Farm Mail from Gail

It’s finally here ~ glorious Fall!!!

I am SO grateful (and a little surprised) that we are seeing such beautiful autumn color after that brutal summer we had! Our garden certainly did a turn-around after a 5” rain. I like to nestle a bright orange pumpkin down amongst the (very happy) purple alyssum for a great color pop. And I must admit – I’ve never been so delighted to go out and pull weeds from pliable soil in pleasant temperatures!

But on to inside ‘chores’. You should see what Cheryl’s been doing with the beloved pumpkins. ‘Be-jeweled’ is all I can say! You’ll have to come to Open House to see! And our new Farm Girl, Jean, puts her own fresh twist on the little darlings too. 

 Of course, we’ll have all styles of seasonal home d├ęcor, from glittery to gorgeous. So, I hope you can join us – we’ll have the usual spread of goodies, plus Shannon will be here with CUPCAKE tasting! And Shelley will be demonstrating her wonderful rug looming.

Fall Open House: Saturday Oct 6, 10-5 and Sunday Oct 7, 1-4.

Plan ahead: Christmas Open House: Saturday Dec 1, 10-5 and Sunday Dec 2, 1-4. 

Hours – Tue thru Sat, 10-5
