spend some quality time at the sewing machine this morning. When I do, I'll be sure to share plenty of photos with you. I hope that you're ready for a steady stream of fabric baskets in your newsfeed. But first, coffee and a few thank yo
Sewing until 2:00am means two things. First, I am going to need extra coffee this morning. More importantly, there are two beautiful new baskets to add to our shop. Stay tuned for more photos and links to the listings after I have had a cup (or two) of c

I just added a preorder listing for our Apple Harvest exclusive fabric. So many of you had asked that I let you place your orders while our fabric is in production and now you can. We'll be placing another order before the end of the week and will add i

Remember that beautiful basket I was working on this weekend? Here it is finished as a Medium Egg Basket. I love this bright combination of colors, don't you?
