It's such a full time of year... parades, festivals, school activities, recitals! After the long winter, we go a bit wild with outdoor celebrations around here. I wasn't even sure when I'd get back to you all, but it's high time for another visit to my mother's barn. The meadow season has begun, and this week we were surprised by an explosion of daisies! And those glorious poppies are on their way too... take a look.
For more information about this wild flower meadow and how you can create a "no mow" yard please check here.
When you walk up the stairs to the second floor you enter the former home of the hayloft and barn swallow nesting grounds.
Now it is divided by the stairwell, which is enclosed in galvanized metal. On one side is the bedroom, with that lovely big white bed, and the sewing corner.
On the other side is the workspace where I hold my classes and my mother has all of her supplies stored and inspiration displayed.
The work table is a simple hollow-core door resting on two steel saw horses. My mother keeps it covered in rose colored contractor's paper and surrounded by wonderful old industrial stools and chairs.
Above the table and bank of windows, a new shelf holds some of her collections: vintage toys, cigar boxes, and globes.
There's more... but that will come in another post. It's time to run back outside. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
