Decorating Our Farmhouse

#9. Foraged wild flowers, grasses and berries have made their way into our old farmhouse. On the kitchen table blooming vines mix beautifully with a single branch of Quince.

A glass full of Shenandoah Switch Grass and berries.

I love Oat Grass. It lasts for weeks in bottles of water. The leaves slowly change from green to gold.

Joe-Pye Weed is another favorite of mine. I only cut a few stalks and leave the rest for the butterflies.

Decorating Our Farmhouse #6

I finally finished sewing the skirt for our old cast iron sink in the kitchen. Originally, I wanted to use velcro to tape the skirt on (either underneath or outside). Both ideas didn’t work. Next, I tried three separate fabric panels on tension rods. Presto! That did the trick.

Note- Red and white ticking fabric is from Joann’s. My collection of dishes is vintage Universal Ballerina (1948- 1955). Scott built the shelves for me.
