Long Forgotten Projects

Uncovering some long forgotten projects as we continue the move to the new work space. And it’s beginning to look like there may be hundreds of them, collected over time. All with good intentions to complete, of course. Anyone else relate?

JoyStudioFProject3It feels good to finally tackle this one.  Oak topped farm table.

Blue Berry Beauty

 

BlueberryRipeBlueberryPick

The blueberries are ready to pick in the Midwest so, we had no other choice but to head out early this morning, to Huckleberry Hollow, berry patch extraordinaire.

BluBrryPick3

The report we heard was that the bushes, were loaded! And they were. Row after row of beautiful blue brambles so, we were off, grabbed our pails and picked till our hearts content. Well, until we had picked twenty six quarts anyway, between four of us. Even then, it was difficult to walk away from the blue bounty.
