High Summer

It's almost the end of July! Wait! Slow down! It has been very beautiful here. Flowers everywhere, green everywhere,
Lots of great garden vegetables - the peas!!! Favas are getting ready.
Frances and I scored excellent bicycles at the Salvation Army, and we are tearing around the back roads of Freedom. Really, it's more like daintily pedaling in first gear while trying to look like we have fine carriage. English accents the whole time - I say! This hill forthcoming looks dreadful! 

A new tank top! Has an elastic at the bottom hem. Allows the fabric to fall nicely - kind of like a bubble hem. Shown with a basic short linen skirt.
A skirted short dress. 30" in length. I wear my brown/black one constantly. Mostly over jeans, or over a swim suit, or with another skirt under that's just slightly longer, and with the same fullness. 
Email me if interested.
Ps - why iron

New apron!

And, therefore, a new thing that I will wear every day! This apron design has proven to be the finest of all that I've tried. And, I love a good apron. The tie around the neck things weigh me down. This one does not tie, it's like an overall. It is roomy, and straight, and has two nice pockets. Aprons are cool.       
If you'd like one let me know.
This one is in light linen. It can be made in various weights, fabrics. Xx.

Just born

We went to the farm over in Albion to pick up the finest milk in the world. As I was putting the coin in the honor box, the farmer came in and said "if you want to see some wicked cute pigs come with me!". Well, I did want to see them! I followed! They were born last night. The tiniest spring piglets all shivering under the lamp.  Misty Brook Farm. Xx
