Summer’s Winding Down

Finally, I am getting a minute to post a “Hello!”  Summer has been a little hectic with some health issues and new puppies!  We will catch you up with a puppy vid soon.  In the meantime, here’s a picture of “Demmy,” our 5 1/2 month old “Dark Chocolate” lab: IMG_20180827_114358843.jpg

He’s my new best buddy 🙂  We had gotten him and his sister, but had lots of trouble with Littermate Syndrome.  We are so thrilled that we found “Josey” (her new name) a new, fantastic home and great humans!

I am finally starting to list my many summertime creations on our Etsy Store, as well. I know I am a little behind, but better late than never! Here’s a little hand painted Unicorn Seahorse pillow I made with a secret pocket in the back:

I have a few rag rugs, some smudge sticks, and a bunch of masks to list. They’ll be up soon!

The fields are getting hayed, and I have been gathering plantain and jewel weed the past few days to make healing balm.

A local farmer mows our fields and we split the yield.

Broadleaf and lanceleaf plantain.

Sorry we’ve been lax on our YouTube videos.  We had to lessen our workload a bit this summer, but I’m starting to feel better, so LOOK OUT! tee hee….

Peace, Vicki

New Items in our Etsy Store

I sent my friend Suzanne of WTFarmGirl a couple treats and her reaction has inspired me to sell them on our Etsy store.

I had made these reusable cotton face masks to help me with the dust when I am working in the barn or woodshed.  They help keep the dust out.  You can wear them either way, whatever suits your fancy, as they are curved to fit your face and the straps are a soft, round elastic.

SUPER hot-off-the-presses-I’m-listing-stuff-right-NOW!

I have no packaging or labels ready yet, but up it goes! I made some awesome apple butter with orange and clove that I call “Sunshine Butter” and also some “Salve So Good!” that has Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Olive oil infused with plantain, Grapeseed Oil infused with Jewelweed, Carrotseed, Cedarwood, Lavender, Red Raspberry Seed, Clove, Calendula, Geranium, Vitamin E, and Rosemary oils.  You see many salves with some ingredients, but mine will rock your socks!  While you’re at it, slather some on dry heels and cover with cotton socks for a mini spa treatment!
