My sweet boy Angus, photographed by my sweet friend, Stacey on a recent trip to the farm. She just grabbed my camera and snapped a few quick shots and seemingly with no effort came up with this photo of my best boy - Angus. He's getting older and I know that this will be one of my eternally favorite photos of Angus that I will always love. As you know, Angus was a rescue puppy and I have had him with me for the past 10 years. I've loved every minute of it.
Ha. This one cracks me up. Another Stacey shot of Molly checking out a blueberry.
My son Ryan, with "Meaty" as he calls Molly. She is a chunk and we love her anyway. Poor Molly is currently on a doggie diet of only dog food and veggies. We also have to limit her to her daily rations as she is a grazer like her Mom and will munch all day long if allowed.
Occassionally, a lone rider will pass by the farm in this instance one of our Amish neighbors. See the horse's ears standing straight up? That's because Angus was sounding the alarm by barking way too loudly. He just wouldn't stop until the horse and rider had passed the barn. My neighbor seemed to find this very amusing as Angus is only about a foot tall including his really big ears. What he lacks in size he more than compensates with his loud doggie voice. Wow, is that dog loud.
Sweet Dan is putting on the last coat of pain in my future studio space at the farm today. I am so excited about my future studio space. I currently work in my finished basement in the city, so I am super excited about all of those windows and bright white walls. The next step is installing the hardwood floors.
Lots and lots of windows. I will be able to view my flower garden from these three windows while I work. Bliss.
I purchased a chandelier for the studio today at one of my favorite antiquing venues. I love.love.love it!
I cleaned all of the crystals today and Sweet Dan is going to hang for me tomorrow.
Another vintage fixture for the guest bath ceiling. It was originally a tarnished brass, but with a fresh coat of glossy white paint it becomes perfect.
Some of my other favorite finds for the farm...
Lovely vintage cannister set.
Tiny procelain espresso set from Czechoslavakia.
Vintage aprons hanging from a French Rooster hook on my pantry door.
Green bakelite dominoes in an ironstone bowl.
And one sweet little cast iron bull dog.
I never get tired of designing my perfect sanctuary in the country. Isn't it fun finding something special to add to your home that just makes you happy whenever you look at them?
It's sunset and once again the sky is ablaze in hues of vibrant pink that looks so beautiful floating above the blue tones of the snow on the ground...what can I say, I am a country girl through and through. and it's here that I feel most like me.
