Country Farm Walk ~

Welcome friends, how was your weekend?

It sure ended quickly...hard to believe it's
Monday already!

I love to rearrange my collections every chance it get...

This neat old drawer works perfect for displaying old worn and
tattered pinkeeps.

A couple Puzzle Balls mixed in with a few Pin Rolls!

Some of my favorite storage jars are 
antique Tobacco jars...

In my collection, I only have one jar that still has the original
metal clips on the sides!

The glass lid is stamped
Patented August 28, 1900.

These old jars are just perfect are storing 
sewing notions!

Here are some of my favorite jars in the Studio...

Thy work great for buttons, bone rings, shell rings, ribbon etc.

The possibilities are endless!

The first one was my Grandmother's, the middle one was left in the 
farmhouse when we bought it, the last one with the
Greek key design on the lid I acquired over the years.

I love the bigger size...oil cans, skeins of ribbon!
The last one is not a tobacco jar, but also works great.

Now, here's the line up!

On Friday, I'll share more of my antique jar collection and 
how I use them for other things in the Studio!

The best way to clear my head, is right here on our farm!

Please join me for a relaxing 
country farm walk...

While walking along, I was amazed to find this tiny little tree
sapling in on open field of tall grass with the
sweetest abandoned birds nest!

I wonder what kind of bird nested here?

Queen Ann's Lace...waving good bye for 2015!

Love the little patch of bright Goldenrod next to this
soft shade of purple.

A few late bloomers still trying to show off their colors!

What a great natural color combination!

These Purple Coneflower heads are full of seeds, just shake
them into your hand and the seeds will fall right out.

The Goldenrod is in full bloom...this unique looking bug
is really enjoying it!

This week I'll be busy stitching the model for 
Little Sparrow Pinkeep's next club piece.

I'll share more on Friday :)

And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three; but the greatest of
these is charity.

Take time to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!

Wishing you the best for this new week ahead...see you on Friday.

Two dove decoys...waiting to see what I'll fill the garden 
basket with?


  1. Enjoyed the walk. I try to notice something in nature every time I'm outdoors. Love your queen anne's lace-one of my all time favorites. The bird nest is a treasure.

  2. I was so interested to see you have the same wild flowers we have here in Ottawa, Canada. I get so much enjoyment from watching nature renew itself each year.
    Your stitching is lovely, by the way.

  3. Mother Nature at her finest...and you have a wonderful spot! Many blessings in the week ahead....

  4. I enjoyed your jars and your walk.

  5. I love your walk and seeing the flowers that just grow wild that I have to work at growing in my yard.
    I love seeing your jars of creativity! So inspiring! Have a great first day of September.

  6. Tammy: Love this post, so many lovely things to look at.
    Your collections are so beautiful, I love old jars and anything wooden that is old, what a lovely idea for the old drawer, it looks great.
    Thank-you for the nature walk, God has blessed us with so many beautiful and fascinating things to see and hear.
