My friend Esther lives in a big old farm house. It is a cherry farm, a working cherry farm. Esther has her own little store where she sells hand made items and cherry products. My friend Edna makes pies and sells them out there. Wonderful pies, some cherry naturally. She gets up at 4am and bakes her pies and takes them out there fresh.
Esther also has her own little antique shop in what was once the garage there.
I have found many nice linens there. She sells hand painted china and some of the quilted things Edna makes and lots of other unique and pretty things.
Its a unique experience going out there on a summer day. Buy some fresh cherries or chocolate covered cherries. Or try Edna's pies. They sell apples and other fresh produce in season by the side of the road and flowers from a local nursery. They are also wonderful and interesting people. If you are ever lucky enough to go inside the house it is chock full of antiques and beautiful things.

This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
