This Little farm house sits on acres of farm fields. The size is not grandiose and the design is quite simple. But in my mind it is grandiose and quite magnificent. I can picture my Dad running through the fields with his sister, my great grandfather working in his print shop and my great grandmother sitting on the porch. My Dad lived a short drive down the road but spent a lot of his time here. It is my heritage and my Dad instilled that in us. The farm has become a visual point to remember my Dad. He passed away very suddenly in April 2007. The blog and shop were started from this memory and fittingly named after this beautiful farm.
I have been thinking lately about these reasons why I started the blog and store. I worry so often how many or who is going to comment on blog or if anyone will purchase from my shop. These are not the reasons why I first started. It is very important for me to be authentic and to use this as a creative outlet . So we are getting back to basics, back to the drawing board. When I first started "the little shop" I put a lot of what I thought "should" be there instead of what I "wanted" there. So in the weeks to come we will be CHANGING THINGS UP just a bit.
And for the whole reason I am here, the blog. We have neglected it just a bit and I miss it. So we have changed the name up a bit you can see above. Weekly we will be bringing you Farm Fresh Ideas including decorating and craft pics, recipes, family pics I adore and a little shop talk. So for me it is very important to be genuine to myself and that is what I am off to do. Stay tuned for some Farm Fresh Ideas~
