Yesterday the kids, Casper, and I traveled to Hunter's Grove to visit cousin Amy.
At this 200-year-old family homestead, Amy raises chickens ~
And rings the bell for dinner ~
Her pantry is filled ~
And her mantel holds a picture of the 200-year-old home ~
The hens recently started laying again after their winter molt ~
I told Amy if I lived here, I would spend lots of time on the back porch. She said she spends plenty of time there. Can't you see her sitting in the chair, shelling beans and watching the children play and chicks peck ~
Pyrex ... beautiful Pyrex ~
War Gardens art ~
Casper enjoyed a rest in the shade ~
While Amy's cute little farm boy hugs his pup ~
Amy let me try wool felting. She warned that the needle was very sharp. The left picture is before I found out how sharp, and the right picture is after (bandage on left thumb!) ~
Amy's little girl made this felted heart; I love it ~
Hope you enjoyed this trip to Hunter's Grove as much as we did! The weather was a sunny 75 degrees, a perfect day.
UPDATE: This home has been in my husband's family for much of it's 200 year history. The last owner was beloved Aunt Lollie. When she passed away a few years ago, second cousin Amy and her family bought it and moved there. We're so glad it stayed in the family!
