Old Windows & Art

I love, love, love old windows…and doors….and bits of wood…and…  So it is no wonder I am where I am with an old house with lots of old bits we are trying to restore and save and fix and live in and a work shop full of what some might call junk-trash, I call treasure. […]

A Wedding Quilt

My Other Girl is getting married!  This is the second member of Team Offspring to get married, but the first since I began quilting.  A wedding quilt is a big deal and a labor of love.  5 months ago, I asked the kids if anyone was making them one and if not, that I would […]

The ‘Great’ T-shirt Rug

We still need a LOT of rugs here, as the floors are cold.  While winter was upon us, I thought it would be a ‘great’ idea to make some rugs…or at least one.  After all Pinterest is loaded with beautiful rugs people have made from ‘stuff’ just lying around their house.  Wha-la, I thought, I […]

Tractor Bits of Art

It is no surprise, I like old stuff. Even when I don’t really know what it is, say… old farm, tractor, truck stuff… So, when we went to pick up Blue and My Loving Spouse was haggling over the details, I went for a walk around what looks like a junk yard, but is really […]

Welding Blind

Our latest travelers from ‘across the pond’,  long time friends (see how I didn’t say ‘old’) of My Loving Spouse came to the farm ‘on holiday’, which is what the English call a ‘vacation’.  Both chefs, the Chief Chef having taught catering for years, (yes, he has cooked for the queen) and his better half a […]

Creative Moments

I often struggle with stopping work to ‘play’ with creative bits.  Luckily My Loving Spouse believes in the benefit of my doing so and I am fortunate that Number One Wife also loves to make ‘stuff’ with me.  Working around the Damn Cat, however is another issue…. I am not someone who can sit down and […]

Our Barn Quilt

Glory Farm’s Barn Quilt is up! The process was not simple or quick… Most good things seem to take a group effort and this was no exception. The first Barn Quilt Trail in Washington is quite new and we first heard about the project 4 months ago.  It was intriguing, as I remembered seeing barn […]

The Laundry Room

In the all important ‘big’ picture, the laundry room will someday be moved and the space incorporated into the Master bathroom to make it… masterful.  However, for now the Queen of the Laundry (me) has had an awkward, tired, COLD and depressing room to work in.  We needed to make a change.  Some of us […]

‘The’ Ornaments

Our own winter wonderland, the farm is gorgeous with only the red barns, trees and fences standing out in the clean white snow.  The snow has been falling for a some time now, so the reality of farm life (the mole hills and the animal poop) are covered and we can forget they are there […]

Creativity

The rip out, remodel, repair, restore, Advil dance continues, but we’ve added a bit of creativity (and its frustration) to the mix.  We’ve been asked to host a barn sale here at Glory Farm with multiple vendors  in a few weeks, which has been the driving force behind the BIG barn clean up.  We expect there […]
