The very non glamorous part of large home renovation projects. This dumpster currently holds our old roof, a complete 1970's yellow bathroom, most of a termite eaten retaining wall, and a few other random bits. Waiting on our big boy to help with the last bits that the one arm bandit (Joe's nickname this month, 😂) and I can't do alone. Let me tell you, lifting buckets of debris and large chunks of old rotten wood over your head and throwing them into this monster is one hell of a workout. 💪
The drying room. 😂😂 Also, the most practical thing to do when you buy a cabin in the woods and can't move your furniture in for a few months until you sell your other house is to move all your patio furniture into it. No one is complaining about having a chaise lounge by the fire. And my stash of extra blankets and quilts finally came in handy as well. Pictured here is a blanket crocheted by my grandma many moons ago. She'd really love knowing it was here on the lap of her great grandbabies warming them up after playing in the snow.
Oh, this little corner. The only furniture in our future room. Stunning quilt made by my aunt, the lovely dream catcher I traded herbal tinctures for at Women's Herbal in NH, we picked the lavender bundle this summer @lavenlairfarm and the most beautiful felt and linen custom bunting was made by @larkdolls. Simple, tiny happy love filled handmades. 💛💛
The road to our cabin in NY. The kids and Joe went sledding this morning (or sliding as they call it on this coast). Kids and dogs worn out and we're making the trek back to MA. We'll be back up for turkey dinner and cabin winterizing next week. Just a few more months and this view will be a daily event......
Living their best doggie life. It's a toss up as to who loves it up here at the farm more.
🍂Our member's CSH bundles were shipped out earlier this week and I have three extra ones to offer! I just listed them in the shop.

Dear future homeowners. I hope as each season changes and you drive down to this house your heart fills with gratitude at the beauty all around you. This street has always been a little too fussy and a little too crowded for my preference - yes even with the generous 1+acre lots - but the beauty of these trees still cause me to catch my breath regularly. And might I suggest taking the bumpy, barely maintained, mostly single laned side road in at least once in awhile. Slowing to ten miles an hour to avoid abundant potholes gives you even greater opportunity to soak in these precious suburban woods. It's also where you'll see fox and turkey and deer on the early and late ends of the day. And the view of a full moon near the power lines is the best around. I hope you love this view as much as I do, and that this street fills your heart in the same way my beloved little cabin in the woods does for me. 🏠
Turmeric latte kinda day.
