Friends ask that question often. I don’t mind. Life is full and rich with interests, pastimes, diversions, choices, companions. It’s joy for me to know about the happenings in your life! Each spring day in the Minnesota countryside brings pause for my soul to celebrate episodes of large and small abundance. Sun shines, leaves emerge and life unfolds quickly with all to do this time of year on the RedBarn acreage. Some of these things involve a shovel!
Recently, I was invited to attend a product event in celebration of Earth Day. Each of our creative lives are enriched by the resources that come to surround us. I need to listen close for direction. Divinely led, we connect with the talents, ideas, personalities, family and friends and even the ‘aha moments’ that enter our inner doorway. It seems like such a tiny difference one could make to better care for our earth……. but if we each do….. it must add up. Afterall, there are alot of us making small decisions every day on this spinning unit.
I was excited to show the products that filled my table; apple pies baked from stored late fall apples grown within our chemical-free orchard, cloth napkins crafted from vintage tablecloths and rescued fabrics, contemporary candles made from sustainable and clean-burning soy.
I promised I’d share on my blog for special friends out in the world who said they may need to get ahold of me. It’s a full-heart-feeling when the things I share become a blessing, however small, in someone else’s home and life. Needing a little break from rolling pie crust so, please, no more pie orders! I could fly in and talk you through it if you really need me to. Sewing with beautiful vintage fabrics is best described as way-fun and not like work. Can’t wait to get back to it! Beautiful, clean, sustainable candles are simply one of the little pleasures to brighten a home or space.
I’ll try to keep posting and feel free to let me know under comments or ‘contact’ if you need to reach me, friends.
Wishing you abundance and joy in the ‘countryside of life’.
