Spread the Love

This lovely lady, Susan came by the shop a few weeks ago. She was hoping to find a new Christy McAdams Chime to replace the one she lost three years ago when her home burned in the Butte Fire. (Yes, it takes YEARS to rebuild and replace) My heart broke as her face fell with…

An Hour a Day…

So I heard Krysten Ritter say on the @davidtennantpod today that an hour of knitting a day keeps the therapist away. Hmmm… is that what keeps my Gram so well adjusted? 😉😋😆 Either way she does gorgeous work and I’m thrilled to have a new batch of her hand knit cloths in stock for you!…

Old Photos

It feels SO GOOD to be back in the shop today!!! Despite my most diligent consults with Dr. Google… I had to finally give in and go to the actual doctor to seek treatment for some mean sinusitis and bronchitis. BUT, I’m on the mend and so happy to come back to the shop and…

Tiptoeing into Spring

Spring is starting to tiptoe into the foothills.🌦 💐 The naturalized daffodils in and around our property are blooming in clumps of twenty or thirty at a time. They’re so pretty! 😍 Some of my favorites though are the ones that pop up as just one or two in the middle of the pasture and…
